Love this story, this series is wonderful. Cozy and the characters are good to get to know. Introduced a new character this time. Drayton is always fun.

Once again, Theodosia does not solve this mystery, and is, in fact, highly shocked when the culprit actually attempts to kill her. Even then, it actually takes her a few minutes to realize this is the same person who killed the other.

On the other hand, I knew by chapter 3 who did it. These tea mysteries are one of the easiest mysteries to solve. The author follows a rule for every book. The person responsible is always the one who is never suspected by Theodosia and about whom there is the least written. So, as soon as Theodosia has a list of suspects, I know none of them did it. Then, it's just a matter of looking for the character who only appears a few times. I've yet to be wrong in any of these mysteries.

It's too bad that the mystery is so badly done as the characters are really wonderful. I keep reading this series simply because I like peeking into the daily lives of the characters.

If you enjoy tea, antiques, touristy stuff about South Carolina, history and charming characters - this is a good book, and series. If you want a real mystery - this is definitely not it!

I have read the whole series and I loved them so much that I am buying all of them. Each book has a list of recipes in the back of the book. Theodosia is a very classy lady who owns a tea shop and finds herself involved in a murder that with a little bit of help she ends up sloving. It is a great book, one that keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next.

If you love this series you will enjoy trying to picture in your mind Drayton paddling a canoe in the swamps.
