Snappy Review

Book Synopsis

Spied beside the seaside: stepdaughter seeks scandal!

Lady Liesl, fourth daughter of the Earl of Sandwich, always thought her fate was to marry well, and live a perfect life like her older sisters.

Now she’s had a taste of rebellion, and she likes it…

Hunting a missing diamond in a remote seaside town on behalf of a runaway Countess, Liesl finds herself at the mysterious Aphrodite Villa, with a sinister lack of servants, and no household magic in sight… not to mention a parlour full of wild, bohemian artists, including the devilishly seductive Perdita.

This is the Teacup Isles, where nothing is quite as it seems. Lady Liesl is about to uncover some surprising secrets about her family and herself.

If you enjoy cozy magical mysteries, witty banter and Sapphic flirtation by the sea, you’ll love this latest stand-alone novella from the author of Tea & Sympathetic Magic, The Frost Fair Affair and Spellcracker’s Honeymoon.
