Another hit by Laura to a great series. This book gave us plenty of twists. There was some relationships that ended but then some that are just beginning. I can't wait to see what is in store for us in the upcoming books. Through the whole book you have one person that the police were focused on and one person that Theo was focused on but thanks to Theo's good investigative skills she found the real killer. My thoughts on some of the characters - I wish Haley would grow up, I think she acts like a teenager as times and she is not one of my favorite people. I love Drayton and as the series goes on I love him even more. Delaine is a rude uppity person and is someone I would not care to be around. Timothy was a little off and grumpy in this book. Gracie I think is going to be a good addition to this series and a friend to Haley. I loved the idea of a tea cup exchange party at the tea shop. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

As an avid reader,this book failed to keep me interested. Too many cliches,too many characters with strange names made the plot unreal & a bore. This was one the few books I didn't finish reading.

Theodosia Browning¿s Indigo Tea Shop in Charleston, South Carolina, is a great success. The Poet¿s Tea is forced inside. Auction house owner Roger Crispin falls off the balcony and onto Theodosia¿s cake when a shot rang out during a presentation given by Drayton Conneley. Since Theodosia was the last one to see Roger alive when she took a cup of tea to him up in the balcony, she is questioned. The police also question Grace Venable who is opening a store near the tea shop. Haley, a co-worker of Theodosia¿s, is friendly with Grace and is upset when Grace becomes a suspect because she had been having an affair with Roger who was married. Theodosia and friends begin investigating as Roger¿s wife is putting lots of pressure on the police to look at Grace. Theodosia does not believe Grace did it, but she isn¿t positive. The investigation leads her into the swamps of South Carolina where she uncovers art forgery, fraud, and murder. Can she escape with her life to be able to alert the authorities. This was the first I have read in this delightful series. It won¿t be the last. Even though I¿m not a tea drinker, I really enjoyed this book. I found the information about tea enjoyable. The author didn¿t describe it in such depth that non-tea drinkers would be bored. I really like Theodosia and her friends. They are great characters and having it set in Charleston was great. I have visited there once. She really has the ambiance down. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more.

In Charleston, South Carolina, Theodosia Browning¿s Indigo Tea Shop is a smashing success and is now very much one of the in places. Theodora¿s contribution to the first Poet¿s Tea is moved indoors to the Heritage Society when the weather turns nasty. During a presentation given by Drayton Conneley, a shot rings out and a man falls off the balcony and lands on Theodosia¿s cake. The killer escapes and the gala obviously ended early. --- She was the last person to see auction house owner Roger Crispin alive when she brought him a cup of tea in the balcony. The police question her and Gracie Venable who is just about to open a millenary story near the Indigo Tea Shop. Haley another co-worker of Theodosia¿s is friendly with the woman and is upset that the police are looking at her as a suspect because she was having an affair with the much married Roger. His wife, a mover and Shaker in Charleston, is putting pressure on the police to look at Grace as the killer, leaving it to Theodosia and company to find the real killer just like they have five times before. --- The protagonist is one of the most realistic and likeable characters to grace the pages of a mystery novel. Her investigative techniques are all within the realm of possibility so readers feel that anyone could do what Theodosia is doing. This delightful amateur sleuth mystery is entertaining and keeps the audience interested from the time the victim falls into the heroine¿s cake. Laura Childs knows how to create the ambience that makes this series so special because one of the main characters is the city of Charleston.--- Harriet Klausner
