It's a big day for Charlie Bell - the grand reopening of her Aunt Pansy's long-closed tea rooms in Tremevissey, a quaint Cornish seaside resort. But not everyone is happy for Charlie. The locals say the tea rooms are cursed. For Pansy was cruelly jilted by her lover, and walked out into the ocean, never to return.

Charlie dismisses the 'curse' as superstitious nonsense, but by the end of the first day, her world is in tatters, and she's not even sure the tea rooms can open again.

Then in walks a rugged, taciturn man with a sexy smile and everything he owns on his back, looking for a summer job . . .

Is Gideon Petherick an angel in disguise? Or is history about to repeat itself?

Without a doubt this is my favourite of Beth Good's Oddest Little books. I was completely hooked from start to finish and for s short novella, it certainly has a lot packed into it. 

There are secrets to be uncovered,  a curse to deal with, tea rooms, a lovely Cornish setting, a very handsome man,  and a whole lot more beside. 

It is definitely a book featuring a tea shop, and its owner Charlie Bell is trying her best to make it work for her long deceased Aunt Pansy.   However the grand re-opening isn't exactly smooth and the serious of events at it that go wrong are hilarious. 

I am a huge fan of Beth Good's novellas, and this would be an excellent introduction to them and the author for anyone.  Its a quick compelling story, that I  didn't want to end.  A really enjoyable experience. 

Thanks to Beth Good for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
