Sleuth Callie Aspen wants to light up the Fourth of July
tea party by solving a celebrity's decades-old
disappearance, but her digging results in more fireworks
than she expects.
Last Christmas, Callie Aspen
left her tour guide job and settled in Heart's Harbor,
Maine. Now, she helps out at Book Tea, her great aunt's
vintage tearoom, where each treat has a bookish clue. Though
she's excited to start her new life, Callie worries she may
regret having burned her bridges behind her. Fortunately,
she finds immediate distraction in the preparations for a
spectacular Fourth of July tea party, which will recreate
key moments from the town's rich history.
to learn that 1980s TV star Monica Walker was last seen in
Heart's Harbor before she vanished—allegedly to
elope—Callie probes the townsfolk for information. She's
stunned when several locals share contradictory stories
about the last day before Monica's disappearance. Did she
intend to leave her hit TV series? Was she being stalked by
her ex? And why is the newspaper editor who investigated the
story at the time so anxious about the cold case heating
When one of the talkative townspeople turns up
dead, Callie aims to catch the killer. But it's no picnic:
Deputy Falk doesn't want her meddling, and the locals
suddenly know more about the past than they'd been at
liberty to admit. If Callie and the Book Tea crew can't
crack the case, they'll pay a very steep price in Joy
Avon's explosive second Tea and a Read mystery.
