From the Cup of Tea Books guidelines:

Cup of Tea is currently accepting submissions of novel-length women’s fiction. Although it’s hard to define the exact characteristics that will grab our attention, it’s safe to say we are looking for finely-drawn characters, a compelling story, and deft writing. For us, story is more important than genre; as long as a novel is captivating, we’ll want to read it. We particularly enjoy cozy mysteries and upmarket commercial fiction, and we’ve been known to indulge in romance novels, too.
