As always she continues to deliver wonderfully written stories, relatable characters and plenty of humour.
Maddie Lamington had a dream; a dream which was WAY bigger than her, but she was still going to try to achieve it. The thing is, whilst baking cakes are either a recipe for disaster or a recipe for a start, Maddie’s long-term dream doesn’t even come with a recipe. Lets hope her timings aren’t out and she doesn’t get a ‘soggy bottom’.
Firstly, excellent surname choice for Maddie! A very clever use of words! If you don’t know, lamingtons are a cake and Maddie makes cakes…
Whilst I am an absolute sucker for a decent cake and a good cuppa, I am finding the whole teashop/café settings a bit too over used. Don’t get me wrong, they are fantastic settings where chic lit’s are concerned; I just feel a bit full up of the same theme. Of course I don’t HAVE to read them, BUT seeing as many of my well liked authors are setting the scene in a café and writing them well, it’s a bit devil you do, devil you don’t. Yes, it’s popular, but so is cake.
Despite my slight irk with the theme (not the authors work fyi), I did enjoy this book overall. Putting cake and dates together was such a genius idea that was, indeed, thoroughly entertaining. Well, as well as tummy rumbling. Mine, not theirs.Read more ›
Maddie, owner of Sweet Street Teashop in Manchester, is feeling a bit deflated at the lack of new customers her beloved shop is bringing in. She bakes scrummy cakes and puts all her heart and soul into the teashop, so she is disappointed and feels like she has wasted the inheritance she got from her late gran. As the book begins, Maddie is brainstorming with her close friend Nicky, and her work friends Victoria and Mags about ideas to bring in some custom. A while later, inspired by Maddie’s dad and regular customer Birdie, they settle on a speed-dating idea which consists of five men, five women, servings of cake at each table and fifteen minutes for each pair to get to know each other over one of Maddie’s sweet treats.
Instantly, I loved the friendships within Jennifer’s new book. Maddie, Nicky, Victoria and Mags were very individual characters, all memorable within their own rights. I really liked Maddie straight away. I felt like there were a few traits in her character I could relate to, not least her speaking before she thinks, sweet tooth and close bond with her dad, and this had me rooting for her straight away. Nicky was the character who made me laugh the most throughout the book.Read more ›
I seem to be gravitating to the world of chick-lit a lot in my reading preferences lately, and in doing so am noticing the trend for the heroine of the story to be the owner of a coffee shop or café type establishment, The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts sticks wholly to that trend, and like many of its predecessors, it was a really enjoyable read.
Maddie Lamingon is our heroine in question this time, and while she loves her little eatery, being on the outskirts of Manchester and tucked down a little known side street, attracting enough custom is proving to be the main problem in keeping her lifelong dream a reality.
"I’m not sure speed dating and teashops go together…"
Desperate measures call for even more desperate ideas, but as it turns out the dating with cake idea seems to have a lot of merit, especially when the local press get a sniff of the story, our Maddie goes from almost on the uppers to baking sensation in the time it takes to cook and ice a batch of cupcakes.
"You’ll laugh about this one day."
Add in a great cast of diverse secondary characters, a little sprinkle of romance, a few laughs, crossed wires and lots and lots of yummy cakes (I have been hunting out Raspberry cheesecake brownie recipes all afternoon) and this was a light and enjoyable read. Low on drama and high on entertainment in its characters and the story being told.
Well worth a look if you are in the market for a stress-free, low-calorie, high one the cake descriptives read!
