Goths reenacting Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death" on Halloween night...what could possibly go wrong?
Despite her desire to make the Wisteria Tearoom a haven of tranquility, Ellen Rosings can't rid her parlors of the shadow of death. Fascinated with the tearoom's resident ghost, her customers flock to spirit-tours-with-tea, and to crown all, the office manager and her Goth friends plan a Halloween masquerade recreating a classic horror story.
Between his heavy workload and his fits of jealousy when Ellen looks at anything male, Detective Tony Aragón can't offer her much comfort.
Are the flashes of light she's been seeing some kind of message from the spirit world? Or is it just coincidence when a body turns up where she last saw a gleam?
This cozy mystery is the fifth in the Wisteria Tearoom Mysteries series.

Muertos unfolds around a sumptuous setting, luxurious detail, characters with their own complex realities, and a tightly woven whodunnit. Mystery with atmosphere & tea!
I enjoy the authors description on the beautiful costumes and rooms, was able to get so wrapped up l felt like I was there. However, I agree that the romance portion isnt as satisfying. Most of us would not have the patience for someone who seems to not like her at all! I love every other part of the series and eagerly wait for each to arrive.
I enjoyed this book. I feel that the people need more flesh as well as the stories. More feeling, less tea.
