@Download Book ⚛ Death by Tea (Bookstore Cafe Mystery, #2) â eBook or E-pub free

it was a good mystery with some really interesting characters and the setting wasn t bad either a bookstore coffee shop owned by the daughter of mystery writer Krissy was a good sleuth, and reminded me of the Hardy Boys books I read in my teen and pre teen years Krissy being the daughter of a famous mystery writer who enjoys solving a good mystery, even in her thirties I did enjoy to see her sleuthing around for clues, and eavesdropping on people s conversations I will draw the line at asking her police officer boyfriend to break in and see the crime scene that wouldn t happen, if there was a police investigation into the victim s death Chrissy would be at a sideline in the investigation,butt I really did enjoy seeing her investigate it like a puzzle she does or a mystery novel she reads In the end it kind of give her the inspiration to write her own Mysteries The mystery itself with was interesting to read and solve in the end finding out the motive for murder and all that it really challenge me to figure out who the killer was and why they did it. Death by Tea by Alex Erickson is the second book in A Bookstore Caf Mystery series Krissy Hancock is part owner in Death by Coffee named after a book by her father, James Hancock with her best friend, Vicki Patterson in Pine Hills Rita Jablonski a big fan of James Hancock has decided to move the Pines Hills and Cherry Valley Book Club Competition to Death by Coffee A beautiful silver teapot is the prize They are a vocal group, but it will bring business into the store But then one of the Cherry Hill members, David Smith, ends up dead inside Death by Coffee Krissy is a suspect thanks to her late night activities taking a cardboard cutout of her father out of the store that belongs to Rita Krissy sets out to prove her innocence and she will do whatever it takes She will have to evade Officer Buchanan who is determined to put her in jail he just does not like her and her very nosy neighbor, Eleanor Withrow I was hoping that Death by Tea would be better than the first book in the series Unfortunately, I was disappointed I think it was worse Krissy is just not a likable character The story is written in the first person so we get to hear all her ramblings and nonsense She likes Officer Paul Dalton with the Pine Hills police department and does not understand why he does not call this goes on throughout the whole book The mystery was secondary in the novel to Krissy s life she would forget what she was saying or doing when a handsome man was present We get to hear about her awful cat, Misfit who destroys furniture , than about the mystery When Krissy questions or interrogates people she is not very polite actually can be rude and pushy It is like she feels she is entitled to get the answers she wants even though the people have no reason to talk to her Krissy rushes into situations frequently without thinking things through leading to embarrassing moments for her and the person she accuses I give Death by Tea 2.75 out of 5 stars As you can tell, I am not a fan of this novel The mystery was extremely easy to solve despite the attempts of the author to mislead the readers One clue was the key to solving the mystery I received a complimentary copy of Death by Tea from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.http bibliophileandavidreader.blogs @Download Book ï Death by Tea (Bookstore Cafe Mystery, #2) ß Mystery Lovers Have Descended On Pine Hills For This Year S Book Club Competition, To Be Held At Krissy Hancock S Bookstore Cafe But The Killer In Their Midst Seems Determined To Outwit All The Armchair Sleuths And Send Krissy To The Remainder Bin Forever Just Before Two Dueling Book Clubs Are Set To Square Off At Death By Coffee, One Of The Competitors Turns Up Dead Bludgeoned With The Silver Teapot That Was To Serve As The Prize Suspicion Immediately Falls On Krissy, Who Was Seen Skulking Around Town In Dark Clothes On The Night Of The Murder To Clear Her Name And Find The Real Killer, Krissy Turns To An Old Flame, Officer Paul Dalton But Even Paul Can T Ignore The Trail Of Evidence That Seems To Point In Her Direction And With Krissy S Personal Nemesis, Officer John Buchannan, Working Overtime To Pin The Murder On Her, It Will Take An Amazing Feat Of Detective Work To Close The Book For Good On An Elusive Killer I was really looking forward to reading this book and am truly disappointed that the story was not what I hoped it would be As a devoted cozy mystery lover, the title and description of the book seemed like a perfect fit Unfortunately, the story was far from realistic, the main character, Krissy was unlikable and the plot just seemed very confusing I didn t understand the concept the author was trying to achieve and was not at all intrigued at any point in the story I give this story 1 star.I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and honest review. A mystery book club competition is taking place at Krissy s coffee shop One of the club members is found dead in the shop and suspicion falls on her Krissy needs to investigate to try and clear her name but the police want her to stay away from the other team members She is also worried about the financial state of her shop and whether she needs to be concerned It was a nice easy cosy mystery read and I would be keen to read in this series.With many thanks to Net Galley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is another one of those cozy s where the main character is TSTL too stupid to live Between her nonsense about her make believe love life for one of the officers on the case and her gosh awful destructive cat, the mystery disappeared Maybe she has ADHD because she couldn t keep a coherent thought in her head for very long Nobody in town escaped her often rude interrogations How her business managed to survive with her out running willy nilly is only thanks to her employees A little less cat and less incessant insipid inner dialogue would greatly improve this series. The mystery in this one is not satisfying at all I thought the characters were presented well, perhaps a little too much I found the protagonist to be irritating because she knew she was being foolish, but did the things she did anyway Still, I wouldn t mind reading another book IF time allows just to see how things end up for her And, truthfully, if I had a cat as horrible as hers, it would be put down ASAP. When I saw this book up for grabs on Netgalley, I knew I had to try to get it Coffee Murders Bookclub competitions It was a recipe for success I love cozies with quirky titles and quirky heroines, with quirky odd ball crimes However, I was mildly disappointed with this one.It definitely had the quirky crime, a man bludgeoned to death by a silver teapot trophy for a book club competition It also had the quirky title Death by Tea get it The guy was killed by a teapot in a caf called Death by Coffee Get It The quirky heroine This small ingredient fell flat What might have been considered quirky in Krissy s tenacity and tendency for trouble merely left her somewhat obnoxious, high handed, and prone to the jumping of conclusions that always left her embarrassed, and wrong Then when all is said and done, very rarely, does she really take the blame for mistakes It is always if only that person hadn t done that The mystery to the murder had so many red herrings that when the crime was solved I wasn t shocked or bewildered I merely felt confused and somewhat giped of a cool ending I m not sure I will continue the series Although it was a decent cozy, I just didn t fee any connection.I received this novel for free from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. It has all the elements of a cozy mystery a tea coffee shop, a cat, a small town where every store seems to have a cutesy name, and characters but didn t quite make it.Krissy runs Death By Coffee, a bookstore coffee shop apparently named after her mystery writing father s most well known novel, so when a book club meets for discussion she doesn t think much of it Then the rival team appears, and before long, there s been a murder Honestly, that s not a spoiler Naturally Krissy feels she has to investigate, and thus the story really begins.But if ever a book screamed, Leave it to the professionals and Just quit already , this was it I found myself incredibly frustrated with Krissy, amazed at how everyone just seemed happy to spill secrets to her at a second s notice, and generally incredulous Give this one a miss.Disclaimer I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I recently went on a cozy mystery buying binge, and downloaded a heap of titles to tide me over when I was low on them I d read later books in this series, and it hadn t impacted my opinion on them falling straight in the deep end This was good though, going back early on in this series and seeing how it developed Krissy is still not the greatest character, and this book made me wonder a little how she lives as long as she does in order to create mysteries books She doesn t have ANY self preservation in this one at all Still though, I enjoyed the mystery even if it was a little darker than I normally like my cozies Definitely still enjoying this series and looking forward to the newwest book too Four stars.
