    Like The Teapot Collecting Mystery Series by Victoria Hamilton, this series is set in the Finger Lakes Region of NYS, and involves a tea shop. This had me confused at first because I was alternately wondering if I'd read the book before, or if it was part of the same series. The answer...

    Ohhhh, boyyy. How is this rated so high? The story was just okay but really so much more time is spent on all these subplots and other characters that the mystery became relegated to the background. Things are rehashed innumerable times! How many times do we really have to hear here th...

    3.5 stars I've read all the books in this series and was looking forward to this one. It started out really good, but it became clear the murder investigation would be taking a backseat to Katie's various issues. The book became repetitive as Katie weighed her options on possibly pu...

    I had a few problems with this book. I'm not sure the reason, I'd need to think about it for awhile, but, I had a difficult time reading the first half of the story. I felt like it was work getting through the mystery. Then suddenly, the second half of the book was much better. I did...

    If the stories of Artisan's Alley and Victoria Square were a regular tv show, I'd give up my soap opera for it! This series has become far more fascinating than most shows; the characters are three-dimensional, the mysteries are mind-boggling, and descriptions of McKinlay Mill, NY and ...

    Sometimes it was quite good but Katie was pretty annoying at times. Also, what was with Margo? That was never explained. And I've never felt that even they were invested in Katie and Andy's relationship. Most of the time when Katie showed a backbone in this book, it was the wrong thing...

    This is a really good series and this book doesn't disappoint. The characters are realistic and the town is one I would visit. The story moved at just the right place and the mystery was not easily solved. It was also nice to see Katie come to terms with her departed husband's mother. ...
