Welcome to The Starfish Café – where you will find stunning views, delicious food and lifelong friendships.
Two broken hearts.
Since she inherited The Starfish Café, Hollie has poured her heart into the business, striving to keep her mother’s traditions and warm-hearted spirit alive. But behind closed doors Hollie is searching for true happiness, as she grieves the tragic loss of her family who were once the beating heart of the café…
An unexpected meeting.
Jake lives by two rules: don’t let anyone get close and don’t talk about what happened. Little does he know that a chance meeting at The Starfish Café, facilitated by a fluffy lost dog, is about to turn his world upside down…
The chance to love again.
Can Hollie and Jake break down the barriers that have been holding them back from finding love and happiness, before Christmas comes around? Afterall, with courage, nothing is impossible…
Hollie inherited the Starfish Cafe she puts her all in to making the business a success, something she is more determined to achieve due to the devastating loss of her mother who was the heart and soul of the much loved cafe.
From the outside, it looks as though Hollie has it all figured out….but inside, she wants to find a meaningful relationship, someone who she can share her life with and help heal the whole that has been left in her heart. That is when the reclusive Jake walks into the cafe, as well as her life and changes both their lives forever.
They are two very different people wo ultimately want the same things in life- to love and be loved in return, but with Jake reluctant to open himself up to the possibility of moving forward with his life and Hollie still healing from her own tragic losses, we are left asking whether or not they have what it takes to make one another happy this festive season.
The moment I started reading this gorgeous story by the wonderful Jessica Redland I found myself completely and utterly immersed in the world in which she brought to life on the pages of this book. The characters are intriguing and realistic, with most of them having some rather relatable life experiences too – all of which really allows you to connect with them as the story progresses. With a perfectly structured storyline that has your heart bursting with happiness by the end, this is a book I would urge everyone else to read and fall in love with too.
