AGONY OF THE LEAVES
the 13th novel in the Tea Shop Mystery series by Laura Childs is scheduled to be released today, March 6th.
I am one of the tea bloggers who received an advance copy of this book.
Theodosia Browning, owner of the Charleston Indigo Tea Shop, discovers a familiar body floating in one of the tanks at the grand opening of Charleston's Neptune Aquarium where she Haley and Drayton are catering tea, scones, and sandwiches for a private party to honor dignitaries and big donors.
Was the drowning an accident as first determined, or a murder?
Theodosa becomes involved in the investigation and is determined to find the murderer.
This one was not easily solved, but Theodosa did.
The murderer was not obvious to me until very near the end of the book.
This book also includes recipes, tea time tips and a list of tea resources.
