    "A well told great story"

    The story was wonderful. It appealed to me as an older listener. The characters are realistic and the story is funny, poignant with mystery and pace.

    I enjoyed this book although I do feel the ending was a little rushed and predictable. Good though. Would recommend.

    "My Cup of Tea."

    This is a lovely, light enjoyable read. The characters here are very black and white - the good guys are wonderful and the bad guys are BAD. Normally this would frustrate me but for some reason it did not in this book. Instead I found myself thoroughly engrossed in the stories of the main characters. The romantic outcomes are predictable but the characters are so warm and the story telling so enchanting that I found I finished this book very quickly. Another cup of Milly Johnson? Yes please.

    I liked all the characters in the book and how they all connected up with each other.

    All of them but probably Sean and Will were my favorites

    This was just a typical lovely Milly Johnson story. Sadly I listened to it way too fast and am sad it's finished now. Come on Milly, get writing please!

    "Heartwarming, Sweet, and Held my Attention"
    Where does The Teashop on the Corner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Since my favorites have been Erica James books, this one fit right in with my top ranked audiobooks so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Teashop on the Corner?

    All the descriptions of cake! And the lovable, varied set of characters.


    Which character – as performed by Colleen Prendergast – was your favorite?

    Mr. Singh, but they were all consistently distinct.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Teashop on the Corner and why?

    It was an ensemble piece, so it's hard to say.


    Any additional comments?

    A feel good book, through and through. Appealed to my romantic nature without being cheesy or over the top. Just lovely!

    "lovely, heartwarming story (or rather stories)"

    Superbly interwoven stories of several very likable characters. Had and held my attention from the very first minute. Be warned: The beginning might lead you into thinking that this develops into a revenge story, however, it’s all about love and caring for each other.
    Excellent narrator.

    "Great story - more than a typical romance"

    Although this is labeled a romance, it is about many characters's lives and the trials and the friendships in life. Ms. Johnson's characters come to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this whole book.

    Has The Teashop on the Corner turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Colleen Prendergast?

    the gril fro Sofie Consella's books

    Story
    "Enchanting what a fabstory"
    Would you listen to The Teashop on the Corner again? Why?

    Yes. The nice characters were lovely and the horrible ones were horrible! I buy Milly Johnson's books as soon as the come out, they are always a treat. I love the narrators voice too.


    What other book might you compare The Teashop on the Corner to, and why?

    Probably her other books except for It's Raining Men which was a bit more fantasy.


    What about Colleen Prendergast’s performance did you like?

    What can I say, everything, her inflections and the rythm of her accent brings the story to life. I ordered some of the back catalogue that I had previously read as I love her book. I'm so glad Ms Johnson chooses the same narrator every time.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried in parts. I never cry but I did.


    Any additional comments?

    When's the next one coming out??

    Story
    "One of Milly Johnson's best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Teashop on the Corner to be better than the print version?

    I doubt that it is better but it certainly passed several hours of somewhat tedious work around the house in a very pleasant way, impossible with the print version.


    What other book might you compare The Teashop on the Corner to, and why?

    It is not dissimilar to other books by the author in that it is an ensemble story, featuring a group of characters with one thing in common, lives that are not particularly happy. The actual reasons are varied, but loneliness is the underlining problem in all the cases.


    Which character – as performed by Colleen Prendergast – was your favourite?

    There was no outstanding character, the joy of the book was in that they were all interesting and so well portrayed by Colleen Prendergast.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly. It was pleasant to know that I had the story to return to when I needed a pick-up during the day.


    Any additional comments?

    No murders or gratuitous violence, no vast sums of money or Hollywood lifestyles, just a story about a group of ordinary, but pleasant people who find in each other the support and friendship that they were lacking and the ability to cope with the problems that life had chucked at them. The whole book gives one a nice warm feeling.

    "Really great easy listen/read 😌"
    Where does The Teashop on the Corner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I hadn't anticipated that this would constitute a 5* listen/read. My usual reads are more 'meaty'. However, within the genre, this one is really pretty great!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It didn't make me laugh out loud or cry, but it did warm my heart, make me smile and move me.


    Any additional comments?

    At first 'glance', this is a little 'chick lit' book, but its actually so much more than that. The characters are so well drawn and, for the most part, likeable. They each have rich stories. Its beautifully paced and a really lovely book. I may even read/listen (to) it again when I need a 'snuggle-up', good quality read/listen, something I very rarely do.

    I knocked one star off for narration due to a couple of errors that should have been edited better. Not at all the fault of the narrator, who did an excellent job!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Teashop on the Corner to be better than the print version?

    I've not seen the print version so couldn't say


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They are all so well written its not necessary to have favourites


    What does Colleen Prendergast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I liked her simple interpretation and found it charming easy listening but my husband found her voice irritating,


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not sure what you mean by this?


    Any additional comments?

    This is a charming book which captures your attention early on with it's first surprise event and Milly Johnson keeps your interest with the weaving of her ordinary characters and how their lives are improved by knowing each other. A feel-good book in the best sense and I was sorry when it came to an end so I will buy something else from this author with my next credit.

    "Do not Judge a Book by its Cover!"

    I brought this book as it was recommended and it has been absolutely delightful!

    Do not judge a book by its cover. The cover looks like the book might be one dimensional, but is it so far from this.

    The story is lovely with so many twists and turns. Really heart-warming. I have already brought more audiobooks by this author. I would have scored the narration more, but there was one point where there was poor editing and the narrator apologised for forgetting to do an accent.

    The story is about how a teashop brings people together. These individuals have all suffered some adversity. Great story.

    I listen to lots of audio books and i have been impressed with all of those by Milly Johnson, i love to read her books too


    What other book might you compare The Teashop on the Corner to, and why?

    The Yorkshire Pudding Club, Here come the Girls - both by Milly Johnson. They are easy listening and have great characters. I think if you like Fern Britton and Lucy Diamond you will like this book too.


    What does Colleen Prendergast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    She brings the characters to life and makes them very believable


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ryan's story and the relationship between Molly and Harvey.
