Spring at The Cosy Cottage Cafe by Rachel Griffiths @authorRG #Review

ARC received from author.

Artist Honey Blackwell is happy with her life. Well, almost. She lives in the picturesque village of Heatherlea, has three close friends and a soft spot for local supply teacher Dane Ackerman. If only she could put her past behind her and embrace the present.

Dane is working hard to prove himself at the village primary school and doesn’t really have time for love, but he’s drawn to Honey and hopes she feels the same. When a permanent teaching position is advertised in Heatherlea, he faces stiff competition to secure it. 

As Honey and Dane deal with the ups and downs of life, will they be able to find a way to be together, or will they have to accept that sometimes love just isn’t enough?

This is the fourth short story in The Cosy Cottage Café series.

I'm always delighted to read a book from this series and what with the weather we have been having I really needed a dose of Spring. As ever it was lovely to be back in Heatherlea and catching up with the characters from the previous books. However don't let this put you off from starting with Spring at The Cosy Cottage Cafe as I would class each book as a standalone. What I would say is that you really are missing out on a gorgeous and heartwarming series of books.

Rachel Griffiths has created yet again a delightful story that has a little bit of everything but especially true friendships. Even though they have busy lives the characters are always there for each other through both the good and the bad. I have to also admit to wanting to visit The Cosy Cottage Cafe as I really wish that I could try the delicious food! 

In this story we get to know Honey who on the surface is pretty happy with her life. However her friendship with Dane is a little up in the air, especially as there seems to be a stumbling block somewhere. As the story progresses there is an emotional side that I have to admit left me with a few tears but it was sensitively written and from the heart. The great thing about this series is that there is a great balance of emotion and fun moments so you do get a rounded story. With this book being a novella it can be a fine line to have a plot that isn't rushed but Rachel Griffiths manages this perfectly and gives the reader a story that has love, friendship and food!

A special mention has to go to the names of Honey's chickens, I loved this part of the book as I love the idea of keeping them and having fresh eggs. Although I don't have a garden so that would be a pretty major issue! 

After finishing this book I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series!

Spring at The Cosy Cottage Cafe is uplifting and hopeful with wonderful witty writing that guarantees a few giggles along the way!

Five stars from me!

With thanks to Rachel Griffiths for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
