Out of the cauldron and into the fire... #CozyMystery #TeaAndTarot #Halloween

Never Say Chai cover


It’s Halloween season in small town San Borromeo, and Abigail and Hyperion are determined to make Beanblossom’s Tea & Tarot spooktacular. But when Hyperion’s boyfriend, Detective Tony Chase, is arrested at Beanblossom’s for murder, the duo is certain someone’s playing a nasty trick. And when the official investigation turns into a witch hunt, the stakes to unearth the truth are raised…

But a clever killer has plans to squash their investigation… and the two amateur detectives. If they don’t solve this puzzle—and fast—it will be out of the cauldron and into the fire for them both.

Never Say Chai is the fourth book in the Tea and Tarot cozy mystery series. A fast-paced and funny cozy mystery, packed with quirky characters, pets, and murder! Perfect for fans of Jana DeLeon, Janet Evanovich, and Donna Andrews. Buy the book and start this hilarious caper!

Tearoom recipes in the back of the book!


There are some things that should go without saying. For example, don’t leave a coffin in your business partner’s driveway. It’s just not done.

But there was a coffin in my driveway. And it had wheels. I looked from the black coffin to the yellow bungalow. Yep, it was my house. Just above the peaked roofline, fog blurred a watery sun.

Do you have any idea why there’s a coffin in my driveway?” Because there was really only one person who would put one there. I tore my gaze from the wooden coffin to Hyperion. “And why is it on wheels?”

He shifted his weight. “Didn’t I mention the coffin race?”


Why’d you think I had a t-shirt cannon?”

I still have no idea why you’ve got one.”

For the coffin race.” He patted the coffin’s hood.

I waited.

I entered Beanblossom’s in the race,” he said patiently. “We’re going as the Death card. I’ve got a scythe and everything.”

A scythe at high speeds. What could go wrong?”

It’ll be like in one of those Italian medieval morality parades. Did you know those parades most likely spawned the Tarot’s major arcana cards?”

Oh, boy.”

Or was it the Renaissance?” He shook his head. “They were in Italy. I know that much.”

Hello, Kirsten,

Welcome back to Beyond Romance! A coffin race? What will you think of next?

You're a very versatile writer. I'm partway through the second Sensibility Gray book, which is quite different from the way this sounds!

I can't take credit for the coffin race. Manitou Springs has one for Halloween every year. But thank you! And yes, the steampunk was a fun diversion for me. I love "straight" cozy mysteries (and writing witch cozy mysteries), but sometimes, I just like to do something different!
