Book Review - Autumn at The Cosy Cottage Café by Rachel Griffiths

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Dawn is still very much in love with her husband Rick. However, life isn't always easy. They have two children and Dawn mostly has to run the household on her own, because Rick's job is demanding. Dawn would love to teach again, but sometimes things aren't going according to plan at all. Will the new direction their life is taking be a welcome one? Rick is busier at work than ever and Dawn has the feeling something isn't exactly right. Is their love strong enough to survive the big hurdle they will have to overcome?

Autumn at The Cosy Cottage Café is a beautiful story. Dawn and Rick have a strong bond, but even though they have a solid foundation they are struggling. Children are amazing, but they also can be a handful and when hormones are getting in the way even small problems sometimes become huge. I loved the way Rachel Griffiths describes this. She's honest and realistic and writes with a great sense of humor at the same time, which makes the story come to life incredibly well. I loved reading about Dawn and Rick and couldn't wait to find out if they'd be able to solve their problems.

The Cosy Cottage Café is a fantastic setting for a story. I love the friendships that are being formed there and for me the place is absolutely magical. I really like the central role it has in the lives of several different women and equally enjoy reading about all of them. Rachel Griffiths has created a warm and welcoming atmosphere that makes her story wonderful to read. Autumn at The Cosy Cottage Café is entertaining, heartwarming and sweet.


The Cosy Cottage Café stories are part of a series, but can be read as standalones as well. If you want to know everything there is to know about all of the characters I'd advise you to start with Summer at the Cosy Cottage Café.
