Book Review “Lemon Drop Cottage” by K.T. Dady


Womens’ Fiction, Romance and Escapism


Lemon Drop Cottage

Welcome to Pepper Bay. A small close-knit community where you’ll find chocolate box cottages, quaint shops, love, drama, and a happily ever after.

Snuggle down with this cosy, feel-good, comfort read that whisks you away to a beautiful bay on the Isle of Wight – Perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Phillipa Ashley, and Holly Martin.

The Pepper Bay books are standalone stories that intertwine with recurring characters. Best read in order for maximum enjoyment.

Lemon Drop Cottage: At first glance, Scott Harper is a shy artist who keeps himself to himself, but he isn’t the man everyone thinks he is. Scott has a secret. One that has kept him firmly away from any chance of having an intimate relationship. The only woman in his life is the one he talks to online but has never met. It’s easier that way, for them both.

Dolly Lynch has just taken over her aunt’s shop in Pepper Bay. Between looking after her teenage son, running around for her old aunt, moving home, and opening a new shop, she barely has time to herself, so she really appreciates the moments she spends talking online with a man she’s never met. Little does she know he’s the same man who lives just up the road in the cutest cottage she has ever seen.

This is my third visit to Pepper Bay and boy what a great return it was too. I utterly enjoyed every single page. Every book in this series works superbly well as a stand alone as each main character becomes the main focus in their own right but are still in the other books with more of a background story. It’s a great concept that gives you a lovely insight into everyone’s life, relationships, work and family.

Lemon Drop Cottage is a really comforting read, pure escapism at it’s very best. I smiled throughout and it certainly gave me a few hours of just feeling warm and fuzzy. A fabulous book and I can not wait for the next installment. The people of Pepper Bay are fast becoming some of my favourite characters. I’m sure I said after my other reviews, Pepper Pot farm and Honey Bee Cottage, that I just wanted to move there and guess what? I still do.

Dolly is my kind of woman. I loved her immensely. She’s accident prone, doubts herself often but feels a strong attraction to Simon and feels guilty because of her online “relationship/friendship” with a man she loves chatting to and perhaps it will lead to a relationship. What about Simon? Will she ever come to the realisation that they are one and the same, (not a spoiler, it’s in the blurb) I loved this blossoming romance and just wanted Simon and Dolly to get into a good old smooch and be with each other.

I would tell anyone to give this fab piece of escapism a go, it’s brilliant. You will laugh, cry, feel part of this incredible community. I’m off to pack my bags and move to Pepper Bay.
