Daisy Swanson and her Aunt Iris run a delightful shop in Pennsylvania’s Amish country with an emphasis on tasty teas and treats—but murder is not so sweet . . .

As local merchants unite to attract tourists for a much anticipated weekend quilting event, business is sure to spill over into eateries like Daisy’s Tea Garden. Gorgeous craftwork is hanging everywhere—but among the quilts, potholders, and placemats, one gallery owner is wrapped up in some dangerous affairs . . .

Reese Masemer had been dating one of Daisy’s employees, Tessa, an artist, though their last interaction was as strained as a cup of loose leaf tea. Now Reese has been found dead near a covered bridge where Tessa’s been practicing her sketches. She’s the obvious suspect, but Daisy’s learning that there were some major secrets in Reese’s background, and several of his relationships were infused with resentment. To save Tessa, she’ll have to find out who’s tainted this quaint little town with murder . . .

Includes delicious recipes!

Just as reading MURDER WITH CINNAMON SCONES may make you a bit hungry, it will involve you in the story with its many well-done characters. Jane Bowers, RRT

MURDER WITH CINNAMON SCONES is enjoyably intriguing at all times. always

From the Author

I grew up in the Susquehanna Valley in Pennsylvania and often made visits to Lancaster County.  This area is rich with history, quilts, unique food, and beautiful hand-crafted furniture.  I chose this setting with the fictional town of Willow Creek for my Daisy’s Tea Garden series. I also wanted to incorporate a sense of family.  My sleuth Daisy is a widow with two teenage daughters.  Daisy and her Aunt Iris are partners in running the tea garden.  I hope you find Daisy’s Tea Garden a cozy place with warmth, soup and baked goods that you want to visit often.  Watch for book 3 in my Daisy series in 2019, Murder With Cucumber Sandwiches.
