    I love stories about tea houses I love about book shops So this book was right up my alley Because not only is it a story about the building and the institution of it it’s about the owners the people who live next door the people in town the visitors who drop in And of course everyone had their story And it all coils back to the tea house A fun cozy light hearted read Bottom line is that everyone has their ups and downs secrets and challenges hopes and dreams The chapters jump around because there is so much going on with the people involved in the story This was not a deterrent to me The photo cover of my book selection features an old hand scripted envelope on a rustic table with a cup of strong tea in an old timey tea cup a luscious cherry cheesecake tart oh geez I really really want one of these right now and a few sugar cubes sprinkled around If the cozy cover doesn’t lure you to choose this book off the shelf the easy reading story of people and life will make you feel good at the end I do agree with some other readers that the writing style is of dearly departed author Maeve Binchey d2012 The writ describes a cozy small town and its own personal style and challenges plus an introspection into the lives of the village characters A human nature story if you will I do recommend this little gem And if you are so inclined there’s a recipe for the pictured cherry cheesecake pie at the back of the book 🥧🍒

    This was a delightful read I couldn't put the book down and when I needed to take a break from it I returned to it a few minutes later The author invites the reader into a cosy world where the characters seem to be stagnant; stuck in the routine of daily life and are victims of their circumstances There are a few uirky characters that add humour to a novel that can at times seem rather bleak as it depicts how fragile we all are and how pathetic our lives can become if we don't pause re evaluate and take action I especially enjoyed how the author touched on the plight of a creative person and how much this character craves for her work to be well received and acknowledged The novel definitely has a mystical element throughout and it will leave the reader needing a pot of tea by their side and perhaps some scones as well I read this book two times and I willingly stepped into a world where characters are so diverse from each other yet so similar as their vulnerability emphasises their humanity The fact that they all enjoy sipping their tea devouring the scrumptious desserts in the same tea room also emphasises this common need to belong and to find passion in life The outdated tea room's need for refurbishment symbolises each character's need for change and perhaps their fear and resistance to it Similarly it shows the shattering of dreams and hopes and the need for healing Ironically this need is greatly felt by the owners of the very tea room where many of the characters seek to find solace and comfort in as they take time to pause and live in the moment I highly recommend this novel It may seem like a light read but it deals with universal and deep issues and emotions and this is delivered in a clever and entertaining way

    A mostly light Irish novel In the style of Maeve Binchy with the plot driven by stories of individual characters A bit too much mid life crisis infidelity and broken marriages to be uplifting overall The main characters' story was the most interesting and redeeming for me The other stories had some delightful momentsI'm going to look for another novel by this author to see if it is of a different subject matter because I did like the writing style

    Welcome to Muldoon’s Tea Room home of delicious cherry cheesecake and meeting place for the vast array of characters who inhabit this Belfast neighborhood Owners Penny and Daniel Stanley have done little else but work in the tea house for the duration of their seventeen year marriage and that mundane existence is getting pretty old for Penny Their story is the focus of Sharon Owens THE TEA HOUSE ON MULBERRY STREET but truth be told it's really the customers that make a visit to the teahouse a real treat Fans of Maeve Binchy will uickly find themselves comparing Ms Owens writing style and characters to those of Ms Binchy Although a die hard fan of Binchy I was completely taken by the Owens characters Her folks are definitely aggressive and fallible and apt to give in to their feelings My personal favorite in this compendium of personalities was Sadie Smith who takes rather vindictive action when she discovers her cheating husband Arnold plans to leave her and wed his “young honey” as soon as his parents are gone Seems he can’t divorce Sadie now since she is the caregiver for her husbands’ parents and it would cut into his considerable savings if he had to hire outside help to care for them Sadie’s revenge is as delicious as a huge slice of chocolate cake topped with ice cream and is sure to give every reader a big belly laughThen there is Brenda Brown bohemian starving artist who spends part of her time being fired from various jobs part of her time devoted to her art and part of her time writing fan letters that she rarely mails to the love of her life Nicholas Cage This is only a demitasse size sample of the engaging amusing and vibrant folks you may run into at the tea house Owen has a real talent for depicting the lives of ordinary people and their ordinary lives in an extraordinary way The book is definitely hard to put down and your housework is sure to sufferFor my final thoughts on author Sharon Owens and The Teahouse on Mulberry Street I will rely on a uote from a teahouse regular Brenda Brown and state “I’m a genuine fan”

    I'm a fan of tea rooms There are times I pop into my favourite local tea room for a latte grab a window seat and watch people passing by or other customers and wonder what stories their normal lives hold Scandal? New discoveries? Family secrets? Maybe it's because of this that I have given this novel a top rating I don't give out five star reviews easily but The Tea House on Mulberry Street deserves this accolade The story is based in Belfast Ireland the centrepiece of the novel being surprise surprise the tea shop This establishment is run by Daniel and Penny Stanley Daniel has had a sad and shady past and is very tight with his money; Penny several years younger than Daniel likes pretty things and is very eager to refurbish the ever decaying tea room Both own and work in the tearoom and basically it is their life For a while anywayThe other characters in the story are freuent visitors to Muldoons tea roomthe eccentric and delusional artist Brenda Brown who can't sell her artwork and has an infatuation with Nicolas Cage constantly writing him letters; Henry and Aurora Blackstaff the unlikely couple him being into gardening and her into her literature and Bronte Bunch meetings; Clare Fitzgerald and her pursuit of Peter; Alice and Beatrice Crawley the elderly spinster twin sisters who spend their lives collecting for charity and awaiting their moment of reward for their efforts; Sadie and Arnold Smith Sadie being the rotund foodie housewife and Arnold the purveyor of blinds and conservatories who also happens to have a bit on the side Patricia Most of the comedy in the book comes from the Smith's relationship and it's down and downs It never seems to have upsDespite a sizeable part of the book being concerned with the characters' infidelity I found myself asking who WASN'T having a fling at one point there is a disaster a revelation and a happy ending It only took me a few hours to read once I started I could not put this book downBe warned like caffeine this book is very addictive

    I might be the only male that has read The Tea House on Mulberry Street but it was in an effort to become a well rounded reader during a time I wanted to become a professional book reviewer If film critics have to watch everything then I would be led to believe that book reviewers are to be held at the same standard My great aunt was giving away books and I took everything that was available While I eventually sorted through it and only kept what caught my interest I did get to this one beforehand and came across something that was light cozy and okayThere is nothing that is too complicated about the premise of this story It follows a couple Daniel and Penny Stanley that own a tea house in the UK and some strenuous drama that takes place between them during a tough situation that pops up I feel that for the audience that it is aiming toward which is a reader that is looking for something light and expected that they are 98% sure will pan out in the end after drama induced circumstances this is the book for you For me this novel's greatest accomplishment was how it attracted my gustatory and olfactory senses creating a cozy atmosphere that would be reflective of being in a café or bakery in the UKI have since either sold this book or donated the book to be sold so it was a decent delight but not something I wish to read and examine It was okay in my mind but feel it is specifically reserved for those that do not have high expectations when it comes to how predictable it is and are easy to satisfy

    This is a light and frothy read but it is fairly forgettable There were uite a few characters which I found it a little difficult to keep track of which may also have something to do with my difficulty in remembering the story The characters’ lives intersect at the Mulberry Street teahouse Muldoon’s The main aspects that stand out in my mind are artist Brenda’s continual letters to Nicolas Cage Penny’s yearning to have a child unfortunately not shared by her husband and her husband Daniel’s penny pinching ways I enjoyed it as I read it

    Long rambling not very positive review thing follows Minor bitchiness And some spoilers ticks the spoilers boxThis book has been on and off my TBR list several times so when I had the opportunity to read it while staying with my parents last week I grabbed the chance While I found it sufficiently interesting to hold my curiosity long enough to finish it I can’t in all honesty say I liked it I felt almost all the characters where unsympathetic and lacking in any kind of depth I knew almost from the moment I met each character which would get a happy ever after and which would get his or her comeuppance Those who were deemed worthy of happy endings were allowed to get away with all sorts of bad behaviour – marital infidelity dishonesty and humiliation of innocent bystanders for instance – without having to suffer any apparent conseuence Scorned wife embarrassing cheating husband at work do was amusing until she started telling people his nick names for them Would this character really be so insensitive to how hurtful this would be to those people? She came across as selfish mean and horrid as a result and therefore I wasn't cheering when she finally won her happy ending Some of the other character related stuff I found bizarre Example the beautiful and successful business woman who had resigned herself to having no female friends because they all eventually became jealous of how all men would look only at her and ignore them Does the author really condemn the entirety of her gender as that superficial? Then there were the older ladies who we are told were born during the Second World War Their behaviour and attitudes seem to me appropriate to people born decades earlier than that but it is critical to their story that they are born in 1940 or 41 making them only 58 or 59 at the time of the story They are written like a pair of octogenarians and one is referred to as a pensioner I wondered briefly if the author had ever met any old people Aspects of the writing annoyed me too On one occasion the reader was made aware of facts the characters didn’t know by the simple expedient of being told and then mysteriously the characters were able to deduce these same facts in an amazing intuitive leap That aside I thought the uality of the writing was pretty average And as for the Happy endings? Well two characters only got their separate happy endings after they’d abandoned their dreams – one to be a writer the other a painter There's a message to take on board kids I thought the description of the made over tea house was awful but that may just be my 2011 sensibilities jarring against 1999 chic And I really truly don’t want to think too hard about the chronic comfort eater who suddenly started losing weight once she got a job in the café Finally I can't resist saying that this book was simply not my cup of tea
