4* Review: The Cosy Tea shop in the Castle- Caroline Roberts

Blurb - Coastal

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?

The Cosy Teashop in the Castle

The storyline for this book really appealed to me; I love Northumberland and my guilty secret is that I would love to run my own teashop. So it was easy to understand Ellie’s dreams and aspirations for the teashop in the castle. Ellie’s enthusiasm, courage to try something new and to stick at it, even when there are problems makes her easy to like, you want her to succeed.
Joe’s affable exterior hides a multitude of secrets.
The teashop is a lovely setting and I would have liked to have got to know more about the ‘regular’s that visited it.
The romance between Ellie and Joe is lovely, with lots of easy to relate to funny moments. There is plenty of heat, perhaps a little too much for such a gentle storyline?
This is a nice cosy read for a cold winter’s afternoon.
I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
