TWW’s Book Review: Tea with Emma (The Teacup Novellas, book 1) by Diane Moody

Since
I have never read Jane Austen, I have no preconceived notions about a
story that references this book. However, the premise is intriguing.
Inspired by teacups, the book is written rather cleverly. I won’t give
it away, but will say that it is an integral part of the story.
Two
friends travel to England to do a tour of Jane Austen, and return home
to Texas where one of them, Maddie decides she wants to open an
English Tea Room. But first she has to get  past the cranky Englishman
who they cross paths with on the way home and Maddie’s grandmother.

The
snarky attitude of Maddie’s friend during the airport scene was
hilarious, and truthfully, the Englishman got what he deserved. Read
it…you’ll love it.

Although
the character of Maddie seems somewhat oblivious of her non-ability to
be a “matchmaker”, her sincerity is definitely there. She means well,
but seriously can’t help herself. I almost wanted to reach into the
book and shake her. But since I couldn’t, I just had to read on and you
will too. Rating:
