An irresistible novel brimming with wit, warmth, and Irish humor, about the married owners of a friendly tavern in Belfast and the intimate lives of the customers and employees who band together to save it from demolition.

Jack Beaumont and his beautiful wife, Lily, are the owners of the tavern on Maple Street, a tiny Victorian pub they inherited from Jack's great-uncle Ernest. It's a quiet place, untouched by the modern world, and that's why the customers like it so much. But a property developer wants to demolish the tavern and build a shopping mall on Maple Street.

Jack and Lily and their little home-away-from-home are suddenly plunged into the limelight, caught in a desperate struggle to save their business from the bulldozers, or, with the help of some new employees, to at least make as much money as possible during their last few months as landlord and landlady.

In The Tavern on Maple Street, Sharon Owens delivers another delicious sparkler full of love, friendship, relationships, and the day-to-day lives of ordinary people, one that is sure to satisfy readers' insatiable appetite for her romantic and quirky Belfast tales.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 12/7/2010

    " no, I won't be reading any more of her books. From what I read of her reviews, if you've read one, you've read them all, just with names and places changed. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 10/6/2010

    " Bardzo ciepla ksiazka o tym, ze relacje miedzy ludzmi sa bardzo wazne. Inni ludzie wplywaja na nasze zycie, czy chcemy czy nie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathie | 10/4/2010

    " Read this book quickly, without expecting much. I really did enjoy the characters and it was more inspiring than I thought it would be. The ending was a little, well, normal. Certainly worth a read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 8/3/2010

    " Predictable but enjoyable enough for a long road trip. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alan | 3/30/2010

    " Mindless Dribble. Not very well written. "A chick book."
    A real chore to finish. Lifetime movie material... "

    " The story is predictable but enjoyable.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 9/26/2009

    " Well, I thought it was a quaint little book that drew me to the characters and the cause. I also like the little Irish/English/British nuances that spice it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dot | 8/4/2009

    " Delightful! Sharon Owens writes such feel good books. They are like having a lovely warm bath :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Africableu | 5/22/2009

    " Not a very heavy book, but a nice summer read. The author does a great job with description--that was this book's great strength. I love books where food and the preparing of food is described in such wonderful detail. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karlyne | 4/30/2009

    " I love Sharon Owens, even though I'm leery of books with theme titles (the other one I read is "the Tea House on Cherry Lane"). She has a talent for making quirky odd people much more real than your neighbors. But, her books do make me hungry for Irish food and tea... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bathcitygazette | 3/21/2009

    " I liked this book very much. Her characters and their relationships were wonderful. I always enjoy stories about perserving small towns/historical roads/quaint corners/ etc.
