The Café by the Sea

by Jenny Colgan

And all round the room, people were nodding. People who she’d always thought, somehow, wanted to get away, dreaming of freedom. That wasn’t true, she realized. This place: it was freedom. Home and freedom, all at once.

This is well-written with a great sense of place and people. Good emphasis on character development, or an uncovering of true characters. However, I didn’t believe in the romance. Two such different lifestyles and careers, not to mention the long-distance aspect. I see it is the first of a trilogy, so I see lots of stormy waters ahead. And although I liked the characters and wish them well, I just don’t think I want to spend more time with them.
