About this deal

Her prose left my heart fit to burst into a million starlit pieces scattered between Miami and Britain.

I don’t know what’s worse, not getting to say goodbye, or saying goodbye to a little more every year. Like many of the buildings we passed in town, the Owl and Crow looks like something straight out of a Jane Austen novel.Flour, butter, and sugar are only platforms for other flavors—spices and extracts, fruit and cream and chocolate. She had a friend, Stephanie (might be the wrong spelling because I listened to the audiobook) who planned to leave their plans to attend uni together for a program of sorts in "a village in Africa". I can’t tell my friend about the thick, bittersweet fillings of castles and vanilla black tea, or the rich, spongy cake of new friends and songs.

I think it's been filmed for more than a year, and we still don't know when it will be released, nobody says anything, in fact I think it was filmed before Heartstopper season two was filmed.

Quick Thoughts: A sugar-sweet novel that made me laugh, cry and wish on a happy ending for a girl with big dreams and a star-named boy. Orion entertains her with his mental collection of superstitions and sweeps her onto his vintage motorbike. The landscaping sounds accurate though I’m not from the south but that’s believable but I don’t know many British who are obsessed with figs in desserts like the book implies and we don’t have “afternoon tea” everyday.

Seeing Spence here, instead of in Miami when he’s visited with his wife and son, makes me realize how much his entire look blends into his brick-and-mortar inn. I love him and his collecting of superstitions and willingness to pick up running to spend time with Lila. I drink PG Tips several times a day and have only ever had afternoon tea with the posh tea and sandwiches etc a handful of times.I usually don’t set goals during the start of the year, usually just my usual Goodreads reading goal challenge, and for this year maybe to post more travel photos and book recommendations here.

As she falls in love with Winchester, the cold weather, and of course Orion, she infuses her baking with British pastries including Chelsea buns and fig pastelitos. Laura Taylor Namey is the New York Times bestselling author of Reese's Book Club pick A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow.She hasn’t turned Abuela’s bedroom into a guest room yet, or moved her worn garden clogs from the patio. When her parents moved to Miami from Venezuela, Cate spent so much time at Abuela’s with Mami, it became her second home. There was one thing I did find a bit odd in this and should’ve been picked up in editing: Lila’s best friend ditches their plans to go to a “village in Africa” – and what does that mean?
