Welcome to the cosy Comfort Food Café, where there's kindness in every cup of hot chocolate and the menu is sprinkled with love and happiness…

When Zoe's best friend Kate dies of breast cancer, her whole world is turned upside down. Within hours, she goes from being the wacky neighbour who can barely keep a houseplant alive to a whole new world of responsibility when she realises she's guardian to Kate's 16-year-old daughter, Martha.

Moving to the little village of Budbury in the West Country, Zoe hopes the fresh Dorset sea breeze and the gentle pace of life will help them heal.

Luckily for them both, the friendly community at the Comfort Food Cafe provide listening ears, sage advice, shoulders to cry on, and some truly excellent carrot cake. And when Martha's enigmatic, absent father suddenly turns up, confusing not only Martha but Zoe too, the love and support of their new-found friends is the best present they could ask for…

Coming Home to the Comfort Food Café is the heartbreaking story of Kate, Zoe, and Martha. It all starts with a just in case letter from Kate to Zoe, her lifelong friends, instigator, and fiercest protector, a letter that Kate hoped would never be read, but years later, Zoe found herself raising Kate's 16-year-old daughter! And in Zoe's opinion, doing a poor job of it.

When Zoe spends more time chasing/keeping/rescuing/cleaning up after Martha from one bad situation after another, Zoe decides that drastic measures need to happen. That's when Zoe bundles a seriously annoyed Martha into the car and heads for a fresh start in Dorset.

Coming Home to the Comfort Food Café is a well written and beautiful story, that had me crying, cheering and laughing all the way thru the book. I love both Martha and Zoe's sarcastic and somewhat nutty personalities!  Mind you that is nothing compared to some of the residents of the small village of Budbury!

Coming Home to the Comfort Food Café is book 3 in the Comfort Food Café series but it can totally be read as a stand-alone book, which is exactly what I did, and I absolutely loved it.

I give Coming Home to the Comfort Food Café 5 stars
