Returning to her family's Scottish island town in the aftermath of her mother's death, Flora opens a cafâe when she discovers that her father and brothers are not quite up to the task of running the family farm.


The beloved author of The Bookshop on the Corner returns with a sparkling, sunny, soulful new novel perfect for fans of Elin Hilderbrand.

Years ago, Flora fled the quiet Scottish island where she grew up -- and she hasn't looked back. What would she have done on Mure? It's a place where everyone has known her all her life, where no one will let her forget the past. In bright, bustling London, she can be anonymous, ambitious... and hopelessly in love with her boss.

But when fate brings Flora back to the island, she's suddenly swept once more into life with her brothers -- all strapping, loud, and seemingly incapable of basic housework -- and her father. Yet even amid the chaos of their reunion, Flora discovers a passion for cooking -- and find herself restoring dusty little pink-fronted shop on the harbour: a café by the sea.

But with the seasons changing, Flora must come to terms with past mistakes -- and work out exactly where her future lies...

Funny and heartfelt, The Café by the Sea is a delightful summertime novel that puts a modern twist on the classic Seven Brides for Seven Brothers story.

The same book with different title -The Summer Seaside Kitchen.
Jenny could do so much more with these books even make them a trilogy.
She starts with a great idea, jumps to another great idea, to another idea
but none of them are explored or developed.
She gets your imagination working over time and then leaves you hanging.
I guess that's what commercial literature is and she succeeds at it.

I am Jenny Colgan fan, and this is one of my favorites.

Another sweet and delightful and perfect read from Colgan. The going-home trope is not always as interesting as the running-away one, but readers who loved THE BOOKSHOP ON THE CORNER will also very much enjoy CAFE.
