I thoroughly enjoyed this. The story made me want to immerse myself in the location and hang out with the characters in a way I haven't felt about a ..Show More »book in a long time. It starts out a little sad and stressful for Evie when she first inherits a little seaside Cafe from her beloved Aunt. Her staff is horrible and some of the townsfolk are unkind to her at first when they mistakenly think she is there is sell the Cafe to developers. But things get better and better through hard work, a few stumbles, some great ideas, and the help of some great secondary characters, from her best friend who comes down from Oxford to help her out for a time, and new people she meets along the way. The locals finally realize what a good heart she has and the cafe becomes an important centre of the community. I really needed a feel good story right now and this hit just the right chord. The narrator was also wonderful. She does such a great job of all the different characters, both male and female voices, different accents, elderly women, children - they all sounded distinct and appealing. I always knew who was speaking. I have listened to a couple other books Jane Collingwood has narrated and she really is becoming one of my favourites. I am definitely going to check out some more books by Lucy Diamond as well.
