  1. Hi.
    I’m enjoying a cup of Ginger Peach from The Republic of Tea.
    Stay safe and healthy.

    I would love to see a room plan for each floor of the wonderful sounding house. So many alcoves and rooms.

      I believe all the ebooks of the novels now have maps. The print editions starting with book 5 (A Masquerade of Muertos) also have maps. No maps in the Intermezzi.

    Hello Patrice. I am taking you in advance for answering this letter. Just so you know , as of right now, I have bread every book except an interlude, which has been ordered. I have fallen in love with each character as you make them come alive for me. If you could just answer my only question, when will the next book in the Tearoom be out? I can hardly wait. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I am truly grateful.

      As soon as I know, you’ll know. Work progresses on book 8, but until the manuscript is complete, we won’t have a publication date.

  4. Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year!

  5. Any plans on audiobooks for those you haven’t done yet?

    • Patrice Greenwood

      Unfortunately the production cost for audiobooks is pretty high. At the current rate of sales, the audiobook for A BODKIN FOR THE BRIDE will not be paid for until about 2027.

      I’m considering reading the books myself, to lower the cost. I’ll keep you posted when there’s any news on that. I would certainly like to have an audiobook edition of A MASQUERADE OF MUERTOS.

  6. Hi there!
    I just wanted to say thank you. Every single book thus far has been a delight to read and I look forward to the next one with bated breath. You and your works were such a motivator for me through college and into my first year as an editorial assistant. So, thank you, thank you, thank you. <3
    I wish you all the best this year! Happy writing!

      Thank you, Sarah! I’m so glad the books have helped you! That’s my goal, to make life a little easier for everyone who picks up the books. Best of luck in editorial!

  7. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous 2023! We were snowy and had record breaking cold last week and had a beautiful white Christmas. Now it’s in the 50s & 60s, the birds the bees are a bit confused! Flip-flops on New Years Eve is even a bit unbelievable for this Central Illinois transplant. All the best to you and yours!

  8. So happy to hear you are working on the next tearoom book. I have missed the yearly release. I have checked the Amazon list a few times to make sure I hadn’t missed it.

  9. I am joining your readers in thanking you for such wonderful reads. I am 78 years old & have enjoyed each & every book. I have laughed out loud at times & and gasped when things got a little scary. Thank you for providing us with such treasures!All my best from beautiful Charleston South Carolina!

      Thank you, Janet! I’m so glad you enjoy the books. Stay tuned for the next one…

      • I’ve just finished rereading the whole series again. Thank you for such wonderful detail!! I look forward to the next one. Thank you for sharing the extra details in the lives of these wonderful characters in the extra novellas, I’ve really enjoyed each of them!!

  10. I am looking for a list of the Wisteria Tea Room Mysteries listed in order. I want to double check I haven’t missed one. Most I have the paperbacks, but I got some on my Kindle during our move from… So, I’m finally getting everything settled in. I thought I had found one online, but it was not complete.

    Thank you for sharing your gift with us. The stories have been a great escape from crazy life.
