Review

"The Seafront Tea Rooms" is a fun, light and quick read. 

The narration is simple yet riveting in its own way. The shift in setting of locations undoubtedly helps initiate the backdrop and mood with each chapter. With constant change in places and environment, this book takes you the world of beautiful tea rooms, cafes and destinations.

In connection with tea rooms and cafes, 'The Seafront Tea Rooms" also explores love and friendship between its characters. It is a fast paced and heartwarming story of these three women - Kat, Charlotte and Seraphine. I like the way how they share heart to heart conversations filled with gratitude and heartfelt appreciation.

I particularly liked how author introduces the characters with all their eccentricities and circumstances. However, they deal  with different situations in their life, they get connected in Letty's Seafront Tea Rooms.

It is a simple and heartwarming tale of strangers turned into close friends. The major interaction relating to love, family and hope in these short stories are carried out in an interesting manner. Although, there were no thought provoking surprises in the story. 

Also, if you are someone who is enthusiastic about baking, then you can also try out some amazing recipes mentioned at the end of this book.
