Overview

Three women’s lives are about to change because of a few delicate pieces of china...



When Jenny Davis comes across a beautiful vintage tea set at an outdoor market in the English countryside, she’s convinced it’s fate. A young bride on a budget, she has her heart set on a vintage tea-party theme for her wedding—and the gorgeous gold-rimmed china before her is perfect. There’s only one problem. Two other women have fallen in love with it, too. So they come up with a solution: They’ll share it.



They establish a sisterhood, sharing the ups and downs of their lives—from broken hearts and weddings, to family drama and career dreams. When a figure from Jenny’s past threatens to ruin her big day, Alison’s teenage daughter pushes her to the limit, and Maggie’s romantic life is thrown into turmoil, the members of the Vintage Teacup Club band together—proving their newfound friendship will last a lifetime.

    Three different women are at a car boot sale in Sussex and want

    Three different women are at a car boot sale in Sussex and want to purchase the same vintage teaset.   They decide to share it and manage to form an amazing friendship.




    Jenny is engaged to marry Dan.   As the date approaches her past, which she thought was in her past, comes into her present and she has to deal with it.  She wants to serve her wedding guests in vintage teacups.




    Maggie is broken hearted and is a florist in charge of the biggest event of her life. She is in need of the teacups to make floral displays for the event. 




    Alison is happily married, or she thought she was, with two beautiful daughters.  As things get tough in her life she realizes that all is not as she thought. She is looking for teacups to make candles out of them.




    This novel is a story of a friendship that grows during the search for more teacups.  These women quickly become much more than friends , they become sisters.   It is a story of love and friendship and families.  




    Each character became a friend to me.  I looked forward to Jenny’s story the most (maybe cause I am planning my brother’s wedding now).  Do not get me wrong.  I loved all the stories, each woman was easily relatable and loveable.    I found myself comforted by these girls and hoping that I could comfort the characters just the same.  




    I will recommend this book to all my chic-lit friends .  I am hoping that there will be more to come about these three lovely ladies.

    Three women are standing together but apart as they stare at a s

    Three women are standing together but apart as they stare at a set of vintage teacups.  One can feel the tension as each wants to buy the whole set but knows the others want that sale just as much. Before the reader realizes it, they come to a perfect compromise.  Each will share the set for a certain period of time before the last purchaser gets to own the whole set.  In the process a wonderful friendship is established and this novel is about the lives of these apparently unimportant women who live such typical and yet unique lives.  Their past is as much vintage living as the cups they share, with a history and consequences worth sharing!
    Jennie’s engaged to Dan and seems very content with their love.  She enjoys sharing with her newfound friends but is about to receive the shock of her life when she hears from someone unexpected.  And it’s not someone she wants in her life again at all!
    Alison is a happily married woman with two daughters, one of who is feeling every one of her teenage oats and doesn’t mind letting her mother know it.  Alison worries that her previously close relationship is falling apart but something will occur that shows Alison hasn’t lost her daughter at all.  It’s a fairly common tale here but the way Alison and her friends deal with it all is what makes the friendship so valuable.
    Maggie has tossed the past away along with a relationship which practically devastated her after she was rejected by the man she thought she would be living with forever.  However, she’s started a new florist business which has prospered and now includes a wedding she’s planning that’s probably the largest job she’s ever had. It’s got unique challenges since it’s to be geared to an Alice in Wonderland theme, complete with mushrooms and tea party to be held in a gorgeously planned garden.  The man in charge of the garden, however, Owen, is an ornery creature who seems to find a problem with Maggie’s every plan or suggestion and could definitely thwart her plans for the future as well since success with this endeavor would bode well for future business for sure.
    The Vintage Teacup Club has a fairly simple plot but is no less endearing for that fact.  Sometimes there can be a loveliness to a simple story that is well-told with dynamic characters and unique plot. This is just such a story and very nicely done as Vanessa Greene’s first novel.
