Three Tainted Teas: 06/21/22
Three Tainted Teas by Lynn Cahoon and Angie Hickman (Narrator) is the third full length mystery in the Kitchen Witch series. Mia has been roped into be the planner at the last minute for a high stakes/high profile wedding. Before Mia can get the contract and other paperwork from the fired planner, the planner is murdered.
Usually I can see the connection between the title and the mystery. This time I can't. There's no tea and nothing tainted. Though there is magic and curses galore, the actual murder is much more plebeian.
This is one of those mysteries where I wish the main character, or any of the others, were more observant. The obvious person is mentioned early and often. This particular person isn't exactly subtle with their actions and yet Mia and the others don't put two and two together until it's almost too late.
