Review of Stirred with Love by Marcie Steele - Four *


'Marcie Steele’s STIRRED WITH LOVE will remind you of chatting over coffee with three of your closest girlfriends. A fantastic read about overcoming life’s obstacles with friendship and love.' Talli Roland 

Sometimes the best friends can be found where you least expect them … 

Still grieving after the loss of her beloved husband, Lily Mortimer is determined to do something with the time she has left. 

After the end of her fairytale marriage, thirty-something Kate is trying hard to mend her broken heart. 

Chloe, a young woman with the world at her feet, is struggling to know what to do with her life. 

When Lily embarks on a new venture in the picturesque town of Somerley, the three women come together to open The Coffee Stop, the most charming cafĂ© for miles around. 

But opening a coffee shop is never as simple as it seems, especially when you add neighbouring competition, local heart throbs and heartbreak to the mix. 

When tragedy strikes, can the three women pull together to make the new business fly, or will Lily’s last chance disappear down the drain along with yesterday’s coffee grinds? 

As comforting as a cappuccino and a better pick-me-up than a grande Americano, Stirred with Love will captivate readers of Milly Johnson, Carole Matthews and Jenny Colgan. 

Marcie Steele is the pseudonym of bestselling crime fiction author MEL SHERRATT. 


Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a great chick lit novel. Kate splits from her husband, Chloe has just finished her A Levels and Lily owns an empty tea room. They come together to create a coffee shop and the book follows their struggles.

There are some very human emotions in this book - resentment, jealously, sorrow - and love, friendship and fantastic support.

It is very funny at times - and very sad at others. It really is a great read and I'm grateful to Bookouture for providing me with an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
