Book: Tea Shop Series — The Perfect Blend



The Perfect Blend is the first in the Tea Shop series of novels by Trish Perry.
It is a story based around Millicent's Tea Shop located in the quaint town of Middleburg, VA.  
This book was an easy and fun read with several references to tea and tea foods.
There are several tea sandwich recipes, and a recipe for  Milly's Chocolate - Pecan Scones in the back of the book.

The following description of The Perfect Blend is from the authors website:  

Steph Vandergrift left everything to elope with Middleburg attorney Rick Manfred, who then stood her up at the altar. Too embarrassed to return home, Steph hopes to earn enough to get by until she can decide what to do next. Tea Shop owner Milly Jewel hires her and appreciates the extra help at the tea shop.
Also appreciative of Steph is Kendall James, one of the kindest, most eligible bachelors in the area. But by the time Steph feels able to consider dating again, her run-away fiance returns and tries to win her back. Steph is wary, but she and Rick always blended so well.
Christie Burnham, the frank-talking equestrian from whom Steph rents a room, and her frillier sister Liz become fast friends and confidantes to Steph. Between the two sisters, there isn't much any man is going to pull over on Middleburg's newest bachelorette and tea shop employee.

I ordered my book from Amazon.com for $7.99 
It is published by Harvest House Publishers
The second book in the Tea Shop Series, Tea For Two has just been released.

I read this book and loved it! The new one should be arriving soon and I'm glad, since I just finished another tea shop mystery so now I'm going through withdrawal!
