Looking for a cozy read for this cold weather? Like Maeve Binchy? Then you’ll enjoy The Cafe by the Sea by Jenny Colgan. While Colgan’s stories take place in Scotland, rather than Ireland, they have the same feel as Binchy’s Irish tales. This is nothing deep or meaningful, but it’s a good, if predictable, story that keeps the pages turning, even though the ending is just what you expect. Flora left her Scottish island for London and hasn’t returned. She works in a law office and has fallen in love with her boss. When she is forced back home for a case, she realizes what she missed and learns about herself and her family in the process. I would say this is a perfect summer read, but it worked as a snuggle-up selection as well.
