Today I am delighted to be the next stop on the blog tour for The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club by Lynsey James and hosted by Jenny In Neverland!

About this book…

The perfect summer romance for a sunny afternoon and a picnic in the park

Emily Reed is having a bad day. Her mother has just dropped a devastating bombshell—the dad she’s known and loved for twenty-five years isn’t her biological father!

Desperately in need of answers, Emily heads to Luna Bay covering her personal quest up as a work trip to Sunflower Cottage B&B.

Setting up the ‘Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club’ should be a great way to meet the locals and maybe even find out who her father is. The only problem is brooding and insanely gorgeous, Noah, who is determined to make Emily’s stay perfectly uncomfortable.

Discovering the truth after all these years was never going to be simple, but Emily will stop at nothing to uncover her past… even if her heart is getting in the way!

Don’t miss a single book in the Luna Bay series:
Book 1 – The Broken Hearts Book Club
Book 2 – The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club
Book 3 – Coming soon

My review…

If you haven’t read The Broken Hearts Book Club which is the first in the Luna Bay books then don’t worry as this can totally be read as a standalone. It is nice to see however the characters from that book making cameo appearances here so it might tempt you to find out a little more about them!

Lynsey James has written a lovely romantic comedy around my most favourite meal….breakfast! When Emily descends upon the gorgeous seaside town of Luna Bay, she isn’t looking for love, well not in that way! But she is looking for the love of a father that she has never known and for a promotion in the job she loves. So when she meets Noah at The Sunflower Cottage and they end up cooking breakfasts together, it’s all a bit unexpected! The scenes where they come together in the kitchen the first time are hilarious (for their cooking skills not their romantic liaisons!) But by the time they were planning their new Breakfast Club adventure, it was all I could do not to make myself a huge pile of pancakes and join in!

There is a great cast of interesting and wacky characters here but my favourite has to be Pamela, Emily’s mother. She really was the mother you love to pieces but would drive you mad at the same time! Unfortunately, I saw a lot of myself in her so it’s a good job I have a sense of humour too! I loved catching up with Lucy from the book club and I have a funny feeling about a certain breakfast regular, that her story may well be on its way soon!

This is an easy to get into, sweet but sometimes bittersweet, book that is an ideal holiday read.

The Sunflower Cottage Breakfast Club (Luna Bay, Book 2) is available to buy now from Amazon UK here.

About the author…


Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She’s an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she’s sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)

A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left her job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.

When Lynsey’s not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she’s daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they’re meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…
