Time for Tea Please?
Books, tea and cake, three things I love ! So when I saw The Cake Shop in the Garden by Carole Mathews I knew this book was the one for me. Plus I absolutely love the front cover illustrations !
It sees the the main characters Fay who not only cares for her elderly mother but also runs a cafe in her garden oh and on her canal boat. It’s a story of love, friendship, family turmoil and business, even with unexpected turns and missed/ potential opportunities, it makes an enjoyable read. I wish The Cake Shop in the Garden was real as it certainly seems like my cup of tea.
With tastey sweet and savoury treats mentioned throughout a mug of tea and a slice of cake is a perfect match with this book.
