This is another great book in the Tea Shop Mysteries. All the usual characters are there of course; Theo, Haley, Drayton, Delaine, Jory, Miss Dimple and of course Tidwell. This is again a very well plotted story with great characters. The death of a prominent Charleston Antique dealer during a Poetry reading which the Indigo Tea Shop is catering starts the story off. And all official eyes are on a new to the town young woman who is in the process of trying to open a new millinary shop just down the street from the Theos'. Theo and the gang cannot help themselves once again from "looking into things" including secrets about this and other suspects, much to the dismay of Detective Tidwell. This story has an ending you will not see coming, and some other changes that will take you by surprise as well. Another superb Laura Childs offering.
Theodosia tries to solve a murder when a friend is the main suspect and while trying to deal with Jory's job move to New York.
A fun read for anyone who enjoys tea, recipes and a who-dun-it. Likable characters and great story line.
