Tilly’s Tuscan TeashopWelcome to Tilly’s Tuscan Teashop, the first book in a brand new series from the author of the Hummingbird Hotel and the Cornish Confetti Agency series.
When photographer Natalie Nicholson’s beach hut studio – and everything she’s spent the last two years working on – is destroyed in a fire, she doesn’t think things can get any worse. Until she sees her boyfriend Josh Clarke on Instagram frolicking on a palm-fringed Balinese beach with a fellow cabin crew member.
Devastated and heartbroken, she heads to Italy to help out at her sister’s English teashop in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, where she encounters sun-dappled hilltop villages with attractive terracotta bell towers, cobbled piazzas housing world-famous art and architecture, and a national fixation with getting from A to B as quickly as possible whether in a glamourous Ferrari, a scarlet Vespa, or a snail-like ape.
With handsome local filmmaker-cum-waiter Matteo Ferretti on hand to guide her, can Tilly learn to ditch her workaholic ways and embrace the Italian pursuit of la dolce vita? Or will she miss out on her chance at a happy-ever-after?
Author Bio – Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.
When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

Today I’m reviewing another great book by Daisy James where we are being taken to the sunny Tuscany. Which is perfect for this cold and rainy weather here in Northern Germany.
In the book, we are following our main character Tilly who decides to go to Italy to help out her sister. After a problem or two happens back at home. She is suddenly pulled into a world of colour and living your life to the fullest (and enjoying it). It is amazing to follow her on the journey as she grows as a person and realises what she really enjoys doing. And the journey she made for herself.. Inspiring! Not only is Tilly a great character, but all the other characters that we meet are also so different in their own ways.
Not only are we able to enjoy the characters but we are also able to enjoy teas and cakes in the English teashop in the middle of Tuscan’s village. Which, honestly, made me just make unendless cups of tea while I was reading. Where do I find a teashop like this?!
If you need some warmth for your soul, pick up this book as it is first in the new series by Daisy. The romance keeps you on your toes, the characters make you want befriend them and Daisy’s writing is brilliant as always.
