I have read all of the Tea Shop Mystery books. Once again I was not disappointed. I can't wait for the next one!!! :)

Although I like this series, this particular offering was somewhat disappointing. The ending seemed very contrived, almost as if the author wasn't sure who was going to be the perpetrator until the last chapter or so. And the resolution was just plain stupid.

In this edition of the tea shop mysteries we get to go along with Theo to the film awards. We learned something new about Timothy. At the beginning of the book I was upset with what happened to Drayton as he is one of my favorite characters. Nina is back and giving Delanie a run for her money which always makes me smile but there is a twist in one of their story lines. (Sorry I don't want to give away any spoilers) Since Haley is not one of my favorite people I was a little happy that she took a bit of a back sit in this story. I had about three people on my list of suspects and the one who it ended up being was actually a person I was really liking as a new character. C.W. Dredd was a slimy person to me so we shall see how he is in future books. Another thing I liked was that we got to see more of Parker and Theo's relationship which makes me happy. I also like the talk of the teas and thing the idea of a tea list would be great. I am looking forward to the next book to see what kind trouble Theo and the gang get into again.

Theodosia Browning is at it again in this ninth installment of the teashop mystery series. I appreciate Laura Child's use of geographical information about Charleston and the surrounding areas. Her descriptions of the places in her books make me want to visit. You'll enjoy reading to find out how Theo solves another murder all the while running her delightful little teashop!

While I love this series, I did not enjoy this particular book. It was very obvious who the killer was very early in the book and I found the plot to be far fetched. I won't stop reading this series but I am hopeful that the remaining books will continue in the same entertaining fashion that the previous books have been. I also found that this books kept a lot of loose ends. Overall, a good series, this book was just disappointing.

This was the 9th installment of the India Tea Shop Mysteries and my first disappointment from the author, Laura Childs. I love this series but not this book. I still have questions even though I have finished and re-read the ending, I still have questions. First of all, I knew who the killer was at page 100 simply because this person kept popping up without any need to be there. Second, there were numerous incidents throughout that were not explained at the end and the motive was definitely not clear. So all in all, even though I enjoyed the story, I didn't like to the book.

I own and have read all of Laura Childs Tea Shop mystery murder books. They are very entertaining and whimsical at best. The plot keeps you hook till the end and the characters are well define. I really enjoy this book. Good for a rainy day and a good cup of tea. Highly recommend.

What a delightful and fun series this is. An added bonus is learning more about tea. I will never be able to look at tea in the same way again.
