Review: Murder with Earl Grey Tea by Karen Rose Smith

Murder with Earl Grey Tea is book 9 in Karen Rose Scott’s Daisy’s Tea Garden Mysteries. This is the first book I’ve read in the series, and I found it easy to read as a standalone.

Daisy co-owns a small business, Daisy’s Tea Garden, and has been involved in helping solve several murders previously. This time, the victim hits close to home, when her close friend Lydia is killed and Daisy is the one to find her body.

Daisy is torn between wanting to help find justice for her friend, and turning over a new leaf to stay out of trouble, but somehow she is still drawn into the mystery.

This was a good read, with lots of focus on the relationships between the characters. I really enjoyed the glimpses of life in the Amish community, and their interactions with the rest of the town.

There were a number of red herrings in this story, which made it impossible for me to identify the culprit and their motivation before the end of the book. I will be checking out other books in the series.

Thanks to NetGalley and Kensington books for providing an advanced copy if this book for review purposes.
