Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Vicki Delany's delightful Tea by the Sea mystery series continues, as Cape Cod tearoom proprietress and part-time sleuth Lily Roberts stirs up trouble when she unwittingly serves one of her grandmother's B&B guests a deadly cup of tea....

Lily has her work cut out for her when a visit from her grandmother Rose's dear friend Sandra McHenry turns into an unexpected - and unpleasant - McHenry family reunion. The squabbling boils over, and soon Tea by the Sea's serene afternoon service resembles the proverbial tempest in a teapot. Somehow, Lily and her tearoom survive the storm, and Sandra's bickering brethren finally retreat to Rose's B&B. But later that evening, a member of their party - curmudgeonly Ed French - dies from an apparent poisoning, and suddenly Tea by the Sea is both scene and suspect in a murder investigation!

Mercifully, none of the other guests fall ill. So it seems, amid the whining and dining, someone snuck up to one of Lily's cherished teapots and fatally spiked Ed's bespoke brew, but who? Was it Ed's long-estranged sister-in-law? Or perhaps the family's feuds have been steeping for longer than anyone realizes? It's up to Lily, Rose, and their friends to get to the bottom of the poisoned pot and bag the real culprit behind the kettle murder plot.

Good story but poor narration threatened to ruin it

The narrator was awful. Why would the company hire someone who was completely unable to speak with an English accent for a book that featured an English woman as one of the main characters? Actually the accent used for Rose was so bizarre it was unidentifiable as belonging to any region or culture.
If Vicki Delany continues with series, a different narrator is a must. The first book’s narrator was excellent and I looked forward to the next book…until I heard the current narrator. It would have been an enjoyable “listen” if the first narrator had also read the second book.
