Blog Tour: Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe by Debbie Johnson

Title: Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe

Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe has quickly become my ultimate summer read. Whether you are going away or not for your holidays this summer, let Debbie's latest book accompany you as this is the perfect read for those summer months.

The opening of this story has Laura writing an application letter for a position at The Comfort Food Cafe. In that opening we learn about Laura's back story, which makes for some emotional reading, but it's still lighthearted and you can see that Laura really deserves this break. I immediately warmed to her and I just knew that I was going to really enjoy this.

There was so much that I loved about this book, from the storyline, to the characters to the setting, Debbie could not have written a more feel good book. I think she has put herself in my favourite authors category. She has this way of drawing you into her stories and making you feel that you also are part of the story. The characters are so endearing and the way they all look out for each other and those that stop by is so heartwarming. There's a great mix of humour that had me smiling and laughing throughout the book, but there is still that emotional side that makes the characters realistic and life-like.

I felt wrapped up and taken away to this glorious part of Dorset and I never wanted to leave. It reminded me of the childhood summer holidays I used to have and I now want a summer holiday there. I think Dorset tourism should pay Debbie commission, as I think a lot of people will be wanting to head there now! If only the Comfort Food Cafe was real, as that is one place I would definitely be visiting.

I am overjoyed that there is a Christmas at the Comfort Food Cafe hitting shelves in September as I can very happily go back to the Comfort Cafe and it's wonderful array of characters.

Just like the title suggests, this was such a comforting, feel good read. Add it to your summer reading pile as you won't regret it.
