teatimereads February Pick: A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

We’re incredibly excited to announce our February book for teatimereads — A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow.  With a beautifully written tale about the 3 F’s (family, friends, and food), grief, and an incredibly sweet romance, and you guessed it, tea, we couldn’t be more excited to have chosen A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow for our February pick! We highly recommend you settle in with a warm cup of Vanilla Black (you’ll find out why when you read the book), English Breakfast or a London Fog, paired with some good snacks. 

For Lila Reyes, a summer in England was never part of the plan. The plan was 1) take over her abuela’s role as head baker at their panadería, 2) move in with her best friend after graduation, and 3) live happily ever after with her boyfriend. But then the Trifecta happened, and everything—including Lila herself—fell apart.

Worried about Lila’s mental health, her parents make a new plan for her: Spend three months with family friends in Winchester, England, to relax and reset. But with the lack of sun, a grumpy inn cook, and a small town lacking Miami flavor (both in food and otherwise), what would be a dream trip for some feels more like a nightmare to Lila…until she meets Orion Maxwell.

A teashop clerk with troubles of his own, Orion is determined to help Lila out of her funk, and appoints himself as her personal tour guide. From Winchester’s drama-filled music scene to the sweeping English countryside, it isn’t long before Lila is not only charmed by Orion, but England itself. Soon a new future is beginning to form in Lila’s mind—one that would mean leaving everything she ever planned behind.

Content Warnings: family member death, breakups (friendship & romantic), mental health issues, grief, and dementia.
