They say revenge is sweet and there’s nothing sweeter than chocolate! Cheryl, Connie and Della, respectively in their 30’s, 40’s and 50’s could be your neighbours, colleagues or relatives. Each of them has been let down in some way and is feeling unloved and angry, each of them makes a huge life-changing decision. Milly Johnson writes in short snappy chapters about real life, with added special ingredients of friendship, encouragement and support (plus a sneaky helping of just deserts). The descriptions of the alchemy of chocolates being crafted are delicious, you can almost smell and taste them. Afternoon Tea at the Sunflower Cafe has you rooting for these ladies and is a winning recipe for a few hours down time and enjoyment. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Afternoon Tea at the Sunflower Cafe by Milly Johnson

Her marriage is all washed up. It's time for a clean start...Connie Diamond has always been her husband Jimmy's 'best girl' - or so she thought. But then she discovers that he's been playing away for the past twenty-four years, and that the chocolates she believed he bought her as a sign of his love were just a cover-up, and she is determined to get revenge. Along with Della Frostick, Jimmy's right-hand woman at his cleaning firm, Diamond Shine, Connie decides to destroy Jimmy's life from the inside. Together they will set up a rival business called Lady Muck, and along with the cleaning ladies who meet at the Sunflower Cafe, they'll make him wish he had never so much as looked at another woman. Then Connie meets the charming Brandon Locke, a master chocolatier, whose kind chocolate-brown eyes start to melt her soul. Can the ladies of the Sunflower Cafe help Connie scrub away the hurt? And can Brandon cure her affliction and make her smile again...?
