LET'S GET COZY! TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT
A Teapot Collector Mystery
BY AMANDA COOPER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Tucked away in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York is the charming town of Gracious Grove, where time moves slowly, gossip spreads quickly, and the scones are to die for...

When her fashionable Manhattan restaurant goes under, Sophie Taylor retreats to her grandmother’s cozy shop, Auntie Rose’s Victorian Teahouse, where serenity is steeped to perfection in one of her many antique teapots. The last thing Sophie expects is a bustling calendar of teahouse events, like her old friend Cissy Peterson’s upcoming bridal shower.

Not everyone is pleased with the bride-to-be’s choice of venue—like Cissy’s grandmother, who owns a competing establishment, La Belle Epoque, and has held a long-simmering grudge against Rose for stealing her beau sixty years ago. Tensions reach a boiling point when Cissy’s fiancé’s mother dies while sampling scones at La Belle Epoque. Now, to help her friend, Sophie will have to bag a killer before more of the guest list becomes a hit list...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Victoria Hamilton is a pseudonym for national bestselling author Donna Lee Simpson, who is also a collector of vintage cookware and recipes.

I was hooked the moment that the author said that the scones are to die for! I am crazy about lemon poppyseed scones. Dangerous stuff, I can't stop with just one. I know I would love to read this book.

The first thing that caught my eye is the cover. I would love to sit in a tea shop that looks like that. Will be interesting to read Cissy's Grandma being unhappy that they are not using her venue.
