Joy Avon’s festive series debut featuring a book-themed
tea party organizer will be tons of fun this Christmas for
Lorna Barrett and Jenn McKinlay fans.
In the run-up to Christmas Eve, organizer of book-themed
tea parties Callie Aspen and her lovable Boston terrier will
have to conquer threefold trouble—a mysterious will, a
missing heirloom and a dead body—to restore the festive
spirit to their small town.
This Christmas, Callie Aspen returns to her childhood
hideout Heart's Harbor, Maine where her great aunt runs Book
Tea, a vintage tearoom where every sweet treat contains a
bookish clue. Upon arrival in the fairy-tale snowy town,
Callie is drawn into the preparations for a special tea
party at Haywood Hall, the rambling house of Heart's
Harbor's oldest resident, rich but lonely widow Dorothea
Finster, who invited her estranged relatives, old friends
and the elite of the town to make a mysterious announcement
about her will.
Believing they can touch a part of her fortune, everybody is
determined to come, despite not liking each other or even
their hostess. And Callie's old friend Sheila complicates
things by using the tea party to announce her daughter's
engagement, even though her daughter isn't sure she's in
love with the young lawyer her mother thinks so perfect for her.
Catering to people who each have their own agenda isn't easy
for the Book Tea crew, especially once the valuable
engagement ring goes missing and a dead body turns up in the
conservatory. Can Callie and her great aunt use their love
of clues to dig into the crimes and show their unhappy
hostess and squabbling guests the true Christmas spirit?
