Welcome back to the Starfish Café – where you will find stunning views, delicious food and lifelong friendships.

A new season…

As winter turns to spring, Hollie – owner of The Starfish Café – is feeling content as she settles into her new life with her loving boyfriend, Jake, and their adorable dog Pickle.

But when an unwelcome visitor threatens the future of her café, Hollie must stay strong to protect her family’s legacy…

A leap of faith

Emerging from an unhappy relationship, Tori finds herself with nowhere to stay and nobody to talk to. The long-hidden secrets of her past weigh heavily on her until a chance encounter with Finley, struggling to come to terms with his own secrets, provides an opportunity to open up.

Can she find the strength to stop hiding from her past and face up to her family? Especially when that would mean letting her guard down and learning to trust again…

A fresh start…?

Little do Hollie and Tori know that their lives are about to collide at The Starfish Café and they may be able to help each other with a fresh start. After all, with good friends in your life, nothing is impossible…

My Thoughts

I was smitten by the first Starfish Café novel so I couldn’t wait to return.  Spring Tides was everything I had been waiting for and more.   

I love how Starfish Bay is located in Whitsborough and there are some links to characters from previous books in that series, but it also works as its own linked series too. It’s such a beautiful location  to spend a few hours and it’s the sort of community and area I would move to in a heartbeat.  I love coastal life (I live by the coast) but everything about Whitsborough and Starfish Bay is so picturesque and quaint. I wish it was real. 

The cafe in itself sells cakes that sound divine and is located in an idyllic spot to take a break and relax. I love the feel of friendship and community within the café and it’s easy to see why people are drawn to it beyond just an eatery.  People make friends and develop relationships there as well as have a safe place to go and let off steam.

Hollie and Jake’s relationships (Snowflakes Over Starfish Café) is still thriving and slowly they are both beginning to heal from, and overcome their traumatic experiences together.  I loved seeing them settled and happy. 

This time we are introduced to Tori, out of a relationship and unable to go home and Finlay.  Both are such sweet characters and I enjoyed seeing them become part of Starfish Bay as well as gaining confidence in themselves.

I have loved this series so far and cannot wait for the next instalment.  I love Jessica’s writing and how she pulls you into her community.  I highly recommend this series; you won’t be disappointed.
