Parlor – 2020

Welcome to the parlor! Please come in and make yourself comfortable. Have a cup of tea and say hello.

Well, another year has gone by quickly!

I will confess that I don’t keep up the parlor as often as I’d like. One reason is that it’s a bit fussy to maintain, so for the new year, I’m going to try a new approach. I’ll leave up the old pages, but I won’t archive any more. Comments will come in on this page. They get shut off automatically now and then, to discourage spammers. I plan to drop by every so often and when I do I’ll refresh the comments option, so please say hello here and I’ll be along soon to respond.

If you’re on Facebook, the Wisteria Tearoom Group is the best place for tea and company in the Wisteria Tearoom community. I look in there at least a couple of times a week, and the group there shares fun tea pictures and recipes, etc.

    Good afternoon, Ms Greenwood,

    I just finished “Family Matters,” and was so pleased about Ellen and Tony. I will be looking forward to the next mystery, and hoping it won’t be the last.

    Near the end of January, I was visiting New York City with my cousin, Mairead. For the last several years she and I have done this and it is a trip to which I look forward all year long. This year we had afternoon tea at the historic St. Regis Hotel. This was Mairead’s first tea. The location was absolutely lovely with crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceilings which were painted with clouds, blue skies. The tea was wonderful as we spent two hours enjoying the tea room, the courses, the harpist playing, and each other’s company. The history of the Astors and the tea celebrated there for Mrs. Astor’s favorite ladies was interesting to read. Among other facts we learned about this “high society” family was how Mr. Astor gave up his life boat seat to a young woman on that fateful maiden voyage of The Titanic.

    It is our plan to visit a different tea room on each of our future visits. Wish you could join us.


  2. I have so enjoyed Ellen’s story so far and anxiously await the next book!

  3. Good Afternoon,

    I would like to know when I can start looking for the next book in the Wisteria Tea Room series. I have them all and have read them now a couple of times.

    Thank you for answering this. I appreciate it.

  4. What a lovely series to stumble across. Fully formed characters, well plotted mysteries, and a sensible heroine all set in Santa Fe. I found the Wisteria Tea Room Series through a Library Recommendation and savored them all just finished As Red As Any Blood and am eagerly awaiting the next novel. Thank you for sharing your characters with us.

  5. Just finished the first book in the Wisteria Tearoom series. About halfway through it, I found out I already had books 1, 3, and 4. I went ahead and ordered 2, 5 and 6. Can’t wait to finish the series.

  6. Are you going to write another Wisteria Room book?
    I have patiently been waiting!
