At the end of last year we revealed the covers of Cressida McLaughlin's new series, The Canal Boat Café in all their colourful loveliness. Part one, All Aboard, was released in February, and Casting Off the second novella, came out last week.
As with Cressy's Primrose Terrace series, the four novellas will be released as a single novel, The Canal Boat Café, in paperback and ebook later this year, and we're delighted to be able to show you the full, wraparound paperback cover!
Here is the blurb for The Canal Boat Café, which will be released on the 28th of July.
Summer Freeman returns to the waterside village of Willowbeck to rescue the Canal Boat Café, her late mother’s picturesque narrowboat, which has run into choppy waters. A family friend, Valerie, has been trying to keep things afloat, but the coffee machine is jammed, the cake offerings are paltry, and not all of the locals want to see the café succeed.
Help comes from the boat next door, in the shape of handsome wildlife photographer, Mason and his naughty Border Terrier, who are showing more than a passing interest in Summer and her adorable Bichon Frise, Latte. But is Mason being honest about himself? Or does he have something to hide?
As her life and the community of Willowbeck begin to entwine, Summer finds herself setting sail on a new adventure. Will the anchor of a steady life on land be too strong, or can Summer learn to cut loose and embrace life afloat?
What do you think of the cover? Do you love it as much as we do?
