About the Book
Miyuki Woodward, lover of pints and Pot Noodles, has been spending holidays in the same Welsh seaside town for years. She loves the wet walks, she loves The Anchor and most of all she loves the pub-quiz.
This year, following an act of raw creativity involving some cans of gold spray paint, Miyuki will take part in the most turbulent events the village has seen since Tall Mr Hughes returned from the pub toilet without remembering to button up.
Isn’t it great when an impulse buy works out? I picked up this one on a bit of a bookish day out a few weeks ago, when I went to have a nosey about a couple of local books stores I’d not been to before and spotted it on one of the tables.
I’d never heard of the author before, nor did I really have any idea what it was about.
Thankfully it turned out to be a wonderful read, and one of those perfect Sunday afternoon kind-a-reads.
It’s not as laugh-out-loud funny, as the book blurb would suggest, but that’s not really the point, this is a lovely cosy read (the title perfectly captures the warmth and feeling in this book) that for nearly all of the book, just fills you with a lovely warm feeling.
Miyuki, and her friends in the village are a wonderful quirky group of people, and the two weeks we spend with them, are two weeks a lot of people would love to spend.
There’s a certain amount of repetition to Miyuki’s days, but that just adds to the cosy feeling, and this builds until Rhodes utterly breaks your heart, I’m not going to say how or why or when, you’re going to need to read this one yourself to find out!
