There is nothing better than being laden down with Christmas shopping and seeking solace in a lovely festive cafe for a festive treat. Where better than to sample a latte and a mince pie than the Cosy Kettle in Honeyford.
This time at the Cosy Kettle we are concentrating on Becca who is the manager. An unlikely choice as she is running away from what she sees as a failure, a broken relationship, a failed job and not living up to the status of her twin sister who her parents seem more to praise.
Hiding in a coffee shop in a bookshop seems like the perfect place to be.
Becca’s wish is to reinvent herself and in the run up to Christmas she does.
Can she get the date with Logan, who she has had a secret crush on for months?
Can she learn to be more assertive and stand up in front of people to talk?
Can she be more like her sister Jasmine?
But ultimately this wish list is going to be the undoing of Becca.
The opportunity to impress Logan and her boss Flora with some savvy business acumen and change the Cosy kettle into something more highbrow and sophisticated for a corporate party leads to a few conflicts with regular customers.
Add into the mix her friendship with housemate Luke who always remains faithful to their friendship. A sister who appears to have everything, including it looks like the man Becca is in love with.
Will her wishes come true or will Becca remain true to herself and just simply settle into being the way she is?
This is a nice simple read to bring a trilogy of books about the Cosy Kettle to a conclusion, but for me this book was not my favourite of the three.
Thank you to the publisher via netgalley for the opportunity to read this book.
