I’m a huge Jeopardy fan (“I was born to be on Jeopardy!” — Thanks White Men Can’t Jump for one of my favorite movie lines). So I had to pick Alex Trebek’s new book for our final July Release Spotlight. The Answer is… will be next on my TBR.
I wanted to come up with something special on Monday’s to start your week off on a good note. What’s more fun than looking forward to a book that comes out this week? So each Monday, I’m going to spotlight a book that’s coming out in the current month.
Preorders are big for authors, so knowing what’s coming out helps you to know what you want to add to your cart (or get a jump on your library waitlist). I’m starting out with my favorite genre, the cozy mystery, but I’m going to try to vary the genres of the books I feature and to promote diversity in your reading life.
July’s first featured book:
Tea and Treachery by Vicki Delany (Release Date 7/28/20)
This is the first in what will be the Tea By the Sea Mysteries series. The series will focus on the owner of the Tea By the Sea tea shop, New York-expat and pastry chef Lily Roberts. When a real estate developer who had been trying to drive Lily and her grandmother Rose (who owns a Victorian B&B) out of business is found dead near Rose’s property, Lily must try to solve the mystery to help Rose get out of trouble.
There are several new cozy mystery series’ starting, so this particular book is a great way to get in on the ground floor. Vicki Delany is a prolific writer, so you can expect regular doses of Lily Roberts and her tea shop.
I have loved tea shop mysteries since I read (most of; still working on) the books in the Laura Childs tea shop series.
Pour your own cup of tea and see if this book fits your taste.
