I was looking forward to reading the final part in this series and didn't disappoint me at all this book was my favourite out of the three it flowed so well and the characters were great. Full of Christmas and mystery with romance and a simple read with a great conclusion.
Rosie is continuing to work in the windmill cafe and her ex has turned up wanting to make amends and offer her a stake in the business she has a decision to make as she has fallen for gorgeous Matt and who does she really want

I love the Windmill cafe series-this in the final book in the series.
There is a wedding booked and the stag and hen party are staying. When one of the guests has an accident Rosie is asked to investigate along with Matt, who runs the outward bound centre. The spark between them is starting to ignite.
A Christmas Tree competition has sparked everyones imagination and they all want to create a masterpiece and some of the decorations sound just wonderful.

Without doubt The Windmill Café series has been a highlight of my reading this year, I chanced upon it by accident when I spotted book one Summer Breeze and have been enthralled ever since. What sets this series apart is that it's not your usual run of the mill girl meets boy story, instead within each book is an element of mystery that pervades throughout the story and our main character Rosie Barnes has become the investigator. Normally I would run a mile from these kind of books but Poppy Bla ...more

This is the third book of Poppy Blake's 'The Windmill Café' series which I was not aware of before I started reading however this wasn't a problem as the lovely tale was easy to follow as a stand-alone short story.

It is a lovely Christmas story with all the friendship, romance, mystery and suspense which goes into making the perfect family Christmas romance.  I enjoyed the fast pace of this book which is expertly penned and will be recommending to fellow readers.

Thank you to NetGalley, Harper Im

The third instalment of the Windmill Cafe follows the same formula as the first two with the culmination of the ‘will they won’t they’ relationship between Matt and Rosie. Not quite as many yummy food descriptions as in the previous two. Not disappointing but not overly exciting either. I liked it but didn’t love it.

The Windmill Cafe: Christmas Trees, is the third book in the Windmill Cafe series by author Poppy Blake. I did not realize that this story was the third installment of short stories. However, I had no problem following the story even though I have not read the previous two that have been released. The first installment is called The Windmill Cafe: Summer Breeze. The second installment is called The Windmill Cafe: Autumn Leaves. I am hoping that the author combines the three and releases them as ...more

The Windmill Café: Christmas Trees is the third book in The Windmill Café series. Rosie Barnes lives and works in a windmill café and is excited about the upcoming Christmas Tree Carousel competition and the wedding of her friends Grace and Josh. The excitement is ruined when Theo, a member of the stag party, is injured during a biking competition and it appears to be no accident. It seems that anyone with motive to injure Theo must be involved in the wedding and Grace doesn’t want her wedding t ...more

Okay so hands up who made a slight error! I thought when I requested this book it was the finished version, it was in fact part 3 (of 3 short stories - due to be combined into 1 complete novel).

But oh wow it did not disappoint! There were a number of characters to meet but it quickly settled down so I knew who was who and their role in the story. Grace and Josh are due to get married on Christmas Eve but on the stag party a member of the merry gang has an incident....

This is my first by this author but it won't be my last... I will be adding the other's in this series to my TBR pile and will re-read this one in the correct order.

I didn't realise this was the 3rd instalment in this series when I requested it on Netgalley but that said I think you can read it as a stand-alone... you just won't understand the references to things from previous books.

A Christmas setting... romance and a bit of a mystery... what more could you want?

Disclaimer: I had not read the previous books in #TheWindmillCafe Series; however, I am living proof that you don’t need to.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, it had a little bit of romance, friendship, family and suspense. Having gone in blind, I hadn’t realized that there was a whodunit plot in each of the books in the series. I enjoyed learning more about each of the characters, not just their good side, the ‘perfect’ face they show the world but thanks to the detective duo we see under the ven

This is a pleasant holiday romance with a touch of mystery. Third in a series, the previous titles would probably add more depth to the story, but I had no problem following the characters despite missing the first two books. While pondering a business offer to return to London, Rosie prepares the cafe to host a Christmas tree decoration contest and her friends' Christmas Eve wedding. Then a not-so-accidental accident happens to one of the stag party and the mystery begins.
Very pleasant if pred

I did enjoy this book and feel oddly bereft now I've finished it. So why didn't I give it 5 stars?? Good question. In some ways I preferred Autumn Leaves and I preferred Christmas Trees in others. I admit, in both Autumn Leaves and Christmas Trees I figured out whodunit (not so much Summer Breeze although I wasn't far off!!) but that didn't spoil my enjoyment at all. I will definitely read more by Poppy Blake. These books are definitely worth a read. Thanks to NetGalley and Publishers for my cop ...more

This book's lovely, entertaining and fun to read. I loved the plot, the characters and the settings, so cozy and friendly.
It's a stand-alone novel but it's better to read the previous instalments in order to have a better understament.
Many thanks to HarperImpulse and Netgalley for this ARC
