For Elaine and Jan, opening a Tearoom in their new home on Chickadee Lake is a true labor of love. This cozy cafe gives them plenty of opportunities to serve others with faith and friendship over a cup of tea. But, more often than not, the cousins’ hospitality also draws them into mysteries that can be downright baffling.
I’ve been into this sweet, cozy mystery phase and long with Hallmark’s countdown to Christmas so this book fell right into that category (minus the Christmas part).
I loved the setting, the small town feel the spirit of our two main characters. The mystery was definitely a slow build but there was enough going on that I was never bored, just interested in what would happen next. My only complaint is that our characters don’t really seem to have any flaws, nothing they are working through personally. I always like that about most books, seeing a character overcome something personal, but other than that this was a nice read.
