The Second Chance Cafe in Carlton Square by [Bartlett, Lilly, Gorman, Michele]

"The perfect blend of sweetness and substance" Debbie Johnson, bestselling author of Summer at the Comfort Food Cafe

One chance isn't always Enough

Everyone expects great things from Emma Billings, but when her future gets derailed by an unexpected turn of events, she realizes that getting back on track means traveling in a different direction. 

She finds it in the closed-down pub on Carlton Square. Summoning every ounce of ingenuity, and with the help of her friends and family, she opens the Second Chance Café. The charity training business is meant to keep vulnerable kids off the streets and (hopefully) away from the Metropolitan Police, and her new employees are full of ideas, enthusiasm ... and trouble. They'll need as much TLC as the customers they’re serving.

This ragtag group of chancers have to make a go of a business they know nothing about, and they do get some expert help from an Italian who's in love with the espresso machine and a professional sandwich whisperer who reads auras, but not everyone is happy to see the café open. Their milk keeps disappearing and someone is canceling the cake orders, but it's when someone commits bloomicide on all their window boxes that Emma realizes things are serious. Can the café survive when NIMBY neighbors and the rival café owner join forces to close them down? Or will Emma’s dreams fall as flat as the cakes they’re serving?

HOW DOES SHE DO IT?  How can Bartlett/Gorman keep writing these books...books that are smart, witty and wildly entertaining.  She never creases to amazes me in her brilliance with the written word, they way she fleshes out characters and the way her stories always keep me entertained from start to finish!  Her newest book is probably my favorite to date...with fresh characters and a story that was both touching and real.  I devoured this book and you will too, so grab it today and get reading!
