Tea Shop Mystery, No. 6
by Laura Childs
Theodosia and the Indigo Tea Shop
staff are back. Drayton is giving a presentation at the Poet's Tea
while Theodosia and Haley serve refreshments. Theodosia knows she's
created a cake to die for, but actually having a dead body fall
into isn't something she's planning.
But that's what happens. Roger Crispin
takes a header off the balcony and into Theo's cake after being
shot. Theodosia is the last to see him alive. This time she isn't
the suspect, but her friend Gracie is. Gracie makes hats to die
for. She's opening a new millinery store. Roger was her landlord.
The police are suspicious about her lease and her relationship with
Roger. Theo and the Tea Shop staff come to Gracie's aid to try to
solve the mystery.
Also, Theo and the staff are
looking at a possible change in their lives. It all depends on Theo
and where her passion lies. Series followers, you don't want to
miss this one...
The Tea Shop series is a cultured
cozy mystery series. In Chamomile Mourning Childs gives readers
tea and art lessons, as well as recipes galore. Childs' characters
continue to develop. The setting is wonderfully southern and truly
fascinating. And this mystery in particular is mildly complex.
