Overview

Murder is afoot is the sedate English city of Royal Tunbridge Wells...and the crime may be brewing in a tea pot!

Nigel Owen is having a rotten year. Downsized from a cushy management job in London, he is forced to accept a temporary post as acting managing director of the Royal Tunbridge Wells Tea Museum. Alas, he regrets living in a small city in Kent, he prefers drinking coffee, and he roundly dislikes Flick Adams, PhD, an American scientist recently named the museum's curator.

But then, the wildly unexpected happens. Dame Elspeth Hawker, the museum's chief benefactor, keels over during a meeting of the trustees-the apparent victim of a fatal heart attack. With the Dame's demise, the museum's famed collection is up for grabs and the two prima donnas find themselves facing professional ruin.

Flick-who knows a thing or two about forensic science-is convinced that Dame Elspeth did not die a natural death. As Flick and Nigel follow the clues- including a cryptic phrase from the Bible-they discover that a crime perpetrated more than a century ago sowed the seeds for a contemporary murder.

Ron and Janet Benrey have been a writing team for nearly two decades. They’ve co-written nine romantic suspense novels, beginning with “Little White Lies.” Despite their authorial togetherness, Ron and Janet have dissimilar backgrounds:

    Engaging!

    This book is very well written. It is not a 'thriller' -you can read it at night and still sleep. :) But the twists of the plot keep you guessing as to who committed the crime until the last few pages. There are also many comical moments that keep you entertained and lend to the light-heartedness of the story. Highly recommended!
