It was great to read of two "middle aged" widows finding love and happiness again.
Jo's best friend Hattie is feeling equally despondent. Her rat of a husband has treated her badly. Despite Jo warning Hattie about her husbands infidelity, Hattie choose to ignore it until finally realising Jo was right. Now, she too is alone. However, Hattie isn't going to let the small matter of a broken heart stop her and she manages to talk Jo into having a holiday visiting Jo's son in Barbados. And, so the two women set off on their own little adventure.
I really enjoyed this book and I adored Hattie! She was totally nuts and one of a kind. Despite giving the impression of someone who was simply crashing through life, swatting away all her own hurt and pain, Hattie is actually quite a worldly wise woman with a sensible head (whenever she chooses) and a heart as big as the Caribbean itself. Her exploits in the book had me laughing out loud at times. But, through all her bravado, Hattie is as vulnerable as Jo.
Set in the beautiful Caribbean, the story introduces such a wealth of wonderful and colourful characters who really add such a fun dimension to the book. And, thankfully Hattie fits right in with her over enthusiastic embrace of all things fun (and alcoholic!). The story reminds us that life and fun don't have to end just because we are a certain age. Life is still full of second chances and lots of love if we just open our eyes and look hard enough. Sometimes its closer than we think.
What I loved most about the book is the strong bond between Jo and Hattie despite being two completely different women from different backgrounds. They were such great friends who clearly love and support one another in their very different ways. This was a fun read with a serious message and I highly recommend it. Although the second book in the series it can be read as a standalone and I didn't feel at anytime at a disadvantage for not having read the first book in the series.
Part of the novel is set in the Caribbean and through the wonderful descriptions I felt I was with Jo and Hattie on their holiday. I could almost feel the sun on my face as well as hear the sea. You certainly can't help but get caught up in the whole holiday feel.
Jo is still trying to get over the loss of her husband and even though she is still trying to figure out which direction to take her life, I did want to give her a good shake so she could see what was right under her nose back in Cumbria.
Poor Pete is head over heels in love with Jo. To be fair I think Jo does take advantage of Pete to a certain extent and doesn't treat him as well as he deserves. He really is a lovely man and is determined to try and win Jo over even though his attempts don't always go as well to plan.
Hattie is very much a larger than life characters in more ways than one. She certainly brings a sense of fun to the whole story.
Coffee, Tea, the Caribbean & Me is a light hearted and lovely read that will brighten up your day and bring some fun and sunshine into your life whatever time of the year it is.
