Sophie has decided to move to her grandma’s in upstate New York after her restaurant fizzles and help her grandma with her tearoom. Next door one time best friend of grandma Rose, Thelma has opened her own tearoom with limited success. While Thelma is hosting an engagement tea for her granddaughter, the future mother in law is murdered. Sophie decides to investigate while getting reacquainted with her summer friends.
I enjoyed this book and want to continue reading the series but I’m sure you are wondering why 3.5 stars? It starts out quick and ends spectacularly but the middle was a tad sluggish. A few times my interest was not there.
Sophie is a very likable character and feels like someone you would run into on the street. She’s caring and doesn’t appear to be hung up on herself. She is just trying to figure out her life after the devastating blow of closing her restaurant.
I am left with one question: what ever happened to the dead mother in law’s cat?
