The Summer Seaside Kitchen

The Summer Seaside Kitchen

***WINNER OF THE RNA ROMANTIC COMEDY NOVEL AWARD 2018***

The first novel in the Mure series, from bestselling author Jenny Colgan.

‘A heartwarming, charming and atmospheric story that made me long to escape to Mure. Total joy – Sophie Kinsella

A deliciously warm and funny slice of life from Jenny Colgan, Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of Summer at the Little Beach Street Bakery and The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After.

Flora is definitely, absolutely sure that escaping from the quiet Scottish island where she grew up to the noise and hustle of the big city was the right choice. What was there for her on Mure? It’s a place where everyone has known her all her life, and no one will let her forget the past. In the city, she can be anonymous, ambitious and indulge herself in her hopeless crush on her gorgeous boss, Joel.

When a new client demands Flora’s presence back on Mure, she’s suddenly swept back into life with her brothers (all strapping, loud and seemingly incapable of basic housework) and her father. As Flora indulges her new-found love of cooking and breathes life into the dusty little pink-fronted shop on the harbour, she’s also going to have to come to terms with past mistakes – and work out exactly where her future lies…

Let Jenny Colgan make your dreams come true!
