Gisela’s review of The Cafe by the Sea (Summer Seaside Kitchen, #1)

I was on the fence about giving it a 4 but I don’t really believe it deserves a 3, so just pretend that it is a 3.5. The first few chapters are a bit boring, and I couldn’t get through some of the details, BUT it definitely picks up and the rest of the book was a breeze to get through!

The Cafe by the Sea was the type of book I needed after reading many “serious” books (and currently listening to another serious read that is breaking my heart). We go on a journey with Flora, who is freaking hilarious, from her adopted home of London to her home on an island long off the coast of Scotland called Mure. What follows is a story about finding out where you belong, the ties that will forever bind us, and discovering long hidden passions. Seriously though, I wanted to eat everything Flora baked or cooked in the book!! Side Note: The author includes a few recipes in the back, which I’m super eager to try out!

I’m also a sucker for anything folklore or mythical related. This book had it’s fair share of selkie and sprite stories!

“You can live in many different places. I would like to think you will step into many different worlds, many different places, and feel happy in all of them.”
