The Vintage Teacup Club - Vanessa Greene (2012)

This book begins with three women in search of something unique and simple for different reasons at a car boot sale. But they all fall for the same teaset and agree to share it and through this they form a bond. Jenny has found the man of her dreams in Dan, and then suddenly someone walks back into her life with a bang. Maggie has closed the box on her broken heart and focuses on the event in her career that could change her life but life isn't as always simple as you want it to be. Alison is happy with the way her life is, married to her true love with two daughters, but the balance of her life becomes unsteady and she is pushed to breaking point. We as readers are given an insight into the history of the teaset and I think a lot of readers will find this interesting, especially if they are interested in vintage items and their history. This is a simple easy read with a few surprises along the way. (KD)
