It’s scones and scandal for Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning in the
latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Steeped in Evil…
Normally Theodosia wouldn’t attend a black tie affair for all the tea in China.
But she can hardly say no to her hunky, handsome boyfriend, Max, who directs
public relations for the Gibbes Museum in Charleston. Max has organized an
amazing gala opening for an exhibit of a genuine eighteenth century Chinese
teahouse, and the crème de la crème of Charleston society is invited.
In the exotic garden staged in the museum’s rotunda, a Chinese dragon dances to
the beat of drums as it weaves through the crowd. The guests are serenaded by a
Chinese violin as they sample an assortment of tempting bites. And to give them a
memento of the occasion, there’s even a photo booth. But Theodosia makes a grim
discovery behind the booth’s curtains: the body of museum donor Edgar Webster.
While Theodosia prefers tea service over the service of justice, this case is
difficult to ignore—especially after Max becomes a suspect. Now she must examine
the life of the fallen philanthropist and find out who really wanted him to pay
I can't think of one thing that I don't love about your latest book!! For starters, anything to do with Chinese culture, has my utmost attention, because I have read about, and also collet anything Chinese, and have done so for years!! The setting is very interesting. To write about tea and a teahouse is an added plus!! When you write your book as a mystery, I'm absolutely enrapt!! Congratulations on your latest book, which I'm sure is going to be quite the hit!! The cover with the ginger jars on it blew me away!! (Peggy Roberson 8:03am May 5, 2015)
