The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane by Sheila Roberts

The Tea Shop on Lavender Lane by Sheila Roberts is the fifth installment of the Icicle Falls series.

From the cover:
After a fake food poisoning incident in L.A., Bailey Sterling's dreams of becoming a caterer to the stars collapse faster than a souffle. Now Bailey's face is in all the gossip rags and her business is in ruins. But the Sterling women close ranks and bring her back to Icicle Falls, where she'll stay with her sister Cecily.

All goes well between the sisters until Bailey comes up with a new business idea - a tea shop. She's going into partnership with Todd Black who it turns out is the man Cecily's started dating . . .

The title and cover of the book is adorable, and I picked it up because I thought it was a cozy mystery, but it turned out to be a women's fiction/romance which I don't normally read.  I didn't get very far with the story, Cecily's constant reference to her "zing-o-meter" became annoying to me. It does have good reviews on Amazon so if you like romance books you may enjoy it, but I'll stick to  cozy mysteries in the future.
