    Sometimes you need some light and easy reading material for lifting mood, and this is one of those books. I enjoyed reading from the start till the end. It is a Rosie's story about finding herself while she is on a journey around UK in her campervan that she bought while she was drunk after she was left by her cheating husband. Just perfect book that keeps your attention. I'm looking forward of reading Rebecca Raisin other books

    Not really my book

    The story was written as a narrative in the third person omniscient point of view. The characters are described in an indirect manor. The conflicts include other characters, self, society and technology (but not in the way you may think). The theme does posses many popular ones including love, death, survival, courage, and prejudice (also not in the way one would think). Rosie Lewis is a planner but when all of her plans come crashing back at her, she needs to decide how is she going to survive in this new world. Rosie is our protagonist who come off very flat and but slowly as she meets new characters her world begins to dynamically change and we see more about her and understand why the first opinion was given. Her main confidant is former boss Shelly and new friend/festival neighbour Aria. Max has returned to the world of nomadic lifestyles and joining the festival circuit with his vegan treats. He is a round character as he acts like a softie but was soldier whose parents know everything about the festivals. He is our main antagonist and often butts heads with Rosie over simple things like sugar and animal products but has a caring nature, he does in some ways go through a change but not really. The evil character here is ‘Oliver’, another traveler who works as a photographer but not all is what it seems with this character. The exposition lays out where Rosie was when her world came crashing down upon her. The rising action shows how she doesn’t realize that she has overcome all of her failed dreams. The climax is hit when Poppy, Rosie’s van, comes to a halt and she has to figure out costs and expenses all while deciding whether or not she wants to stay. The falling action allows us to know more about the extra characters and the community that circuit is. The resolution finally gives us some much needed conclusion on the battle of Max vs Oliver in who is going to win Rosie’s heart. The writer’s ideas were interesting and did make for a good plot but the organization was lacking and the story didn’t have a good flow. Some of the word choices or situations were ones you would expect from this type of story. The storyline with Oliver dragged on much to long and didn’t really add anything to the story overall. No, I would not recommend this book. Readers who would enjoy this book are those looking for a quick read, that has some pointless storylines. Readers who would not enjoy this book are those who enjoy stories with logical flow, non missing scenes, and storylines that help develop the main plot.

    Uplifting story !

    I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley In exchange for an honest review. Rosie’s traveling tea shop was a wonderful book about self discovery and stepping out of one’s comfort zone when life comes to a halt and demands change . Rosie is a woman who pretty much has her life planned out . A perfectionist . Everything is fine until her birthday, when her husband surprises her with terrible news ... he’s leaving her for another woman ! Now it’s time to uproot her life and step out into the world to try new things . A traveling tea business . We go along the ride with the ups, downs and hiccups . Such an uplifting story ! Loved this book !! This was my first time reading anything by this author and I will look forward to more of her books in the future .

    I really enjoyed this book. It read like I was riding along side the character. I was attached to her from the beginning and cheered her on. While there isn't a lot of depth to the plot the characters driven story line carried the book very well. I liked how it opened up the world of traveling shops and how it even has its own culture. I would highly recommend this book for anyone in the mood for a light contemporary read about a woman learning to let go of control and how to live life in the moment.

    There was a lovely feeling to the whole book

    Very enjoyable story about Rosie, a hard working Michelin starred sous-chef who is cheated on and dumped by her husband. He is also a chef and the gossip is rife in their community so Rosie decides to have a complete change after the split, as she needs to find a new home anyway. She decides that she also needs a break from her hectic life so she ends up buying a bright pink camper van called Poppy, hands in her notice at her job, and heads off into the sunset to sell comfort food at festivals around the country. This decision may have been drink fuelled(!), as she didn't initially remember even buying Poppy until it's previous owner turned up to deliver it, but it was the best decision she ever made. It was a steep learning curve, driving a van around the country, living and cooking in a small space, and trying to make ends meet. But she made some lovely friends (Aria and Max) and found romance and a new life along the way, albeit with a slightly mysterious email 'friend' helping her along the way. There was a lovely feeling to the whole book and I really enjoyed Rosie's journey, and absolutely loved Max!
