Cousins Elaine Cook and Jan Blake are ready for a new season in their lives. Together, they purchase a lakeside Queen Anne-style house in Maine and, following in their grandmothers footsteps, convert part of the house into a tearoom. Expecting their new life to be quiet and uneventful, they're surprised to find themselves drawn into baffling mysteries.
When they buy an unusual teapot for a song at a flea market, the dealer desperately tries to buy it back. And then a woman starts snooping around their house. Is she after the teapot or the sapphire ring the cousins found inside the wall?
When Elaine is threatened by a midnight burglar, they must spring into action, using their wisdom, deductive skills, and a dose of prayer to get to the truth behind the mysterious happenings. Undaunted and determined to make a success of their venture, they discover they're as good at uncovering the truth as they are at serving tea.
Tearoom for Two is the very first book in the Tearoom Mysteries series.
This was a fun book. The mystery wasn’t too mysterious, but it was still good. Tearoom for Two is about two cousins, Jan and Elaine, who decide to open up a tearoom and they happen to run into a bit of a mystery. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
This is a 26 book series and it is about the same characters, but the books are written by different authors. This first book isn't quite as good as some of the others in the series, but it's still fun and a nice start to the series.
