This book is about two sisters, Cara and Teagan. They are part of a large Irish family of eight children, and while we hear about the other siblings the story revolves around these two.

Cara has quit her job and is trying to find a new career. The story starts with her deciding to solve a murder to collect the reward money and goes through a series of decisions that are a little bit zany. The internal dialogue of Cara had me laughing so hard I had tears running down my face. Maybe that says I am a little zany as well :).

I have also just finished reading Hot Tea (The Tea Series) and immediately upon finishing bought the third in the series Iced Tea (Tea Series). I am really enjoying this series and look forward to more of Cara and Teagan.

I enjoyed this very much. I have already purchased the 2nd and 3rd. I have only read the first installment. A mystery has been outlined, but not solved. Longer than a short story, maybe more of a novella with a definite "to be continued....." feeling. Though not, thankfully, a cliffhanger. The observations and family relations of the main character make this fun.

Would have appreciated knowing that you have to buy ALL of the books in order to get the full story (I'm guessing it will eventually get to the conclusion, though the next book isn't out yet and who knows how many you'll have to buy in order to get to the end). I think it is a very sleazy tactic to require readers to buy more books just to see how the story ends. Should have been better edited, too. Too many typos and bad spelling. Characters ALMOST interesting, but fall way short and the plot is not at all convincing. It only cost $0.99 per book, but it isn't worth it.

Readers should be aware that this is not really a stand-alone book. It's really only the first chapter of a longer story. The book sets you up for a mystery, but at the end there's no resolution, and the reader is left hanging. Apparently you have to buy the remaining books in the series to find out what the real mystery is and how it's resolved. Unfortunately the story itself didn't interest me enough to want to do that. The same scene/theme is played over and over (the main characters sister is sooooo much more attractive than she is, they come from a large Italian family, blah, blah, blah - enough already, I get it!) and the "banter" between the sisters really becomes tiresome. How about some actual dialogue?? I would only read the remaining books if they were free.

It's still true: you get what you pay for. This book is little more than endless bickering between two sisters. It is light-hearted, but there is absolutely no story here. The book has no definition, no beginning, middle and end. There are too many good books out there. Don't waste your time with this one. And BTW, it's not a mystery.

Always on the look-out for a new female sleuth, I thought I would give this new series a try. After wading through cliche after cliche, and never-ending silliness, I came to the end of this so-called story. This is not a story but a sketch. It ends abruptly with no progress in what promised to be a mystery. I actually thought the book was flawed when it ended with a pot of tea and no story progression.

I have now read all 5 of Sheila Horgan's Tea series and my opinion is that these are not books but only chapters in what seems to be a never ending saga with no resolutions. Each volume ends suddenly with absolutely no sense of completion. A mystery started in the first volume is still not fully solved in volume five. Five volumes of relationships and sex and no commitments. A trunk full of unknown wrapped items inherited by Cara in volume two is still not examined in volume five, and on and on. Ms. Horgan seems to write nothing but teaser to keep you coming back with no intention of ever completing any of the story lines. If you get hooked, be prepared for a long wait to find any resolutions in whatever volumes are to follow.

When I got done with this, I actually wondered if I had missed something. Even went back again thinking I was just
waaayyyy too tired for this one. Sadly, there is no substance to this book. I don't have sisters, but honestly, do they really act like this? There are too many other books out there that are more worthy of your precious time.

I thought I was buying a mystery book. More than 1/4 of the way into the story, there have been maybe 3 paragraphs that refer to an actual murder. There's a lot of talk about maybe using computers to solve the murder, but so far it's all just talk. And bickering between sisters. Constant pointless converstations that really don't go anywhere such as rambles about how children are raised poorly so there's no creativity left. Those things don't move the story along nor really lead to anything but more highlighting of this sibling rivalry/friendship.

It's very rare that I don't finish a book, but after seeing the other reviews and how there's no conclusion to this one, I think this will be one of those times.

I was looking for something to read on my Kindle while waiting in the airport for a delayed flight. A lover of all things British, including the "tea cosies" genre, I bought this on the strength of the title alone. I've always known that one shouldn't judge a book by its cover -- or title. This one proved that cliche, and really tried my patience. I couldn't finish Hot Tea because of all of the back-and-forth bickering and lack of plot advancement, so I never even learned why it is called The Tea Series... So sad. My second favorite truism about books is that there are "so many books and so little time", so I will be more careful in my selection, especially of book for which I must pay a fee.
