Release day: The Little Teashop on Main

7 May 2019

Today is the official release of The Little Teashop on Main by Jodi Thomas (trade paperback, HQN). Here’s the blurb:

A rainy-day ritual—a tea party between three little girls—becomes the framework of not only their friendship, but their lives.

Redheaded, curly-haired Zoe is openhearted, kind and free-spirited, and dreams of becoming a famous actor in New York City. Shy Emily struggles with mental health but has the heart and soul of a writer. And Shannon—tall, athletic, strong—has a deep sense of loyalty that will serve her well when she heads off to military college.

As Zoe, Emily and Shannon grow into women—forging careers, following dreams and finding love—they’ll learn that life doesn’t always unfold the way they want it to, but through it all, the one constant is each other, and their regular tea parties. And when the unthinkable happens, the girls must come together to face the greatest test of all.

Jodi dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I often say that, as a writer, I don’t spend time trying to piece a plot together. It’s more like I sit down in my study and wait for the people in my stories to come to me. In my mind they walk in, take a seat and tell me their story. With TEA, it seemed a crowd walked in and they all wanted to tell me their story. A story of friendship so deep it lasts a lifetime, a man strong enough to care profoundly about three women … loving one, befriending one, and protecting one. As I wrote The Little Teashop on Main, I realized how lucky a few of us are if we have one or two friends we keep for a lifetime. My three little girls form a bond at five that shelters and grounds them in good times and bad.
