This is the third in the newer Kitchen Witch Mysteries by another of my fave cozy authors, Lynn Cahoon. I love her other cozy series and have read something in all of them. Actually the only one I’m not caught up in is the Tourist Trap Mysteries. I’ve always found her characters to be like old friends I want to go back and visit when I read one their books. Mia and her crew are definitely like that!
My Goodreads review:
Three Tainted Teas by Lynn Cahoon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mia had her hands really full this time having to step in as a wedding planner (she couldn’t refuse the huge payment she was being offered, who could?) then become a person of interest in a murder.
When Christina’s character was first introduced, I sure never expected to like her as much as I do! She’s just the best when it comes to Mia and the business as well as being a good friend to her. Like Mia, I dread the day when she’s out of culinary school and possibly ready to move on. Or hopefully Mia’s business might do so well, she’ll be able to entice her stay.
Trent’s mom, Abigail’s such a great character! I enjoyed learning more about her and having her in the storyline a lot more than usual. She really saved the day when it came to the wedding cake, and I’m looking forward to her maybe being someone Gran can hang out with. And it sure never hurts for Mia to get to know and work with her sweetie’s mom! 😉
The takedown of the perp was a crazy one! I hadn’t suspected whodunit at first, but the closer it got to the end, I started wondering about this person. As long as Mia picks and chooses her weddings carefully, maybe she really should go into planning weddings for the extra income, who knows? I’m always eager to read the next book and see what new adventures Mia and her friends/crew get into.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
