Using her marketing skills she tries to make the vintage shop with its floral fabrics and shabby chic furniture profitable, while building a new life away from the city.

It's an old fashioned shop and a house combined, with one of the most beautiful cottage gardens Esmie has ever seen, filled with sweet peas, pink bluebells, pansies and tea roses.

Will Esmie the city girl find romance and love here? Is local hotel owner, Grant, the man for her? Or perhaps Angus who owns the tearoom? And how much trouble will Esmie cause with her meddling and mischief during the long hot summer?

Find out in this exciting romance set in summer in the West Coast of Scotland.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic Summer Read 9 July 2013
    By Paula
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It's just one of those really uplifting really takes you away into a place where you would like to be stories. A lovely setting, good characters, some sadness, some humour. Also it's just one of many others in the series. You won't be disappointed.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight nonsense but enjoyable 10 Nov. 2013
    By Linda
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book has all the elements I love. City girl finds a new life in a cosy quaint coastal town ( obviously Troon) and is conveniently given a beautiful shop and cosy cottage. It's very lightweight, escapist nonsense and enjoyable for that. However, it is poorly written and the plot could do with so e "meat" on the bones. Everything magically falls I to place for the heroine without much anguish. I would quite like to have seen so e twists and turns. The shop could have needed a lot of work and be less than perfect. The town seems to be full of single, gorgeous business owners. Highly unlikely particularly in that area . The sun constantly shines and is expected to shine for the wedding next year ( it's the rainy west of Scotland for goodness sake)!
    Cathy Kelly she ain't. I won't be rushing to read any more of her books as they lack a whole lot of substance. But even so, if you are feeling down they are a nice frothy undemanding lightweight read

    5.0 out of 5 stars Coastal delight 14 July 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Light summery read, delightfully wistful of a life that we linger for methinks! You can taste the exquisite ice creams! Drool over the tearoom scrummages and feel sexy and feminine in the tea dresses and accessories! All packed in a novella! Brilliant!

    5.0 out of 5 stars The vintage tea dress shop in summer. 20 Aug. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The mixture of tea shop and vintage clothes sounds unlikely, but here it works wonders. Believable characters and situations with unexpected happenings make an enjoyable story. Great as a holiday read or to cheer up a wet afternoon.
