The first in a gorgeous new series from the author of Summer at the Cornish Cafe. Summer is on the horizon, and the people of Porthmellow are eagerly awaiting the annual food festival. For Sam Lovell, organising the summer festival in her hometown is one of the highlights of her year. She loves to see Porthmellow’s harbour packed with happy visitors and being on the committee has provided a much-needed distraction from the drama in her family life (and the distinct lack of it in her love life). When their star guest pulls out with only a few weeks to go, everyone’s delighted when a London chef who grew up locally steps in at the last minute. But Gabe Matthias is the last person Sam was expecting to see, and his return to Porthmellow will change her quiet coastal life for ever. Praise for the Author: “Filled with warm and likeable characters. Great fun!” JILL MANSELL.
