A cup of tea and a paperback. The perfect combo any time of year, but particularly in late February. It has been warmer lately, but we know that here in Massachusetts Winter and Spring battle it out? share nicely? through April. So whether it's snowing, raining, or even if it feels warm enough to be outside without a coat, we hope you take time to snuggle up with a cup of tea and your favorite paperback book. Here are our book and tea suggestions . . .

An English mystery always goes very well with tea. Try English Breakfast for this ~ Lindsay
What better way to tackle a dark winter day than to indulge in a Rosamunde Pilcher novel, one with five main characters (and a bevy of minor characters), all of whom end up in Northern Scotland after life-altering events. Such is her latest, Winter Solstice. The plot is not contrived and moves along smoothly, each chapter told from the viewpoint of a different character. And for those of us of a certain age--how nice to see romance blooming between two 60-something characters. You will certainly want to put the kettle on because a "cuppa" is the universal British solution to tension, the cold weather, fatigue, and anything else that ails you--and these characters always turn to their tea. My choice is my favorite, Constant Comment. ~ Mary Fran
