Tearoom for Two by Susan Page Davis - Review & Giveaway

Tearoom for Two by Susan Page Davis from Guidepost Books
Review by Carrie Fancett Pagels

Susan Page Davis kicks off the Guidepost Books' Tearoom mystery collection

From the Guideposts' website: In Guideposts Books' new series, Tearoom Mysteries, you'll explore a quaint Maine village near picturesque Lake Chickadee and join in the fun of solving mysteries alongside a pair of cousins who frequently find themselves in situations that require perseverance and faith. The series begins with Tearoom for Two and continues with Tea Rose

Various authors continue the story of two fifty-something ladies who set up a tea shop in their home town. 

This is a lovely hardcover book. Guideposts always does their books up so beautifully!  Susan Page Davis is an established author and fan favorite. She pens a sweet but also sinister story set in Maine, where she was raised! I always love it when an author really knows the setting for a book and Susan knows Maine!  I could almost smell the cookies and muffins baking in the shop! This book will make you hungry!

I purchased my book through Guideposts, which is where others can obtain a copy. (click here.)

Giveaway: Very gently used copy of this lovely hardcover book. Leave a comment about your favorite mystery series and why you want to read Susan's story!

  1. Carrie, what a lovely surprise! Thank you for featuring my book. I spent most of my life in a lakeside Maine town much like the one in Tearoom for Two, and this was a labor of love.

  4. The O'Malley Family Series by Dee Henderson has kept me reading mysteries. I devoured Henderson's books. This series sound great! It reminds me of that show Rosemary & Thyme, two friends who use their knowledge of flowers to solve crimes. Thanks for having the giveaway!

  5. CARRIE, thank you for the delightful review! I guess it's no secret how much I love Nancy Mehl's mysteries and also Colleen Coble's. Between my waves of nausea that come and go, I believe I can also smell those muffins you were talking about. Warm cinnamon apple with melted butter. Mmm...

  8. I really don't have a favorite mystery series, although I used to read the Happy Hollister books when I was growing up. One reason I would love to read Susan's book is that the main characters are in their 50s. I love it when the characters are around my age.

  19. Growing up Nancy Drew has always been my favorite. I do enjoy the Love Inspired line of suspense and mystery books. I have read one of Susan's books before and I enjoyed her writing. I am sure this is another wonderful book from her that I would enjoy reading.
