Artist Honey Blackwell is happy with her life. Well, almost. She lives in the picturesque village of Heatherlea, has three close friends and a soft spot for local supply teacher Dane Ackerman. If only she could put her past behind her and embrace the present.

Dane is working hard to prove himself at the village primary school and doesn’t really have time for love, but he’s drawn to Honey and hopes she feels the same. When a permanent teaching position is advertised in Heatherlea, he faces stiff competition to secure it.

As Honey and Dane deal with the ups and downs of life, will they be able to find a way to be together, or will they have to accept that sometimes love just isn’t enough?

This is the fourth short story in The Cosy Cottage Café series.

New one review witch 2017

When Honey Blackwell moved to the little village of Heatherlea she didn’t expect to make such good friends in Dawn, Camilla, and Allie (Owner of the Cosy Café), nor a love interest in local supply teacher Dane.

Her relationship with Dane though feels as if it has stalled as she is holding back from him due to past personal issues that she is trying to keep secret and Dane is trying to secure a full-time job at the local primary school which is taking all his spare time.

Will Honey’s secret come to light and can her and Dane ever have a future together?

It is great to be back in the village of Heatherlea and spend time with the villagers once again. I last read about them in the third book in the series, ‘Winter at The Cosy Cottage Café‘. It was wonderful to catch up them all again, especially heavily pregnant Dawn who finally gives birth, though not quite in the manner she had expected!

The whole series has been a joy to read and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. I’ve adored each book. The characters are just a delight, there isn’t a bad bone amongst them, which is unusual to find in books these days. With the setting being in a quaint English village it’s hard not to fall in love with the place and the beautiful scenery that surrounds it too.

I now look forward to reading book five, ‘A Wedding at The Cosy Cottage Café’.
