    Amazing Read about a little Tea Shop

    This Book was everything and more that I want in a book. It holds three things that are dear to me Love, Tea and Cake. How can you go wrong with a book about a Tea Shop and some love :) Stevie is an amazing 26 year old red head or should i say chestnut - I'd be in trouble is Stevie heard me say red! At the beginning of the book we are introduced to Stevie who is stuck in a rut and not sure where to go. After an unfortunate accident that cost her the job she had working with Corky Middleton a Chef of an up-class restaurant she didn't know what to do with herself. Stevie had to move back in with her mother Hazel who to say the least is not a very nice person. She doesn't seem to believe in Stevie and what she does with her life. Stevie unfortunately loose her Great Aunt Peggy at the beginning of the book too, it turns out that Aunt Peggy isn't a poor as she seemed. Stevie Spent a lot of time with her Aunt over the years while her mother and Sister Fern did not! Because of this Aunt Peggy left Stevie pretty much all her money... two hundred and sixty-three thousand pounds. To start with Stevie was not sure what to do with this money but while searching the web for a job she found a real estate selling a tea shop in a little town called Tanglewood. Stevie went to Tanglewood and won the auction for the tea shop and moved in above it into a two bedroom apartment. To say her mother and sister were not thrilled with the Tea Shop is an understatement. They didn't think that Stevie would be able to make it in the town of Tanglewood and that she would head home with her tail between her legs quick smart! But Stevie Became part of the little town in no time. She made some awesome friends. Betty who was a regular customer over the age of 80 and secretly a baker too. Leanne the local flower shop owner who could drink anyone under the table. Tia the little sister of the hot stable owner and horse trainer. Tia herself was once an amazing horse rider herself but unfortunately ended up in a wheel chair Throughout the book we learn a little more about each character of the book. But for me it is Stevie who is my favourite and I am a little partial to Betty too! It was this book that made me realise that if I could be anything else in the world with unlimited funds I think I would chose to run a tea shop - just like the one in this book. It sounds like so much fun to me! This Book was amazing and I'm glad in the end that Stevie found what she wanted to do with her life and found love while doing it! The author captures the essence of the book right from the beginning and keeps you wanting to read more to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that loves Tea, Cake and Love! Really what more could you ask for :)

    Cute village life romance with cake!

    Three and a half stars. Stevie inherits a small fortune from her aunt Peg and decides to use the money to buy a small tea shop in Tanglewood. Moving from working for a Michelin star restaurant in London to a small tea shop in a small village isn't without its challenges but Stevie soon makes friends. What with dealing with the little old ladies, the yummy mummies and the school children, not to mention her less than supportive family, Stevie has her hands full and don't even get her started on the hunky man she saw riding a horse down the small High Street on her first day in Tanglewood. I enjoyed this cosy small own romance, surely there's nothing better than reading about scrumptious cakes when you've just started a new diet, right :)? In fact my biggest issue with the novel was Stevie herself. I know that her cluelessness was meant to be humorous but honestly I found it exasperating. How can an intelligent woman in her mid-20s not know that when a riding stables talks about Shetlands they mean Shetland ponies? There were other examples, each one of them jarring rather than funny which didn't really gel with the Stevie we had come to know. But that was a small niggle, otherwise this was a joy of village life, friendly locals, scrummy cakes and plenty of eye-candy. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
