The third of the friends in this tiny seaside town has her story now, and Amy’s story is a lovely one. Running the bookshop that is an adjunct to Milly’s Café, she’s such a perfect choice for the manager: well read, innovative, always willing (and able) to draw people into the wonder that is books and reading. Unfortunately, she’s got little to no self-esteem and is incredibly shy – perhaps some of it comes from her being dumped at the altar some three years earlier, or her move to the Far East when a child, only to return with her mother when the marriage went pear shaped. But, much is to be attributed to her mother’s rather pointed (and often cruel) critiques and utter lack of awareness of how they sting. From comments to her weight, clothing and lack of a man, Amy’s got only a handful of non-self-chastising moments, usually when she’s tucked up with a book or talking with Patrick. Of course, she’s second guessing every utterance from herself and him, and is utterly in love with the Irish author – his wit, charm, accent and kindness have her (and most women he encounters) under a spell. But, it’s Halloween approaching, and aside from wrapping up the ‘literary course’ that she planned at the behest of some book club members, she also has to ‘manage’ the various locals in the book club, decorate for the holiday, plan a launch of Patrick’s latest books and somehow deal with a rash of vandalism that has hit her shop (and others) in town. With her clear need for people to be in harmony, a bit of spine in taking on her mother and her bad behavior, and a shot in the arm of confidence from starting to do things for herself with pushes from both Tash and Emma – she’s faced her biggest embarrassment in the form of her ex-fiance, and emerged stronger. Until Patrick disappears for weeks after kissing her – and leaves her wondering just how she’d be enough. These three books are lovely small-town stories that are full of friendship, unique characters, a touch of angst (both self-imposed and not) and lots of cake. How could you not have cake with the bakery/café to hand – and well – Cake. Hill has managed to write in a sort of ‘shorthand’ for the three women we spend time with, as they’ve all known one another for years, but allowed the influence of the outside world and some rather unique characters to influence the moments. Combine this with the lovely ebb and flow of tourists and locals, the ever-changing sea and sky, and plenty of happy moments and this is a lovely series to just while away the hours with. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I really enjoy my visits to The Little Book Cafe.  This is the third book in The Little Book Cafe series and tells Amy's story. Georgia Hill has written many many wonderful books.  She is able to create a world that I would happily live in. Wonderful characters, beautiful animals, fun neighbours and love around every corner.... what more could you want?  I would highly recommend this author who writes sweet reads. Thank you to NetGalley, Harper Impulse and Georgia Hill for the opportunity to read and review this novel.

What a charming place The Little Book Cafe is. Set in seaside England, The Little Book Cafe series picks up where The Cupcake Cafe series leaves off. Amy manages this fabulous bookstore in Berecombe and introduces us to the many characters who frequent the store. Amy grew up in the town prior to moving to Singapore for her father’s job. When her father divorces her mother, mom & Amy move back to Berecombe. Amy’s mother is constantly critiquing Amy’s life, especially since Amy was jilted nearly at the altar. Amy has found herself managing a bookstore and living in an attic apartment which makes her very happy. Sadly, though, with the jilting and her mother, she struggles with her self-esteem. Amy’s friends Tash & Emma try to encourage her, and Patrick, the handsome author who is often at the bookstore, seems to fancy her, but Amy doesn’t have the confidence to find out. This is the third book in The Little Book Cafe series. I had never read any of the previous books by Georgia Hill, but having enjoyed this one immensely, I think I will go right back to The Cupcake Cafe and start there. Hill has created a space that I would love to visit. The characters are wonderful - from the animal loving Tash to the aloof Marti, each woman brings a different vibe to the story. Grab the new compilation that has all three stories in one and enjoy!!
