THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!
It is Christmas time in Heart's Harbor, Maine and Callie Aspen, the protagonist has returned to childhood home for holidays. This is the first book in a new series a Tea Book Mystery and a new author for me. The story grabbed my attention from the first page and didn't let go until I finished. Her Great-aunt has Callie take the cake and other supplies to Haywood Hall for tea party given by Dorothy Finster who plans to read her new will. All invited want or need the money every one believes that she had. The party did not go very well as several persons had the end agenda. A body is found in Conservatory. A plan for a surprise engagement goes wrong. A piece of jewelry goes missing. Callie becomes involved with the homicide detective and his two nephews. Callie finds trouble wherever she went and managed to straighten every event to the point I started to dislike her. I highly recommend this book.
