Publisher's Summary

When The Parlour opens up in town, domestic diva Sophie Winston finally has a place to satisfy her cravings for all things tea and crumpet related. And the shop serves as the perfect place for the ladies of the town to gather and gossip, especially since it's conveniently located right across the street from the new antique store run by the handsome and charming Robert Johnson.

But speculation around Robert really boils over when he's found dead - a victim of poisoning after attending a literacy fundraiser at The Parlour the night before. What Sophie learns about the man leaves a bitter taste in her mouth, and she'll have to strain out a killer from a strange brew of suspects.

Loved series

Every book in this Diva series was wonderful to listen to. Every crime kept me wanting to listen a bit longer to try and figure it out. There was always a twist when I thought I had it. Would like more books to be written for the series. And as an extra, I learned quite a few things from both Diva’s advice column.

Love This Series

If you could sum up The Diva Serves High Tea in three words, what would they be?

A perfect cozy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sophie, of course! She's smart, just the right amount of nosy and a genuinely pleasant character to hang around for a few hundred pages.

What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

Hillary Huber has fast become one of my favorite narrators. I love the voices she uses for each character and that she varies both tone and tempo. Her Natasha is fabulous and I love whenever Bernie makes an appearance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I remember chuckling several times and snorting at least once.

Any additional comments?

Love the series, the author and the narrator. The only reason I knocked off a star on the story is because there were a few far-fetched moments that screwed up my suspension of disbelief. Other than that, it was everything I need in a cozy: smart characters, funny moments and a good mystery.
