Watch for the Next Tea Shop Mystery
PEKOE MOST POISON
Eighty years ago, fancy “rat teas” were all the rage in Charleston. Now a society doyenne has revived that quaint custom as a madcap homage to the city's colorful past. Only problem is, a sip of the wrong brew and someone turns up dead. Theodosia may not be to blame, but she certainly won't turn a dim eye to this affront against tea!
And Also the Next Scrapbooking Mystery
Mardi Gras means raucous parades, fantastical floats, and glittering galas. But when a fashion model is murdered, Carmela and Ava ditch their party masks for detective hats.

LITTLE GIRL GONE
AN AFTON TANGLER THRILLER
by Gerry Schmitt
On a frozen night in an affluent Minneapolis neighborhood, a baby is abducted from her home after her babysitter is violently assaulted. The parents are frantic, the police are baffled, and, with the perpetrator already in the wind, the trail is getting colder by the second.
As a family liaison officer with the Minneapolis Police Department, it's Afton Tangler's job to deal with the emotional aftermath of terrible crimesâbut she's never faced a case quite as brutal as this. Each development is more heartbreaking than the last and the only lead is a collection of seemingly unrelated clues.
