Welcome to Brew, a cafe where kindness is almost as important as coffee… almost!
Abbie has fled London and the humiliation of not being able to make rent after being made redundant. Her sister, Louise, unlucky in love, has thrown herself into her career at the local hospital. And Eszter, who has travelled from Hungary with her daughter Zoe, is hoping to fulfil her husband’s dying wish: to reunite his family.
This summer, three very different women are inspired by the random acts of kindness written up on the Kindness Board at Brew, and decide to make a pact to be kinder to others and to themselves.
Can a little bit of kindness really change your life? Eszter, Abbie and Louise are about to find out!

Firstly the concept of this novel was absolutely brilliant and something I wish could happen in real life. It focuses on three different woman who are all struggling and a cafe that encourages people to perform random acts of kindness. This leads to some truly wonderful and heartwarming scenes that were so lovely to read about.
The characters were fabulous and I enjoyed learning more about them as their stories are slowly revealed. The close friendship that develops between them was so lovely to read about and the scenes showing the interaction between them were some of my favourites in the book. They all seemed so real and I found a wishing I could be friends with them.
The village of Little wood sounds like a great place to live and I loved all the descriptions of the idyllic village. The sense of togetherness that the village has was very heartwarming to read about and I loved the community spirit they had. The theme of love and friendship is evident throughout the book without ever being sickly sweet which makes for a fabulous read. I felt quite sad to finish the book and leave the characters and village behind. I really hope that this won’t be our last visit!
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Harriet Collins from Simon and Schuster for my copy of this book.
