No Good Tea Goes Unpunished


This is the 2nd book in the Seaside Cafe series by Bree Baker.  I found it fun to return to the small island town of Charm, NC.   Everly has been growing her Tea and Sweets shop since the first book set a few months earlier.  

In this case, we meet another childhood friend from town, Judy, who is celebrating her nuptials on the Beach next to Everly's shop and home.   Everly has helped with the coordination of the wedding and is hosting the bride and subsequently, the groom in her Victorian home.  Unfortunately the wedding is not without mishap and Everly finds herself embroiled in another mystery.

This mystery reintroduces us to Grady, the local detective.  The sparks continue to fly between Everly and Grady as they muddle through the investigation.   Everly's innate need to assist and satisfy her curiosity gets her in the middle of the investigation against Grady's wish for her to remain

My rating: 4 of 5 stars 

Southern charm meets disastrous wedding

The return to Charm, NC to visit with Everly and her Aunts is a charming Southern trip. Unfortunately while helping host a wedding for a childhood friend things go wrong. The mystery gets so complicated and the suspects numerous. The guilty party is not revealed until the end and the motivations unexpectedly believable. Reading these books makes me feel like I’m on vacation and a part of the small town. I’m excited to keep reading the series
