    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 .

    A cute love story with some mouthwatering baking

    Rosie's Travelling Tea Shop takes you on a journey of self-awareness and of course, finding true love. Rosie is a successful chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant in London, who suddenly finds herself separated from her husband, Callum who left her for a co-worker of his, and a realization that she needs to completely overhaul her over-planned and meticulous life. So she quits her job, purchases a fuchsia caravan named Poppy and sets off on a life-altering choice of selling her comfort food goodies while meeting Aria and Max where she finds genuine friendship and love. Little does she know that not only do the people she meets on her new nomadic way of life force her out of her comfort zone, but they also benefit from Rosie's friendship, loyalty and outlook on life. This tale is a cute story of new found friendships that remind people what matters most. This quote sums up what I liked about the story: "I think back on my life of hastily-bought purchases, the must-have denim, impulse buys of make-up I've never worn...electronics that are now outmoded, so many things I've wasted my hard-earned money on thinking it would fill the gap, the void inside of me. And now I see with such life-altering clarity, that all those material things did the exact opposite of fulfilling me, they held me back, kept in me in debt, kept me working to maintain a lifestyle that didn't satisfy me...With so much less, I have so much more...The real gift, as I'm coming to learn, is the people in your life, the friendships you nurture, the people you give your heart to. That can't be bought." What I didn't find endearing was that the ending was predictable,. Also, it seemed a little rushed when Max finally professes his love for Rosie. Rosie just had literally just was pining away over Oliver before finding out she was catfished. Although, the intention of this genre is to be lighthearted, it touched upon mental illness and heartbreak that aren't so. Overall, although it had shortfalls, it was a cute story.
