Publisher's Summary

He's the book. She's the movie.

A bubbly personality and a great job in social media didn’t mean that Willow Lawson had it all. Her love life was distant memory and her social life only work related. The maddening demands of life seemed to get in the way of finding time for herself or her friends.

She starts the Pepper Lane Club as a chance to step away from her busy schedule once a month to reconnect with her friends.

Thomas Greer, the proprietor of the Pepper Lane Café, annoys her. He’s her complete opposite; unsociable, serious, old-fashioned, and dead-set against social media.

Always game for a challenge, Willow decides to take him on as a client. She’s going to prove to Thomas that he needs her help. She knew she would be successful, she just didn’t know she would lose her heart along the way.

Can Willow fall in love with a man that doesn’t respect her profession? Will Thomas let go of his preconceptions long enough to get to know the real Willow? Enjoy this sweet romance as Willow finds love and friendship in the first book in the Pepper Lane series.

Six women. Six stories. Six chances of love. One café.

The Pepper Lane series follows the lives of six women as they share life, love, and heartache once a month at the Pepper Lane Club. They might be an unlikely group of friends, but it takes all types to form a tribe.

I was surprised at this

So I am not a fan of Romance. But this was fun. I liked the story and the idea of a girls wine group. I liked that the girls had issues.
While some of the themes are obvious, I felt a connection with the characters so it didn't seem too bad.
What I didn't like was the fake Italian accent. lol. Almost a deal breaker.
This leaves you wanting for more.
Great job!

I was offered a credit in exchange for an honest review.

So much fun!

Fell in love with The Pepper Lane Club - what a fun group. Willow has her own thoughts and ideas and sticks with them and doesn't mind that they aren't' in line with what everyone else thinks/does. Yes, it's a girly story but not over the top sickeningly girly. I found it well written and kept me entertained all the way through.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Very girly. If you don’t like fashion, hair and nails, don’t read!

I am the opposite of a girly girl. It’s very hard for me to relate to women who are all into fashion, hair and nails. I find women like this to be very fake with no substance.

As a result, this story wasn’t my cup of tea. It was very “gushy.” I was however, surprised, to find a person with feelings in the character of Willow. But you needed to look deep beneath all the “gush.” Since this is the first of the series and we will get to know some of the other ladies mentioned too, I may be interested in the stories of some of the other characters, as they will come from such different backgrounds. Perhaps I will be able to relate to one of the other lady’s story.

Amusing, entertaining romantic comedy

This light-hearted comedy kept me entertained with Willow's antics as she tried to get thru day to day life unscathed - whether that be from a broken heart or from her boss' ire. More fun unfolds as she and her friends create a dinner club: The Pepper Lane Club. Now they have to make sure the cafe stays in business or they won't have a place to meet and will have to rename their group! Love and shenanigans both find Willow along the way and you are swept along with her on a fun ride! Highly recommend!

Honest review

I normal don’t read or listen to this genre but this was definitely a cute and funny contemporary read. Willow is quite quirky and had me laughing throughout the book. She wasn’t really looking for love after her last relationship but love seemed to find her. And her friendships with her sister and the Pepper lane club ladies was quit interesting and fun. I’d definitely can’t wait to listen to the rest of the stories.

Chick lit

Fun, easy to listen story of Willow and her friends who start a dinner club at the Pepper Lane Café. We get know the characters through the story, although the romance is somewhat predicable.
The narration was good, but did not enjoy the Italian accents.

Feelgood rom-com

Meet the women of the Pepper Lane Club, started by twins Willow & Riley. Willow works in marketing and decides that creating a club of like minded women is a great idea. Kind of like a book club, but not. They start meeting at the Pepper Lane Cafe once a month and that's where the stories begin. She approaches the owner Thomas to market the cafe, as no one has heard of it, but he's not interested. Can Willow change his mind?

A fun Rom-com type read that will definitely leave you feeling gruntled!

Willow

I must admit that the beginning really did not capture my attention but as the story progressed I wanted to know more about the characters. The narrator unfortunately put me off, she was not bad but she would pause at odd places and this jerked me out of the story.
Other then this the book is actually quite good and will be looking up the other books in this series.
This is for those who love books about romance and friendship.

Review

I loved this the first book in the Pepper Lane Club series. The story was fun and just the right combination of romance and friendship and life in general. I loved the characters and how they felt real and relateble. I loved how the author wove the story with little surprises and makes me want to know the story of each lady of the club. I definately will be looking out for the other books in the series.

An enjoyable listen

An enjoyable story introducing us to the first of the Pepper Lane Club girls, Willow. I like the way you get introduced to all the characters from the future books with little teasers that leave you wanting to find out more about each of them. Very clever! I will certainly be listening to the rest of the series. I liked Willow as a character and listening to her ‘story’.
