Rae reads... Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson

About the book:

Becca Fletcher hates Christmas so much, she’s considering getting ‘Bah Humbug!’ tattooed on her forehead. She has her reasons for being Little Miss Grinch; Reasons that make this the very worst time of year for her.

Now, though, she can’t avoid her version of ho-ho-hell – because she’s travelling to the Comfort Food Cafe to spend the festive season with her sister Laura, and her family. She’s expecting mulled wine, the smell of pine trees, 24-hour Christmas movie marathons and all kinds of very merry torture.

But little does Becca know that the Comfort Food Cafe is like no other place on earth. Perched on a snow-covered hill on a windswept bay, it’s a place full of friendship; a place where broken hearts can heal, and a place where new love can blossom. It’s a place where Becca’s Christmas miracle really could happen – if only she can let it…

Inviting readers new and old to pull up a cosy armchair, Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe is the novella-length follow-up to the 2016 best-seller Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe.

My thoughts:

I read Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe a few months back and loved it. Then as soon as I saw Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe I couldn't resist!

So what did I think... 

I thought it was a great way to start the book with both Becca and Laura's past Christmas experiences. It really helped give a good background for understanding Becca's character. 

Even though Becca isn't a happy people person I found her really engaging. She is witty and I found myself either laughing or smiling at the things she said. Debbie Johnson has written a wonderful and complicated character!

It was also lovely to catch up with Laura and Matt. I loved their chemistry and relationship in Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe. In fact it was great to see all of the characters who live in Budbury. It just felt like revisiting old friends. 

The story grabbed me and pulled me in and I really didn't want to stop reading. The pace of the story was spot on and kept moving right the way through. Even if you haven't read Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe this book can still easily be read as a standalone. 


The story and people at the Comfort Food Cafe left me with a smile once more. This book is packed full of fun, emotion and romance!

A gorgeous Christmas story that will leave you with a warm glow!

Five stars from me!
