Jan Blake and Elaine Cook have investigated many baffling mysteries since opening Tea for Two, and now the spotlight of suspicion is turned on them! The cousins visit Sylvia’s Closet for some unique accessories, and when a valuable collection of vintage brooches is found missing after their visit, the finger of blame points squarely at them— especially when all but one unique piece is discovered in their trash can. And Jan places herself under particular scrutiny after making a regrettable promise of secrecy that drives a wedge between her and Elaine. Who’s behind the theft? And could the strange man Jan saw hanging around outside Sylvia’s Closet be involved? Meanwhile, the cousins’ beloved stray cat, Earl Grey, is missing. Has something happened to their furry friend or has he merely decided to leave the tearoom for greener pastures?

Titles in Tearoom Mysteries
Tearoom for Two (Book 1)
Inspired by their grandmother, cousins Elaine and Jan decide to open Tea for Two, a lakeside tearoom where they can serve up cups of comfort to their patrons. When they buy a teapot at a flea market, the dealer tries to buy it back, and then a woman starts snooping around their house. Is she after the teapot, or the elegant piece of jewelry the electrician found in a wall? Then a would be thief nearly gets away with stealing their property from a restorer’s shop. When Elaine is threatened by a midnight burglar, it’s time for extreme action. Determined to make a success of their venture, the cousins press on in faith, uncovering many surprises and family secrets as they settle into the community and grow their new business together.
Tea Rose (Book 2)
Rose Young, a waitress at Tea for Two, comes to Elaine and Jan in distress. Her mother died recently, and in cleaning out her house, Rose found a death certificate — for herself. The document says she died when she was a year old. Rose knows very little about her mother’s past; and this death certificate suggests that events at the beginning of Rose’s life were even more mysterious. She doesn’t feel she can truly lay her mother to rest without understanding what happened decades ago. What could this death certificate mean? What happened when Rose was a year old — and what part did her mother play in it? It takes all of the cousins’ combined skills to sort out this confusing and eerie puzzle.
To a Tea (Book 3)

She doesn’t know where he went. He won’t answer either her or his bride-to-be’s phone calls, and the wedding is only a week away! Willa begs Jan and Elaine to help find her son before the big day. The cousins set out to discover: is Ryan simply experiencing cold feet, or is there something — or someone — more dangerous at work?
