“Whatever cake and tea can’t fix, the open road can.”
The trip of a lifetime!
Rosie Lewis has her life together.
A swanky job as a Michelin-Starred Sous Chef, a loving husband and future children scheduled for exactly January 2021.
That’s until she comes home one day to find her husband’s pre-packed bag and a confession that he’s had an affair.
Heartbroken and devastated, Rosie drowns her sorrows in a glass (or three) of wine, only to discover the following morning that she has spontaneously invested in a bright pink campervan to facilitate her grand plans to travel the country.
Now, Rosie is about to embark on the trip of a lifetime, and the chance to change her life! With Poppy, her new-found travelling tea shop in tow, nothing could go wrong, could it…?
A laugh-out-loud novel of love, friendship and adventure! Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin. (Goodreads)
This is such a charming and adorable read. I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the book. I loved each and every character, and the author has really created each person with proper depth and complexity. I loved how the author captured the true essence of book lovers. I completely agree (based on her bio) that she is a true bibliophile.
“Let’s not take any weapons. Let’s just be fierce in body and mind.”
I loved Poppy the campervan, she is a character all on her own. I also adored the idea of “Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop” with its literary tea blends; and its companion mobile bookstore “The Little Bookshop of Happy Ever After”. If only I can meet them in real life!
“All those material things did the exact opposite of fulfilling me, they held me back, kept me in debt, kept me working to maintain a lifestyle that didn’t satisfy me at all. With so much less, I have so much more.”
This book will read like a breeze but it will take you to different places and make you push yourself to the limits of your comfort zone. More than the romance, it will also teach you about friendship and the best and worst forms of humanity. What matters in the end is that you always see the beauty and joy in the world, and just keep on driving on this road called life.
“There is no right way to walk this earth, and we can only learn from those in our lives, take whatever lesson we can from it and keep going.”
