About the Book
When a ruthless restaurant critic visits Daisy’s Tea Garden, everyone is on edge. Things get even worse when the critic is found dead the next day – with a box of Daisy’s tea sandwiches on his counter. Can Daisy get to the bottom of how this man was really killed and clear her tea garden’s good name?
Daisy is a widow with two daughters. One is in high school and the other college. This, along with trying to re-enter the world of dating herself, gives Daisy an array of personal issues to deal with you don’t often see in cozy mysteries. I felt like Daisy’s personal story took center stage with the murder placed in a secondary story line. I didn’t mind this. I thought the story was well told and I look forward to future adventures with Daisy and her girls!
