This was such a lovely read. I enjoyed the setting and the characters and the mention of the delightful baking. I can’t wait to try and make the recipe at the end of the book- it sounds divine!
Ellie answers an advert to lease a teashop at Claverham Castle. Although she hasn’t got any experience of running her own catering business, she manages to persuade the owners that she will be very successful. I loved her initial plans for the teashop and how plans developed over the year. We share in her worries and her successes , and her working relationship with her staff.

Joe adds a love interest that they both try to resist initially- but they are drawn together. I loved their dates and would love to live somewhere with the beach and the countryside so close and to live in an old castle!
