Heiress to Waitress: The Royal Tea Shop Book 1 by Ginny Clyde is a young adult romance about rising up from where you’ve fallen, and learning how to live by your own strength. Olivia, her younger brother, James, and their mother, Sarah, had recently been robbed of everything by their Uncle Kelvin. After having to move from their home in Edinburgh to the United States, Olivia is taken aback by her new school. Despite it all, she meets a mysterious classmate named Ryan, who tries to protect her in the best way he can. Even so, she manages to get a job as a waitress at a tea shop, where she soon learns that she can make it in America with the help of her family and newfound friends.
This book presented an interesting situation of when a family loses their wealth. Olivia, her mother, and James struggled to adjust, and while they did a wonderful job of it, I doubt they would’ve known what to do if not for the fact that people like Stacie and Jonathan were there to support them. True, it was, admittedly, amusing to see them trying to live their everyday lives, but I was happy that they slowly began to grow accustomed to it. It made me realize just how much they took for granted, something that is reflected in everyday life. While it can be a bit cheesy at times, the book is also a good, clean young adult read that everyone can enjoy. I didn’t particularly like Olivia’s love interest, but Ginny Clyde got me hooked with this story. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a bit of clean romance every now and then.
