Award-winning digital first publisher HarperImpulse are so excited to announce the acquisition of World All Language rights for a heartwarming, seasonal series from debut author, Poppy Blake.
The Windmill Café is a gorgeous three-part series, set on the gorgeous Norfolk coast, that will follow the lives and loves of Rosie and Matt. It’s a story about the importance of friendship, family and the therapeutic benefits of baking up a storm when things get tough. The café will open its doors in March 2018 with book one, Summer Breeze – the perfect summer read to indulge in at the beach. Autumn Leaves will follow in July and the final installment, Christmas Trees will be published in September.
Poppy Blake is an avid scribbler of contemporary romance and romcoms. When not writing she loves indulging in the odd cocktail or two – the more exotic the better – accompanied by a tower of cupcakes topped with as much icing and decorations as possible.
Charlotte Ledger, Editorial Director at HarperImpulse, said: ‘My aunty and uncle got married in a windmill in Norfolk so immediately this series held a special appeal for me. More importantly, Poppy is a wonderful writer and she brings the café and its community to life with warmth and humour. It’s gorgeous!’
Poppy Blake said: ‘It’s a dream come true to have my Windmill Café series published by the wonderful people at HarperImpulse. I’ve loved working with Charlotte who helped me to make the stories really sparkle. I can’t wait to invite everyone into the café for a sumptuous afternoon tea in the first of the series – Summer Breeze.’
