‘Full of quirky characters, friendship and humour, you will devour this engaging and heartwarming novel in one sitting’ – Sunday Express
Welcome to the cosy Comfort Food Café, where there's kindness in every cup of hot chocolate and the menu is sprinkled with love and happiness…
When Zoe's best friend Kate dies of breast cancer, her whole world is turned upside down. Within hours, she goes from being the wacky neighbour who can barely keep a houseplant alive to a whole new world of responsibility when she realises she's guardian to Kate's 16-year-old daughter, Martha.
Moving to the little village of Budbury in the West Country, Zoe hopes the fresh Dorset sea breeze and the gentle pace of life will help them heal.
Luckily for them both, the friendly community at the Comfort Food Cafe provide listening ears, sage advice, shoulders to cry on, and some truly excellent carrot cake. And when Martha's enigmatic, absent father suddenly turns up, confusing not only Martha but Zoe too, the love and support of their new-found friends is the best present they could ask for…
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Debbie Johnson’s Comfort Food Café series is always a recipe for a delightful read: a sprinkling of wit, a dash of pathos and a generous spoonful of compassion. This third addition perfectly balances those ingredients in a cosy winter read. When Zoe’s best friend passes away she becomes guardian to Kate’s sweet-hearted but grief-stricken teenage daughter Martha. Together they move to Devon in search of a new start and find the Comfort Food Café, which quickly feels like home. Johnson’s kind-hearted (and often wacky) characters filled us with life-affirming warmth as Zoe and Martha find hope for the future once again.
