Oh what a glorious treat of a book this is, warm and enticing, with captivating dark and spicy notes. Alice has experienced loss and rejection during her life, baking soothes her soul, and just when she experiences her most heartbreaking low, she finds herself opening a cafe. There’s a veritable feast of characters to be found within the pages, each adds a twist to procedings and are essential to the story. Another voice is heard, one that causes a crack to appear in the mirror of life, plus a contorted fairy-tale hides in plain sight within the story. Trisha Ashley writes with empathy, compassion, and a beautifully light touch, ensuring I simply galloped through this lovely tale. ‘The Little Teashop of Lost and Found’, excites, soothes, tickles, and is the perfect book to cuddle up with and lose yourself in. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Little Teashop of Lost and Found by Trisha Ashley

Alice Rose is a foundling, discovered on the Yorkshire moors above Haworth as a baby. Adopted but then later rejected again by a horrid step-mother, Alice struggles to find a place where she belongs. Only baking - the scent of cinnamon and citrus and the feel of butter and flour between her fingers - brings a comforting sense of home. So it seems natural that when she finally decides to return to Haworth, Alice turns to baking again, taking over a run-down little teashop and working to set up an afternoon tea emporium. Luckily she soon makes friends - including a Grecian god-like neighbour - who help her both set up home and try to solve the mystery of who she is. There are one or two last twists in the dark fairytale of Alice's life to come ...but can she find her happily ever after? Wonderfully wry, heart-warming and life-affirming, Trisha Ashley's hilarious novel is perfect for fans of romantic comedies. And it contains recipes!

Reviews

'Glorious escapism ... A foundling turned star baker, a tough childhood, the Yorkshire moors and a dashing neighbour are a winning mix in this bittersweet novel with nods to the Brontes' The Lady

'I loved The Little Teashop of Lost and Found which has Trisha's trademark gentle humour, a range of appealing characters, and a warm and comforting tone. It is also wonderfully page-turning, thanks to a clever narrative device and an unexpected twist in the (fairy) tale.' Isabel Wolff

'A wonderful story starring a wounded but feisty heroine I couldn't help but love, together with a cast of delightful as well as some inventively horrible characters. Trisha took me to the Yorkshire moors and made me feel truly at home there. The dark streak running through the narrative makes the story all the more compelling. A great read.' Margaret James, Writing Magazine

'I thoroughly enjoyed it ... [Trisha's] writing is down-to-earth, wryly witty and so humane' Carol Drinkwater

'A charming story about discovering who you really are and where you belong - topped off with a hearty sprinkling of mouth-watering baking and irresistible romance ... A delightful novel from one of Britain's best romantic comedy writers.' Culturefly.co.uk

About the Author

Trisha Ashley

Trisha Ashley gave up her fascinating but time-consuming hobbies of house-moving and divorce a few years ago in order to settle in North Wales, though her only claim to the area is a Welsh grandmother. After many years puzzling over which quarter of her is Welsh, she's decided it's probably her writing arm. She has had many part-time jobs over the years, but her current one as a seasonal worker for the National Trust neatly combines three of her greatest interests: historic houses, gardens and meeting people.
