Theodosia Browning owns the Indigo Tea Shop, and she also caters events. While catering a yacht race picnic, her friend Delaine points out Doe Belvedere, who recently wed Oliver Dixon. While this wouldn't be a big deal, there's the fact that Doe is only 25 and her groom is 66. Delaine states it must be because he's rich, but Theodosia says she probably loves him, too. An attractive man comes up to Theodosia and introduces himself as Giovanni Loard, an antique dealer and relative of Oliver's, and takes the tray holding tea sandwiches from her and offers to help, then offering them to people. Theodosia declares him charming, and watches as he eventually makes his way to Oliver's table. At that point, there appears to be an argument between Oliver and another older man who turns out to be Ford Cantrell. When the race is about to end, it is Oliver who must fire a gun into the air, declaring the winner. But when the gun misfires and Oliver is shot in the head, Theo wonders if it was intentional.

When she's asked by Cantrell's sister Lizbeth - who helped her get through her mother's untimely death when Theo was only eight - she can't refuse. But discovering that a long-standing feud between the Dixons and Cantrells might have something to do with it, she needs to work harder to try and discover who wanted Oliver dead. Was it his young widow? His two sons? Or someone else entirely? With little information coming forth from her friend Detective Tidwell, Theo might be in over her head, but something is brewing under the surface, and she needs to find out what it is...

This is the second book in the series, and I liked it as much as the first. Theo is an interesting woman; she's intelligent and strong, warm and caring, and believes that the truth is important, even if she needs to be the one to find it. She's perfectly content with her shop and her employees, and even her dog, Earl Grey. She's not chasing anything better, and having been in the corporate run, this is what she wants.

But when she's asked to help, she doesn't shy away from what might be sticky situations. Even when she's threatened, she stands her ground, and that makes her even more endearing. What it leads to is looking even deeper and perhaps putting herself in even more danger to get to find a killer. The plot is drawn nicely, and there are plenty of twists along the way, and enough suspects that lead us to think that it might be one when it's actually someone else. It's a delightful mystery that comes to an even more enticing conclusion, with the murderer of course being apprehended and the motive one that will never change over time. Recommended. ( )

Theo is doing a little poking around again...but this time it is the murder of a Charleston elite. This time she has a little bit of help from Drayton and Haley...but she also gets help from Burt Tidwell. Another page turner, I just couldn't put it down. ( )

A nicely written sequel to her first book. A cozy mystery with plenty of suspense, mystery and tea. Looking forward to reading more of this series. ( )

So this is book two of the Tea Shop Mystery series (Cozy Mysteries). I’m liking this! It’s quaint, it’s light with the same characters you’ve got to know and become attached to in the first one. What the reader will love besides a nice lighthearted mystery, is the nice descriptive setting of Charleston. Also, if you’re a tea lover, you’ll enjoy the various descriptions of teas. One particular part that stood out for me was the “mystery tea” event. This scene stood out because the atmosphere and feeling was extremely well done and written. It was like the reader was part of the setting and taking a part in the event.

The one thing I do have to mention regarding this book, although the characters are extremely likable, and they’re well rounded out, the plot itself was a bit predictable and one could be able to guess who the culprit was. I hope this doesn’t happen in the next one as I’ll definitely continue reading this series.

Perfect choice for tea and mystery cozy lovers alike. It’s a great continuation after the first novel and I hope the others following will be just as good. ( )
