I’m currently reading Tea & Treachery by Canadian author, Vicki Delany and I’m loving it! My morning routine typically involves a big mug of organic green tea in my favourite Canada 150 mug (Canada is older than that now) because it’s big and sturdy; so it holds up whenever I have one of my many clumsy moments, and slightly sweetened with a tiny bit of stevia.
I only discovered the cozy mystery genre last year and it immediately became one of my favourites, because who doesn’t like furry friends, delicious recipes and a good mystery thrown into the mix? Plus, the covers of cozy mysteries are adorable. (Self-professed book cover snob here. 🙋🏻♀️)
Tea & Treachery publishes on July 28th.

From NetGalley: As the proud proprietor and head pastry chef of Tea by the Sea, a traditional English tearoom on the picturesque bluffs of Cape Cod, Roberts has her hands full, often literally. But nothing keeps her busier than steering her sassy grandmother, Rose, away from trouble. Rose operates the grand old Victorian B & B adjacent to Lily’s tea shop . . . for now. An aggressive real estate developer, Jack Ford, is pushing hard to rezone nearby land, with an eye toward building a sprawling golf resort, which would drive Rose and Lily out of business.
Tempers are already steaming, but things really get sticky when Ford is found dead at the foot of Rose’s property and the police think she had something to do with his dramatic demise. Lily can’t let her grandmother get burned by a false murder charge. So she starts her own investigation and discovers Ford’s been brewing bad blood all over town, from his jilted lover to his trophy wife to his shady business partners. Now, it’s down to Lily to stir up some clues, sift through the suspects, and uncover the real killer before Rose is left holding the tea bag.
