This book is the latest of the Tea Shoppe mysteries continuing the exploits of Theodosia Browning and her cohorts at the Indigo Tea Shop. During an event, Theodosia witnesses the murder of her friend Daria in an alley but due to darkness she is unable to identify the murderer. Tidwell of the Charleston Police, thinks that possibly Theo was the target but cannot find any clues to substantiate that theory. When Theo recognizes Beth Ann, (Jory Davis' ex-fiancée) she begins to feel that she may be in danger. The events that follow keep Theo on her toes until the mystery is solved.
As much as I adore this series and enjoyed this book, I still felt that it lacked a little in the viable clues to aid the reader in solving the mystery. Will this make me stop reading this series, NO WAY! The interaction of the characters along with their development as well as the side stories of their day to day lives is enough to keep the readers coming back for more. And the scrumptious sounding recipes don't hurt either!
I especially want to thank the author, Laura Childs, for sending me a signed copy simply because I told her how much I was looking forward to this new book. I feel very honored.
