Just in time for the holidays, In Cold Chamomile is sure to be a cupid´s arrow aimed straight for your bookshelf.
Tea party organizer Callie Aspen learns that Cupid´s arrows can be deadly when a Valentine´s Day soiree ends in murder.
Callie Aspen can´t think of a more appropriate place to spend Valentine´s Day than her adopted hometown of Heart´s Harbor, Maine. When she´s not helping out at Book Tea, her great-aunt Iphy´s vintage tearoom, Callie´s adorning Haywood Hall with hearts and roses for the big Valentine´s event, where townspeople will fall in love with sweet treats, heartwarming music, and delightful books. But tension is brewing: The librarian argues with the expert who is on hand to appraise precious volumes. And Iphy is shocked to recognize the baritone who´s slated to sing at the event as an old acquaintance--one she´d hoped she´d never meet again. And then, when a dead body is discovered, the stirring spoon of suspicion points at the many people who had reasons to want the victim dead.
When Iphy´s old acquaintance draws the attention of Deputy Ace Falk, Callie finds herself in a spot. Ace, as usual, doesn´t want Callie involved, but how can she ignore Iphy´s anguish over the fate of a man she cares for more than she will admit? Bringing the killer to justice may endanger Callie´s budding relationship with Ace--and, quite possibly, her own life.
Callie and the Book Tea crew may think they have this case in the bag, but un-kettling truths are yet to be decanted.
