About the Book
When Mahala Kent’s tea party honoring her brother’s marriage turns into a brawl over tea, she’s forced out of her wealthy neutrality. A public debate on the subject pushes her even closer to her childhood friend and hoped-for suitor, Jothan Stout. Will the arrival of a tea shipment in Greenwich push Jothan and Mahala further apart—or give them a common taste for herbal infusions?

Darlene Franklin’s A Teacup Courtship was an absolute delight to read! I am a huge fan of historical fiction stories and the 18th Century time period. This story takes place during the unrest between Mother England and America and the argument over tea. I thoroughly enjoy reading about this struggle. Darelen’s novella in the A Teacup Courtship Collection has fun characters, including spunky and opinionated Mahala Kent, as well as a history based and pleasurable story with Tea Party debates and of course mention of dumping tea in the ocean so Americans can get their point across to England. There is also a bit of romance, which enhances this charming tale. I would recommend this novella to readers that enjoy historical fiction and stories that take place in the 18th Century.
