Tea Time Tuesday

Buried in the Books

Every Tuesday come join me as I discuss a recent cozy mystery in review and have Goûter (tea time). Readers can enjoy a thoughtful review while sipping on their favorite teas, they may find new teas to love as well. I will be recommending a good tea for each book. Come cozy up with Tea Time Tuesday.

You are invited to the wedding of two of my favorite characters in the mystery world. Brooklyn and Derek are ready to say “I Do”, the question is will it happen? We have the antics of family, murder, and of course sweet love. I would suggest a London Fog to drink for this book, and yes you can do it iced!

Book Summary

A typical travel book takes readers along on a trip with the author, but a great travel book does much more than that, inviting readers along on a mental and spiritual journey as well. This distinction is what separates Nancy McCabe’s From Little Houses to Little Women from the typical and allows it to take its place not only as a great travel book but also as a memoir about the children’s books that have shaped all of our imaginations.

McCabe, who grew up in Kansas just a few hours from the Ingalls family’s home in Little House on the Prairie, always felt a deep connection with Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House series. McCabe read Little House on the Prairie during her childhood and visited Wilder sites around the Midwest with her aunt when she was thirteen. But then she didn’t read the series again until she decided to revisit in adulthood the books that had so influenced her childhood. It was this decision that ultimately sparked her desire to visit the places that inspired many of her childhood favorites, taking her on a journey that included stops in the Missouri of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the Minnesota of Maud Hart Lovelace, the Massachusetts of Louisa May Alcott, and even the Canada of Lucy Maud Montgomery.

From Little Houses to Little Women reveals McCabe’s powerful connection to the characters and authors who inspired many generations of readers. Traveling with McCabe as she rediscovers the books that shaped her and ultimately helped her to forge her own path, readers will enjoy revisiting their own childhood favorites as well.

Book Review by Bree Herron

Sometimes the mystery world needs to see the love shine through.In the case of this series this book made my heart so happy! Now I am a complete fan of this author and Brooklyn. I was thrilled with the chance at a wedding, but also the murder kicks butt! I thought that the past was always a bit taboo to mess with and flashes from the past might lead us all on the hunt for a killer.


A book cover to love forever, I love the wedding scene! It just begs a diehard romantic/ mystery lover to pick it up and read.

Enjoyable Moments

Well, the actions that have cause and effect in this story were well done. I thought that the books that were a part of the mystery were amazing, and I might have been drawn to snooping online to see what they would look like. I always think Brooklyn does a wonderful job with working in the rare book world, and this one was possibly my favorite.


How couldn’t a fan love this book?! I truly couldn’t put it down or stop talking about Brooklyn and Derek (sadly, not everyone I know, knows them…yet). It is a book that is meant to be shared, bought and enjoyed by all mystery fans.

I Rate it

Let’s paint a wedding picture, tell me what a wedding would like if you planned it!
