Review: Stormy Weather at Castle Court (Part 3) by Holly Hepburn

Sadie is a single mum, nursing a broken heart. Cat is burned out from working long hours as a chef. They decide to invest in their dream – running their own handmade biscuit shop in gorgeous Castle Court, a three-storey food court tucked away behind Chester's bustling streets.
They soon discover that Castle Court has its own community – a little haven of delight against the stresses of the outside world. But not everyone welcomes the new business; the patisserie owner is less than pleased by what she sees as direct competition and Greg, who runs the fancy bistro that dominates one end of the courtyard, doesn't thinkSadie and Cat have the talent or business acumen to succeed. Luckily, there's support in the form of the delectable Jaren, who owns the Dutch waffle house opposite Smart Cookies, and Swiss chocolate-shop owner, Elin. And if all else fails, the friends can drown their sorrows in the cocktail bar that overlooks the court.

Review: Wow the drama really ramps up in this, the third part in the castle court series. The action happens right from the word go as well as a storm rampages through castle court. Of course our favourite heroines know just how to deal with the issues it causes but there is yet more drama to come. I love how action packed each of these episodes are but Holly Hepburn has definitely included the most drama and conflict for our girls in this episode. They have more than enough on their plate as it is, expect to be on the edge of your seat for this one. 

The characters of Sadie and Cat really do get to show their strength more that ever in this episode, as if them setting up a business on their own in an already established community wasn't show of strength enough. cat has more to deal with than Sadie this time, but they know that they are strong confident women, and the wonderful thing is that they are not afraid to ask for help from those around them. They may seem a little stubborn on the outside, but deep down they know who to trust and who not to. 

The fact that this whole series focuses on these women owning their own business and sorting out their own issues is incredibly empowering. Yes there might be some talk of men in their live, but ultimately, all of their success is down to them. There is a phrase that I loved in this instalment that just really typifies how much of a cheer for strong women this series is. Rather than saying one of the characters felt like she had gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali, she uses Nicola Adams for the analogy, I cheered at this!

I can't believe that we're already done with part 3 of this series. I can't wait to see what Holly Hepburn has in store for us in the final part of this series!
