Magpie’s Tearoom is a cozy haven in bustling L.A. — a place for luncheons, baby showers, or simply hanging out. Its owner, British expat Margaret Moore, relishes tradition…but between a frustrated chef preoccupied with her neglectful producer girlfriend and the tearoom’s waitstaff — a talented but desperate TV star who hasn’t acted since Detective Buck Love went off the air, and a twenty-something ingénue who’ll do anything to get the part — her grandmother’s scones begin to feel irrelevant. As Margaret battles pilot season and produce-coordinator malfunctions, she begins to lose her will to live…in L.A.
“Don’t miss this one. It’s perfect to enjoy as autumn fills the air. High Tea offers the right amount of hilarity and poignancy, mixing cucumber sandwiches with LaLaLand.”
“High Tea is a funny and sweet novel about life’s challenges and rewards.”

OVER THE HOLIDAYS
It’s only December 1, and Vanessa Clayton has been dreading Christmas since she spotted tinseled trees at her local mall in September. Thankfully, she and her husband, JT, can’t afford to drag their twin boys across the country to New England for the annual celebration at her stuffy sister-in-law Patience’s home. Then Patience drops a holiday stress bomb: Her family will come to California instead.
“Sandra Harper’s holiday novel is a nice way to spend an afternoon relaxing. I would recommend this as a holiday read as well as a book for anyone who enjoys Women’s Fiction with strong, well-developed characters and a story with some depth to it."
ON MY BOOKSHELF
“I found Over the Holidays to be a fun read, as light and fluffy as cotton candy with a peppermint twist. If you enjoy chick lit, if you have strong feelings about the holidays or just want some light, entertaining reading, you simply can’t go wrong with Over the Holidays.”
