    I really liked Trouble in Nuala and recommended it in recent Friends of the Library contest and so got invited to be on a local podcast about the de Silva series! I would love to win the series in time for the podcast–plus have some lovely Ceylon tea while we chat into the microphone!!

    I’ve heard the de Silva series is incredible. It’s just about to be winter here which is super snowy and cold and an escape to Africa with a mug of tea sounds perfect!

    Finished and loved Trouble inn Nuala and am submitting it in local library “book recommendations” contest (prize = Kindle!). Would love to keep going with #2 & #3, with Ceylon tea. Haven’t figured out how to join the book club discussion; I have the book on Kindle… Onward!

    I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover… but with a design as beautiful as that you can’t help but get excited for the story inside! And of course a cuppa to help with the immersion would top it off.

    I love books set in foreign climes you get a sense of culture and it’s like travelling without using your passport. Tea and reading are also perfect partners.

    This set of novels sounds right up my street- there is nothing I like better than a good mystery to keep me engrossed on a winter’s evening- except perhaps a good mystery with a delicious cup of tea- I do hope I win!
