The Cherry Tree Café by Norfolk-resident British author Heidi Swain, is her apparently standalone heartwarming contemporary fiction novel with f/m romantic elements, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Simon & Schuster UK.
The cozy crafts-centric story (apparently the publisher recommends it for fans of the TV shows Great British Bake-Off and Great British Sewing Bee) stars a woman returning to her home village after a bad break-up, and rediscovering joy in life by teaming up with her old best friend to open a new café, and perhaps rekindling an old flame as well.
Offered in the UK only, available at multiple retailers.
Free for a limited time @ Amazon Kobo, Google Play, iTunes (this appeared to only be free in the UK only, but not anywhere else that I spot-checked, though YMMV for your own locale at assorted stores)
Cupcakes, crafting and love at The Cherry Tree Cafe… Perfect feel-good summer reading for fans of Great British Bake-Off
Lizzie Dixon’s life feels as though it’s fallen apart. Instead of the marriage proposal she was hoping for from her boyfriend, she is unceremoniously dumped, and her job is about to go the same way. So, there’s only one option: to go back home to the village she grew up in and to try to start again.
Her best friend Jemma is delighted Lizzie has come back home as she has just bought a little cafe and Lizzie’s sewing skills are just what she needs to help get it ready for the grand opening.
With a new venture and a new home, things are looking much brighter for Lizzie. But can she get over her broken heart, and will an old flame reignite a love from long ago…?
For everyone who loves settling down to watch Great British Bake-Off, the Great British Sewing Bee, or curling up to read Milly Johnson or Jenny Colgan,The Cherry Tree Cafe is a coffee-break treat.
