The Seafront Tea Room is the sort of pleasant, easy-going read I have come to expect from Vanessa Greene. It follows the same basic format as The Vintage Teacup Club, also by Vanessa Greene, in which three women come together and discover love, strength, and friendship as they search for a special tea-themed treasure. In this case, the main characters: Charlie, Kat, and Seraphine are on a quest to discover wonderful little tearooms to feature in Charlie’s magazine. Along the way, the ladies face challenges and obstacles, custody issues, fall-out from an adoption, trouble balancing work and romance, and a fear of coming out to family, but make it through with the help of their new friends.
While I thought that the author skimmed through the resolution to many of the problems the ladies faced, The Seafront Tea Room, was as warm and relaxing as a hot cup of tea and a great read for when you want something light and feel-good.
