A creative plot is found in the second book of the Tea and Read mystery series, however, I felt the book could use editing. The text did not flow easily and often was jerky. There is a definite improvement of the main character, Callie Aspen she did not come across as a ‘know-it-all. She still pushing her friends so they will do any activity Callie’s way.

Callie Aspen has moved back to Heart’s Harbor, Maine to help her great Aunt with the Tea Room.  She becomes involved with the Fourth of July Celebration and looking a feature for it she learns about the 1980’s disappearance of a TV star Monica Walker. She hired a handyman Quinn to do some work on her cottage. With the help of Quinn and Deputy Falk, she begins to look into the case. The editor of the local paper has some new information about Monica’s disappearance but before he tells Callie he is found dead. Twists and turns of the tale will keep your interest as Callie looks to find answers before the Fourth of July. I recommend this book and series.
