Three women who, in some way or another, know the meaning of betrayal… For team leader Rachael Lambert the project is the perfect opportunity to rebuild her confidence after a double-betrayal by her lover and boss, Peter Kemp. Botanist Anne Preece, on the other hand, sees it as a chance to indulge in a little deception of her own. And then there is Grace Fulwell, a strange, uncommunicative young woman with plenty of her own secrets to hide… When Rachael arrives at the cottage, however, she is horrified to discover the body of her friend Bella Furness. Bella, it appears, has committed suicide – a verdict Rachael finds impossible to accept. Only when the next death occurs does a fourth woman enter the picture – the unconventional Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope, who must piece together the truth from these women’s tangled lives… https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/97569.The_Crow_Trap?from_search=true&qid=Vtb58SBfyG&rank

Set in the weeks before the annual Inversgail Literature Festival in Scotland, Plaid and Plagiarism begins on a morning shortly after four women take possession of their bookshop in the Highlands. Unfortunately, the move to Inversgail has not gone as smoothly as they had planned.

First, Janet Marsh is told that she will have to wait before moving into her new home. Then she finds out the house has been vandalized. Again. The chief suspect? Una Graham, an advice columnist for the local paper—who is trying to make a name for herself as an investigative reporter. When Janet and her business partners go looking for clues at the house, they find a body—it is Una, in the garden shed, with a sickle in her neck. Janet never did like that garden shed.

Who wanted Una dead? After discovering a cache of nasty letters, Janet and her friends are beginning to wonder who did not, including Janet’s ex-husband. Surrounded by a cast of characters with whom readers will fall in love, the new owners of Yon Bonnie Books set out to solve Una’s murder so they can get back to business.

The Ladies of High Tea will meet the Fourth Thursday of the Month at 1PM. Our book for February 27th, 2020 is:  Julie and Romeo Get Lucky by Jeanne Ray.

Julie Roseman and Romeo Cacciamani know a thing or two about good fortune. For generations, their families were rival florists and bitter enemies. Then Julie and Romeo met by chance, just as each became single again. Even more miraculous, they fell in love.
Three years later, Julie and Romeo are still blissfully happy. They don’t often get a quiet moment alone, and rarely manage a night — quiet or otherwise — in the same bed, but Julie feels blessed by what they do have: true love, wonderful jobs, and houses packed to the rafters with family. Romeo’s ninety-three-year-old mother, his son Alan, Alan’s wife and their three children live with him; Julie’s daughter Sandy and her family — including Sandy’s Willy Wonka-obsessed daughter, Sarah, and their cat — live with her. The odds of Julie and Romeo getting a few days of peace together seem about as likely as winning the lottery.
But their wish comes true — with a twist — when an injury puts Romeo flat on his back in Julie’s room. Spending days in bed may sound heavenly, but with Romeo on pain pills, initially as comatose as Juliet in her tomb, the reality is less romantic. Then Julie’s other daughter, Nora, drops her own crisis on her mother’s doorstep. Now Julie has to figure out how to run two flower shops, take care of an ever-expanding household, nurse her beloved Romeo back to health, tackle Sarah’s fixation with lottery tickets, and keep her daughters from regressing into full-scale teenage bickering. And Lady Luck has one more surprise in store….

Rescuing her from an overbearing employer, de Winter whisks her off to Manderley, his isolated estate on the windswept Cornish coast–but there things take a chilling turn. Max seems haunted by the memory of his glamorous first wife, Rebecca, whose legacy is lovingly tended by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers. As the second Mrs. de Winter finds herself increasingly burdened by the shadow of her mysterious predecessor, she becomes determined to uncover the dark secrets that threaten her happiness, no matter the cost.
