“A story about friendship and loss…is there hope for those of a certain age?”
‘The time to be happy is now…’ Jo remembers her late husband’s words but is struggling to face the lonely future that lies ahead. A heartbroken widow, Jo finds herself alone with ghostly memories at Kirkton House – a Cumbrian Manor that until recently, she ran as a thriving hotel. Her two sons have moved away, Jimmy to run a bar in Barbados, and Zach to London to pursue a career as a celebrity chef. Middle-age and widowhood loom frighteningly and Jo determines to sell up and start again, despite protestations from colourful friend, Hattie and erstwhile admirer Pete Parks.
Hattie convinces Jo to postpone any life-changing decisions by enjoying a Caribbean holiday but their holiday sets off a course of events that brings mayhem and madness to Jo and her family. Confused and anxious for her future, can life really begin again for Jo?
Caroline’s books are stand-alone stories but characters do make appearances throughout. The best order to read them is:
Coffee Tea The Gypsy & Me
So, You Think You’re A Celebrity…Chef?
Coffee Tea The Caribbean & Me
Light-hearted, whimsical, and highly entertaining!
This book is witty, interesting, and engaging. And it reminds us to always live life to the fullest, and to embark on new adventures, experience new love, and indulge at any age.
The prose is beautiful and descriptive. The characters are sweet, amusing, and endearing. The setting takes us from the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, to the idyllic peacefulness of the English countryside. And the plot is captivating with its multiple escapades, misgivings, cheeky banter, and brief glimpse into cookery.
This truly is a lovely, easy, heartwarming story that will definitely make you smile.
