When I heard Debbie Johnson was releasing a new book in the Comfort Food Cafe series, I was really excited as I have loved getting to know the residents of Budbury in these stories.
In this visit to Budbury set in the lead up to Christmas we have the opportunity to get to know Katie and Saul who we have met previously. On this visit we gain an insight as to what bought Katie and Saul to Budbury and see a different side to her character as she gets used to village life and the insecurities she feels in relation to Saul. Saul is one of the many wonderful characters in the village and has won the hearts of everyone. His brilliant character transported me back to when my daughter was a young bouncing bundle of energy.
A fantastic addition to the Comfort Food Cafe series, I have loved snuggling down to read the story of Katie and Saul and I hope that there will be more books set in the lovely idyllic village of Budbury at the Comfort Food Cafe.
Christmas has never been Katie Seddon’s favourite time of year. Whilst everyone else shares memories of families coming together and festive number ones, the soundtrack to Katie’s childhood wasn’t quite so merry.
But since she moved to the village of Budbury on the gorgeous Dorset coast, Katie and her baby son have found a new family. A family who have been brought together by life’s unexpected roads and the healing magic of a slice of cake and a cupful of kindess at the Comfort Food Café.
This year, Katie’s new friends are determined to give her a Christmas to remember, and with a gorgeous newcomer in town, Katie’s Christmas wish for a happy home for her son might just come true.
