Honestly 4 starts is overrated for this installment in The Tea Shop Series containing as it does several irrelevant & unfinished sub plots and serendipitous coincidences that beggar belief BUT it's all such good fun with lovely characters right down to Earl Grey Theodosia's canine companion that I can forgive all its flaws.

Good book dealing with the Charleston area involving Theodosia, of course. This time she finds the murder victim as she is competing in a horse jumping race. She is thrown from her horse and finds Abby Davis shot to death. Various things happen and several people are suspects. I did not suspect the murderer this time. ( )

3.5 stars (rating shown may differ depending on whether site allows half star ratings).

I've read a few books from this series prior to this one and enjoyed them. I thought it was strange that a tea shop mystery started out in a non-tea setting. I didn't remember Jory (who dated the main character in the past) or Parker (who's dating her now) from my past reading.

I didn't guess who was behind the murder until it was revealed. I did suspect one other character of theft correctly (or apparently correctly) though. ( )

Another fun fast read. ( )

Theo finds the dead body in the first few pages, unfortunately, it is Abby. Abby is the sister of Theo's former boyfriend, Jory, and they had a public argument, not all that long ago.

This event leads to hunting for clues, in some of the strangest place. Theo agrees to help both Tidwell (local detective) and Jory find out who hated Abby.

Lots of tea lore, a magnificent masked ball, and tea parties are scattered through the story.

I like Theo and her friends and even though I don't drink tea, I enjoy the history and ingredients talked about in each story. ( )

Overhead branches slapped at Theodosia's cheeks, and a crisp breeze nipped and pecked tendrils of auburn hair from beneath her black velvet riding cap.
