A delectable tale of love, friendship and cake...Laurie loves a challenge.

Especially if it involves tea-time and travel. So when British baking treasure Pamela Lambert-Leigh needs a guide on a research trip for her new cookbook, she jumps at the chance. The brief: Laurie and Pamela - along with Pamela's sassy mother and stroppy daughter - will board a vintage London bus for a deliciously unusual tour of the USA's East Coast, cruising from New York to Vermont.

Their mission: To trade recipes for home-grown classics like Victoria Sponge and Battenburg for American favourites like Red Velvet Cake and Whoopie Pie. All the women have their secrets and heartaches to heal.

As well cupcakes galore, there's also the chance for romance...But will making Whoopie lead to love?

I don't read much chick lit these days and it's a while since I read any Belinda Jones, but the title of this book lured me in. Laurie is called upon to organise the itinerary of TV baker Pamela Lambert-Leigh's trip around the east coast of America trading English recipes for American ones for her new book. Throw in Pamela's feisty mother, Gracie and Ravenna, her nightmare of a daughter and a red London bus to travel on and Laurie has her hands full.This is such a fun and lively story that it made me remember why I used to like this author's books. I loved the combination of the descriptions of each new place together with the mouth-watering cakes and sweet goods. It hasn't helped my sweet tooth!A fun, frothy and heart-warming read that I enjoyed very much.Thank you to the publishers and Netgalley for allowing me to review this book.

I love to travel. I love to eat. I love to travel and eat at the same time. The Traveling Tea Shop was just up my alley. It was a fun book but with lots of interesting and historical tidbits thrown in. I found Laurie's character to be believable and could sympathize with the different issues she needed to deal with, both in her professional and personal life. I don't read a lot of chick-lit but found this book to be so much fun! <br/><br/>The characters were well developed, the plot had a few twists, a bit predictable in places but that was ok. This was the first book I've read by Belinda Jones and I'm definitely going to check out her other books.

Charming<br/><br/>This book is such a feel-good book. It still makes me smile every time I think of it. It's so charming, the characters are great, the setting is amazing, and don't get me started on all the cakes and cupcakes....<br/><br/>There's a great romance story in there, just so sweet and right. There's a story line about family dynamics and how screwed up and hurtful they can be. There's lots of travel and discriptions of scenery and locations that make you want to pack your bag and go.<br/><br/>And all these elements are masterfully interwoven into one charming, beautiful package. Fabulous book!
