Springtime At The Cider Kitchen, the a story of second chances, family, and dark secrets.

We start the book meeting Caroline Hemingway, and she is in the unusual position of being at her late brother's wife wedding! But little did she know that being there would lead to a who change in her life, when she is offered the job of running the new restaurant for her ex sister-in-law's new family! Or that she would end up in bed with Jonathan Carter, the man who later would become her boss.

So after escaping the rat race, Caroline is happy to settle in to life in Little Somerby, and working for the Carter's of Cider Farm. But just when everything is going so well for her, someone comes back into her life, and tries to destroy her!

When I settled down to read Springtime in the Cider Kitchen I was excited, being a British ex-pat, I love to read books from British authors, I think it's because they relate better to the locations their books are set in, the intricate mannerisms the only people who live in that country will fully understand. And I will say that the author Fay Keenan definitely has that. And for most of the book, everything flowed nicely...then Bam! A sort of crazy plotline, when nothing is really explained in detail, and goes just a little haywire! And for me that spoiled the book a little; as I was working my way through one emotionally charged situation, another 2 get shoved on top all at once, and it all got a little confusing.

Overall they book was good, but it didn't need all of that drama! I give Springtime At The Cider Kitchen 4 stars
