Scott, Mary "Strictly Speaking" - 1969
Time for the next book by Mary Scott. This time, two friends buy an old house in the middle of nowhere to open a tea shop. But Mary Scott hardly needs any setting or concept in order to start writing a lovely little story about friendship, love, trouble and a happy end. Like all of her other books, this was a nice read.
Unfortunately, Mary Scott's books are out of print and only available second hand. I have heard in the meantime, that you can buy some of them as eBooks.
From the back cover: "So often, delightful and pretty Vicki O'Brien would begin her sentences with the words 'Strictly Speaking'. And it was one thing that Vicki rarely did, for she would tell lies - harmless little fits she called them - in order to keep everybody happy. Although this irritating habit frequently led her into trouble, even her great friend Lucy thought she would never be cured of it..."
