Laney Eskridge worked to put her husband through dental school. Then he left with another woman. She’s on edge from the emotional scars and her parents’ deaths. Then she hears unexplained noises in her new tea house, and her anxiety is tripled. Add a budding romance with Eric—a guy with a fear of commitment—and it’s all too much to handle. She cuts ties with Eric and plunges into making her business pay off.
When Eric discovers that Laney’s in danger, he vows to protect her. But can he make a lasting promise? Will she trust him? . . .and when they overhear a threat that could cause national turmoil, will anyone believe them? There’s more brewing than herbal tea in Cooking up a Mystery.

What a fun cozy mystery. This book started off slow but soon picked up and i had to know what was going to happened! I couldn’t figure out the mystery until the very end. The tea house was so cute! Everything she made looked good.
I liked Laney and her tea House. She had a lot going on and trying to make ends need.I liked Eric as well. They’re relationship was fun to watch. It would have been fun to get to know them.
I like how Gail Pamplona uses scripture throughout the story.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

Thank you for putting Cooking up a Mystery on your bookshelf for the Celebrate Lit Tour and thank you for your nice review.
Thank you for coming by. You’re right. It’s a stand alone, but has the ambiance of Hair Calamities and Hot Cash. (:
Hi Izzy, Thank you for coming by to read about Cooking up a Mystery and for your kind comment. It is a stand alone book, but I set Hair Calamities and Hot Cash in the same small town in the North Carolina mountains, and wrote about a woman entrepreneur, Eve, who’s a hairdresser.
Thank you for coming by to read about Cooking up a Mystery and for your nice comments. My publisher created the cover, and I agree, I like it too. (:
This sounds like a un read. Cute cover!
This book looks like a good one. Is it the first in a series or will it be a stand-alone?
It looks like it’s a stand-alone book. Gail Pallotta has written other novels.
