Murder in a Teacup: 11/03/21
Murder in a Teacup by Vicki Delany is the second of the Tea by the Sea mysteries. Rose's dear friend Sandra is visiting but her visit has turned into a messy family reunion. Then her son in law, Ed French, dies after a trip to the hospital. Suspicion falls on the Tea by the Sea even though he had been drinking his own brew.
Rose is turning out to be this series' Pish (see the Merry Muffin series by Victoria Hamilton. Rose has friends who bring trouble to her B&B and into Lily's life. Lily loves her grandmother but she's also forced to clean up all her messes.
Ed's death is the first of a string of bad things that happen during the visit. It's one of those murders that if the murderer had just stopped and managed to keep the rest of the family under control, they would have gotten away with it. But actions add up and lead to more evidence.
