Publisher's Summary

Daisy, a widowed mom of two teenagers, is used to feeling protective - so when Iris started dating the wealthy and not-quite-divorced Harvey Fitz, she worried...especially after his bitter ex stormed in and caused a scene at the party Daisy's Tea Garden was catering. Then there was the gossip she overheard about Harvey's grown children being cut out of his will. Daisy didn't want her aunt to wind up with a broken heart - but she never expected Iris to wind up a suspect in Harvey's murder.

Now the apple bread and orange pekoe is on the back burner while the cops treat the shop like a crime scene - and Daisy hopes that Jonas Groft, a former detective from Philadelphia, can help her clear her aunt's name and bag the real killer before things boil over....

Formulaic

This is an ok cozy mystery. It's formulaic and not very imaginative. The characters are flat and the pacing of the story is slow. C.S.E. Cooney is not my favorite narrator. I find her overly dramatic style annoying. I won't be getting the next story.

ENJOYABLE NEW SERIES FOR ME

I LIKE THESE CHARACTERS, ESPECIALLY JOSH, AND I LIKE THAT DAISY RESPECTS HER DAUGHTERS BUT DOES DRAW THE LINE. I HATE STORIES WITH PERPETUALLY SULLEN KIDS.

MS. COONEY IS NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITE READERS. SHE IS TOO STILTED, ALMOST ROBOTIC, AT TIMES. SHE HAS PROMISE BUT NEEDS TO RELAX AND SPEAK NATURALLY.
