On My Table And In My Cup April 30- May 7th

What a week it has been. Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a cozy mystery this week. I have had some amazing titles on my table this week as well as many cups of wonderful tea. This week I pulled out a favorite black tea called Fuzzy Peaches that I bought from Steeped Tea, I don't think they have this one anymore but it is a favorite. I have had a pot each afternoon this week and it tastes like the summer fruit I am so looking forward too.
Vicki Vass sent me two of her up coming books Killer finds and Gem Hunter, this week, they arrived on Thursday and I am halfway through Killer Finds. I love the Antique Hunter Mystery series and book three has some wonderful surprises, a few mysteries and the worlds best next door neighbor!
It is surreal to even write these words but Jim has gone to join Joyce, the sudden passing of the second half of the most incredible writing duo has me still in shock, my heart goes out to their family and the entire community. The re-release of The Last To Remember book 3 was outstanding. Truly amazing to have this on my table this week and this photo I took Thursday morning has the cup I used most often when I am thinking of Joyce, it is purple,delicate and ornate, and reminds me of her and our short but important friendship. Joyce and Jim were mentors of mine and I have such respect for them. Please keep their family in your thoughts and your prayers.
I finished Irish Stewed this week and have a review coming out for you later this month, I will tell you that I enjoyed this first in series and look forward to seeing the next Ethnic Eats Mystery soon!
Not a cozy but a very cool book coming out this summer, The Witches Mirror by Mickie Mueller, has an amazing cover and is another book I have been sent to review but will buy in paper back truly an interesting and historical look at mirrors in magic and witch craft. My review will be up Sunday.
I have also pre written a review of Caroyln Hart's Don't Go Home as well as
finished and pre written the review for Seams Like Murder by Betty Hechtman, both these reviews will be up later this month as well.
My TBR pile is slowly winding down and at the moment I think I have 7 to go before the end of the month. So I shall leave you here to enjoy your Saturday while I continue to tackle the books, between baseball, yard sales, free comic book day and whatever else I may have forgotten about that is on the calendar this weekend.
Thank you for joining me this weekend for a cup of tea and a week in review. I look forward to sharing more reviews, crafts, tea and more with you again soon! As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at

  1. Thanks for your week in review and for catching us up on what's happening in your life. Sounds like you have a very busy weekend planned. And I agree that it is such a tragedy about Jim Lavene, but he has been reunited with his love. Thanks for sharing your post.
