Delightful as a perfectly brewed cup of tea. ( )

It was nice to spend time with Theodosia, Drayton, and Haley again. I think I would like Theodosia's tea shop as a place to visit/spend time.

According to the book, Shades of Earl Grey is a tea blend that Drayton created. Earl Grey is also the name of Theodosia's dog.

I liked the idea of something new being created out of something thought to be broken beyond repair. A different way to appreciate the same thing.

The mystery deals mostly with stolen goods--what appears to be stolen jewelry at first but eventually links to other stolen items of great value. ( )

Good read. Love the setting and the characters. ( )

This is still one of my favorite series. I love the Charleston setting and how you still get that small town feel. Laura Childs' mysteries are always hard to solve, which adds to the enjoyment of the book. I hate to know who the culprit is before the end of the book. The characters are well developed and have such a great friendship. I love reading this series! ( )
