In this charming new cozy mystery series from nationally bestselling author, Vicki Delany, a New York City expat-turned-Cape Cod tea shop owner must solve the murder of a local real estate developer to help her feisty grandmother out of a jam . . .
As the proud proprietor and head pastry chef of Tea by the Sea, a traditional English tearoom on the picturesque bluffs of Cape Cod, Roberts has her hands full, often literally. But nothing keeps her busier than steering her sassy grandmother, Rose, away from trouble. Rose operates the grand old Victorian B & B adjacent to Lily’s tea shop . . . for now. An aggressive real estate developer, Jack Ford, is pushing hard to rezone nearby land, with an eye toward building a sprawling golf resort, which would drive Rose and Lily out of business.
Tempers are already steaming, but things really get sticky when Ford is found dead at the foot of Rose’s property and the police think she had something to do with his dramatic demise. Lily can’t let her grandmother get burned by a false murder charge. So she starts her own investigation and discovers Ford’s been brewing bad blood all over town, from his jilted lover to his trophy wife to his shady business partners. Now, it’s down to Lily to stir up some clues, sift through the suspects, and uncover the real killer before Rose is left holding the tea bag.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Fantabulous start to a new series by Delaney. Set in Cape Cod with ocean views and small town living we meet Lily. She runs her own adorable tea house on her grandma's property in an old cottage while she lives in another one. As well as that she cooks breakfast for grandma's B&B. Grandma Rose is a hoot and half. She has no problem speaking exactly what she has on her mind with no fact it interest in others. This makes for hilarious interactions. This especially causes problems when she goes off on the people wanting to renovate a neighboring property into a big hotel/resort. This wouldn't be an issue but one of them ends up dead on Rose's property making her the prime suspect in his murder. Lily has to clear her name to save both businesses but gran sure doesn't make things easy. This makes for a fantastic book as it all comes together. You won't want to stop reading u til you but the very end. A must read for cozy fans that includes a culinary theme to it. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
