My name is Willow Longville. I live in a village called Budbury on the stunning Dorset coast with my mum Lynnie, who sometimes forgets who I am. I’m a waitress at the Comfort Food Café, which is really so much more than a café … it’s my home.
For Willow, the ramshackle café overlooking the beach, together with its warm-hearted community, offers friendship as a daily special and always has a hearty welcome on the
menu. But when a handsome stranger blows in on a warm
spring breeze, Willow soon realises that her quiet country
life will be changed forever.
Curl up with this gorgeous novel and make yourself
at home at the Comfort Food Café.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The wild, wonderful—and a little bit wacky—Willow has become the sole carer for her mother, Lynnie. With dementia taking its toll on their relationship they both decide to keep intimate and soul-baring journals. The fourth book in the series, Sunshine at the Comfort Food Café returns to the charming coastal village of Badbury for more gentle, life-affirming drama. Here, we meet their community of supportive and spirited friends and there's, of course, a romance blossoming at the Comfort Food Café. When Willow meets eccentric Tom, she discovers they have the strangest things in common (including a particularly quirky fascination with surviving a zombie apocalypse). Is Willow having a second chance at her happily ever after?
A warm, funny and thought provoking read
This book is fabulous. I laughed out loud and tried to inconspicuously wipe tears from my eyes! Loved this story. Off to find more, what an amazing author 👌🏼
Crazy characters coping with real life issues.
Caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s is one of the main story lines, but the book is not depressing, though it doesn’t hide the problems. The characters in the Comfort Food Cafe all come with a back story, but are coping and enjoying life. Willow and her mum have been background characters in previous books and this is their story.
