An improbable set of intersecting circumstances detracts not at all from this cosy mystery. The new boyfriend Max needs some better rendering other than just being a swoon worthy kisser. ( )

And now I am all caught up. Childs needs to write another book ASAP! ( )

I had been debating whether or not to keep reading the Tea Shop series - it seemed to be getting formulaic for me, but then I thought about how quickly these tend to read and how they are a reading palate cleanser - nice, light, shorter than a main course. So, I picked up the latest yesterday and read it (there's that quick to read part). The killer stayed hidden behind a bunch of red herrings until near the end, when certain events gave me pause to think about this person [but then, there weren't many clues or reasons to support this person as the killer - I didn't care for that as much - just one thing almost thrown out near the beginning].

Things I continue to enjoy: Drayton and Haley's back and forth banter, anything with Earl Grey (the dog), the tea party ideas in the story and the back of the book, Delaine's comic relief interruptions.

Things I could do without: more descriptions of Charleston [it's the 13th book, for crying out loud, it's been described pretty well already], clothing descriptions [that's just a personal issue, as I'm not a big clotheshorse], and how Theo is intimidated/threatened in similar ways to many of the other books in the series [yes, one of the ways was novel in this book, but it immediately followed one that has been really overused].

Childs comes through with another win in this series. Every now and then I enjoy reading a cozy and this series never disappoints. In addition, there are recipes at the end of each book for the food described in the story.

Theodosia's former boyfriend Parker Scully has been murdered at a fund-raising event for the local aquarium. Theo, of course, is investigating. Several people, customers and a few unsavory characters, turn up as suspects. We also get a further lesson in our tea education. ( )

It's an OK mystery -- the identity of the killer was a surprise to me and I expect it will to most readers because it seems totally random. There are several loose ends left after the murder is solved and I suspect these may be carried over to the next in the series to add some momentum. This is the 13th in this series and it looks to me if it may be running out of steam. ( )
