"TWISTED TEA MURDER definitely doesn’t disappoint!"

Fresh Fiction Review

Twisted Tea Christmas
Laura Childs

Reviewed by Annie Tegelan
Posted October 2, 2021

Mystery Amateur Sleuth | Mystery Cozy | Holiday

One of my favorite Cozy Mystery authors, Laura Childs, is back with another installment in the Teashop Mystery series. The thing I love about this book the most is that Childs never strays from what she knows works. There’s an excellent way in which she unfolds this story and with each book, I am amazed by how she is able to tell her story quickly and efficiently while also giving readers a wild ride!

This book does have a Christmas theme to it, which is a nice added touch. What can I say? I’m a sucker for holiday-themed novels. But in addition to that, Childs tosses Theodosia and Drayton into yet another murder mystery when the Grande Dame, Drucilla, throws a party and is going to announce which charities she wishes to donate large sums of her money to. However, before that could happen, Theodosia finds her dead with a syringe sticking out of her neck!

The crazy but still believable nature of her stories is what keeps me coming back for more. There’s just enough thrill and secrets to keep me entertained. But most of all, Drayton and Theodosia are always very down-to-earth and personable, making me interested to read more of them. I think that’s why Childs is able to continue with so many books in this series. As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. TWISTED TEA MURDER definitely doesn’t disappoint!

SUMMARY

An attack on the host of a fancy tea party sends Theodosia Browning looking for answers in the latest entry in the New York Times bestselling series.

Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier, Drayton Conneley, are catering a Victorian Christmas party at a swanky mansion in downtown Charleston. Drucilla Heyward, the hostess, is one of the wealthiest women in town.

As the champagne flows and the tea steeps, Drucilla is so pleased with the reception by her partygoers that she reveals her secret plan to Theodosia. The Grande Dame has brought the cream of Charleston society together to reveal that she is planning to give her wealth away to various charitable organizations. However, before she can make the announcement, Theodosia finds her crumpled unconscious in the hallway. It looks like the excitement has gotten to the elderly woman--except that there is a syringe sticking out of her neck.
