Chick lit

The Christmas Café at Seashell Cove by Karen Clarke


I have read and reviewed the previous two books of the series:

The Cafe at Seashell Cove The Bakery at Seashell Cove

This the last book of the series has turned out to be my favourite of the three. Now I am actually wondering why I drifted away from reading this genre in between my other reading, just to keep things fresh. I intend to rectify that error.

Tilly Campbell is the last of the trio who were introduced to us in the beginning of the series ( do check out the reviews of the other two as well by clicking on the cover pages). She was in the background with a finger in multiple pies, she seemed to be on the move too much, to be pinned down enough to get a good look at. This book gives us a good chance to do just that.Tilly’s elder sister is home and a good chunk of the story is the balancing out of their previous relationship with something brighter and happier ( it is not a spoiler, this is the beauty of the genre). That was actually my favourite part of this book. There is a new man in town who is trying to build a relationship with his young son. Tilly ends up right in the middle of that endeavor and the fact that everyone seems to want her to get done with the building of the new function hall since everyone seems to have something hidden up their sleeves. It was a well written way to put a bow on the three friends happily ever afters. I really liked being inside Tilly’s head. I just felt the ending bits were a little rushed but that said, this is a perfect read on a rainy evening!
