Publisher's Summary

Warning: Afternoon tea with Lady Woodridge can and will be fatal.

Evangeline "Evie" Parker, Countess of Woodridge, has trekked out to her country estate, Halton House. It's time to pick up the reins and re-establish herself in the district. No easy task when one of her afternoon tea guests is poisoned. Is it a coincidence when another guest is found dead from poison?

Scotland Yard steps in. While Evie trusts they will find the killer, she takes exception when the finger of suspicion is pointed at her.

Evie has her hands full trying to keep the name of Woodridge free of scandal as well as mending fences with her maid Caro, who has found a unique way of expressing her displeasure.

If the poisoner doesn't get her then, surely, her maid Caro wil....

Something is lacking

I just cannot get into the characters in the Evie Parker books. I have listened to two at this point and find most of the characters to be uninteresting and shallow. Only grandmama comes to life. I keep comparing these books to the Nancy Drew mysteries that I enjoyed when I was 10. Now I want better quality of writing. I will be returning the first two on the series as well as the third to which I have not listened.

Fun Read

I had trouble distinguishing the voices.
I feel like 2 plot points were not resolved.

Sweet (& Savory) Mystery

This was a great mystery with some fun twists and turns that ended up someplace unexpected. I liked that.
