Publisher Description

The beloved author of The Bookshop on the Corner returns with a sparkling, sunny, soulful new novel perfect for fans of Elin Hilderbrand.

Years ago, Flora fled the quiet Scottish island where she grew up -- and she hasn't looked back. What would have done on Mure? It's a place where everyone has known her all her life, where no one will let her forget the past. In bright, bustling London, she can be anonymous, ambitious... and hopeleslly in love with her boss.

But when fate brings Flora back to the island, she's suddenly swept once more into life with her brothers -- all strapping, loud, and seemingly incapable of basic housework -- and her father. Yet even amid the chaos of their reunion, Flora discovers a passion for cooking -- and find herself restoring dusty little pink-fronted shop on the harbour: a café by the sea.

But with the seasons changing, Flora must come to terms with past mistakes -- and work out exactly where her future lies...

Funny and heartfelt, The Café by the Sea is a delightful summertime novel that puts a modern twist on the classic Seven Brides for Seven Brothers story.

  • “Narrator Sarah Barron transports the listener to the isolated Scottish isle of Muir…She employs a Scottish brogue that enhances the setting, which is so unique and vital to the story. She gives each character an individual voice and personality with brogues for the natives and appropriate accents for the non-natives…Barron’s voice for Colton, the American client she’s there assist, is especially well drawn, with his clueless enthusiasm seeping out of every line.”

  • “This book has everything readers have come to expect from a Colgan novel: humor, heartfelt relationship issues, and yummy food descriptions. The romantic storylines are well-developed and it isn’t clear until the end who Flora is going to end up with. Flora’s family situation is equally meaningful, with realistic issues that are handled in a lighthearted but touching way. Colgan knows the way into a reader’s heart—through the stomach!”
