Blurb; Welcome to Tilly’s Tuscan Teashop, the first book in a brand new series from the author of the Hummingbird Hotel and the Cornish Confetti Agency series.
When photographer Natalie Nicholson’s beach hut studio – and everything she’s spent the last two years working on – is destroyed in a fire, she doesn’t think things can get any worse. Until she sees her boyfriend Josh Clarke on Instagram frolicking on a palm-fringed Balinese beach with a fellow cabin crew member.
Devastated and heartbroken, she heads to Italy to help out at her sister’s English teashop in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, where she encounters sun-dappled hilltop villages with attractive terracotta bell towers, cobbled piazzas housing world-famous art and architecture, and a national fixation with getting from A to B as quickly as possible whether in a glamourous Ferrari, a scarlet Vespa, or a snail-like ape.
With handsome local filmmaker-cum-waiter Matteo Ferretti on hand to guide her, can Tilly learn to ditch her workaholic ways and embrace the Italian pursuit of la dolce vita? Or will she miss out on her chance at a happy-ever-after?
My Review; This is book one in the blossomwood Bay series, and I am already excited and looking forward to seeing what happens in the future for Tilly and her friends. Tilly is an Amazon character who is heading away for a break to help run her sisters tea shop in Italy. It is a feel-good, uplifting, romance, and fresh start story. A brilliant ending for all the characters and the town was a perfect setting. I adored this book and really enjoyed it. A breathe of fresh air from all my thrillers. Made me smile. I’ve got my eye on Matteo myself. Hotting alert. A well deserved four stars and highly recommend. Take a break to Italy with Tilly, you won’t forget it.
