Giveaway and Review of Leslie Matthews Stansfield's Mr. Tea and the Traveling Teacup
After the death of their mother, sisters Terry and Karen Sutter, turn their childhood home into a teahouse. It’s a dream come true, but the dream begins to resemble a nightmare when teacups start crashing to the floor in the middle of the night. Could the teahouse be haunted? There’s a list of possible ghostly candidates: the prior owner who is rumored to have left behind a buried treasure, two spinster neighbors who disappeared without a trace over forty years ago, or perhaps it’s Terry and Karen’s own mother trying to communicate with them. Karen, the older sister, thinks running a haunted teahouse might be fun, until the sisters come home one night to find the attic stairs covered in a trail of what appears to be blood. Is it a ghost or a warning? The teahouse’s new mascot, a psychic macaw, may provide some unexpected clues, but the sisters will encounter many more surprises before they solve this mystery.
This was a great cozy, it had everything that I love about a cozy. It had humor, mystery and even a little romance. This was a book that once I got into it, I didn't want to put it down and I wanted to know why the teacup kept falling off the middle shelf. There was more than one mystery in this wonderful book, the mystery of how the teacup falls, and the mysteries from the past of the missing neighbor sisters, the mystery of the bank robberies and the mystery of the death of Thurston Hamilton. This book had it all, and I highly recommend it. If you are looking for a can't put down read with mystery, humor, action and a little romance, (Christian ficition lovers will also like this book as it has a message of GOD's forgiveness in it) then this is the book for you. I loved it! Great job Leslie, I can't wait to read more about Madeline's Teahouse and it's wonderful owners and their friends.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
