Dear Reader,

It's the week before Halloween and teashop owner Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier Drayton attend a "literary themed" haunted house in a dilapidated mansion known as the Gray Ghost. But, halfway through their visit, the guest author is found twisting from a third floor window as purple lights cast flickering images. The police and Theodosia's boyfriend Detective Riley come screaming in but when Riley goes to the dead girl's house he's shot! A murder and a shooting seem too coincidental for Theodosia who throws herself into her own shadow investigation. With pacing, plot twists, and action reminiscent of a thriller (this is a thrillzy!), it's no wonder Book Riot named my Tea Shop Mysteries to their list of "25 of the All Time Best Cozy Mystery Series."

This is one of my most action-packed mysteries yet!
