Rachel has inherited her grandmother’s massive teapot collection. As she carefully unpacks each pot, washes it and puts it on display, her best friend, Lily, joins her and they discuss the merits of tea, something neither has really enjoyed, let alone made. With some research and some specialty tea purchased at a unique tearoom, the young women experiment, choosing the charming Blue Willow teapot for their first tea time adventure. Little did they know that drinking tea from one of Rachel’s grandmother’s teapots would transport them to a different time and place. As they clue into the why’s and how’s, the two become more adventurous with each new pot of tea, taking care to ensure they have the means to return to their own time and place. With a lot of adventure, excitement, mystery and some romance added to the mix, the two young ladies share what good friends are meant to share: good times together and a good cup of tea.
Ramona Fields’s novel, A Tea Time Traveler: The Mystery of Granny’s Teapots, is an exciting cozy mystery mixed with time travel, romance, and, of course, a good cup of tea. The true art in a good cup of tea is hidden in the pot, preferably a charming china teapot. The tea must be brewed just right and ritually shared with someone special: a friend. The plot develops steadily with each new adventure intensifying the mystery and leading the young women (or sometimes it’s just Rachel) to the verge of some pretty precarious situations. The characters are portrayed realistically, the teapots are described with elegant care, and the setting invites the reader in to enjoy the adventures of tea time traveling. A pleasant read.
