My Review: This is a very lovely and even paced story. We meet Emily who loves wearing Pinafore dresses. She and her mother dreamt of opening their own cafe. Years later, that dream just might be coming true in Essendale, after her fiance fires her. Her best friend Kate has her joining a running club as a way for her to meet men. This is where she meets games fan and local doctor Ludek. I really love Mr B and his encouraging ways. We have games, food, Polish foods, chapters with book lists and the desire for love and togetherness. I absolutely recommend this book as a light and fun read. Loved it. Thank you.

The Little Board Game Café

An irresistible story of love, friendship and the power of Games Night, perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Christie Barlow.

When Emily loses her job, house and boyfriend all within a matter of days, she’s determined to turn a negative into a positive and follow her dream of running a small cafe in the gorgeous Yorkshire village of Essendale.

But she quickly finds she’s bitten off more than she can chew when the ‘popular’ cafe she takes over turns out to secretly be a failing business. Emily desperately needs a way to turn things around, and help comes from the unlikeliest of places when she meets local board game-obsessed GP Ludek. But when a major chain coffee shop opens on the high street, Emily is forced to question if she’ll ever be able to compete.

Has she risked everything on something destined to fail? Or can a playful twist, a homely welcome, and a sprinkle of love make Emily’s cafe the destination she’s always dreamed of?
