The Little Teashop in Tokyo
Romantic Escapes Series #6
by Julie Caplin
Grab your passport and escape to a land of dazzling skycrapers, steaming bowls of comforting noodles, and a page-turning love story that will make you swoon!
For travel blogger Fiona, Japan has always been top of her bucket list so when she wins an all-expenses paid trip, it looks like her dreams are coming true.
Until she arrives in vibrant, bustling Tokyo and comes face-to-face with the man who broke her heart ten years ago, gorgeous photographer Gabe.
Fiona can’t help but remember the heartache of their last meeting but amidst the temples and clouds of soft pink cherry blossoms, can Fiona and Gabe start to see life – and each other – differently?
I was drawn to this book firstly because the main character is called Fiona (my name and I have not read a lot of books with my name believe it or not) and secondly it is set in Japan and that is a place I would absolutely love to visit one day (and after reading this I want to go right now!).
Fiona is a travel blogger and photographer and she won a competition that takes her to Japan to be mentored by a professional photographer and do and exhibit, only when she arrives she discovers her would-be mentor has been called away and she is instead paired with world renowned photographer Gabe – only she has met him 10 years previously when she was a student and he essentially broke her heart when she tried to kiss him and he rejected her. It appears that he doesn’t remember her, which hurts her but as they begin to spend more time together he begins to recall that time.
The beautiful setting of Japan paired with the amazing characters made this an enjoyable cozy read, I loved the traditions that Fiona experienced mixed with the modern like the Digital Museum.
This is book is part of Julie Caplin’s Romantic Escapes Series and each book is separate stories so you do not need any previous in order to keep up with a story line, having said that I want to read the other books in this series as there are some amazing places!
Jules Wake announced at the age of ten that she planned to be a writer. Along the way she was diverted by the glamorous world of PR and worked on many luxury brands, taking journalists on press trips to awful places like Turin, Milan, Geneva, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam and occasionally losing the odd member of the press in an airport. This proved fabulous training for writing novels as it provided her with the opportunity to eat amazing food, drink free alcohol, hone her writing skills on press releases and to research European cities for her books.
She writes best-selling warm-hearted contemporary fiction for HarperImpulse.
Under her pen name, Julie Caplin, her thirteenth novel, The Little Teashop in Tokyo will be published in ebook and paperback this June.
