Penelope Price is new to picturesque Pacific Grove, California.

Late-bloomer Penelope Price is finally coming into her own. But as she takes control of her new AntiquiTeas business, she loses control of her heart and good sense. Add to the mix a failed burglary, a secret safe, and a dead body, and Penelope finds herself steeped in mystery.

Book Three
Objets d'Artifice

Penelope Price has finally settled into a pleasant rhythm as proprietress of Antiquiteas in 1920s Pacific Grove, CA. Not only is business good, but she's found love with a wonderful man—that is until the past rears its accusatory head, threatening to derail all they've worked toward. And then of course there is the matter of that dead body. The third book in the Tea Cozy Mysteries series follows the evolving lives of the Tea & Sympathy Investigative Agency ladies, for better or worse, richer or poorer, in health and death.
