Review of Tea Leaf: What Hides Beneath By Mia Mitns

Tea Leaf:  What Hides Beneath

By Mia Mitns

3 out of 5 Stars

What do aliens, soul food, and a group of fun-loving singles have in common?  The fate of all mankind!
Tea Leaf:  What Hides Beneath is Mia Mitns debut novel.  Mitns has a great imagination, sense of drama,
and talent to create loveable characters.  This book was both incredibly amusing and creepy. 
Normally, incessant grammar and punctuation issues bother me, but honestly, the storytelling was so
good in this novel that I was able to ignore most of them.  The seriousness of the plot line was constantly
offset by the wacky flirtations and joking of Cinnia, the main character, and her tightly-knit group of best
friends, who have a penchant for finding alien love interests.  In fact, my favorite quote in the book was

“”We’re always falling for aliens, what is this?”

I certainly cannot leave out the “Iron Chef” soul food battle.  The chapter had me laughing out loud at 2
a.m., waking up everyone else in the house.  And it definitely incited some baked macaroni and cheese
cravings.
The book concludes with an epic final battle among alien races and the humans.  Cinnia finds herself at
the center as all inform her that she is the key to peace.  Does she have what it takes to stop the
violence and restore harmony to our planet?
