The book that started it all! Own a brand-new, signed, first edition hardcover copy of The Tea Rose, Jennifer’s first novel and the first book of the beloved Tea Rose trilogy. Jennifer will personally sign and gift-ribbon each copy, and inscribe it to you or your favorite reader on request — just specify to whom you’d like it inscribed in the “Order Notes” section of the checkout screen (or leave the “Order Notes” field blank and Jennifer will simply sign it).

These copies were sent to Jennifer directly from the publisher’s warehouse in the mid-2000s, and they’ve been in her possession ever since. They are in pristine, unopened condition — you’ll be the first to open this beautiful book.  (Well, the second — Jennifer will open the front cover to sign it for you!)

    The Tea Rose has been my favorite book ever since it was published! It is one in three that I re-read over and over. The characters are loveable and relatable, and it involves one of my favorite things – tea! Thank you Jennifer for writing it. Having an original hardcover is a wonderful treat. Glad you found them. 🙂

    I bought this a while ago as a gift for my daughter and it was shipped to the UK for me but I have only been able to add my review to the website now. This book is wonderful and Jennifer wrote the most fantastic personalised message inside. My daughter was absolutely thrilled. The purchasing process was excellent, highly recommended and I cannot wait to be able to buy the others!
