The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane Book Review

I was excited to get to the next book in the series and I picked up The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane (Life in Icicle Falls) (English Edition) by Sheila Roberts.  This is the book that started me reading this whole series because I got it at a book sale with the free coupon from my summer reading!!  I was excited to read this book because it was mine and even more excited to see that there are a bunch of recipes in the back of the book which I now don't have to write down before returning to the library!

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 soufflĂ©. 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)?

I loved this book! It was great to see the dynamic between all the sisters growing into adult relationships.  I don't have any sisters so I am not sure that it would be that smooth but the sisters end up in a fight over a man.  Of course, my thinking was that neither would date him but you have to read the book to find out who wins the heart of the man.  This is a great perspective on characters that we have met through out the series but didn't know very well.  I hope that you you read this book and all the others in the series.  It brings great images of the small town and rural landscape into your head with every description.  I know that you will grow to love the characters as much as I have!!
