The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane by Sheila Roberts

The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane (Life in Icicle Falls, #5)Book Description:
When it comes to men, sisters don't share! 

After a fake food poisoning incident in L.A., Bailey Sterling's dreams of becoming a caterer to the stars collapse faster than a souffl√©. Now Bailey's face is in all the gossip rags and her business is in ruins. But the Sterling women close ranks and bring her back to Icicle Falls, where she'll stay with her sister Cecily. 

All goes well between the sisters until Bailey comes up with a new business idea—a tea shop on a charming street called Lavender Lane. She's going into partnership with Todd Black, who—it turns out—is the man Cecily's started dating. It looks to Cecily as if there's more than tea brewing in that cute little shop. And she's not pleased. 

Wait! Isn't Cecily seeing Luke Goodman? He's a widower with an adorable little girl, and yes, Cecily does care about him. But Todd's the one who sends her zing-o-meter off the charts. So now what? Should you have to choose between your sister and the man you love (or think you love)?

My Thoughts:
This was an interesting book.  Sisters being in love or at least interested in the same man is never a good thing.  Especially when there is business involved.  Cecily and Bailey are both attracted to Todd, but then there is Luke as well.  When business partners appear to be more, sisters will be at each others' throats.  Who belongs with who and how will the sisters live in the same town with all that is going on?
I enjoyed this story.  It had it's moments of oh my, laughable, and shocking.  The characters were so fun to know.  The story line was good, nothing went exactly how I expected it to.  I would have enjoyed more time with the characters but the story itself was good.
This is a 4/5 for me.  I look forward to more from Sheila Roberts.
