Tea Party Tuesday Review of THE CEMETERY CLUB by Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess





Won't you join me for a nice cup of tea? Please help yourself to some refreshments, too.
Lately, recreational reading has re-entered my life for reasons I may choose discuss someday. But not today. One book worth telling you about was "The Cemetery Club" by Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess.
There was nothing I didn't like about this cozy mystery. From the gruesome discovery of  the body under a pile of brush, which gave me chills, to escaping the bad guys, this book held my attention until the end. If you like a great story with  a sprinkling of Oklahoma history and heart, read "The Cemetery Club." Here is a link to the series:

  2. Nancy Jill, I absolutely love the photo of the afternoon tea and the gorgeous petit fours and dishes. We have a lot in common!

    Lin above mentioned chocolate tea. I'm unfamiliar with chocolate tea. What is it? Thank you.

    1. Susan - my granddaughter is making me some chocolate tea. It's Guayaki Brand Yerba Mate Mate Chocolate. I'll let you know how I like it.

    2. Well, I couldn't taste the chocolate. It was more like cinnamon, but still pretty good. However, I prefer Lady Gray and more traditional teas.

      Cheers!

  3. Susan, Lin may have invented it. Sounds lovely, though!

  4. Nancy Jill, there was a beautiful tea house in a Victorian home my friends and I used to frequent quite often with gorgeous dining rooms, beautiful tables, chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, etc. We used to sit by a window overlooking a beautiful garden. I described this place in The Ginseng Conspiracy although in the book it is a patisserie. Unfortunately the tea house closed. Now we have teas at our homes once in a while.

    1. Most tea shops are difficult to keep open. That's why I like these virtual ones.

      Cheers!
