Springtime at the Cider Kitchen

Book 2, Little Somerby

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Moving, funny, thoughtful and romantic. Bring on the next one!' JENNY KANE.

Caroline Hemingway can't help but feel a little strange watching her ex sister-in-law marrying the owner of Carter's Cider Farm, but she's delighted Anna's found happiness after the death of her late husband, and Caroline's brother, James. If only Caroline could find her own love story...

Desperate to escape the rat race, Caroline decides to take the plunge and move to the idyllic village of Little Somerby, where she is given the task of opening and running a restaurant in one of the forgotten barns on the Cider Farm.

Opening and running The Cider Kitchen is no easy task, and there are many challenges on the way, but slowly Caroline feels she's being accepted into the local community, and starts to believe she may have found her forever home. But secrets from her past seem destined to haunt her, and not even the attentions of the very dishy Jonathan Carter can distract her from all she's left behind...

Customer Reviews

Characters didn't make much of an impression

Caroline Hemingway has a one-night stand with her sister-in-law Anna's new brother-in-law Johnathan Carter at Anna's wedding to Matthew. Unfortunately the next day he offers her a job managing the new restaurant which the family is building to showcase their cider and local produce. I have to say I was a little confused by that because Caroline's experience was in organising events, not running a restaurant.

Caroline's reasons for leaving her old job are very mysterious and involve a man - the reader is left to speculate what happened. As the restaurant opens Johnathan and Caroline dance around each other - but he has commitment issues and she thinks it would be tacky to be having an affair with the boss.

I liked this book but I didn't love it. It is clearly a sequel to Anna and Matthew's story, which I have not read, whilst it could be read as a stand-alone easily, there was a lot of typing up loose ends for Anna and Matthew in this book. I think the characters didn't really jump out of the page at me and I couldn't really see why Caroline and Johnathan thought they were in love with each other, they didn't seem to even know each other very well. Maybe if I had read the first book I would have got more of an insight into their characters.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
