The Bistro by Watersmeet Bridge is my third full-length novel, and is set in a bistro by the seaside in Devon.


Here are some early reviews:

‘You could not help but fall in love with this story. You will feel you are actually there.’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars.

‘The author drew me into the story from the first word and once she had my attention, she didn’t let it go until I had finished the last word on the last page. The author has created some really loveable and believable characters that you will be drawn to and you will only want the best for them.’ Ginger Book Geek, 5 stars.

‘Pure escapism! That’s how I would describe this. It’s a perfect combination of boy meets girl and they fall in love, a little bit of drama, talk of delicious food and some complicated family relationships.’ Likeherdingcatsblog, 4 stars.

‘I loved loved loved this book, it had all the elements i enjoy. A budding romance, beautiful food in a restaurant setting with great description that had me craving it, a fantastic community feel and characters that you really wanted to support, and some you wanted to push into the water. A real sense of escapism that took me away from day to day life for a little while.’ Afternoon Bookery blog, 5 stars.

‘With a good range of characters, an interesting plot, talented writing, along with several twists along the way it all adds up to a very entertaining story, and one I enjoyed immensely.’ Grace J Reviewerlady, 5 stars.
