A Vintage Tea Party

Has anything ever sounded more delightful than a Vintage Tea Party? Well, no, I don't think so and at my age, I really should have been to more of them.

I was lucky enough to win a place to go to a Vintage Tea Party from Little, Brown book group with author of The Vintage Teacup Club, Vanessa Greene. It involved all the essentials: tea, cake, fizz and a book club style chat with Vanessa.

All the guests received an early copy of The Vintage Teacup Club and I devoured that in the same way you should a plate of cake. The book is about three woman: Jenny, Ali and Maggie who form a friendship when they discover they all have a need for vintage cups. Each reason is different and they agree to work together to get the number they need. They each have different stories and it was great to read a story involving more than one generation.

During the evening, Vanessa did some readings and we got to discuss which of the characters we most identified with, what parts we enjoyed and we were able to ask Vanessa all about her writing journey everything from where she got the idea from to how much cake she ate in the process!

It was a lovely evening and I will go into more detail on The Romaniacs blog and at some point Vanessa will join us on there for a Tuesday Chit-Chat.

Now to attend to my diary. I really do need to schedule more tea parties into my life.
