Rosie's Travelling Tea Shop by Rebecca Raisin

Today I am so excited to have been invited to take part in the blog tour for this fun and heart warming read from Rebecca Raisin. This is published on 3rd March 2019 by HQ Digital, who I would like to thank for my copy of this book in exchange for my honest view.

Book Description

Rosie Lewis has her life together.

A swanky job as a Michelin-Starred Sous Chef, a loving husband and future children scheduled for exactly January 2021. That’s until she comes home one day to find her husband’s pre-packed bag and a confession that he's had an affair. Heartbroken and devastated, Rosie drowns her sorrows in a glass (or three) of wine, only to discover the following morning that she has spontaneously invested in a bright pink campervan to facilitate her grand plans to travel the country.

Now, Rosie is about to embark on the trip of a lifetime, and the chance to change her life! With Poppy, her new-found travelling tea shop in tow, nothing could go wrong, could it…?
A laugh-out-loud novel of love, friendship and adventure! Perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Holly Martin.

My Review
This is a fantastic read that will have you engrossed from the first page to the last as you follow Rosie on her adventure to find herself.  
Rosie is devastated when all her life plans come crashing down around her after her Husband, Callum  drops the bombshell that she's not spontaneous enough and that he's been having an affair and he is going to be leaving her. This is not how things were meant to go. Rosie had it all planned out, how their lives would progress together, she had even planned when they would have children. 
Rosie decides to not let him get to her and prove that she is not spontaneous and decides she has had enough of her job, and after a few too many glasses of wine she accidentally buys a pink camper van. 
Rosie's new plan then starts to take shape she is going to go on a tour of the country and make some hearty home cooked meals to sell to fund her trip. 
With her Home all packed up and everything she needs loaded in the camper named Poppy, Rosie has a sudden lack of courage and very nearly changes her mind. This is such a big step for her to take but after a strong talking to herself, She heads out of London and hits the open road for her new adventure. 
 It's at her first stop off that Rosie meets Aria, who has a travelling book shop and the two of them strike up a close friendship deciding to have an adventure travelling together. What follows is the adventure of the two of them as they spend time travelling and getting to know more people to share their adventure with. It's while stopping at a festival that they meet the very handsome Max. Although he is the total opposite to Rosie sparks begin to fly between the two of them. Max, however is not the only man on Rosie's mind as she has been emailing a man called Oliver after chatting with him online about getting into the traveller life. They have yet to meet up though and they are both keen to do so but is Oliver everything he seems? will travelling over the summer help Rosie get over Callum and will she learn to love again?
This is a fantastic read. Rosie to start with is very unsure of herself and lacking in confidence. It's great to see that grow and watch her bloom as you read all about her making different choices. There is a range of supporting characters that surround her all of who are a part of Rosie's adventure and also have stories of their own. 
I loved reading about all of the settings they visited and I loved it when one local to me that I have visited was featured. I also loved reading about all of the yummy treats and teas that Rosie created however they will seriously make you hungry while reading.
