Wind Chime Café by Sophie Moss, is a wonderfully sweet story about Annie and Will. Annie is a single mother looking for a fresh start after her daughter suffers a horrible trauma. Moving to Heron Island will give them the opportunity at a fresh start and the opportunity to set down some roots in a quiet hometown setting.
Will is a Navy SEAL recently back after a tragic accident during his last deployment. He finds himself back on the island he grew up on after his grandparents’ death. Will plans to sell the Inn which has been in his family for years. Unfortunately, Will’s change of heart has a direct effect on Annie’s plans for a restaurant, and her source of income, for her and her daughter Taylor.
Despite the instant attraction between Will and Annie, Annie needs to be focused on her goal and she wants to keep Taylor safe. Interestingly, Will connects with Taylor as their experiences were similar and along the way they take turns helping each other.
No love story comes without a few snags along the way to a happily ever after and this story is no different. When it turns out that the potential buyer for Will’s Inn is actually Taylor’s father that she never new, feelings get hurt and misunderstandings threaten this couple’s chance at happiness.
Moss does a great job incorporating some tough topics which mirror some recent tragedies that have crossed our lives over the past few years. She does a wonderful job with imagery as you truly get a feel for the island and those that live there.
Wind Chime Café was a sweet read that even brought a tear to my eye. Overall, the story was enjoyable, the characters are realistic, and despite the tragedies, still remains an upbeat, happy story which I am sure people will enjoy.
