A deliciously funny and delicately moving novel perfect for anyone with an appetite for baked goods and sweet romance.
A delectable tale of friendship, love and cake for fans of Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella...
Laurie loves a challenge. Especially if it involves anything beautiful, baked and frosted.
The brief is simple:
With three other women, Laurie will board a London bus - kitted out as an English tea shop - on a deliciously different road trip of the USA.
To bring home-grown classics like Battenberg, Victoria sponge and scones to the land of cupcakes, whoopie pies and gold-leafed chocolate sundaes. And to show them how a real cup of tea is made.
All of the women have their own secrets and heartaches to heal. As well as a grand appreciation of cupcakes, there's also the chance for romance...
But will making whoopee lead to love ?
All aboard for: New York - Connecticut - Rhode Island - Massachusetts - Maine - New Hampshire - Vermont
