My thoughts: I certainly enjoyed this sweet, delightful story that started in poverty and ended in a lovely romance in a new city.. When Lilly goes to claim her inheritance she finds she has inherited a house full of beautiful teacups from her Aunt and enough money for upkeep and a comfortable life. Her inheritance gets her thrown into some situations that had me laughing and wondering just how she was going to explain her way out of them. I enjoyed this novella and would certainly recommend it for a sweet romantic afternoon read!
About the book: Almost destitute, Lilly has run out of hope when she inherits her great-aunt’s home — but it’s not the Tea Shop that a handsome young gentleman thinks it is. Lilly’s inherited house is crammed full of tea cups. Theo, a Soo Locks engineer, visits frequently in the hopes he will find the perfect antique teacup for his mother and is charmed by the lovely ‘Shoppe owner.’ Lilly can’t turn the bachelor away when he persistently peruses her aunt’s collection, which she’s trying to pack up and remove from the house. Is the man only interested in the teacups, or in her? When Theo begins referring people to Lilly, and the genuine Tea Shoppe owner sets the police on Lilly for her lack of a business license, sparks fly!
