Book Review: The Vintage Teacup Club by Vanessa Greene

At a car boot sale in Sussex, three very different women meet and fall for the same vintage tea set. They decide to share it- and form a friendship that changes their lives...
Jenny can't wait to marry Dan. Then after years of silence, she hears from the woman who could shatter her dreams.
Maggie has put her broken heart behind her and is gearing up for the biggest event of her career- until she's forced to confront the past once more.
Alison seems to have it all: married to her childhood sweetheart, with two gorgeous daughters. But as tensions mount, she is pushed to breaking point.
Dealing with friendship and families, relationships and careers, highs and lows, The Vintage Teacup Club is heart-warming story-telling at its very best. 
My very lovely friend Kim from Still Reading sent me The Vintage Teacup Club as she enjoyed it so much and I am glad she did as I loved it!
It's a great idea to use a vintage tea set to tie the three characters together. Jenny, Maggie and Alison meet at a car boot sale where they all approach the same buyer of a tea set. Instead of someone missing out, the ladies decide to share it and a new friendship group is borne.
Vanessa Greene writes with great warmth and understanding as she delves into these three women's lives. Each is at a different stage in their relationship and I loved how they all helped each other out and gave advice from different view-points.
Each chapter is written from one of the character's perspectives so we learn a lot about the issues they are facing plus the developing friendship between all three.
Vanessa Greene has written a heart-warming story with a good pace. I could imagine the book being made into a feel-good film, maybe something along the lines of The Calendar Girls. This is the first book I have read by Vanessa Greene, I really hope she writes more soon as I enjoyed this one.
