After Simone's tragic and unexpected death, Kate finds herself the owner of a half-share in The Tea Chest and is determined to realise Simone's dream of opening a branch in London - the other side of the world. Enter Judy - the other part-owner of the business. Judy has very different plans for the future of the shops, she'd like to sell up and get out. Kate is no business woman, she's creative, a designer - but she also shares Simone's vision and makes the huge decision to fly across the world to make the dream a reality.
Kate meets the other two main characters in this story; Leila and Elizabeth, and between them they face the challenge of converting what can only be described as a dump of a shop into a welcoming tea shop - that makes a profit. Along the way they deal with arrogant contractors, neighbours who would rather not have any competition, dodgy labour and frightening financiers, as well as dealing with their own individual problems.
Josephine Moon blends her story as well as Kate blends her tea. There is humour, and there are tears. Each woman has their own individual voice that adds layers to the story, increasing the depth of the plot. The reader is also let into the back story of Judy and Simone, which explains just why Judy takes the stand that she does. To be honest, I felt as though that part was sometimes a little distracting, but it did help to understand Judy's personality somewhat.
A good debut from Josephine Moon; the tea-room setting and the detailed description of tea blending is a refreshing change from the high-flying office block settings of many novels of this genre.
