Giveaway: Win a signed copy of The Travelling Tea Shop by Belinda Jones

Last week I had an amazing day out in London attending the joint launch party for Belinda Jones' latest novel The Travelling Tea Shop and Sunlounger 2, a fabulous collection of short stories by some of the best fiction writers around which is being published soon.

I had already been planning a giveaway for a copy of The Travelling Tea Shop as part of this Hodder & Stoughton feature week but as I was meeting Belinda in person I was able to get her to sign the book for the lucky winner ;)


A delectable tale of love, friendship and cake...

Laurie loves a challenge. Especially if it involves tea-time and travel. So when British baking treasure Pamela Lambert-Leigh needs a guide on a research trip for her new cookbook, she jumps at the chance.

The brief:
Laurie and Pamela - along with Pamela's sassy mother and stroppy daughter - will board a vintage London bus for a deliciously unusual tour of the USA's East Coast, cruising from New York to Vermont.

Their mission: 
To trade recipes for home-grown classics like Victoria Sponge and Battenburg for American favourites like Red Velvet Cake and Whoopie Pie.

All the women have their secrets and heartaches to heal. As well cupcakes galore, there's also the chance for romance...

But will making Whoopie lead to love?

 To enter, simply follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter form below.   a Rafflecopter giveaway

  12. For me it would have to be Double Chocolate Fudge Cake (hot) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

    I am so glad that I cannot bake because I would put on so much weight from eating cake (well I would have to try them wouldn't I?).

    Funny cake story though, in high school, a friend and I decided to make cup cakes at my house. No one was in but us two but someone had put something in the oven already. Not to be defeated by a lack of baking receptacle we decided that in the face of this adversity that the best way to make our cakes would be to grill them.

    They did not taste good.

    Hope I win after that tragic insight into my life :) x x
