As you can tell from the title, The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts is all about tea, cake and love. The story starts with a broken heart, Maddie's, who after breaking it up with her fiancé decides to finally open her own teashop. The problem is that nobody has noticed it so far so her customers are really scarce.

What I liked about this story is that it had a very original idea behind the main plot: speed dating with cake. I especially liked the first idea Maddie had, to match people according to their cake choices. But the idea was not as well executed as I first hoped. The story was quite slow, with not many things happening at first, except the fact that the teashop was in trouble. Then the idea of speed dating came up and again, there was a lot of talking but not a lot of action and when it finally happened, it was done and dusted quite quickly.

I was also a bit in two minds about the characters. Some of them I really liked, like Maddie, Mags or Caleb but then there were a few characters that got a lot of mentions in the story but nothing really happened with them, like the couple that worked next door, George and Rehana or Maddie's ex-best friend. I think there was no need to add them, as there were enough main characters with their own stories and problems.

This doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy reading this book. It actually made me smile a lot and it's quite an easy read to enjoy this summer. Especially if you enjoy cake and sweet treats as it's full of ideas and descriptions that had my mouth watering the whole time. I'm sure I'll try my hand at baking more than one of the treats mentioned.

OK this is such a great read I'm definitely looking into more books by Jennifer Joyce. What a lovely story with lots of scrummy treats (totally ran you the shop with cake cravings midway through this book!). I'm rubbish at writing reviews so this is as good as it gets, but definitely a 5* book.

Lighthearted feel good novel. Just what I needed at the time. A bit predictable but it didn't matter to me......I liked the characters.

Unusual but I really enjoyed it. I wonder if the theory would work in real life!

Another fantastic novel from Jennifer Joyce.

As always she continues to deliver wonderfully written stories, relatable characters and plenty of humour.

This is a lovely escapist chick-lit. The characters are sweet and you root for their happiness. The only problem I found was the constant mention of cakes made me hungry all the time!!

When I first saw the cover and title for Jennifer’s book, I felt a sense of Deja vu and it took me a good while to work out why. But then, as I was trawling Amazon for more books (to add to my 42254456 (estimate) unread books on my TBR pile, I worked out why I got deja vu. The title is incredibly similar to a book that was published last year by a different author, but it really caught me off guard as I thought I had already read Jennifer’s book.
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.

In The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts, Jennifer Joyce serves up a tale of romance and friendship just as sweet and delicious as a cake baked by Maddie Lamington. I really love Jennifer’s books. None of them ever fail to put a smile on my face when reading them. With The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts, I was snatching any moment I could just to read a few more pages and grinning from ear to ear when doing so. It’s an uplifting read with romances brewing from every corner and I adored every single page.

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.
