General Information About The Tea Series

The characters in the Tea Series are people you’d like to know and part of a family that welcomes you with open arms.  More than 125,000 copies of the books in this series have been sold.  You will find that each book in the series is a fast and fun read.  Each installment is a hybrid of the traditional novel and the serial novel (each is a full-length novel and leads directly into the next installment – the series is best when read in order.)In Hot Tea, Cara O’Flynn finds herself in an unusual position.  She’s quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career, plus, her roommate has run off and left her with an empty room to fill.  If she can just accomplish those two tasks before her mother finds out she has no income and no one to help pay the bills, she’s in good shape.
