My Review:

What a delightful, refreshing and moving story! Set mainly in the idyllic Sunset Bay, and especially Dolly’s Diner, it tells the family saga of the sisters, Mia and Laurie Chapman. Events have driven them apart but fate intervenes again when Laurie makes unwanted discoveries, abandoning her city life, job and boyfriend and running to her sister. How will Mia react to her sister reappearing in her life? Now is the time for them to uncover what went wrong in their relationship after their Grandma sadly died and to explore the possibilities of putting things right again. Add a couple of handsome heroes to the mix and you’ve got an enthralling family saga seasoned with the possibility of romance!

This author is an accomplished word artist, applying her superb talent effectively to select the most evocative similes and metaphors together with descriptive language. Whilst the story is largely predictable there are unexpected surprises along the way. The community of the lively, small town and key members of it are portrayed well, being brought to life in the pages of the story.

This is a ‘feel good’ story, heart-warming, with plenty of humorous interludes, lots of love and a supportive community set in a picturesque seaside Cornish town – and the iconic Dolly’s Diner!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.


There’s no place like home… Enough is enough! The always perfect Laurie Chapman had jumped in her car and raced as fast as she could from London heading to Sunset Bay and (she hopes!) the open arms of her estranged sister…

Mia Chapman loves running Dolly’s Diner in the picture-perfect coastal Cornish town of Sunset Bay. Now that her and Grandma Dolly’s dream is finally a reality Mia has never been prouder! Until Laurie suddenly turns up on her doorstep… How can she forgive the sister who walked away?

Once upon a time Mia and Laurie were best friends. Back together after so long, the time has come for the sisters to figure out what went so wrong all those years ago – and whether they can ever put it right!

An uplifting romantic comedy about sisters, friendship and the love of good food.
