5/5 Tea Cups
On The Back:
The kettle’s about to boil over . . .
The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there’s nothing cozy about murder . . .
Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi’s sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi’s name—without getting herself in hot water.

The seventh book in a quickly growing series, Tea Cups and Carnage was a vast improvement over the last book and overall an above-par book that I enjoyed!
The main characters were back, and they all seemed to have new life breathed into them. The characters had started to get repetative in the few books before this one and in the last book they fell completely flat; however in this book they were wonderful. They all had new layers added on and I especially liked the parts with Josh.
The mystery was also so much better. Jill didn’t do very much sleuthing and it all just fell into her lap; that’s my favorite kind of mystery! The ending was very suspenseful, and my heart was beating so fast!
Overall a simply wonderful book. I will be reading the next book and I’m very excited for Ms. Cahoon’s new series coming in September!
