Almost destitute, Lilly has run out of hope when she inherits her great-aunt’s home -- but it’s not the Tea Shop that a handsome young gentleman thinks it is. Lilly’s inherited house is crammed full of tea cups. Theo, a Soo Locks engineer, visits frequently in the hopes he will find the perfect antique teacup for his mother and is charmed by the lovely 'Shoppe owner.’ Lilly can’t turn the bachelor away when he persistently peruses her aunt’s collection, which she’s trying to pack up and remove from the house. Is the man only interested in the teacups, or in her? When Theo begins referring people to Lilly, and the genuine Tea Shoppe owner sets the police on Lilly for her lack of a business license, sparks fly!
The Tea Shop Folly by Carrie Fancett Pagels is a novella with heart. I have enjoyed previous novellas by author Pagels and she certainly knows how to tell a complete story packed in just a few pages without the readers feeling like we are missing something. With a heroine who has lost hope and a hero who has made assumptions that are not true, we are given a lighthearted story about two wayward souls finding love and bringing kindness and goodness to their families. I look forward to more of this author’s work, especially her full length novels.
I received this book for free from The Book Club Network and the opinions and views expressed are my own honest ones.
