So I was walking along and listening to this book on my phone using earphones (as one does) and I couldn't help myself but laugh out loud! That would be my biggest complaint about this book because I do not fancy getting stared at like I'm a few sandwiches short of a picnic. But there was no avoiding it.
Rich Amooi has crafted a delightfully funny, superbly colourful romance with quirky characters. It has all the robustness of rich arabica coffee and the sweetness of freshly baked scones. It is a shorter book, which makes it fast paced and thoroughly entertaining. Greg Tremblay gives a well matched performance, highlighting the subtle nuances of the slightly crazy characters in slightly bizarre circumstances. Fantastic!
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
"Adorable, Funny and Entertaining!"
I loved this story! It was fun to listen too and had me laughing out loud. Jack and Susie are opposites. Jack's passion is his coffee shop, Susie's passion is her tea and scones. These two become competitors when Susie opens a shop right next to Jack. When Jack starts to lose sales, he does a few promotions that have comical results. Jack and Susie both volunteer to help with the downtown festival, and end up working and getting to know each other better. Their bitter feelings soon turns into attraction and they go on a few dates, but Jack's made a mistake that could cost Susie her tea shop. The secondary characters were great. Harvey was hilarious, and I really liked Jack's dog, who didn't like women with the exception of Susie.
Greg Tremblay did a great job with the narration. He really brought the story and characters to life.

"Refreshingly Light-Hearted Romantic Comedy!"
Rich Amooi delivers a well written story with a great pace, and plot that's sweet, funny and will leave listener with a feel good feeling. I liked the story wasn't filled with a lot of unnecessary mental dialogue dragging it out. It had a great pace, and transitioned smoothly from scene to scene.
The main characters, as well as the secondary characters were great! Each had their own unique personality, even the little Chihuahua who didn't like women.
Greg Tremblay's performance was awesome! He did a great job on the characters and each had their own distinguishable voice.
A clean, light-hearted romance that doesn't leave you emotionally drained. Well worth the time. I was voluntarily provided this free review audiobook copy by the author, narrator, or publisher.

"A Delightful Rom-Com"
It’s Official! Anytime I need a pick me up, forget about Xanax, I’m listening to a Rich Amooi novel, his stories never fail to put a smile on my face. This light-hearted rom-com is just what the doctor ordered.
Susie McKenna is the queen of scones and she opens her quaint little tea shop right next door to Jack Robbins coffee house! Her timing couldn’t be any worse, at least not from where Jack’s standing, he’s close to sealing a deal to take his coffee house brand to the next level, but falling sale due to that pesky little tea shop threatens to throw a monkey wrench into his plans!
Hilarity ensues as Jack and Susie compete to make a living and fight the growing attraction they feel towards each other.
Greg Tremblay narrates this quick listen and his voice is perfect for this type of story, his pacing is flawless, and his delivery definitely helped increase the comedy factor. The audio quality of this book, which clocks in at just under 4 1/2 hours, is excellent.
"Coffee, Tea or Me"
Coffee, Tea or Me

Jack the coffee shop owner gets a new neighbor, Susie the tea and scone lady................and competition. There are lots of hilarious twists and turns as they get to know each other. Will Jack expand his business by franchising, will Susie make a go of it, will a romance develop? A very well crafted story. I enjoy listening to this author's works.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Greg Tremblay kept me entertained.

"Fun and Entertaining"
This was just an all around fun, light-hearted and cute story. Yes, you could say it is a cheesy romantic story, but it's a really good, fun and entertaining cheesy romantic story. Perfect for those times you want a good story without all the major angst.
The story was well written and flowed smoothly.
Very enjoyable story with a great cast of likable characters. The relationship between Jack and Susie felt natural and believable not rushed/forced.
Rich Amooi is a new author to me. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and will be listening to more of his books in the future.
This is the first time I have listened to Greg Tremblay narrate an audiobook. He did a great job. Nice voice. Perfect voice for this story. Easy to listen to. Clearly spoken with nice even pace. Really good character voices. He was able to bring the characters and the story to life. Very enjoyable
