Blog Tour: The Reopening of Dandelion Café by Jenny Oliver

Welcome to my contribution to the Blog Tour for this delicious book!

Blurb“There’s nowhere more deliciously welcoming

When Annie White steps back onto Cherry Pie Island, it’s safe to say Dandelion Café has definitely seen better days! Her childhood home on the Thames-side island idyll is exactly the same retreat from the urban bustle of London as she remembers – but Annie’s not convinced that new owner of The Dandelion Cafe is a title she’s thrilled about.

One (shoestring budget) makeover, a few delightful additions to the somewhat retro menu and a lot of cherry pie tastings later, The Dandelion Café is ready for its grand reopening! But however delicious the legendary cherry pie, that’s definitely not enough to make her come home for good. However, the islanders themselves are a different story – but is Annie ready to let the island, and all those that live there, become her recipe for true happiness?

The Grand Reopening of Dandelion Café is Book 1 in The Cherry Pie Island series. Each part of Cherry Pie Island can be read and enjoyed as a standalone story – or as part of the utterly delightful series.”

My review:

Title: The Grand Reopening of the Dandelion Cafe  (Cherry Pie Island – Part One)

Author: Jenny OliverThe Grand Reopening of the Dandelion Cafe

Publisher: Carina

Published: March 27th, 2015

Rating: 5/5

Another delicious romance from Jenny Oliver! Annie White grew up on Cherry Pie Island but left to develop her own design business. Now she returns to see ‘The Dandelion Café’ which she has recently inherited. She hasn’t decided what she’s going to do with it. Her brother wants her to sell it. The people working there hope she won’t. She never does what her brother wants . . . On a totally shoestring budget she works with the islanders to rejuvenate the café, rekindling relationships along the way with family and friends – and a pug!

This is book one in the series and is a delightful story with great characters looking for the recipe for love and happiness – delectable! I really want to read more books in this series and will certainly be looking out for their release! I highly recommend this brilliant, chicklit  and will certainly be looking out for other books by this author in future!
