During this year’s annual migration to North America, I bought a Japanese teapot. It’s been a dream of mine to buy one, and now I have! It’s made of cast iron with an oxide green coloring, and has two delightful cups to go with it. I love it.
I’m not the only one who does. Miss Knight adores teapots of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. As some of you know, the intrepid paranormal investigator has opened her very own tea shop in colonial Nairobi. She’s determined to move on with her new career. All goes well until a dead bride shows up amongst the teapots. How terribly inconsiderate.
I’m super excited to let you know that we (finally) have a launch date for “Murder for Tea“, the first book in the Cozy Tea Shoppe Mystery series. Get ready to make a pot of tea and re-enter the world of African mythology, Victorian etiquette, colonial intrigue and, of course, ridiculous amounts of tea.
Assuming we don’t have a zombie apocalypse (always a possibility), a meltdown of the Internet (I’m surprised it hasn’t happened yet) or any other inconveniences, “Murder for Tea” will be available at all the usual online stores on 19 July 2017.
Cheers, and Long Live Tea.
PS: The Book Blurb is below.
Murder is brewing: While Beatrice Knight Timmons is part witch, the only thing she’s interested in nowadays is tea, and copious amounts of it. But that isn’t the only thing boiling in her life. No sooner does she open her very own tea shop in the small town of Nairobi, someone with a vendetta against young brides murders one and leaves the body in The Cozy Tea Shoppe. With her best friend’s wedding only weeks away, can Miss Knight stop the murderer while babysitting a monkey and serving difficult customers?
This is the first case in the “Cozy Tea Shoppe Mystery” series, where Jane Austen meets Lara Croft in colonial Africa. Tea isn’t the only thing that’s brewing in the delicious sequel to the “Society for Paranormals” series. Join supernatural detective Miss Knight as she attempts to keep the kettle hot and her customers satisfied (or at least alive) while dodging murder, mayhem and other inconveniences. Serving tea has never been more dangerous.
