Mr. Tea & the Traveling Teacup Book Tour
As part of a book tour I'd like to shine a spotlight on a new book and series: Mr. Tea & the Traveling Teacup is the first in the Madeline's Teahouse Mystery Series. It involves a two sisters reuniting and starting a business together, a possible haunting, a psychic macaw, and more than one mystery!
Here is the official author biography: "Leslie Matthews Stansfield is the author of Mr. Tea & the Traveling Teacup, the first book in the Madeline’s Teahouse series. She is the author of a previous book, Windsor Locks, on the town she lives in. She grew up in Delmar, New York, and credits her friends with developing her imagination. Leslie is a graduate of University of Hartford and recently received her Masters’ degree from the University of Phoenix in Educational Leadership. She is a math tutor in a public school as well as the Christian Education Director of her church. She is currently working on her second book in the Madeline’s Teahouse series. She has four children and eight grandchildren and lives in Windsor Locks, Connecticut."
Want more details about the book? Here's a synopsis from the author:
After the death of their mother, sisters Terry and Karen Sutter, turn their childhood home into a teahouse. It’s a dream come true, but the dream begins to resemble a nightmare when teacups start crashing to the floor in the middle of the night. Could the teahouse be haunted? There’s a list of possible ghostly candidates: the prior owner who is rumored to have left behind a buried treasure, two spinster neighbors who disappeared without a trace over forty years ago, or perhaps it’s Terry and Karen’s own mother trying to communicate with them. Karen, the older sister, thinks running a haunted teahouse might be fun, until the sisters come home one night to find the attic stairs covered in a trail of what appears to be blood. Is it a ghost or a warning? The teahouse’s new mascot, a psychic macaw, may provide some unexpected clues, but the sisters will encounter many more surprises before they solve this mystery.
Check out the book on Amazon. Learn more about Leslie Matthews Stansfield at her Facebook page.
