As a new Englander and a life time resident of Connecticut I really enjoyed this book. I have visited all the places mentioned in the book and I am familiar with their food picks! I felt like I was on a road trip with Laurie! I really liked the ending and it reminded me of all the memories I share with my siblings of my dad. There is nothing that a fall afternoon in Connecticut can't fix. Especially as you drink a nice warm tea and eat a locally grown and baked piece of pumpkin pie. I am giving this book a 5/5.
Love isn't always a piece of cake...
Laurie Davis has always followed her passion. After escaping family drama to start a new life in New York City, she’s up for whatever challenges life brings. So when an opportunity arises for her to use her travel industry expertise and serve as an assistant and tour guide for her idol, Pamela Lambert-Leigh, star of television’s Tea-Time with Pamela, she jumps at the chance.
But Laurie’s exciting adventure ends up entailing a lot more than scouting locations for the cake queen’s new cookbook when Pamela’s sassy mother and sulky, rebellious daughter tag along for the trip. As they cruise around bakeries in New England trading local delights like Red Velvet Cake and Whoopie Pies for British specialties such as Victoria Sponge and Bakewell Tarts, more secrets than recipes are revealed.
Now, in between rediscovering romance, learning to forgive family, and finding the best dessert on the East Coast, Laurie, Pamela, and the gang might find there’s nothing a nice cup of tea, a sweet treat, and a little bit of friendship can’t heal
