Rosie's Traveling Tea Shop by Rebecca Raisin Review

Rosie's Traveling Tea Shop

A swanky job as a Michelin-Starred Sous Chef, a loving husband and future children scheduled for exactly January 2021.

That’s until she comes home one day to find her husband’s pre-packed bag and a confession that he's had an affair.

Heartbroken and devastated, Rosie drowns her sorrows in a glass (or three) of wine, only to discover the following morning that she has spontaneously invested in a bright pink campervan to facilitate her grand plans to travel the country.

Now, Rosie is about to embark on the trip of a lifetime, and the chance to change her life! With Poppy, her new-found travelling tea shop in tow, nothing could go wrong, could it…?

Wow, what a book! I honestly wasn’t sure how I would feel about this story as firstly because Rebecca Raisin is a new to me author and secondly I am totally addicted to all those van life vlogs on YouTube, plus trying to explain all the cramp spaces inside the van! But then I decided I was over thinking it, and just to jump right in. 

The story of Rosie being cheated on, getting drunk then finding the van honestly spoke to me! I did enjoy the way the author used many of the pitfalls in modern day life, from just making friends to finding romance, and with that the book felt fresh, and relevant, as most authors ignore these drastic life changes in just the past 5 years, from tiny homes, van life, self-sustaining lifestyles on the rise, I applaud this author for keeping everything present. 

The plot and the characters were awesome, and having Poppy's character as her new friend was simply perfect. I found there was only one little flaw in this book of dreams of mine, and that was the story didn't quite flow as smoothly as I would have liked, other than that the book was great. 

I give Rosie's Travelling Tea Shop 4 stars.
