Book Review- Spring Tides At The Starfish Cafe By Jessica Redland


Welcome back to the Starfish Café – where you will find stunning views, delicious food and lifelong friendships.

A new season…

As winter turns to spring, Hollie – owner of The Starfish Café – is feeling content as she settles into her new life with her loving boyfriend, Jake, and their adorable dog Pickle.

But when an unwelcome visitor threatens the future of her café, Hollie must stay strong to protect her family’s legacy…

A leap of faith…

Emerging from an unhappy relationship, Tori finds herself with nowhere to stay and nobody to talk to. The long-hidden secrets of her past weigh heavily on her until a chance encounter with Finley, struggling to come to terms with his own secrets, provides an opportunity to open up.

Can she find the strength to stop hiding from her past and face up to her family? Especially when that would mean letting her guard down and learning to trust again…

A fresh start…?

Little do Hollie and Tori know that their lives are about to collide at The Starfish Café and they may be able to help each other with a fresh start. After all, with good friends in your life, nothing is impossible…

My Review

The story of Hollie and Jake continue in this 2nd book where Hollie encountered threat from a slimy villain who wanted to buy her cafe and simply refuse to accept No from Hollie. Tori have her own story and her friendship with Finley is helping each other through their troubles.

This is 2nd trilogy where the characters from its 1st book develop further and new character in being introduced. It is a warm story of friendship and love in a community and whilst the first book is about trauma, this 2nd story are much gentler and upbeat to read. Love all the characters: Hollie, Jake, Tori and Finley. They are loving, kind, hardworking and at time stubborn too. Overall, it is a good read for me.
