I totally adored this book. The writing was sublime and it slipped through my brain like cherry jam on whipped cream!
The beauty of Heidi Swain’s writing is that she laid out such a satisfying, compelling world, that by the time I had finished reading, I was entirely convinced I should set up my own craft cafe. And let me tell you I can’t even crochet!
Heidi managed to fabricate such a desirable little cafe, with bunting and cake, and sewing and scones and also a totally gorgeous couple that I fell totally in love.
The Cherry Tree Cafe was a contender for the RNA Joan Hessayon New Writers Scheme Award for debut authors, and although didn’t win, in my opinion, was just as good as the winning book, The Gunner Girl by Clare Harvey. See post here.
I would give this book a huge ten out of ten, and I am totally looking forward to her next book coming soon.
