Book Review of Tea For Two by Trish Perry

I am a fan of Trish Perry's work. She writes a sweet story that centers around a relationship with Jesus Christ. So when I was given the chance to review her newest book, Tea for Two, I knew I just had to. Let me give you some information about the book and then I will give you my honest opinion about it:)
Counselor Tina Milano has been visiting Milly’s Tea Shop regularly for the past several months. She has many friends but no steady man in her life. Zack Cooper is a local farmer who provides Milly with fresh fruit and vegetables. As a single parent, Zack is doing his best to raise his teenage son and daughter on his own.

When the kids get in minor scrapes with the law, Milly gently encourages Zack and Tina to work together to draw the teens back before their rebellious natures land them in even hotter water. At first Tina sees the relationship in only a professional capacity, but soon her friends notice the luscious scent of romance in the air and decide to help things along.

MY REVIEW-Like I said before, I have come to really like Trish's novels. She has a way of writing that is different from a lot of other authors. I was able to review the first book in this series and I loved it! So I was wondering if the second book would be as good as the first or if it would be below par. You know how it is. So, when the book arrived, I plunged right in. Needless to say, I finished it in a day and a half:) Tell you anything?

This book deals with a lot of issues. That is one thing I like with Trish. Her novels seem like they are so fun to read but you come away with a lot of things to think about. One issue is children who are dealing with a parent divorced. Not only is there insecurity but rebellion as well. This book deals with this in a very big way! Another issue dealt with that I liked was boys and girls. I know, you are going, what? But Tina at one point is dealing with Sherry, Zach's daughter. And she gives her some very good advice about when she is dealing with boys. Especially boys who are over-friendly. I wish I could put the quote in here but I want to be careful about putting part of a book out. Needless to say, it is very good!

I have to say, my favorite character in this book is Milly. She was in the first book as well, duh:) as this is all connected to her tea shop. But to me she is a nice gentle yet spunky lady who I would love to meet! She always has words of wisdom that mean a lot and right when the other person needs them. I also liked Zach and Tina. Zach especially was dealing with a lot of guilt and this, in the end, brought him close to Dylan, his son.

Overall, I loved this book and it just put Trish's books higher on my list:) And I am serious about these books making you think. You will love this cute, yet strong, Tea with Milly series and the only thing I have to say is, Where is the next one!!! LOL! WAY TO GO TRISH!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
