The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane

Life in Icicle Falls, #5

I liked this story of sisters Samantha, Cecily and Bailey.

We see them come together in the very close community of Icicle Falls. This author really gives the reader something to think about. She not only shows the importance of family but also shows the parts of hopes and dreams. This will definitely be a story that when you think you have it all figured the author manages to throw you a twist that will have you shaking your head and saying I didn't see that coming! Icicle Falls is a small town where it seemed like 'everyone is in everyone else business. In this fifth installment be ready for lots of drama and issues with self-esteem especially from one of the sisters. Readers are in for small town relationships.

Bailey returns home to wallow in self-pity. A game of cat and mouse ensues with a love triangle and a partnership. What is up with Bailey and Cecily?

I found all of the characters for the most part well developed, colorful, and humorous at times. The friendships were realistic and it was so very believable.

Will these sisters be able to make up and not let anyone come between them?

I found the story very intriguing as well as entertaining. It will keep your attention all the way to the happy ending.

At the end of the novel you will be given some useful recipes that sounded good to me. Check out the Lavender Cake & Frosting and the Lavender Honey. These recipes definitely give this novel a nice addition.

Book Blurb for The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane

When it comes to men, sisters don't share! 

After a fake food poisoning incident in L.A., Bailey Sterling's dreams of becoming a caterer to the stars collapse faster than a soufflé. Now Bailey's face is in all the gossip rags and her business is in ruins. But the Sterling women close ranks and bring her back to Icicle Falls, where she'll stay with her sister Cecily.

All goes well between the sisters until Bailey comes up with a new business idea—a tea shop on a charming street called Lavender Lane. She's going into partnership with Todd Black, who—it turns out—is the man Cecily's started dating. It looks to Cecily as if there's more than tea brewing in that cute little shop. And she's not pleased.

Wait! Isn't Cecily seeing Luke Goodman? He's a widower with an adorable little girl, and yes, Cecily does care about him. But Todd's the one who sends her zing-o-meter off the charts. So now what? Should you have to choose between your sister and the man you love (or think you love)?
