Review: Tempest in a Teapot (Teapot Collector Series #1) by Amanda Cooper

Tucked away in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York is the charming town of Gracious Grove, where time moves slowly, gossip spreads quickly, and the scones are to die for…

When her fashionable Manhattan restaurant goes under, Sophie Taylor retreats to her grandmother’s cozy shop, Auntie Rose’s Victorian Teahouse, where serenity is steeped to perfection in one of her many antique teapots. The last thing Sophie expects is a bustling calendar of teahouse events, like her old friend Cissy Peterson’s upcoming bridal shower.

Not everyone is pleased with the bride-to-be’s choice of venue—like Cissy’s grandmother, who owns a competing establishment, La Belle Epoque, and has held a long-simmering grudge against Rose for stealing her beau sixty years ago. Tensions reach a boiling point when Cissy’s fiancé’s mother dies while sampling scones at La Belle Epoque. Now, to help her friend, Sophie will have to bag a killer before more of the guest list becomes a hit list.

*~*~*~*~* Review *~*~*~*~*

What a great book!  The quaint little town of Gracious Grove was an absolute treat to visit!  I loved the picturesque quality, the homey feel of it, and the people.  The story was creative, the characters were very well written, and they made you feel as if you'd been life long friends.  I loved the mystery, and the teapot theme?  Brilliant!  I love that sharing a cup of tea is so inviting, and plays it's own little role in the story itself.

If you're looking for an amazingly written series by a very talented author, this is a series you'll definitely want to pick up! :) 

Rating:  5 stars 

I received a paperback copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All conclusions reached are my own.
