Book Review - The Strawberry Hearts Diner by Carolyn Brown

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Jancy wasn't planning on staying in Pick. She was just passing through the town where she spent some happy years. However, her car is broken and can't be fixed. When Jancy sees that the Strawberry Hearts Diner is looking for help she decides to check it out and offers her services. She has fond memories of the diner and the ladies who run it, Vicky and Nettie. They immediately treat her like family, but Jancy isn't there to stay, or is she?

Jancy is used to moving around a lot. She doesn't have any roots and has no idea if she's capable of growing them. While she makes friends in Pick and is happier than she's ever been she's also having doubts, is she like her father, who always wanted to leave as soon as he arrived somewhere? When someone is threatening to ruin everything that makes Pick special Jancy has to decide if she wants to stay and fight for the people she's grown to love or if she should go like she's always planned to.

The Strawberry Hearts Diner is a fantastic romantic story. Jancy is insecure and doesn't know how wonderful she is. She's sweet, smart and generous. I immediately loved her and couldn't wait to find out if she'd find some much deserved happiness in Pick. She's had a hard life and being with Vicky and Nettie is exactly what she needs to heal. I loved that The Strawberry Hearts Diner is a combination of heartwarming friendship, love and family and that this is being offered to every decent person who enters the premises.

Carolyn Brown's writing has a lovely easy flow that immediately made me like her story. The Strawberry Hearts Diner is a magical setting. It's warm and welcoming, a place that feels like home. Carolyn Brown's descriptions of food are mouthwatering and she makes this precious diner that means so much to many people come to life in an incredible way. The Strawberry Hearts Diner is such a gorgeous book, it's charming, entertaining, adorable and captivating. It's a mesmerizing feelgood story that put a big smile on my face.
