Summary

The trip of a lifetime!

Rosie Lewis has her life together.

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 prepacked 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 newfound travelling tea shop in tow, nothing could go wrong, could it?

A laugh-out-loud novel of love, friendship and adventure! Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin.

Rosie's travelling teashop

Easy going story. Bit predictable but still enjoyable. Light summer read. He worst narrator I have every heard. Hope to avoid this narrator completely in the future. Put emphasis on the wrong part of syllables and completely messed up endings of sentences. Also said @HHHHh' aspirated letter H. Truly awful narrative.

Don’t write about a festival you’ve never been too.

Not great I listen to audio books when I can’t sleep so I’m happy with a bit of fluff but this is next level. It got me to sleep anyway.

The writer had clearly never been to the fringe festival in Edinburgh so that whole chapter was dreadful.

Shout

Why does this reader, Charlie Sanderson, make all the characters shout everything in a shrill grating voice? It’s shame because most of the prose is well delivered, but this just highlights the alarm inducing shrieks in every dialogue. The story is a lovely light bit of escapism, but sadly ruined by such an un-relaxing narration

Made me smile

Flawed in many ways but made me smile anyway. The narration is very good. The story is full of clichés and current pop culture sometimes clumsily written, regardless it was a lively bit of escapism in a year where real escape isn't possible

An ok book. Nothing too memorable.

Just trundled on. It didn't have me rushing to listen to it. First time I've listened to the narrator, who did a good job.

Heartwarming

A fantastic book, the first of what I hope will be a series of, more heartwarming, touching travelling adventures about the characters Rebecca has created. I struggled to fall asleep with this and predict it will be the same for the second in her 'travelling' audio books, which I've never had happen before. Can't wait for the next travelling adventure stories 😊♥️♥️

Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop

Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop. I brought this book on the basis of the reviews. I cannot understand how many people raved over it. I found no substance the story boring. I just cannot finish it.

Takes you away

A really fun book and fun storyline. You get lost in dreaming about what Rosie is doing. It was also great listening to it on audible. The voices and acting added a lot to the story it was very well done

Cute Story

Listened to this hoping for an escape. Rosie and Aria are cute characters and I had some laugh out loud moments. It was a brief, lighthearted experience. Mostly Rosie’s inner thoughts but, not bad. Worth the listen. The ending is a little abrupt, but I didn’t have big expectations going in. Pleasantly predictable.

Fun

The story is very enjoyable. The main character going through a divorce and reinventing herself. she meets interesting characters along the way. The story is a familiar one but Rosies redirection is not.

Cute, cozy, and relatable

While I wouldn’t say that this book has anything really surprising, its characters and storyline are totally believable. I always like the type of plot where someone gives up a stressful and high paying job to leave the big city in search of peace of mind and more important qualities of life.

The narration was fine, even if the male voices were not particularly masculine sounding. The intonation is spot-on and the enunciation very clear. It was still very easy to keep track of who was talking and follow the story.

I would certainly check out other books by this author.

Perfect summer “read”!

I enjoyed every second of this book. Easy to get sucked in but also easy to pick up where you left off. I can see myself in Rosie! I enjoyed the narrator too. Take a chance on this book!

funny food related story

gentle and endearing character, with just the right amount of OCD who plunges into an adventure. Adorable story witha few surprises along the way and made me laugh out loud. Thankfully no obligatory sexscenes that so often detract from this genre. if you want hot and steamy look elsewhere but it you want a delightful entertaining comic romance definitely put this one on your list,.
the narrator was adorable too.
