5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book., 29 Jun 2014
I think everybody who reads this beautiful book will want to live in the area, become friends with the people and certainly run their own teashop! From page one I knew I'd love this book and by page 7 it had me of those book that means you won't be doing anything else until you have devoured it.

I loved revisiting the characters and seeing how their lives are evolving, the cast in these books is brilliantly varied and its not just boy meets girl either..the story encompasses a whole variety of relationships and the joys and challenges that go with them.
This story has plenty of 'jeopardy' moments and lots of humour too (which I feel Alexandra Brown writes particularly well).
A well written book always makes you feel that you are actually there and I have such a clear image of the places and people that I feel a bit bereft now that I… Read more
