Summary

The deliciously delightful first audiobook in the new Seaside Cafe cozy mystery series. 

Sun, sand, and tea are just three of Everly Swan's favorite 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.

Big Mistake

I'm not sure why this book got such good reviews. The lead character has poor judgement and makes stupid decisions. I couldn't finish this book.

Almost Entertaining

Parts of this story had great potential, but main character Everly was too naïve and undisciplined to be a successful business owner. Who would start a small business without doing any research or creating a business plan? Wish more female authors would create intelligent, competent and compelling women characters, rather than scatter-brained Barbie dolls.

Sleuth is more emotional than rational

I do not like mysteries where the sleuth is an idiot or behaves like one. I found that Everly lacked common sense and had a bull in a china shop approach to sleuthing. I prefer my sleuths to be more intelligent and observant than emotional and clueless. The way the mystery was solved and the reasons for the murders was not very satisfying. It was as though it was time to wrap up the book, so insert murder attempt by guilty party. I probably won't read anymore from this series.

There narration was pretty nice I will definitely listen to this narrator in the future.

Love the first installment!

I look forward to seeing where the author takes this delightful tea shop sleuth next.

Lovely

I’m almost finished with the entire series and I love these endearing people so much! Clean, easy flow, fantastic narration, and romance but without sexing it up. Perfect series!

I didn't like it

Live and Let Chai isn't very interesting or realistic. I didn't like the lead character and thought she made unwise decisions. I won't get the next one.

Utterly CHARMing

Who wouldn't wanna live in Charm, North Carolina? Sweet Tea and warm beaches, and a name like Everly . . . with two quirky great aunts who are beekeepers . . . sounds just about perfect . . . until a body turns up with a jar of your just made specialty tea beside it. Detective Grady Hays makes it his business to investigate. And it seems the victim didn't much like the tea shop or Everly. Or anybody. So who wanted to kill him the MOST? There's quite the mystery surrounding the Swan family in Charm and the aunts aren't totally forthcoming when Everly tries to pry it out of them. Which makes the second in the series a MUST!!! The search for the murderer and Everly's run-ins with Detective Hays are both entertaining and cause for stress. This tale is full of small town goodness, closeness and individuality. Excellent resolution to the crime . . . Can't wait for the next in the series!

Seriously Dumb

I love fluffy reads but the story and main character for Live and Let Chai was simply dumb. The reader didn’t help. Baffled by the positive reviews.

Please return my money

The narrator was thick with a southern accent which was like nails on a chalk board. I may try reading the kindle version and reinvent the character voices in my head.
