#BookReview: Tequila and Tea Bags by Laura Barnard #ChickLit

Reviewer: Terry

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

tequila and tea bagsSummary:

Sent to live with her cousin Elsie in the Yorkshire countryside, Rose has only one thing on her mind; joining her friends as a club rep in Mexico.

When she hears about a council incentive offering the promise of free flights to the person who clocks the most volunteering hours at the local care home, she’s got her plan set.
But she doesn’t plan on bonding with the old ladies, going after the village bad boy and trying to persuade Elsie not to become a Nun.

Soon she’s questioning who her real friends are and whether her old life is one she wants to return to.

Can the village win her over and will she win the chance to leave it behind? Will she even want to?


Rose is sent to live with her soon to be Nun cousin, because at 28 her parents can’t handle her irresponsible behavior anymore. Rose’s cousin lives in a very small village, where everyone knows everyone and immediately finds herself getting into far too much trouble.

This was a fun story to read where you truly do get to watch a character grow and change as the story goes along. Rose most certainly grew up throughout this story, as she went from being the girl who drank too much tequila, to the girl who found her unconventional “family” and learned to appreciate tea.
