It’s been years since Nina Blake was whisked away from Los Angeles by Brandon McCoy to his remote Oklahoma hometown. Now a nationally acclaimed romance novelist, Nina’s once loving marriage has evolved into bickering and emotional disconnection. The romance novelist whose life is devoid of romance – it’s the most humiliating form of irony. In a desperate plea for guidance, Nina pours a cup of tea over her Grandma Isabel’s grave and inexplicably starts receiving visits from her beloved relative whenever she brews a cup. With Grandma’s counseling, Nina begins a journey to remember who she truly is.

Tea with Isabel is a heartfelt story that tests the durability of real-life love. It celebrates the power of female relation- ships, and with a whisper of mysticism, the poignancy of spending time with a loved one lost.


JULIE SNEED WOMACK grew up in La Cañada Flintridge and recently moved to a small town in Oklahoma. Tea with Isabel, which released this summer, is her first book.
