I am delighted to share my review for Coffee, Tea or Me by Rich Amooi.
Fellow Book Blogger Zoe who blogs at zooloosbookdiary is running an Author Take Over feature from today (14th Feb) until the 29th February about Rich’s books. I am delighted to link up with her today and share my review for one of Rich’s earlier books, Coffee, Tea Or Me.
I first came across Rich Amooi during a Blog Tour with Rachel’s Random Resources for the book There’s Something About a Cowboy (my review – click here), so when I saw an invite for another of his books I immediately jumped on that one as well, this time for the book It’s Not PMS, It’s You (my review). After I had read the first book I decided to buy a couple more, it has taken me a while to get round to it as my TBR is quite vast!
Let me show you what this book is all about…
Susie opens a tea shop next to Jack’s coffee shop and the war begins.
Jack Robbins has a booming coffee business, an eighty-year old customer who can’t keep his clothes on, and a rescue Chihuahua named Chimichanga that likes to kiss on the mouth. Life is good until the new business next door takes a bite out of his sales.
Susie McKenna has the new tea shop everyone is talking about, an over-protective brother, and a stubborn, good-looking neighbor who is trying to steal her customers.
Things really start to percolate when Jack and Susie both volunteer to help plan the downtown festival. They have to work together and soon Jack won’t be able to get by without his daily fix of Susie. But can a coffee lover and a tea devotee put their competition aside to get their happily ever after?
When I wanted to read a pure escapism, rom-com story that I knew would leave me with a warm fuzzy feeling and a smirk on my face, the author that sprang to mind was Rich Amooi. I have read a couple of his books and have thoroughly enjoyed them.
Coffee, Tea or Me is certainly a tale that has all the right elements that make up a light-hearted, fun and quick read. The opening of a Tea shop next door to a Coffee shop definitely sets the proverbial cat among the pigeons. Coffee shop owner Jack is a little put out. Susie the new owner of a the tea shop is looking for a fresh start.
A the story pans out there are little games and tactics at play as the rivals make the most of their businesses. To be fair though it is mainly Jack who is the instigator. There is however something else at work, that is the attraction that flows between the two owners.
Being a small community, people need to work together especially when the yearly festival is due. Can the two work things out or will things go pear shaped?
Rich does such a great job with his stories. This book was great for disappearing into for a couple of hours. It was a light read that made me smirk, especially the antics of Harvey, he is hilarious and such a dear. There is that good balance of will they/ won’t they to the romance side of the story and that is mixed in with tea, coffee and scones.
If you are after a lighthearted story that will pop a smile on your face and leave you with an “Aaahhhh” feeling then check this one out. It isn’t a serious or heavy book and this makes it ideal for a cheeky afternoon book. Ideal for readers of rom-com. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend it.
