Reviews for:

So, You Think You're A Celebrity...Chef?

"A fabulous Story, it made me shriek with laughter and I loved every twist and turn!" Valentina Harris, Author, Chef and International Cookery School Host.

"I was made aware of this book via Twitter and was drawn to it as I work in a shopping telly environment where we have 'celebrity chefs' as guests and I thought it would be a hoot. I was not wrong. Caroline James has spun a tale (I would say 'come up with the ingredients') that is enjoyable, funny, charming, believable and page-turning..." Nigel May, TV Personality & Author

"You'll go NUTS about this book!" Andrew Nutter, Celebrity Chef.

Coffee, Tea, The Gypsy & Me

Ebook of the week - The Sun:

"A strong plot with likeable characters make it a great read."

Chicklitgirls.com :

"Caroline James has a real gift for writing and done an outstanding job with her debut novel. Keeping it real she has brought in facets of life that we all have to deal with, everything needed for a satisfying read for women - amusing, colourful and even tear-jerking at times."

I downloaded this to my kindle as I thought it looked a 'good read'. I was proved right.

I loved the relationship between the main character, Jo and Hattie - who gave plenty of laugh out loud moments. Jo's relationships with other characters in the book were little stories of their own. I found myself cheering for Jo, crying with her and getting angry with her. All signs of a good, well written book.

A lovely, warm story, perfect for your holiday read.

I look forward to this book as a paperback, so I can get it for my mum who has not yet been tempted by a kindle.

I look forward to more from this author.

I have never left a review before but just had to for this book. I downloaded this when it was free and started straight away. It was a absolute fantastic read, I just couldn't put it down, you get drawn into the live's of Jo and Hattie and the day to day goings on in the Hotel.
I would definitely recommend this book, read it and you will not be disappointed.

This is a cracking good read written by an exciting new storyteller, you won't want to put it down!

Yes it is "chicklit" set in the eighty's in ? the Lake District. But I wasn't familiar with this genre so was facinated to find out what the fuss is all about.

If you want to be taken to another time and place by believable characters who are facing life's challenges with determination and good humor, you won't be disappointed!

Romantic fiction is not normally my cup of tea, but this was recommended to me by an author friend. I'm so glad I gave it a go. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading the whole book before I knew it! I laughed and cried and laughed some more. The main characters were very believable and I found myself wanting to stay at this lovely little hotel in Cumbria, to get to know them better.

I had never heard of Caroline James before, but I'm sure I will be reading more from her in the future.

This debut book by Caroline James was fantastic, I didnt want to put it down. It is well written with laugh out loud humour aswell as sad and poignoint moments.

The main Character Jo is a likeable character who most women can easily relate to. She is trying her best to make a goof life for herself and her young baby after her husband runs off with the nanny.
The characters in the book are well thought out and are all very likeable. They jell together in the story and there are lots of funny moments and intertwined lives, it helps that the story is set in a small village. We all know how they can be.
You really root for Jo to succeed, you can see she is very determined and independent. I liked the references to the 80's, I must be getting old.
The book enlightens you to Gypsy life, culture and what happens at horse fayres.
I highly recommend this book, it has a bit of everything you need in a nice chilled out read. Enjoy everyone:)

Format: Paperback
This was such a fun read! I sat down yesterday morning to read it and I'd finished it by late afternoon, I just could not put it down! Wow.

Caroline James has created a beautiful story, and one of my favourite parts was the setting. Caroline's descriptions of the countryside and life in the 1980′s were so well written and described that I felt as though I was transported back in time and dropped right in the middle of the scenes. In my mind I could see the setting, hear everything around me and I literally lost myself in the book for many wonderful hours.The Fair was fascinating to read about, I personally am very interested in Gypsy culture and traditions, so I especially enjoyed that this featured in the book.

Jo was a very-well written character, I warmed to her straight away, and I loved her personality, I feel that as a character she was perfectly written. All throughout I really got behind her and I wanted her to succeed with the guest house and with everything in her life. Hattie is just fantastic - I enjoyed the relationship between Jo and Hattie, I loved reading about their friendship and seeing it progress in the story.

There is always something happening in every chapter which makes the story a compelling, interesting read which you won't want to put down! There is romance, laughter, friendships, family and country life in store with this book, and I am so thrilled that I was able to read this! Coffee, Tea, The Gypsy & Me is a truly enchanting read.
