Howdy booklovers and welcome to my stop on the tour hosted by Rachels Random Resources!
Willow has opened a custard tart cafe at the end of a popular English seaside pier. Her unique and magical spin on the Portuguese pastel de nata has customers queuing outside the door to taste them.
Tiago’s grandparents are purveyors of The Real Deal: authentic custard tarts made in the Algarve region of Portugal, where his family have been lovingly baking them for centuries. When he moves to England for a new job and chances upon Willow’s wondrous wares, he is out for war. At least that’s his intention. But when serendipity brings Willow and Tiago back together at the departures desk in Bristol airport – destination Faro – outrage isn’t the only spark that flies…
Weston-super-Mare and Portugal are about to collide!
You had me at Custard tart. I really enjoyed Willows character and her unyielding affection for food because as someone with a major sweet tooth i can definitely relate. She’s passionate and witty and I just love her. Tiago on the other hand…. I struggle with.
Overall, this one was a nice read, warmed the cockles and provided some much needed escapism!
