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

The Teashop on the Corner has an endearing cast of main characters. Real people you feel you know and want to be friends with.

Will has worked hard to build his business to the level where he and his wife can afford a life of luxury only to loose it all after a bad investment.
Molly, who only ever wanted to find her prince, feels that life has si

4 estrellas y media.
Es la primera novela que leo de Milly Johnson y me ha gustado mucho la sensibilidad con la que describe los personajes y el finísimo sentido del humor con el que relata escenas dramáticas.
"El café de los corazones solitarios" es una novela coral, en mi oponión hay dos historias principales y dos (o tres, según se mire) historias secundarias y el hilo que las une con elegancia es el café del título, que casi tiene vida propia. Al principio me costó un poco entrar en la histor

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 in

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

La verdad es que estoy alucinada como escribe esta autora es el segundo libro que leo de ella y sigo pensando en leerme todas sus entregas. Escribe de una manera maravillosa.. Milly tiene una pluma excepcional, quedas enganchada a sus páginas desde el primer capítulo, leerla es puro gustazo, Milly desborda magia en cada palabra, te transporta a sus escenarios y los sientes y vives junto con sus adorables personajes. Es un libro sencillo pero hermoso aunque en ciertas partes me estanq

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 ;-)

Me ha encantado, la verdad, y me da mucha rabia no haberlo podido disfrutar del tirón, pero aún así, me llevo una sensación muy dulce con este libro, con lo bonito de cada historia, y ante todo, con la manera tan entrañable de escribir de la autora. Sin duda, todas las recomendaciones para que lo leyera eran acertadas ❤

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 c

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

Me embriaga un gran gozo cuando acabo un libro que me ha tenido prendada durante toda la lectura. Sobre todo cuando descubro un nuevo autor que tal vez sea famoso, por qué no, pero del que yo no había leído nada hasta el momento.
Esta novela encierra muchas historias y mensajes en sus páginas. Milly tiene una forma de narrar dinámica y amena, que te hace querer saber más y no poder despegarte de la pantalla (o páginas).
Los personajes son entrañables, finamente y cuidadosamente perfilados los vam

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!

De verdad este libro fue toda una aventura de leer, la autora logra retratar lo cruda que puede ser la vida de la mejor manera posible. El hecho de que hubiera tantos personajes lo hizo una lectura rápida e increíble.

“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!

El hecho de que este contada de varios puntos de vista me gusta, hace que la lectura sea un visto y no visto, se lee enseguida.
Otra cosas que me ha gustado mucho es el que todos los personajes cuenten con una edad ya adulta.
Un libro que recomiendo .

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.

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!

Esta autora nunca decepciona. Me encantan todos los libros que he leído de ella y este no ha sido la excepción. De hecho, a pesar de lo largo que es, se me ha hecho corto. Me hubiera encantado seguir acompañando a estos personajes tras todos los cambios que sufren sus vidas a lo largo de la novela, y me ha encantado, además, que hubiera tantos personajes y que fuesen todos tan diferentes entre sí, porque así se complementan y forman un puzle en el que todos tienen su lugar.

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

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.
