Tour & Review: The Grand Reopening of Dandelion Café by Jenny Oliver

When Annie White steps back onto Cherry Pie Island, it’s safe to say her newly inherited Dandelion Café has seen better days! And while her childhood home on the Thames-side island idyll is exactly the same retreat from the urban bustle of London she remembers, Annie’s not convinced that Owner of The Dandelion Cafe is a title she’ll be keeping for long. Not that she can bear the idea of letting her dedicated, if endearingly disorganized staff lose their jobs. Plus café life does also have the added bonus of working a stone’s throw away from millionaire Matt and his disarmingly charming smile!

One (shoestring budget) café makeover, a few delightful additions to the somewhat retro menu and a lot of cherry pie tastings later, The Dandelion Café is ready for its grand reopening! But once she’s brought the dilapidated old café back to life, Annie finds herself wishing her stay on the island was just a bit longer. She always intended to go back to the big city…but could island living finally have lured her back home for good?

This was a truly gorgeous read, and I loved every moment of my experience of Cherry Pie Island. I can't wait for the next book so I can jump back in!

I found that this book was very much a feel-good, fun, flirty book, perfect for cheering up even the dreariest of afternoons. It was relatively quick to read, and although I wanted more I was happy with how it ended.

The island is just adorable. It's a gorgeous little place that I just want to go to. Please. Now.

Annie accomplishes so much and as a reader I really felt for her. Jenny Oliver really goes all out and drags you into the very soul of her characters.

That ending? It was a little shocking and although one part of me wishes it had ended differently, I feel that that ending was perfect for the story.

Now, I'm off to find some cherry pie. And I don't even like cherries.
