LoveReading View on The Lemon Tree Cafe

Originally published in four parts, this is the story in a single volume.  If you are familiar with The Plumberry School of Comfort then you will recognise some of the characters here.  We concentrate on Rosie Featherstone, her sister and their grandmother as they fall in love, face their pasts, uncover secrets and embrace second chances.  The lovely Lemon Tree Café eventually thrives after many drawbacks.  Because this was published as a series it is crammed full of incident, cliff hangers and drama for the end of each section must draw you into the next.  And it certainly does.  Partway through Rosie and her grandmother go to Italy to put some family secrets to rest.  Upon their return they give the café a full Italian make-over and business flourishes.  This is a delightful, romantic comedy, charming, and warm, affectionate and irresistible. Sarah Broadhurst

The Lemon Tree Cafe Synopsis

The Lemon Tree Cafe was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package. When Rosie Featherstone finds herself unexpectedly jobless, the offer to help her beloved Italian grandmother out at the Lemon Tree Cafe - a little slice of Italy nestled in the rolling hills of Derbyshire - feels like the perfect way to keep busy. Surrounded by the rich scent of espresso, delicious biscotti and juicy village gossip, Rosie soon finds herself falling for her new way of life. But she is haunted by a terrible secret, one that even the appearance of a handsome new face can't quite help her move on from. Then disaster looms and the cafe's fortunes are threatened . . . and Rosie discovers that her nonna has been hiding a dark past of her own. With surprises, betrayal and more than one secret brewing, can she find a way to save the Lemon Tree Cafe and help both herself and Nonna achieve the happy endings they deserve?
