Meet The Sweet Street Team!

The Little Teashop of Broken Hearts is mostly set in Sweet Street Teashop, with owner Maddie at the helm. Working alongside Maddie are her faithful co-workers, Mags and Victoria, so I thought I'd make a little introduction to the teashop trio!

Maddie has dreamed of running her own teashop for almost as long as she can remember. Her grandmother taught her to bake when she was a little girl and it's been a passion of hers ever since. She opened her teashop a year ago and although it's having a few teething problems, it really is a dream come true.

Although Maddie loves her customers, she's most comfortable in the kitchen with a whisk in one hand and a heavy bowl of sugary batter in the other while thinking of the potential joy the treats will bring to her customers.

Maddie's favourite sweet treat is a simple fairy cake with icing and sprinkles, as they remind her of her childhood.

Mum of two Mags is in her late thirties (though she won't tell you just how late). She's been working at Sweet Street Teashop since it opened a year ago. Mags has her fingers in all the pies at the teashop (though not literally - don't be worrying about the hygiene implications). She bakes, waitresses and balances the books (which is a relief for Maddie as numbers that don't contain lbs, kilos or other such measurements sail way over her head).

Mags is fun and flirty (especially with a certain builder who frequents the teashop) and loves nothing more than chatting with the customers.

Her favourite treats from the teashop are raspberry cream cheese brownies.

Victoria is the youngest member of the Sweet Street team and has been working with Maddie and Mags for almost six months. She mainly waitresses as baking is not one of her talents. Waitressing isn't the career Victoria envisions for herself, but she has bills to pay until her band signs a recording deal and they actually earn some cash from their music.

Victoria's role model is Avril Lavigne.

Her favourite treats at the teashop are peanut butter blondies.

From fairy cakes to first dates!

Maddie Lamington’s dreams are crumbling around her. If she doesn’t come up with a plan to save her little teashop on Sweet Street soon, it might be too late…

So when she sees how the perfect apple crumble brings together her lonely father and faithful customer Birdie, inspiration strikes: she’ll set up a dating night involving all her sweetest bakes.

Luckily, seriously gorgeous Caleb is on hand to help sprinkle a little magic – and a lot of sugar! Could one night of scrumptious first dates fix Maddie’s heartbreak and save her beloved teashop, too?
