Daisy and her Aunt Iris own Daisy’s Tea Garden in rural Willow’s Creek, Pennsylvania. They do catering jobs on the side. Little do they know that, instead of Apple Gingerbread, they would soon be serving up Murder with Clotted Cream.
Former actress Margaret has returned to her home town with her millionaire husband and started a theater. The local artists and crew resent their NYC co-workers. The playwright is incensed with Margaret taking full control as the Director of the play. Margaret hires Daisy to provide a high tea to encourage teamwork among her staff. The tea is running well until Margaret is found dead, covered in clotted cream.
Daisy gets pulled in, along with her ex-detective boyfriend, to help with the investigation. Daisy already has her hands full with family issues from birth mama drama to post-natal depression to PTSD. And don’t forget running her tea shop and catering business. I’m exhausted just thinking about all of it! Exhausted and entertained!
This is my first foray into Daisy’s hectic life. And there are a lot of plots within Murder with Clotted Cream. It probably would have been easier to start with book one. However, this book can be read as a standalone too. For this book alone, 4 stars!
Thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
