Hello my lovely readers hope you are doing well as you can. I have been MIA on the blog, March was my last bookreview on here. Post that I took the first and the longest Blog break ever since I started in 2015. It has been cathartic as I read purely for the joy of reading without any commitments while coping with Covid 19 and post recovery. It has been challenging to say the least and I am still getting back on my feet. Hopefully 2022 brings some happy news and some great reads our way, here’s wishing you Happy Reading and Discovering new stories and authors.

Today’s #bookreview is for Julie Caplin’s latest title – The Cosy Cottage in Ireland. I am a big aul Irish fan and most stories set in the Emerald Isle make my reading time absolutely joyous. This, too, is a cosy delicious story, I hope you pick up a copy soon and enjoy your time on the Irish lands.

My thoughts

The Cosy cottage in Ireland, as the title suggests is set in Ireland on the coast in County Kerry. To start off on the right note I would love to mention that I absolutely love stories set in Ireland and more so if they are romance and humour. This story was so much fun with it’s strong, well written characters.

The story is set in a cooking school where Hannah from UK and a set of other characters gather for a six week cooking course taught by a world famous teacher, chef. The cooking school set up by Adrienne is a family affair with all her family, her children involved in the day to day activites at the school and the family estate where the students stay for the duration.

The story follows Hannah who unknowingly hooks up with one of her Teacher’s son’s before arriving at the school. What follows is Hannah’s stuggles to learn cooking and coming to terms with Conor being at the school. To add to it there’s some small mis events falling in Hannah’s way as she navigates the day to day at the school while avoiding to burn down the class and struggling to stay away from her attraction to Conor.

The story is a mix of fun school shenanigans only in a way adults can manage to get themselves into. There is banter to enjoy between the school’s students as they learn all about the owner’s farm to table philosophy and doing chores besides learning to cook. Hannah and Conor are fun and pretty explosive together as they go hot, cold and sparling everytime they are together.

I would suggest you to pick up this book and have a fun time exploring some beautiful Irish scenery as the characters have fun, sweet, romantic times in their lives.

Julie caplin, formerly a PR director, swanned around Europe for many years taking top food and drink writers on press trips (junkets) sampling the gastronomic delights of various cities in Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Copenhagen and Switzerland. It was a tough job but someone had to do it.

These trips have provided the inspiration and settings for her Romantic Escapes series which have been translated into fifteen different languages. The first book in the seven strong series, The Little Café in Copenhagen, was shortlisted for a Romantic Novel of the Year Award.
