"Tearoom for Two" by Susan Page Davis

About this book:

  “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.”

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ star for those wanting a light mystery.}
This was an interesting light mystery! I didn’t get very into this one, personally, but I found the mentions of the Nanking teapots & china from the Qing dynasty to be very interesting!
Since one of the mysteries wasn’t wrapped up in this book, I’m looking forward to reading the next and see what happens.

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
