After a particularly successful evening of sales, Charleston's Theodosia Browning discovers the body of map store owner Daria. Locals have shown interest in buying her shop--but enough to kill? Plus there's been a customer hell-bent on acquiring a not-for-sale map. Most alarming of all theories, however, is Detective Tidwell's: the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia.

The return of Jory's ex and a burgeoning romance for Haley added some colour to an otherwise standard cup of tea from Laura Childs ( )
  Stephen.Lawton | Aug 7, 2021 |
I enjoy reading facts about different teas and tea related items in this series. The amateur sleuth is the owner of a tea shop. She employs a master tea blender and a young culinary wizard. When her friend and fellow shop keeper is killed, Theodosia negotiates the twists and turns of the case to try to solve the murder. ( )

Theodosia is happy that the evening's "back-alley crawl" is over and is heading down the alley to visit with her friend, Daria, and see how her new antiquarian map business fared in the crawl. Instead she comes across someone strangling Daria. Before she can even react the strangler drops Daria's body and flees the scene.

Theo spends the rest of the book trying to determine who wanted Daria dead, and why. Is it the boyfriend or the employee? How about the perfumery owners who seem very interested in attaining Daria's building space. Someone else?

I do like Theo and her therapy dog, Earl Grey. This was a very good entry in the series and I was totally surprised by the killer, and the motive. I'm still behind on this series and will keep working toward catching up. ( )

What a joy it is to spend time visiting the Indigo Tea Shop and it's owner Theodosia Browning and her staff. If this were a real place I would love to work there. Drayton is the master tea blender with a wonderful sense of humor, Haley the innovative chef and part-timer Miss Dimple.

The historic area of Charleston wrapping up a Back alley crawl one evening and Theois on her way to take some tea and scones to the lady who runs a map shop. As Theo approaches she witnesses the shop owner being strangled. The assailant sees her and takes off running. The police are called and Detective Tidwell casually mentions the the victim bears a resemblance to Theo. Quite naturally Theo wants to find the assailant, but she was seen and just maybe she was the intended victim. As Theo begins to do some low key investigation someone tries to run Theo off the road. Now she is really concerned for her own life. She soon learn that her ex friend has recently broken up with his girlfriend, who just happens to be in town. there is a group called The Kipling Club who loot are of historical artifacts. Maybe they surprised while going through the shops inventory of old maps. In the end Theo find the answers she needs.

Laura Childs writing and descriptions of the surrounding s is what makes this a great series. In my minds I can practically see the shop, it setting and display of teas. Even if you are not a lover of teas, this is a must read series to educate ones self about them. Recipes for wonderfully sounding meals severed at the shop are included. ( )
