Blog Tour: TEA CUPS AND CARNAGE (A Tourist Trap Mystery) by Lynn Cahoon

Cozy Mystery
7th in Series
Lyrical Underground (June 7, 2016)


The kettle’s about to boil over . . .

The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there’s nothing cozy about murder . . .

Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi’s sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi’s name—without getting herself in hot water.

Jill has her hands full between her Aunt, a missing deposit, a festival, library event, and her business. Enough to keep her busy, but when someone is killed, she can't help but try to figure who did it and how it relates to Kathi, the ex-pageant queen. Greg tries to discourage her and the local seer of sorts tells her not to make any decisions about relationships. There's a wild motorcyclist giving motor clubs a bad name and the cranky antique dealer, and somehow Jill knows these are all connected.

There are subplots and many relationships, with twists and turns, some leading to dead ends. Characters are well developed and I hope there is more story on Toby, Sasha and Nick. Those who like a bit of romance with their mystery will not be disappointed.  Although part of a series, this can be read as a stand alone. 

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
