English tea murder – written by Leslie Meier, read by Karen White
The English tea murder sees Lucy and friends jump-at-the-chance to leave Tinker’s Cove and fly across the Atlantic to enjoy a cheap, guided-tour of London. Winchester College’s sponsored tour boasts all the trappings of an English holiday to Lucy and friends. All they have to do is behave as chaperones to a few College students. What a great deal! But Lucy’s English holiday gets off to a bad start when the tour leader dies from an Asthma attack mid-flight but as everyone has arrived in London the College feels the tour should go ahead with a new tour leader. Everyone is introduced to the new group leader, suave Professor Quentin Rea except Lucy who already knows the sinister Professor from her past. From sharing a cramped bed-sit hotel, consuming greasy English breakfasts, trying Indian take-aways, seeing Agatha Christie’s ‘Mouse Trap’, to taking the Tube to the Tower of London then Seaside holiday amusements Lucy is once again tangled in a murder mystery. Accidents and unexpected incidents follow the group and suggest to Lucy that more than bad luck is at play.
