Excellent story about love and deception and lies. Think Binchy but without all the unnecessary stuff she ads. This book was short sweet and to the point. I could not put it down today.

I listened to the unabridged version; 8 CDs; 10 hours. The Narrator was Caroline Winterson, who did a great job with the whole thing.
Charming. Delightful. I guess someone might say that it is chick-lit. It has many happy endings. It made me happy and renewed my faith in things really working out in the end. I felt that I was experiencing a 'slice-of-life' in Belfast Ireland.
The whole story revolves around the Tea House which is located on Mulberry Street. There is the story of the owner of the Tea House and the stories of many of the regulars that often come there. I totally enjoyed the character of Brenda Brown, the struggling artist, who writes love letters (on red paper with gold ink) to her heartthrob Nicolas Cage. She is spunky, eccentric and so full of dreams and life. Now I want to hear all the rest of Sharon Owens books.

I love how Sharon Owens creates characters whose lives intersect in almost the most trivial ways, but each of them have incredibly compelling individual stories. I really enjoyed "The Tea House on Mulberry Street" as it delves deeply into some deeply flawed characters' lives and we see the author wrap each mini story up nicely with a bow.

This book is set in Belfast Ireland. After I read the last page, I was torn about how I felt about this book. I think another person put it correctly about this being Flawed Characters. That puts the story more into prospective and helps me come to terms with the characters choices. I was so disappointed that so many characters were not in a happy marriage, and how easily they discarded their mates. Not is a cruel, or even dramatic way, overall, almost without emotion, time to change the lightbulb, or get a new pair of shoes, or this color really doesnt suit me.

I still liked the book, and would recommend that it gets read but it was not so deep and profound, and all their lives kinda wrapped up real quickly at the end. At least everyone found happiness, which makes for a nice ending.

A lovely story in the style of Maeve Binchy. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. Her characterizations are so adept, I felt like I knew all the people in the story personally.

A pleasant read! There is a Tea house where the owners are a younger couple who are having marriage problems. This tells the story of the owners, a number of its patrons and what they are going through in their lives and how a simple place like this tea house can impact others. It is about marriage, fears, lies, secrets, desires and life itself. I highly recommend it!

I loved this book--such a comfy read. I loved the cafe setting and the couple that owes the cafe. The regulares that come each day make for a small hometown feeling that is just what i wanted when i picked this book up. There really is a lot going on here in this tea house with the discription of the yummy smelling soups and breads {even a few recipes} to the special seating that each regular has, makes me want to go to the Tea House on Mulberry Street. Loved the book.

I really enjoyed this book. I picked it up at a discount table in a discount store, then it laid on my nightstand for a few months before I finally read it. Once I started it I had hard time putting it down. The characters are very charming and the author makes you feel like you know each one of them. She does a wonderful job of intertwining all of their lives, in a very easy manner, not cumbersome at all. Easy to read, delightful, and very enjoyable book.

Muldoon's Tea Rooms, beloved for the cozy atmosphere and luscious desserts, has started looking a bit outdated--and the same could be said about the proprietors, Penny and Daniel Stanley. After 17 years, their marriage has started to fade and wear a little thin, even as their old shop bustles with the energy of the customers who seek refuge from their particular dilemmas: Housewife Sadie Smith comes to escape her diet and her husband's stick-thin mistress. Struggling artist Brenda Brown sits and pens love letters to the actor Nicolas Cage. And Clare Fitzgerald returns after 20 years abroad to search for a long-lost someone.

Behind the cherry cheesecakes, vanilla ice creams, and chocolate cappuccinos are the stirrings of a revolution that will redefine lives, heal troubled hearts, and rock the very foundation of the humble tea house. And through it all, Penny and Daniel manage to discover what truly matters in life and in love.

Rich with wit, bursting with charm, this is a vibrant debut novel, full of tenderness, imagination--and delicious pastries.
