Live and Let Chai is the first book in the Seaside Cafe Mysteries series. The book sees a body turn up on the boardwalk outside Everly Swan’s iced tea shop and cafe. This leads to Everly becoming the number one suspect in the case and leads to her investigating it for herself. Everly headed to her hometown of Charm, North Carolina and is getting a fresh start with the Sun, Sand, and Tea cafe. When she gets a grouchy customer and then that customer turns up dead with the toxicology pointing to poison, right after he ate her food. Everyone in town thinks she did it so she has to fight to clear her name.

Another book in the Seaside Cafe Mysteries series is Closely Harbored Secrets, the fifth entry in the series. In this book, Halloween comes to Charm, North Carolina and Everly wants to make Halloween-themed treats for her customers.
