The Little Teashop of Lost and Found is a cosy book. The cover of it is adorable, I like it a lot. Make a tea, grab a scone and have a read.
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?
Alice Rose had a unique appearance in this world. She was found as a baby on the Yorkshire moors above Haworth. Her step father was a loving man but the same couldn’t be said about her stepmother. Ever since she was a child Alice had struggled to find the place where she belongs.
The only thing that brings her comfort and a sense of home is baking. This explains her choice to invest her money into a Teashop in the town where she grew up. She had paid for the place before she had actually seen it, she had only seen pictures of it. The place needed more work than she expected but Alice has the help of a handsome man who appears to be her new neighbour. Nile helps her not only with the renovation but with discovering the secrets about her birth. He even introduced her to his lovely family, who accepted Alice as one of them.
It was interesting for me to follow the preparation of Alice of opening the Teashop and how she is trying to discover the mystery of her biological mother at the same time. The twist at the end caught me totally off guard.
The little teashop of lost and found is easy readable book with lovely characters. There are even few recipes at the end of the book that you can try if you are into it.
