Publisher's Summary

Muldoon's Tea Rooms, beloved for the cozy atmosphere and luscious desserts, has started looking a bit outdated, and the same could be said about the proprietors, Penny and Daniel Stanley.

After 17 years, their marriage has started to fade and wear a little thin, even as their old shop bustles with the energy of the customers who seek refuge from their particular dilemmas. Housewife Sadie Smith comes to escape her diet and her husband's stick-thin mistress. Struggling artist Brenda Brown sits and pens love letters to the actor Nicolas Cage. And Clare Fitzgerald returns after 20 years abroad to search for a long-lost someone.

Behind the cherry cheesecakes, vanilla ice creams, and chocolate cappuccinos are the stirrings of a revolution that will define lives, heal troubled hearts, and rock the very foundation of the humble teahouse. And through it all, Penny and Daniel manage to discover what truly matters in life and love. Rich with wit, bursting with charm, The Tea House On Mulberry Street is a vibrant debut of tenderness, imagination, and delicious pastries.

    "Chick-Lit"

    I enjoyed Teahouse on Mulberry Street...But be forewarned its very much chick lit. By chick lit I mean....There are a lot of women standing around, having tea, bitching about their husbands and a certain lack of action.I enjoyed the fun characters and the sleepy feeling of the town. But I admit I found the multiple-character persepctive a little annoying. Plus the wind up with the main character's loser husband was a little slow.

    Overall, not a bad read. But nothing that makes me want to repeat the experience.

    Story
    "Fun, Charming Book-A Delight to Listen To"
    What made the experience of listening to The Tea House on Mulberry Street the most enjoyable?

    I loved the reader with the lilting Irish accents. It added so much to the story of these rich characters in Ireland. It is a very descriptive book, and the reader just takes you right there to the streets of Ireland.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters-so divergent. I loved the vehicle of the tea room to bring them together. I always love stories about the richness of day to day living, and the power of the individual to make meaningful changes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the whole story line of Sophie, the overweight and overworked woman who finds out her husband is having an affair. She evolved with such dignity and such creativity! I don't want to give away the details of my favorite scene and be a spoiler!


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

    I wanted to listen all in one setting, but I was not able to. This is a book you can't wait to get back to!

    Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...

    "perfect for audio ... charming story"

    this is my first book from this author. i imagine it might be somewhat spare in the reading/ traditional book form, however, as an audiobook it is really charming and worth a second listen .. i will definitely put her others on my wishlist.
