I have to disagree with a couple of the reviews so far. This book is not simple or for younger audiences. It is however, a real read. You could mistake the feeling of being one of these characters, who has been drawn into a great murder mystery with your best friends, as predictable because you know yourself so well! That's where this book takes you and almost from the beginning. With these four ladies and their extended family and friends, just introduced in this book, your sure to find your match in a character. With all the details like receipes, local resturants, local shops and local folkfore mixed in with great friendships and mystery, you can't help but read chapter after chapter until your done. It feels just as if you are the fifth friend sitting in on all the action. You WILL want to brew tea, eat savories or at least book a tea party with all your favorite people during this entire read. I wanted to see Jonesbrough, TN and all it's mystery after reading this book and did! I knew all the right places to look for thanks to the references in the back of the book. Reading this book will make you eager to read the next in the series, so you'll know what your friends are up to next. If you love tea, friendships, history and mystery....you will LOVE this book!

This book is delightful from start to finish. The close knit friendships, the willingness to aid another tea room owner in need, the history and travels these four ladies go on- I love it and highly recommend this series. The second book is set in Jonesborough, Tennessee home of the National Storytelling Festival. I love the descriptions of Main Street and the quaint shops and townspeople. I felt like I was sitting in Lyla's Tea Room enjoying a pot of tea and a bowl of pumpkin bisque with the ladies. When murder is the recipe and all signs point to Lyla's owner, the tea ladies come together to find the real killer. Along the way, ghost stories, local history and an unsolved mystery from the 1940's become the center piece. Recipes from the author's REAL tea room are always included as well as recommendations for great teas! I can't wait for her third book, The Traveling Tea Ladies Dath in the Low Country which will be out December 2011.

I am a mystery novel lover and this book was not very suspenseful. I would have to agree with previous reviewers that this book is simple and geared toward a younger audience. Also, the setting of this book is kind of boring. It wasn't the worst I have read, but there are much better mystery series out there.

I would say that this book's writing makes it geared toward a younger audience. The writing, plot, and characters are painfully simple. Everything about this book is very mild, and rather banal. The book is very short; I just could not take it seriously as a mystery novel. When I read, I like a challenge or a twist...this book failed on both accounts. If you are looking for a very light, simple read, this is probably for you. The story is predictable, and no deeper meanings or issues are involved. It seems almost shallow. I prefer books that spark thought and inspire discussion so I will likely avoid anything else by this author. Overall....just not my cup of tea :)
