CLOSED: Win a signed copy of The Second Chance Cafe in Carlton Square

This giveaway has now closed and I’ll be announcing the winner of this signed copy of ‘The Second Chance Cafe in Carlton Square‘ very soon!

I love relaxing with a good rom-com, and Lilly Bartlett is one of my favourite rom-com authors. Actually, she’s two of my favourite authors, because Lilly Bartlett is the pen name of Michele Gorman.

I’ve reviewed three of Lilly’s books here on SallyAkins.com – The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square, The Second Chance Cafe in Carlton Square, and The Big Dreams Beach Hotel. Just a heads up, Lilly also has new novella coming out in time for Christmas which I’ll be reviewing here next month!

But today’s giveaway marks a double celebration. Of course, it’s part of my 5th Blog Anniversary month, but, it’s also the day that the paperback version of The Second Chance Cafe in Carlton Square is released. And I’ve got a personally inscribed, signed copy to give away to one lucky SallyAkins.com reader.


The book is a feel-good story of second chances, friendship and parenthood. You can read my full review here, and here’s the blurb:

A feel-good story that’s as scrumptious as your favourite slice of cake!
Emma’s new café will be perfect, with its gorgeous strings of vintage bunting, mouth-wateringly gooey cakes, comforting pots of tea and quirky customers who think of each other as friends.

It’s a long road to get there, but as her business fills with freelancing hipsters, stroppy teens, new mums and old neighbourhood residents, Emma realises that they’re not the only ones getting a second chance. She is too.

But when someone commits bloomicide on their window boxes, their milk starts disappearing and their cake orders are mysteriously cancelled, it becomes clear that someone is determined to close them down.

Will the café be their second chance after all?

A deliciously laugh-out-loud story about friendship, second chances and surviving parenthood, perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Milly Johnson and Holly Martin.

  3. I couldn’t possibly choose a favourite book as an adult, I just love to read full stop. As a child I loved the Tale of Georgie Grub.

  4. Twopence to Cross the Mersey by Helen Forrester. I’ve read all four of her autobiographies several times but the first is by far the best
