The Seafront Tea Rooms by Vanessa Greene
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A highly enjoyable tale of its kind having just the right balance of romance, family life, cookery, intrigue and a nice addition of a veterinary practice. The tea room of the title forms the meeting place of three girls, two lonely beings and one a journalist for a food magazine. With lots of colour, lots of background and lots of human interest, this is a cut above the norm in this chic-lit area.

If you like Vanessa Greene you might also like to read books by Carol Matthews, Katie Fforde and Trisha Ashley.

Synopsis

The Seafront Tea Rooms by Vanessa Greene

The Seafront Tea Rooms is a peaceful hideaway, away from the bustle of the seaside, and in this quiet place a group of women find exactly what they've been searching for. Charismatic journalist Charlotte is on a mission to scope out Britain's best tea rooms. She knows she's found something special in the Seafront Tea Rooms but is it a secret she should share? Kathryn, a single mother whose only sanctuary is the 'Seafront', convinces Charlie to keep the place out of her article by agreeing to join her on her search. Together with another regular, Seraphine, a culture-shocked French au pair with a passion for pastry-making, they travel around the country discovering quaint hideaways and hidden gems. But what none of them expect is for their journey to surprise them with discoveries of a different kind ...Full of romance, tea and cake, The Seafront Tea Rooms is a heart-warming tale about the strength found in true friendship.

About the Author

Vanessa Greene hosted her first tea party at eight, to a select gathering of stuffed bears. Since then she's trawled antiques markets from Portobello to Paris, Brighton to Buenos Aires, to build her teacup collection and feed her addiction to all things vintage. She still loves an excuse to bring friends together - but nowadays her guests are less shy about trying the cake. Vanessa is in her thirties and lives in north London with her partner. The Vintage Teacup Club is her first novel.
