When Ellie Hall lands her dream job running the little teashop in the beautiful but crumbling Claverham Castle, it’s the perfect escape from her humdrum job in the city. Life is definitely on the rise as Ellie replaces spreadsheets for scones, and continues her Nanna’s brilliant baking legacy.

When Lord Henry, the stick-in-the-mud owner, threatens to burst her baking bubble with his old-fashioned ways, Ellie wonders if she might have bitten off more than she can chew. But cupcake by cupcake she wins the locals over, including teashop stalwart, Doris, and Ellie’s showstopping bakes look set to go down in castle history!

Now all that’s missing in Ellie’s life is a slice of romance – can Joe, the brooding estate manager, be the one to put the cherry on the top of Ellie’s dream?

My Review

Ellie decides she needs a change of scenery and on a whim applies for a job in a castle to run a teashop in Claverham Castle. She has no experience running a business, but knows she is an awesome baker and it’s not long before it looks like the dreams her Nanna encouraged are coming true. But with distractions from Lord Henry, who is rather excentric and Joe, who is rather dreamy, she wonders if her newfound venture could be a success?  This is a very dreamy story set in a castle no less, with an ambitious Ellie and Joe who have their secrets, but a mutual attraction they cannot deny. There is a surprising secret towards the end, but for the most part this was a light, fun read.
