Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Little Teashop of Lost and Found by Trisha Ashley, read by Colleen Prendergast.

Alice Rose is a foundling, discovered on the Yorkshire moors above Haworth as a baby. Adopted but then later rejected again by a horrid stepmother, Alice struggles to find a place where she belongs. Only baking - the scent of cinnamon and citrus and the feel of butter and flour between her fingers - brings a comforting sense of home.

So it seems natural that when she finally decides to return to Haworth, Alice turns to baking again, taking over a run-down little teashop and working to set up an afternoon tea emporium.

Luckily she soon makes friends, including a Grecian god-like neighbour, who help her both set up home and try to solve the mystery of who she is. There are one or two last twists in the dark fairy tale of Alice's life to come...but can she find her happily ever after?

distracting

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

it felt like a long book. You know that's not a good sign. The switching of stories was not well indicated in audible format. Seems like the producer could have helped that out some. I will be listening along and then realize it's the "other" story line and have to back it up to follow.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Least interesting is the fairly tale horror aspect<br/>

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

no probably not<br/>

A Little Feel Good Story

Story was an enjoyable listen. I really liked the narrator's accent and speach patterns. There were no real surprises and you knew from the start how Alice's romantic relationship would end, but there was an unexpected twist on the search for her birth mother.

The only real negative for me was the narrator did not distinguish enough between the voices of all the characters, so it was confusing who was talking throughout the story. In one conversation I thought the voices were mixed up. I didn't catch on that Dr. Collins was speaking at the end of each chapter until halfway through the book as the voice sounded like Alice, so I missed that thread in the beginning.

That said, it was a fun, light story. And thanks for the recipes at the end!

Enjoyed the story

I enjoyed the story but I found the narration a little irritating. Too slow and a little stilted.

Good story

I did enjoy this book although found it a little predictable- I even guessed the twist. For future listeners at the end of each chapter the story flashes back and until you realise it it's quite confusing!! I found the narrators phrasing very odd and it spoilt it somewhat for me

Good storyline

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Maybe. A lot happens to our heroine so that is interesting.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Little Teashop of Lost and Found?

A great twist later in the book. Did not see it coming and I always do.

What aspect of Colleen Prendergast’s performance might you have changed?

The story had 3 voices running through it and there really should have been a pause between each and a change of accent. Two were identical and it was hard to follow.

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

Ish

Any additional comments?

Not much romance - thank god. But totally predicable ending, as always. That is always a shame; but the twist made up for it.

The worst narration I have ever heard.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Somebody else narrating it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Trisha Ashley? Why or why not?

yes but providing Colleen Prendergast was not narrating it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Dreadful

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story was okay, but could have been better if it had of been narrated properly.

Any additional comments?

Does anyone ever listen to the book once it has been narrated? If so I am sure they must have been asleep.
