Thank you for stopping by I'm very happy to be sharing my review for Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café as part of the blog tour. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
Meet Andorra Pett; with her trusty sidekick, she’s taken over a derelict café. On a mining station. It just happens to be orbiting Saturn!
She’s hoping for a fresh start, away from all the drama of her old life. It’s a chance to relax and start again in a place where nobody knows anything about her or her past.
But the café holds a secret, and secrets have a habit of coming out; whether you want them to or not. And being accident prone doesn’t help. The more you try to pretend that you know what’s going on, the worse it gets.
Andorra’s plans for peace and quiet get lost amid the revelations and skulduggery and she soon realises that the fate of the whole station lies in her hapless hands.
In space, you can still trip over your feet; the question is, will you land upright?

I was so intrigued when I saw the description for this book along with seeing the fabulous cover. It was such an easy decision to pick up this book and I'm so glad that I did.
I really enjoyed this story and this is mainly down to the fact that this story had a little bit of everything to keep me interested. It definitely had a dash of cosy crime/mystery about it as Andorra (Andi) decides to do a little bit of investigating after making a discovery in her new business venture. Even though it is set in space it doesn't have too much of a sci-fi feel to it, just enough to make the plot that little bit more interesting.
There is a wonderful array of characters that Andi meets as she gets her cafe up and running. Andi is brilliant and I couldn't help but like her especially her knack of getting into trouble. I loved her friendship with Cy they made such a great team with lots of fun moments along the way.
It's a wonderfully fun story with an added mystery and I loved putting the clues together but there were surprises along the way to keep me on my toes. I raced through the story in no time at all and my interest was kept completely.
Five stars from me!

A native of Brixham in Devon, Richard Dee's family left Devon when he was in his teens and settled in Kent. Leaving school at 16 he briefly worked in a supermarket, then went to sea and travelled the world in the Merchant Navy, qualifying as a Master Mariner in 1986. Coming ashore to be with his growing family, he used his sea-going knowledge in several jobs, including Marine Insurance Surveyor and Dockmaster at Tilbury, before becoming a Port Control Officer in Sheerness and then at the Thames Barrier in Woolwich. In 1994 he was head-hunted and offered a job as a Thames Estuary Pilot. In 1999 he transferred to the Thames River Pilots, where he regularly took vessels of all sizes through the Thames Barrier and upriver as far as H.M.S. Belfast and through Tower Bridge. In all, he piloted over 3,500 vessels in a 22-year career with the Port of London Authority. Richard was offered part time working in 2010, which allowed him to return to live in Brixham, where he took up writing and blogging. He retired in 2015, when he set up and ran a successful Organic bakery, supplying local shops and cafés. The urge to write eventually overtook the urge to bake but Richard still makes bread for friends and family. Richard is married with three adult children and two grandchildren.
