The Little Teashop of Lost and Found

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 final

I absolutely loved The Little tea shop of lost and found.
It took me a few chapters to fully appreciate the style of writing as I couldn't work out who was writing/narrating the short paragraphs written in italic. But once I realised it was Alice's birth mum then it all made sense.

Trisha takes you on a journey of discovery and mystery.

Alice has had a rough start in life. She is abandoned on the moors just a few hours old. Luckily for her she's found just in time and becomes adopted.

I really struggled to get into this book until after chapter 6. The storyline then picked up for a while but I found it quite predictable. The parts which were Alice's fairytale novels I found unnecessary and felt like they were just padding out the number of words required for the overall novel. How someone would find time to write a novel, start up a new business from scratch in an area they have little knowledge of and have time to help the locals set up their business as well - plus a decent ...more

Lovely book. Enjoyed the characters very much. The Giddings were such a lovely family. One everyone would long to be part of. Great Alice got her happy ever after. The book did lose a star because i found all the fairystory part boring and flicked past it. i understand the girl was writing a book, but just didnt feel the need for that to go on as much as it did. But over all really enjoyed this one

I can't do it anymore. I tried y'all but this book has no soul or depth.

The protagonist in this book is talented at everything and has no flaws. Everybody in this big mean world has betrayed her despite her doing nothing wrong ever. She writes books, paints, cooks, renovates, runs a teashop, and is otherwise completely unharmed from all her tragedy in life. She's beautiful and tall and men fall about her in endless swoons.

And she is mopey and too optimistic and nothing is going wrong.

I've been in a bit of a book funk recently and this was the perfect change that I needed. Yorkshire is dear to my heart, especially Haworth, so I spent most of the book grinning at the descriptions of the delightful weather!

The story had me hooked immediately, I loved Alice and the wonderful characters that peppered the chapters. The magic of Trisha Ashley's books is that she immerses you completely in the story and makes the characters so real.

The book suffers from a severe case of telling the reader rather than showing. The chapter's prior to Alice's arrival in Yorkshire could have been consolidated into one. The second narrative voice was poorly done. The fairy story even worse. Dire.

Alice is adopted. When her father dies Alice feels completely alone in the world. She only discovers she was a foundling after his death, when her cold stepmother lets her know in the most cruel way. Alice doesn't know where she belongs, but she does know it isn't with her nasty stepmother, which is why she leaves her hometown behind. She takes her good childhood memories with her and finds comfort in baking, writing and drawing.

When Alice's fiancé dies she has to start all over again. She has s

The Little Teashop of Lost and Found follows the story of Alice Rose a woman who hasn’t had the kindest start to life. Abandoned on the Yorkshire moors as a baby she’s adopted by a wonderful father only for him to pass away. So when her fiancé is also killed in an accident at work distraught Alice decides to use the money left to her in his will to start over in the village where she was found.

Too many moments that I found boring and predictable. Why the author felt the need for over 400 pages to describe getting a cafe up and running is beyond me. Disappointed with this one, having heard great things about the author.

I really enjoyed The Little Teashop of Lost and Found.

The main character that is Alice, shes had a very unsettled life as she was found in the moors abandoned by her birth mother, then her adoptive father passes away and after travelling many places she just doesnt seem to feel like she belongs anywhere.

After her Fiance sadly dies in an accident she buys a cafe in her birth town Hadworth. She arrives to find that the cafe she had bought wasnt as described and takes a lot of work to refurbish it

Another total delight from one of my favourite authors! I had already pre-ordered this one months ago but when I had a chance to get the ARC from NetGalley, I hit the request button at lightening speed.

Alice was abandoned as a baby on the Moors about Haworth. After a few traumatic life events including the loss of her fiancé, she decides to return to the scene and buys a cafe without seeing it. Of course it is a dump and of course the shop opposite is run by a handsome but aloof antiques expert.

This book nearly killed me! I have mild OCD and this is the only reason I finished it! It felt like I was watching the paint in this CAFE dry..... if I read the word “fat Rascal” once more I would have screamed! This book was literally 400 pages of renovation, predictable relationships and a pathetic attempt at a desertion plot! I think it takes real effort to write something with so little substance and so incredibly boring! Waste of time!!!!

My relationship with Trisha Ashley's books is very rocky - I seem to either love her books to bits or I can't get into them. However, there is something so very special and unique in her writing that makes me always impatiently waiting for her every new release and I - really - count down the days to the publication days, wanting to see what she has in store for us this time and what an exceptional story is it going to be. I think that not only is the new "The Little Teashop of Lost and Found" o

4.5 stars

After a particularly dark and disturbing thriller, this book was just what the doctor ordered, though don’t let the cover fool you – it’s not all froth and lightness, it does have its serious moments.

The story revolves around Alice, whose life story reads pretty much like the dark edged fairy stories she writes. Left for abandoned on the moors, but luckily found by a passing farmer, she was adopted into a home that gave her a loving father but a wicked step-mother. When her father dies,

There are two (well three really) rather distinct stories within The Little Teashop of Lost and Found. The main focus of the whole book is Alice Rose, who is moving to Haworth, the area of west Yorkshire where she was found abandoned as a newborn. She went on to have a loving adoptive father, who spun her fairytales, and a wicked adoptive mother. After trying to find somewhere in the country where she feels she belongs, she has bought a cafe and home sight unseen in Haworth to try and put down r ...more

Alice was abandoned as a tiny baby but was found in time and adopted. Her father was a lovely man but when he dies her adopted mother makes it very plain that she never wanted her in the first place. Running away Alice gets taken in by Edie in Cornwall who looks after her and teaches her to bake.

When Alice leaves Edie she goes to Scotland where she falls in love but her fiancé dies in an accident - how much bad luck can one person have! - but he leaves her an insurance policy and she decides its

Aromas de Cor (Helena Rodrigues)
Aquele tipo de romance doce e meloso, sim estou a empregar as duas palavras! Que nos leva a recuar ao tempos de Brontë e a toda a vida na charneca. Um livro que nos fala de uma vida idílica, que todos gostariam de experimentar! Um mistério, uma família e uma trama cheia de peripécias!

risha Ashley não sendo uma das minhas autoras de eleição acaba por ser uma daquelas autoras que mais cedo ou mais tarde acabo por ler os seus livros. Costumam ser histórias mais ou menos leves, próprias para esta época. (as capas em si mesmas e os títulos indiciam esta época natalícia).
Mas a verdade é que este Chá e corações partidos me prendeu a atenção desde o início. Não se trata, de todo, de uma história de encantar, embora tenha um final feliz. É um livro de descoberta de si mesmo e das sua

I’ve been a huge Trisha Ashley fan for many years and have read most of her previous books with my favourites being her Christmas novels which just fill me with festive joy. The Little Teashop of Lost and Found is her newest release and is probably my favourite of her non-Christmas releases.
