Can love flourish amongst the tree tops?

When pastry chef Twilight Wilson was a young girl, she would hide from school bullies up in the treehouse at the bottom of her garden in her family home in Sussex. It was her special place, and even as an adult she still loves it.

So when her family tell her they can’t afford to live there any more, Twilight is devastated. Not only will they lose their home – but the treehouse too!

She comes up with a plan to save the family home – she’ll start up a cafe in the treehouse! It’s a brilliant idea, and excitement builds as she starts planning the menus, with the help of Theo – a rather attractive man from the gym. But when former school bully Lucy finds out the plan, she starts plotting – and opens her own rival cafe in the village!

Can Twilight save her family home? Will her friendship with Theo ever be anything more? And who will win the cafe wars?

Wonderfully heartwarming story full of cake, treehouses, a hint of romance and a bitter rivalry that was a joy to read. 

Twilight (what a fabulous name) has moved back to her family home to set up the Twilight Cafe in a hope of earning enough money to keep the house from having to be sold. Her parents are in London, while her dad has an experimental medical treatment, so Twilight is determined to help out. 

What she hadn't counted on was her old childhood bully apparently still hating her as an adult, and the series of instances made me absolutely hate Lucy with a passion.  She is a nightmare of a woman,  very petty and seems determined to go all out to ruin Twilight. 

There is cafe rivalry in a small town,  until Twilight hits on the potential unique selling point of her own cafe, from which well I loved hearing all about it. 

There are assorted tough subjects dealt with and some of the main themes are bullying and how it doesn't stop in childhood, and also Paloma's (Twilight's best friend) search for family. 

There are so many cakes and scones baked in this book that I was starting to get really peckish reading this, and i loved all the various characters.  Some fabulous storylines about friendship and just generally a warm and loving feeling from the book.  

I always enjoy this author and this was no exception, another highly enjoyable story that I was hooked on. 

Thank you to Avon and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly an voluntarily.
