The Tea Room on the Bay - Rachel Burton || Blog Tour


It's time for Ellie to return home and rediscover the past she left behind...

After a tough break-up, Ellie returns to the only place she's ever really felt at home – the coastal town of Sanderson Bay. A year later, she's living her dream, brewing delicious artisan teas and selling them at her very own café. And when the mysterious and brooding Ben walks into her tearoom, Ellie finally dares to dream of true love.
But then her ex shows up in the Bay, and just as Ellie discovers some tragic truths about her family's past, she learns Ben might be hiding an unwelcome secret of his own...

Can Ellie let go of her past and brave a future with Ben?

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.
What a simply lovely warming cosy read. Ellie has fled her current home after a breakup to return to the coastal town of Sanderson Bay where she spent most of her time growing up. Its not long before she is living the life she dreamed off, running her own little teashop, belonging to the community and not crying from heartbreak anymore. One day a dark and brooding stranger walks into the tea room, and despite claiming to be a coffee drinker. Ellie can sense the tea he needs and is drawn to him. Something about this stranger is making her believe love might be out there for her. However, throw in an ex who has returned and is throwing her life into turmoil and discovering Ben isnt as he seems and you have tension and drama to keep the pages turning.

I really really enjoyed this, it was just a great book to read - it made me feel warm and cosy, it warmed my heart in places but kept me reading with just enough drama. Although, very early on i figured alot out - it didn't take from the enjoyment because i really enjoyed seeing how it all panned out and came to a head. The characters were lovely and fiercely protective of each other. You could really sense the bonds of the community from the very first pages. A great winter read to get you feeling all snug and warm.
