Publisher Comments:

In the latest novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Scones and Bones, Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning finds herself in hot water when a body surfaces at the grand opening of Charleston's Neptune Aquarium...

The opening of the aquarium is a major Charleston event, and Theodosia has been hired to cater tea, scones, and sandwiches for the private party to honor dignitaries and big buck donors. Things are going swimmingly, until Theodosia escapes the party for a momentary rest, only to discover the body of a man entangled in a net, drowned in one of the aquarium's state-of-the-art tanks.

To make matters worse, the victim is Theodosia's former boyfriend Parker Scully. The EMTs on the scene think Parker's drowning was an accident, but when Theodosia notices what look like defense wounds on his hands, she realizes that someone wanted Parker dead. The local police aren't keen on hearing her theory-especially because of her ties to the victim-so Theodosia knows that if she wants Parker's killer brought to justice, she'll have to jump into the deep end and start her own investigation...

INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

Review:

"More than rain spoils a June wedding in Childs's pleasing 14th Tea Shop mystery featuring Theodosia Browning, proprietor of the Indigo Tea Shop in Charleston, S.C. (after 2012's Agony of the Leaves). On the wedding day of an old friend, maid-of-honor Theodosia finds the lifeless body of the groom, Dougan Granville, 'one of Charleston's top attorneys,' in his suite at the Ravencrest Inn. A glassine envelope and scattered white powder on a table suggest Dougan may have overdosed on cocaine, but subtle signs of a blow to the head point to murder. Since the Ravencrest Inn is rumored to be haunted, two ghost hunters join the investigation. Series fans won't be surprised when Theodosia's recklessness ('There's no time to think! I just have to... do something!') leads to a climactic confrontation with the killer in an abandoned cemetery. Foodies will appreciate the favorite recipes from the Indigo Tea Shop at the end.

Synopsis:

Savor the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of The Teaberry Strangler.

Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning is lured into attending the Heritage Society's "Pirates and Plunder" soiree. But it's an antique diamond skull ring that gets plundered by someone who murders a history intern in the process. Theodosia knows she'll have to whet her investigative skills to find the killer among a raft of suspects.

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of Oolong Dead serves up an Old-World treat, spiced with a Sherlock Holmes-style murder mystery.

It was the Dickensian evening Theodosia Browning had been hoping for. Charleston shop-owners dressed in cloaks of yore threw open their back doors to visitors, who took advantage of bargains and Theodosia's delicious teas.

But later, the alleys clear except for one body- which a horrified Theodosia discovers. It's Daria, the map store's owner. Locals have shown interest in buying her shop-but enough to kill? Plus there's been a customer hell-bent on acquiring a not-for­sale map. Most alarming of all theories, however, is Detective Tidwell's: the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia. And if that theory holds, the killer's work isn't done.
