Life is full of second chances….. if only you keep your heart open for them. Spring Hill Square is a pretty sanctuary away from the bustle of everyday life. And at its centre is Lenni Merryman’s Teashop on the corner, specialising in cake, bookish stationery and compassion. And for three people, all in need of a little TLC, it is somewhere to find a friend to lean on. Carla Pride has just discovered that her late husband Martin was not who she thought he was. And now she must learn to put her marriage behind her and move forward. Molly Jones’s ex- husband Harvey has reappeared in her life after many years, wanting to put right the wrongs of the past before it’s too late.Will Linton’s business has gone bust and his wife has left him to pick up the pieces. Now he needs to gather the strength to start again.
Can all three find the comfort they are looking for in the Teashop on the corner? And as their hearts are slowly mended by Leni, can they return the favour when she needs it the most?
A story of love, friendship and second chances that will warm your heart and rekindle your hope.
This book was such an enjoyable read. I was hooked just from the first page. If only there was a teashop on everyone’s corner. I know I would be in there everyday, decadent cakes, pretty literary based stationary and also they customers who like nothing more than to have a good discussion about books. There are many characters in this book but need not be afraid as Milly brings them to life particularly well. They all get to know each other very well and form real friendships and they seem to find something that has been missing in their lives. I fell in love with each and every character but I think Molly was my favourite.
This is a book that will stir up all your emotions. Just be warned by the end you will need a box of tissues at the ready as it is a real tear jerker. Best book I’ve read so far of 2014.
