The Vintage Teacup Club Book Review No. 24..(oh & 23)

Before we begin, please go over to my other blog to find the missing review. No. 23 is a book review which isn't strictly of a book. Confused? Well hop on over and all will become clear..

the vintage tea cup club

At a car boot sale in Sussex, three very different women meet and fall for the same vintage tea set. They decide to share it - and form a friendship that changes their lives . . .

Jenny can't wait to marry Dan. Then, after years of silence, she hears from the woman who could shatter her dreams.

Maggie has put her broken heart behind her and is gearing up for the biggest event of her career - until she's forced to confront the past once more.

Alison seems to have it all: married to her childhood sweetheart, with two gorgeous daughters. But as tensions mount, she is pushed to breaking point.

Dealing with friendship and families, relationships and careers, highs and lows, The Vintage Teacup Club is heart-warming storytelling at its very best.

This book  is a confirmed case of judging-a-book-by-it’s-cover. Which I admit I am guilty of more than once in a blue moon. I don’t care what anyone says. If the cover doesn't jump out and grab me by the neck then sorry, I am not buying. No matter how many prizes it’s won.

So anyone who knows me at all would say that this book could have been written for and/or by me.

It has everything in it which I love. Pretty tea cups. Vintage weddings (& Alice in Wonderland themed too…could it be any more cliché?)

Three girls decide that instead of tearing each others limbs off in order to buy the perfect tea set at the boot sale (which I may or may not have been tempted to do…) they will take the civilised route & take turns.

One to use at her own wedding, one to use at a wedding she is planning, and lastly they will become tea cup candles for a small business.

This is a debut novel, and oh my, if Vanessa Greene’s future novels are anything like this you can safely assume I will be a fan.

A wonderfully easy engaging novel about new friendships, (oh and tea cups) the characters could be my friends any day of the week. 

Really. Go get it. Have a cuppa (vintage china purleeease) sit by the fire…and read.

  3. I would love to read this book while having a tea. I totally judge a book by it's cover (sometimes the story isn't great) but this one would jump out at me. Alice in Wonderland themed wedding :)
