Description

Sun, sand, and tea are just three of Everly Swan's favourite things. Her batty beekeeping great aunts and small, coastal hometown of Charm, North Carolina, round out the top five. So returning to Charm for a fresh start on her wilting life is an easy decision for Everly, and opening a new seaside cafe and iced tea shop puts the proverbial icing on her legendary lemon cakes.

Everything is just peachy until a body turns up on the boardwalk outside her home, and a jar of her proprietary tea is found at the victim's side. Now, Detective Grady Hays, Charm's newest and most mysterious lawman, has named Everly as his number one suspect, and Everly's new start is about to go up in smoke unless she can dish up the real killer.

Review quote

"Fun and intriguing, Live and Let Chai is filled to the brim with Southern charm." - Kirsten Weiss, author of A Pie Town Mystery series "Bree Baker's seaside town of Charm has everything readers could want: an intrepid and lovable heroine who owns an adorable ice tea cafe, a swoon-worthy hero--and murder. Fast-paced, smartly plotted, and full of surprises, it's as refreshing as a day at the beach!" - Kylie Logan, bestselling author of French Fried "A smart and likable protagonist, a vividly rendered setting, a suitably twisty plot, and some colorful supporting characters are the ingredients for a concoction as appealing as any of Everly Swan's specialty sweet teas. I can't wait to try out some of her recipes and to visit this delightful series again." - Livia J. Washburn, national bestselling author of the Fresh-Baked Mysteries "A charming cozy debut with characters as sweet as the titular tea, a mystery with numerous attractive byways, and a budding romance waiting to be explored." - Kirkus Reviews "An enjoyable setup for Baker's series, best enjoyed with a sweating glass of sweet tea." - ShelfAwareness "From the book's expertly evoked North Carolina beach town setting to its charmingly quirky cast of characters, everything about this debut mystery will hit the spot." - VOYA Magazine
