After yet another failed romance, twenty-six-year-old Callie Fulbright is giving up on love. She’s determined to throw all her efforts into her very own, brand-new café: The Cosy Kettle. Serving hot tea, cherry tarts and a welcoming smile to the friendly locals proves to be the perfect distraction, and Callie feels a flush of pride at the fledgling business she’s built. 

But her new-found confidence is soon put to the test when her gorgeous ex reappears in the quaint little village. She’ll never forget the heartache Noah caused her years ago, but when they bump into each other on the cobbled streets of Honeyford she can’t help but feel a flutter in her chest… 

As Callie and Noah share laughter and memories, she starts to wonder if this could be her second chance at happiness. But when Callie discovers that someone is mysteriously trying to ruin the café’s reputation… she has an awful suspicion that Noah knows who’s involved. 

Was she wrong to ever trust him again? And can she find out who’s behind the lies and rumors, before it’s too late for the Cosy Kettle?

Liz Eeles is back with a new series called The Cosy Kettle and I'm super excited to be reading the first book, though I have to say I was a little nervous, as the Salt Bay series was excellent, but rather than worry, let just jump into the book. 

We open the book and find your heroine Callie Fulbright running on her way to work while taking stock on her 26 years of life! From her loss of family to breakups and then to dealing with her grandfather, who has suddenly found a new lease of life and is getting into protest, slang, and everything that could potentially embarrass Callie. But before that even happens Callie has to make a good impression on her new boss. But Callie more than makes a good impression with Fiona, she inspires a new business idea!  

This book is a fantastic start to this new series, the author has written such friendly and loveable characters, and tells us Callie's story in such a way, we feel like she is one of our best friends. In fact, I don't think there is a character that I dislike in this book, everyone seems to redeem themselves in the end, and I find that is such a rarity nowadays. As normal the writing is excellent, and you feel like you are a friend with everyone from the first chapter. 

I give New Starts and Cherry Tarts at the Cosy Kettle 5 stars! 




Liz writes funny, feel-good romantic comedies set in the Cotswolds and Cornwall, in the UK. She was brought up in Gloucestershire so the Cotswolds are 'home', and she fell in love with Cornwall during family holidays there as a child. She has happy memories of building sandcastles in the rain, and listening to the foghorn - though the sun did come out sometimes.

Liz worked as a journalist for years and brought up a family on the south coast of England, all the while writing fiction on the quiet. After being short-listed in a couple of national novel-writing competitions, her dream of being a published author came true when she was signed up by Bookouture. 

When not writing, Liz likes walking by the sea, catching up with friends and binge-watching box sets.
