Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe by Heather Webber

 
Can you really leave Wicklow once you have spent time there?

Anna Kate came back for her grandmother's funeral and stayed in Wicklow because she was required to spend sixty days there to inherit The Blackbird Cafe.  Anna's mother vowed to NEVER return to Wicklow, and Anna finds out why as the days pass.

Was her mother wrong, though?

The characters all seemed lovable and were folks you would want to have in your life except for a few of them.

As you read, you will feel the warmth of the small town, but also the grudges that some characters can’t let go of.

The blackbird legend was interesting, and the blackbird pies sounded yummy even though Anna was still trying to figure out the secret ingredient her grandmother would never reveal.

Midnight in Wicklow was magical because of the legend of the blackbirds and what they did for those who ate the pie and heard them singing.

MIDNIGHT AT THE BLACKBIRD CAFE was a cozy, nostalgic read that will have you wanting to be in that adorable, loving town and visiting The Blackbird Cafe.

The book was also filled with secrets, characters with regrets, love, and characters who will steal your heart.

If you need an uplifting read, be sure to put MIDNIGHT AT THE BLACKBIRD CAFE on your reading list.

A truly enjoyable, sweet read that will have you examining your choices and have you reaching for the tissue box because of the hominess  and love oozing from the pages.  5/5

This book was given to me as an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    1. I don't think so. It was set in the United States.

      Perhaps the author can elaborate.

      Thanks for commenting, Judy.

  7. I bet I would enjoy this book. I'm wondering, since it's a cafe, if there are recipes in the book.

    1. I lent the book to a friend so I can’t look, but I don’t recall any recipes.

      I may be remembering incorrectly, though.
