If this story doesn’t make you cry, your heart may be made of stone.

This has got to be THE BEST book I've read this year, and I sure have read a lot of good ones lately. It's amazing! It's one of these books that despite being quite thick in pages, you'll devour in on or two sittings. It's PERFECT, from beginning to the end in every possible aspect.

The story might seem complex at first, with many characters and their stories overlapping, but once you get

Imagine a warm and welcoming tea shop. A place that sells delicious home-made cakes and scones and wonderfully flavoured teas and coffee. Imagine that the tea shop is also a literary-themed gift shop - full of wonderful fripperies that you just have to buy .... a handbag created from a copy of Pride & Prejudice; a set of Bronte themed postcards; china mugs featuring Dickens characters and paperclips in the shape of Jane Austen's profile. Imagine then that the customers of this tea shop like ...more

OK, so this is "Chick Lit", but it wasn't light and fluffy romantic stuff. And I'm not ashamed to say that I enjoyed reading it! On the contrary, it was just what the doctor ordered: heart-warming, with really lovable, believable characters and a good story of friendship. I recommend this to any of my friends who need a short rest from dark and gritty crime thrillers ;-)

Every time Milly Johnson releases a new book, I'm like a small child at Christmas - I can't contain myself or think of anything else until I've opened it up and devoured it. It's getting quite difficult now to say anything new about her books - I reviewed It's Raining Men on my blog last year, and several others on Goodreads before that, and never make any secret of the fact that I'm an unashamed fan and that, for me, she can do no wrong.

This book has everything we've come to expect - the big

This book was an absolute joy to read, I totally and utterly loved it right from page one. Leni’s teashop “The Teashop on the Corner” is the sort of tea shop anyone would love to have on their doorstep. Scrumptious cakes and coffee, surrounded by gorgeous items of literary based stationery to buy with a clientele who like nothing better than to have a good literary debate.

Leni’s customers all have something in common. They are all at crossroads in their lives and need someone for advice, support

Having just this minute finished reading The Teashop on the Corner by Milly Johnson, I am so sad to have to leave the wonderful group of characters behind but also I am still buzzing at what an incredible read this was.

The gorgeous Tea Shop on the Corner in Spring Hill Square has recently been opened by the lovely Leni Merryman, her dream of owning her own tea shop that also specialises in rare quirky literary gifts and stationary has finally come true but she could never have imagined that her

This was such a charming little book. I'd never read anything by and never heard of Milly Johnson before, so I didn't know what to expect. I assumed it would be a light and fluffy romance. It was much more than that: yes it is a romance, but it also has some dramatic elements to it. Even though there are some happy endings, they're not cheesy at all; they're quite realistic. And not everyone is fortunate to get a 'happily ever after' ending. The book totally reminds me of the movie Love Actually ...more

I think I have never before struggled so much to write a review. Here the reason is very simple: this story was about normal people, about friendship and forgiveness and it was just beautiful. And here my review could end because I guess I can never in a million years do this book a justice with my words. But I'll try anyway.
I have finished reading it a few weeks ago but the thoughts and feelings are still bouncing around in my head and I really have problems to knock a proper sentence about my

I absolutely LOVED 'The Teashop on the Corner' by Milly Johnson. If I could have rated it higher than five stars, I most definitely would.
It was beautifully written, with a refreshing mix of truly believable characters, each one brought to life in my mind by Milly's excellent characterization.
I laughed out loud many times, her humour is superb. I also shed a few tears.
Just perfect!

“Where friendship blossoms, can love flower...?”
Oh my goodness another smashing read by Milly Johnson!
Absolutely love the characters the whole essence of love! I blubbed and laughed through this emotional roller coaster of a ride!
Thank goodness for the world that is Milly with her ever lovely ladies, rotten scoundrels made good and those fellas that race in on their steeds to save the damsel!

Milly Johnson at her best...this book makes you laugh, cry, scream and everything in between. The characters are so lovingly brought to life in this tale of love, loss and friendship.

Warning you will need tissues...

As always, I couldn't give a Milly Johnson book less than 5 stars. And this one in particular definitely pulls at your heartstrings. I picked it up from a charity shop and I'm so glad that I did! I've loved all of Milly's novels and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this one - the choice of what to read next was between three of her novels so I will be reading those other two soon and reviewing! So watch this space!

Good. Loved all the characters and how they interacted with each other. Also this cover is deceiving as you expect it to be nice and cosy but it is a devastating and heartbreaking story inside.

I love love loved this book & it has entered my list of favourites ever. I loved the plots, the characters & the entire sentiment of the book.
I so want my own little Teashop On the Corner where I can meet like minded people & debate books. Milly Johnson has left me wanting to reread some Classics & try some I've never read before
The book was filled with humour and had me laughing out loud right from the very first chapter. It also explored so many different emotional topics from

3.5 stars with 4 star potential. Loved this book! Many thanks to Agi and Joanne for introducing me to this fabulous author. Milly Johnson writes with humor, warmth, and a good helping of snarky. This was the third book I’ve read by her. It was more serious in some ways than “Here Come the Girls” and “The Birds and the Bees” but still had lots of lovable characters, great storylines, and happy endings.

Upgraded to 4 stars after a second read. I just LOVE Milly Johnson’s books!

It's never too late to have a happy ending - HARVEY HOYLAND

I love love love and have enjoyed this book very very much. I think I have made the right decision to read this book in my own time, not rushing towards the ending of the book. I felt all sort of emotions throughout the book - I cried a little, felt furious and angry, my heart fluttered too and I giggled and chuckled. All sorts!!!

Teashop On The Corner was about a literary themed teashop e.g. Thomas Hardy Tuesday, Brontë Sisters Tuesday,

Now I read this book purely because one of the loveliest people I know asked me to, I did not go in with high expectations.

This book was beautiful! Yes I saw every 'twist' coming, so the book was predictable but it was also cosy and a joy to read. The characters were so life affirming and I cared so deeply about them that even though I knew what would happen to them I had to read to make sure they got the happy endings they deserved. I was so invested that I shed many a tear. If you want to read

Admittedly it took me a few chapters to get into this book.....there are a lot of different character stories that cross path in the teashop, and I found it a little bitty at the start. Once I was hooked I couldn't put it down - read the last 200 pages in one sitting!! Heart-warming and uplifting book. Highly recommend it.

Wow. That's the only word I can think to use to start this review. I started this book a bit apprehensively, would I enjoy it? It seemed like it might contain too many characters and I wondered if I would struggle with it. However fellow bloggers love Milly's books so I started it. Later that same night I had read 200 pages. A few hours ago I picked up my Kindle and have just finished the book at 1am. At the time of

Review originally posted to my blog:

The moral of this novel is: when life gives you lemons, you should make a delicious lemon drizzle cake to cheer yourself up. As we meet the main characters, they are all at a low point in their lives and are struggling to find any joy in it. Yet as if by magic - or it may very well be the alluring smell of a freshly baked pie - over the course of several days they all wander into the new teashop in Spring Hill Square for
