Murder at the Fancy Frills Tea Room

A Christian mystery

Authored by Maxine Holmgren
Cover design or artwork by Mark S Fletcher
Edition: 1

Sit back and enjoy a cup of tea as you read this Christian murder mystery.

Emily, co-owner of The Fancy Frills Tea Room and her flamboyant, successful sister, Liz, brew more than tea in this delightful, humorous mystery.

Emily is the bumbling co-owner of the tea room and the first woman deaconess to be appointed at the Riverbend Community Church. Not everyone is happy about the appointment.

Once more, Emily plays Ethel to Liz's Lucy and the sisters are involved in the discovery of a dead body in a deserted mansion. Then, when a second body is found, and it turns out to be someone Emily knows very well, she becomes a prime suspect.

The only man in her life is Arthur, the sophisticated, flirtatious owner of the antique shop next to the Fancy Frills Tea Room. While she longs for romance she shuns this married man's advances.

When Liz matches her up with a handsome,
mysterious man it seemed like answered prayer,
until an older, rich newcomer arrives and she finds
herself attracted to both, but could one be the killer?

Will clumsy Emily trip and fall into the arms
of the wrong man?
