Death is on the menu: With the Wedding Killer behind bars, the witchy Beatrice Knight Timmons is able to focus on managing The Cozy Tea Shoppe. But when the African God of Death pays her a visit after losing his throne, danger is back on the menu. All decorum is thrown out with the tea leaves as the line between the living and the dead gets thinner with the passing of every full moon. Only Miss Knight can persuade the powers-that-be to reinstate Death and the circle of life. But everyone has their own agenda, and time is running out. While the small colonial town of Nairobi is used to all manner of monsters and mayhem, this latest debacle might need more than a pot of tea to endure it.
This is the second case in the "Cozy Tea Shoppe Mystery" series, where Jane Austen meets Lara Croft in colonial Africa. Tea isn't the only thing that's brewing in the delicious sequel to the "Society for Paranormals" series. Join supernatural detective Miss Knight as she attempts to keep the kettle hot and her customers satisfied (or at least alive) while dodging murder, mayhem and other inconveniences. Serving tea has never been more dangerous.

urban-fantasy, paranormal, historical-fiction, were-folk, ghosts, sly-humor, Africa, Kenya Another marvelous book by one of my favorite authors, one that stretches my imagination in very good ways. Meet the African god of death, a ginormous spider who can spin a silk rope to reach the Sky, the god of lightning, Bea's flying horse, and lots more fascinating characters, all set in Victorian Nairobi. Great fun with a side order of education, it seems like each new book is my favorite until the next one arrives! As for the plot, the publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers here. Enjoy!
