Zoe Carides showcases her full range of vocal talents in portraying a group of feisty tea ladies who set about solving a case of arson, a kidnapping, and a murder in Sydney, Australia, in 1965. Led by soft-spoken and courageous Hazel Bates, the tea ladies include foulmouthed Irene, ditzy Betty, and snooty Merl. Carides masterfully conveys the personalities of each with tone, pace, and accent, creating a vivid listening experience. She also successfully depicts the many male characters, good, evil, and mysteriously in-between. The narrative delves into the women's fashion industry at the time of the minidress, providing a rich historical backdrop. Carides delivers a thoroughly captivating cozy with memorable characters, evocative settings, and a compelling mystery. E.Q. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
