Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop
Rosie Lewis has her life together.
A swanky job as a Michelin-Starred Sous Chef, a loving husband and future children scheduled for exactly January 2021.

He accuses her of being predictable and suspects his leaving won't have any effect, whereas it is soon apparent it was the best thing he could have ever done for Rosie.
Rosie is filled with self doubt and it was wonderful to see how she developed over the course of the summer, travelling around various festivals in her brand new ...more

What a lovely story! I don't recall reading a book by Rebecca Raisin but that will certainly change once she releases more books. I really enjoyed this one. The author incorporated delicious desserts and teas while showing us that sometimes change isn't a bad thing. I think any reader who is in need of a pick me up should check out Rosie's Traveling Tea Shop. It's an eye opening novel and filled with some amazing character gr ...more
I usually love books like that, but unfortunately this one just did not lived up to my expectations.
I appreciate the fact that Rosie, the protagonist, did not open a cute cafe/bookshop in Cornwall as it usually happens in those books, but hit the road - that was very refreshing.
Unfortunately the rest of the book fell flat. The characters are bland, they're neither likable nor unlikable, the romance is lukewarm at best.

Rebecca Raisin's book had the same effect on me. The story was simple, oft done before, Rosie's husband has an affair, she buys her traveling tea van and wants to get out of London, and off she goes in the van to Brighton at first where she meets Aria or nearly tries to kill her while parking her van. The entire book is a journey of Rosie finding herself and getting her mojo back al ...more
But despite that I still fell in love with this quirky story, lots of fun & laughs to be had and the characters were a joy to get to know. I knew right from the beginning that there would be more to Ollie than mee ...more

*gives you the side-eye*
Don’t even go there with me - we all know my issues have issues...
I can’t imagine the pain and heartbreak Rosie must have felt to realise that her husband, the man she’d made all these plans with (okay, so who knows how much input he actually had *giggles*), was leaving her, and for another woman no less. Rat-bleep-da-bleep!
Spontaneity? I’ll give you spontaneity!

Rosie, a sous chef in a Michelin starred restaurant, thinks her husband has a fun surprise for her birthday. It's a surprise but definitely no fun as he tells her he's leaving and wants a divorce.
