ABOUT THIS BOOK
Snow is beginning to fall around the cosy Castle Teashop, with its toasty log fire, scrumptious mince pies and delicious hot chocolates. Romance is in the air and Lily King is hoping some winter magic will help to make her dreams come true…
Twenty-five-year-old Lily King is wondering when her life is going to start. She adores working at the much-loved Castle Teashop, surrounded by familiar faces and delicious cakes. But she’s stuck in a rut. She’s just been dumped by her boyfriend and her dream job seems to be slipping through her fingers.
When her best friend Emily Campbell needs urgent help to organise her enchanting Christmas wedding, Lily realises it’s finally her moment to shine and reach for the opportunities she’s been wishing for. Can she pull off the biggest celebration Castle Cove has ever seen or will something - or someone - make things more complicated than she imagined?
Rebellious and handsome photographer Josh Havellin-Scott has always felt like an outsider, especially next to his perfect older brother, who is about to get married. At the last minute, Josh finds himself roped into plans for the Big Day, the very last thing he wants to do, until he is meets creative and quirky Lily King…
When Lily and Josh are thrown together, it’s clear they couldn’t be more different. But they begin to realise that opposites can attract – and sometimes when you’re not looking for love, it comes and finds you when you least expect it. With some festive magic, will they manage to work together and save the day?
And could they discover a winter romance of their very own along the way?
THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TEASHOP OF SECOND CHANCES by Donna Ashcroft is just as delicious as its beautiful cover and is definitely a perfect read to snuggle up with on a cold evening.
Lily King knows what she wants and that is to be a chef but something seems to be stopping her from reaching her true potential and she isn't quite sure how to achieve her dreams. It doesn't help that her love life is a mess and her family a tad overprotective. When she gets a shot at making her dreams come true, Lily's life suddenly gets a lot more complicated - the mother who walked away from her when she was a baby returns, a handsome stranger almost runs her off the road, and she has to help organise her best friend's wedding with the groom's brother whom she has never met. Oh, and it also happens to be Christmas which means she is run off her feet at the lovely teashop where she also works. Add in some misunderstandings, some Christmas magic, and a character who finally understands who she really is and sit back and enjoy the journey.
The setting is stunning in this story and I could picture the teashop and the mouth-watering desserts every time without fail (a piece of advice - get yourself a slice of cake and a cup of tea before you sit down to read this book!). The characters are endearing and very down-to-earth and while the pace is slow, it is never boring or drawn out. While this story can be read as a standalone, why deny yourself the enjoyment of more good books and it will help with some of the backstories in THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TEASHOP OF SECOND CHANCES.
For a lovely, heartwarming, and truly enjoyable read, look no further than THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TEASHOP OF SECOND CHANCES by Donna Ashcroft. It is sure to make you smile.
