Blog Tour: The Christmas Cafe at Seashell Cove by Karen Clarke @bookouture

It’s no secret that I’m a big Karen Clarke fan, so I’m thrilled to be on the blog tour for The Christmas Cafe at Seashell Cove today! Thank you to Bookouture for the invitation.


Ah the final installment in the Seashell cove series and after learning about Cassie and Meg’s stories, we finally get to see how it all plays out for Tilly!

Seth and his charming son move to Seashell cove to start fresh when he quickly stumbles upon Tilly during a chance encounter. We get to learn more about Seth’s history and see how their relationship develops through the time leading up to Christmas.

If you don’t know, I am a huge Christmas book fan – especially of the British chick lit variety – and this one did not disappoint. I love Karen Clarke’s writing style and how she can make you root for these characters.

I loved how we still get more development from Meg and Cassie and got to see where their stories headed as well. And I absolutely abhorred Tilly’s boyfriend, Rufus, (a good thing! Give me all the unlikeables!). A nod to the author for creating such a detestable character. He was that and more!

This was a great, festive read that will have you singing Jingle Bells and rooting for a happy ending for our main character!

A big thank you to Bookouture for my advance copy. This book is now available!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the café at Seashell Cove, where there’s hot chocolate to keep you warm – and the man of your dreams could be waiting…

Interior designer Tilly Campbell loves being carefree and single. But her latest job is redecorating the cosy local café for a Christmas party, and when her friends confess their plans for the big night – including a proposal, a declaration of love and a pregnancy announcement – Tilly starts to wonder if she might be missing out…

Transforming the café into a winter wonderland is more of a challenge than she thought, so when she bumps into gorgeous newcomer Seth, Tilly welcomes the distraction. Seth is a single father, struggling to settle his son Jack into their new cottage, and Tilly is determined to help them make their house into a home in time for Christmas.

But with the café still in chaos just days before the party it looks like it’s going to be a Christmas to remember for all the wrong reasons… With friends old and new relying on her, can Tilly save the Christmas party?

And could she finally find love waiting for her under the mistletoe?

A heart-warming, hilarious read about friendship, family and the meaning of Christmas. Perfect for fans of Sue Moorcroft, Holly Martin and Debbie Johnson!
