Another one of cozy romance books I just finished–Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop by Rebecca Raisin
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 pre-packed 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 new-found 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.

Rebecca aims to write characters you can see yourself being friends with. People with big hearts who care about relationships, and most importantly believe in true love.
Rosie Lewis is a Michelin Star chef working in a fancy restaurant in London. She seemed to be having plans with the thought of having a baby. But then her husband Callum admits of having an affair with another woman and soon she is getting a divorce.
And one day, in a drunk stupor, she orders a van through her credit card that has a kitchen. She names her van Poppy and she quits her job, moves out of London and sets off to an adventure. While on adventure, she meets Aria, who is selling romantic novels, Max a former U.S. soldier selling gluten free product and through online she meets Ollie. This is a story filled with adventure, laugh and emotions.
Here are the things I like about the book
- The story was funny in some ways and so gives the reader some good laugh.
- I also like how the friendship between Rosie and Aria developed through the book, supporting each other during hard times.
- I actually like the plot of the story–doing business and travelling around the country and selling items at some sort of festival – I thought I really like the concept of the book.
- I like how romance blossomed between Max and Rosie though Rosie was whiny about it at first.
- For people who enjoy a cozy, warm and funny and quick romantic novel, you will definitely love this book.
Now here are the things I didn’t like about the book
- I didn’t really much like the character Rosie much– I felt she was too naive and also a bit whiny as I said earlier.
- Some parts of the story was boring
Overall, this is a good, cozy novel and a quick read. Worth four stars!
