Death by Darjeeling By Laura Childs. Book Review No.20

death by darjeeling by laura childs
Meet Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston's beloved Indigo Tea Shop. Patrons love her blend of delicious tea tastings and southern hospitality. And Theo enjoys the full-bodied flavor of a town steeped in history -- and mystery... — It's tea for two hundred or so at the annual historic homes garden party. And Theodosia, as event caterer, is busy serving steaming teas and blackberry scones while guests sing her praises. But the sweet smell of success turns to suspense when an esteemed guest is found dead -- his hand clutching an empty teacup. All eyes are on Theo... who is now trying desperately to save her reputation and track down the real killer. If only she can make sense of it all--before someone else takes their last sip
I confess that I found this book after typing ‘tea shop’ into the search bar at Amazon. Such is my love of reading novels based in around or about tea.
This is the first in the Tea Shop Mystery books, of which there seems to be quite a few and of which I will be buying. These are fabulously sized little books that fit nicely into my already over stuffed hand bag.
I really enjoyed this, although the mystery was light and certainly wouldn’t win any prizes, the characters are great and all the tea talk is exactly what I wanted out of this book.
After finding this series, I was interested to see that there are mystery books written about any hobby you can think of, scrap booking, knitting, witch craft, baking, vintage.
A whole new world has just been opened up to me.

  1. I am looking for some books to read. Since I recently finished college I have so much time on the bus travelling to and from work so now I’m on the lookout for good books.
