Welcome to the coziest, vampire-owned tea room in Bath! It’s steeped in magic and mystery.
You’d expect serving afternoon tea to a high-society ladies club to go smoothly, right?
Newbie witch and marketing whiz Minnie Wells thought so. She’s in need of some smooth sailing, considering her plate is full with magic lessons, marketing the tea room, and navigating a divorce during the most romantic time of the year. But the women’s “Galentine’s” Day celebration is thrown into chaos when their event coordinator is stabbed in the back with a pink stiletto.
Now her handsome boss (who Minnie might have a little crush on) is in hot water with the vampire council and the group’s down a guide.
When Minnie’s offered the position for the weekend, she eagerly agrees to show the women around the gorgeous city of Bath. Not only to make some extra cash so she and her black cat can stop crashing on her vampire bestie’s couch, but also because she’ll get an an all-access pass to snoop out the killer and clear her boss’s name.
When another body turns up though, Minnie suspects she may be in over her head!
Will Minnie figure out who’s got it out for these upper class ladies and save her boss from the vampire council’s wrath? Or will the killer tire of Minnie’s meddling, and have a score to kettle?
This is the second book in the Vampire Tea Room Magical Mystery series by Erin Johnson.
Minnie is back and a new death has come knocking at the door of Fitz’s Butler’s restaurant in Bath. Amanda, a Jane Austen Tour Guide is found murdered outside the restaurant with a stiletto shoe shoved in her back. This murder has consequences for Fitz when he is called to the Vampire Council to plead his case. Too many murders have happened in Fitz’s restaurant and his sire wants to bring him back to “the nest” due to his insolence. Minnie promises to find the real killer putting herself and her pretty little heck in danger if she doesn’t succeed.
These books are easy to read and very addicting. I look forward to learning more about Minnie, Gus, Fitz and DC Prescott with each book. The characters are more rounded out now and I understand their motivations a little better. Book three is definitely on my must read list.
You cam read this book for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription but I had bought this book via the Kindle store earlier in the year.
