The Christmas Café at Seashell Cove by Karen Clarke @karenclarke123 @bookouture #bookreview

77 days until Christmas!!!🤶

Another Christmas book I had the pleasure to review, this book has a lot of love and a little Christmas! Thank you so much too Noelle for my invitation and to Karen Clarke for her festive story🎄

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the café at Seashell Cove, where there’s hot chocolate to keep you warm – and the man of your dreams could be waiting…

Interior designer Tilly Campbell loves being carefree and single. But her latest job is redecorating the cosy local café for a Christmas party, and when her friends confess their plans for the big night – including a proposal, a declaration of love and a pregnancy announcement – Tilly starts to wonder if she might be missing out…

Transforming the café into a winter wonderland is more of a challenge than she thought, so when she bumps into gorgeous newcomer Seth, Tilly welcomes the distraction. Seth is a single father, struggling to settle his son Jack into their new cottage, and Tilly is determined to help them make their house into a home in time for Christmas.

But with the café still in chaos just days before the party it looks like it’s going to be a Christmas to remember for all the wrong reasons… With friends old and new relying on her, can Tilly save the Christmas party?

And could she finally find love waiting for her under the mistletoe?

A heart-warming, hilarious read about friendship, family and the meaning of Christmas. Perfect for fans of Sue Moorcroft, Holly Martin and Debbie Johnson! 

My Thoughts

Fun, fluffy, and festive!

This is the third book in the Seashell Cove series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone…. in fact I have only read the second book, time permitting I will get back to the first book and read Cassie’s story! This is really a story about love and friendship with some holiday cheer sprinkled in… so if you are a bit of a Scrooge and not a fan of Christmas books, I think this will work perfectly for you😉

This is Tilly’s story, but don’t fear we get plenty of glimpses into Meg’s life…. Tilley has taken on the job of turning the café into a winter wonderland, a bigger task than she had anticipated… after finding out all that is being revealed at the Christmas party she feels even more pressure, but will Tilly find a love of her own? Seth is new to town a single father with a young boy… A young boy that Tilly “saves” One day at the beach, and so Tilly and Seth meet! SO will the mistletoe do its magic???

I really liked Tilly from the previous book so I was happy to get her story… but wow she has quite the complicated relationship with her sister Bridget… not sure who was more grumpy and demanding Bridget or Seth’s mom Felicity? They both were acting like the Grinch that stole Christmas, their hearts were two sizes too small! Seth was a good guy and a good dad, he just needed to stand up to his mom…

This really was a will they? Won’t they? Love story full of laughter and heartwarming moments… Seth and Tilly both had some baggage, but Who doesn’t? A fun friends to lovers story with a holiday vibe🎄

Recommend to fans of romance, friendship, winter, and Cheer🥂
