Tea, tarot, and trouble.

Abigail Beanblossom's dream of owning a tea room in her California beach town is about to come true. She's got the lease, the start-up funds, and the recipes. But Abigail's out of a tearoom and into hot water when the realtor turns out to be a conman... and then turns up dead.

But not even death puts an end to the conman's mischief. He rented the same space to a tarot reader, Hyperion Night. Convinced his tarot room is in the cards, Night's not letting go of the building without a fight. Steamed, Abigail realizes the only way to salvage her tea room is to join forces with the tarot reader, even if he isn't her cup of tea.

But they must work together, steeping themselves in the murky waters of the sham realtor's double dealings, in order to unearth the truth – before murder boils over again.

I loved this cozy mystery with tea-seller extraordinaire Abigail Beanblossom and tarot reader Hyperion Night. As you can tell by the names, the characters in this story are wonderfully quirky. This is a complex murder mystery that also encompasses fun, drama, friendship, family, and baking. A fabulous start to a new series. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Delightful characters and a complex mystery. STEEPED IN MURDER by Kirsten Weiss The First Tea and Tarot Mystery Abigail Beanblossom's dream is about to come true. She paid her realtor 6 months rent in advance for the perfect building and is about to open her own tearoom. She has interior designs in mind and a business plan all set. What she didn't account for was the fact that her realtor was a con artist who had also rented the building to Hyperion Night, a tarot reader. Before matters can be straightened out they find the realtor dead behind their building, murdered. As Abigail tries to get her money back she finds herself teaming up with Hyperion. Will they get their money? Will either of them be able to get the building? Or will they find themselves victims of murder instead of just a con? Tea and tarot are two of my favorite things, so when I discovered that Kirsten Weiss was writing a series combining the two I was elated. The first Tea and Tarot Mystery did not disappoint. I admit that some of it was a bit over the top. With main characters are named Abigail Beanblossom and Hyperion Night that's to be expected! Hyperion is a bit campy and the lead detective is an overt germophobe. In fact most of the characters are a bit high on the excitable scale...the other victims of the con artist take drama to high art! But it works. They are fun, funny, yet still relatable. Deep down they are caring people facing real issues. Trust, abandonment, compromise, and the ability to have an open mind are just some of the themes dealt with here. The author's knowledge of the tarot shines through adding depth and meaning instead of using it as a gimmick. I love Abby's tea blends and the description of scones had me drooling. I wish I could go to their shop, sip some sage and spearmint tea, nibble an almond and apricot scone, and have Hyperion give me a reading. Since I can't visit them personally, I was thrilled to find recipes included at the end! I may get that scone after all! STEEPED IN MURDER is a fun start to a new series. Delightful characters and a complex mystery provide plenty of laughs and a good puzzle for readers to enjoy. FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me an e-copy of this book in the hopes I would review it.
