The first book in a delightful new beachside cozy mystery series! Trouble is brewing in Everly's new caf. Can she bag the culprit? Life hasn't been so sweet for Everly Swan over the past couple of years, but now that she is back in her seaside hometown and the proud owner of a little iced tea shop and caf right on the beach, things are finally starting to look upuntil a curmudgeonly customer turns up dead on the boardwalk. With one of her hallmark glass tea jars lying right next to him and an autopsy that reports poison in his system, it doesn't look good for Everly or her brand new business. As the townspeople of Charm, formerly so welcoming and homey, turn their back on Everly, she fights to dig up clues about who could have had it in for the former town councilman. With a maddeningly handsome detective discouraging her from uncovering leads and a series of anonymous attacks on Everly and her business, it will take everything she's got to keep this mystery from boiling over.

Such good fun! I loved the community of Charm, Everly and Grady‘s will they won‘t they vibe, and the Swan family history. Will read #2….. once I‘m done with these. 🙃

Another round of storms in BC. Nothing for the day but to stay as cozy as possible. This delightful series starter helps.

ShyBookOwl Sounds perfect, given the circumstances. 1w

I won these books from attending a virtual Halloween party sponsored by @Sourcebooks !

The authors attended, there were break out rooms with games and a lot of fun packed into 90 minutes! I am looking forward to reading all of these books especially after meeting the authors.

This is a promising start to a cute cozy mystery series. North Carolina beach town setting, a likeable main character who owns a charming tea shop by the beach, and nice pacing of the story..I enjoyed it all. Sweet teas/iced teas are not my top favourite beverage, but I learnt that American Southerners swear by their traditional sweet ice tea! I‘m happy to read the next book and am loving these cozy mysteries puns! 😁

SamanthaMarie Having moved to the south 5 years ago, I can confirm the love for sweet tea that southerners have haha! :) I am adding this to my TBR (: 1y
OriginalCyn620 I‘m from the South, born and raised, and yes, we take our sweet tea very seriously. It‘s an art form here! 😂 1y
erzascarletbookgasm I‘m really enjoying these cozy mysteries, Cathy...light, fun, addictive. 😊 But I‘m neglecting my other challenges 😐 @Cathythoughts 1y
tracey38 Gonna add this to my list! Sounds right up my alley and love that it takes place here in NC. 1y

quietjenn @Kaylamburson oh, ha, interesting point! I think pen names are pretty common in the world of cozies and I could see someone opting for one that matches their books a bit. 2y
Kaylamburson You're probably right! But sometimes I feel like people have a last name that matches their occupation. Like a self-fulfilling prophecy lol 2y
quietjenn @Kaylamburson yes, I love those stories! 2y

Book 12 #cozyinthesun @Librarybelle @ferskner this book had a wonderful setting of an iced tea shop on a North Carolina beach. This is my favorite cozy so far this month. Perfect beach read. And you will want to make a giant pitcher of sweet Peach tea before you start reading.

Librarybelle Yay! I may have to bump this one closer to the top of the tbr pile! 2y
ferskner An iced tea shop!? Cozies have thought of everything! 2y

Great title, shame I couldn‘t finish the book. Got to 20% and was so exasperated with it that I just gave up and skipped to the end and read the last 10%. Hey ho. My search for a new cozy crime series to glom continues.

A wonderful start to a new cozy mystery series. A prickly customer is found dead at Everly Swan‘s beach front tea shop. It‘s assumed her tea was poisoned. Swan is determined to prove her innocence and find the real killer. I can‘t wait to read the next book in the series. ☕️ 🏝 🐦 🐱🐚
