'This is everything I love! Cozy small town romance, fall vibes, coffee house vibes, and grumpy x sunshine trope that was done perfectly!'
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ NetGalley Reviewer
When Jeanie’s aunt gifts her the beloved Pumpkin Spice Café in the small town of Dream Harbor, Jeanie jumps at the chance for a fresh start away from her very dull desk job.
Logan is a local farmer who avoids Dream Harbor’s gossip at all costs. But Jeanie’s arrival disrupts Logan’s routine and he wants nothing to do with the irritatingly upbeat new girl, except that he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her.
Will Jeanie’s happy-go-lucky attitude win over the grumpy-but-gorgeous Logan, or has this city girl found the one person in town who won’t fall for her charm, or her pumpkin spice lattes…
The Pumpkin Spice Cafe is a cozy romantic mystery for fans of Gilmore Girls, with a grumpy x sunshine dynamic, a small-town setting and a HEA guaranteed!

She loves finding books with the perfect balance of sweetness and spice and strives for that in her own writing. If you ever wished you lived in Stars Hollow (or that Luke and Lorelai would just get together already!) then her books are definitely for you.
Watching this in the autumn is perfect! The romance was good and spice was alright but didn’t make my heart flutter. Overall, easy read!
Didn’t live up to the hype
This book was really hyped up everywhere on social media platforms and to be honest it was sweet, but it defiantly didn’t live up to my expectations…
It was an easy read and It had the potential to be one of the best sweet autumnal romances, but unfortunately I just didn’t really feel it. It was sweet and in some places funny, but I do think everything happened so quickly! Especially towards the end. I was reading the last chapter and then the epilogue was next and I was shocked I’d reached the end! There could have been so much more.
Overall if you want something to read that’s easy and autumn themed ish then it’s a good one.
I enjoyed the wholesome vibes with the sprinkle of spicy in there fantastic read excited for the next one!
