Review; The Cosy Teashop in the Castle (The Cosy Teashop #1) by Caroline Roberts
In the search for something light and fitting for the Foodies Read Challenge, I ended up reading The Cosy Tea Shop In The Castle by Caroline Roberts. Today I'll post the review of the novel.
Description from Goodreads
When Ellie Hall lands her dream job running the little teashop in the beautiful but crumbling Claverham Castle, it’s the perfect escape from her humdrum job in the city. Life is definitely on the rise as Ellie replaces spreadsheets for scones, and continues her Nanna’s brilliant baking legacy.
When Lord Henry, the stick-in-the-mud owner, threatens to burst her baking bubble with his old-fashioned ways, Ellie wonders if she might have bitten off more than she can chew. But cupcake by cupcake she wins the locals over, including teashop stalwart, Doris, and Ellie’s showstopping bakes look set to go down in castle history!
Now all that’s missing in Ellie’s life is a slice of romance – can Joe, the brooding estate manager, be the one to put the cherry on the top of Ellie’s dream?
My Thoughts On The Book
It was a sweet and light read. In addition, it made me want to eat a lot of cake and luckily the recipe for Nanna's Choffee Cake was printed in the back (a cake that was often mentioned in the book). Perhaps soon time to do some baking?
