Normally Theodosia wouldn't attend a black tie affair for all the tea in China. But she can hardly say no to her hunky, handsome boyfriend, Max, who directs public relations for the Gibbes Museum in Charleston. Max has organized an amazing gala opening for an exhibit of a genuine eighteenth century Chinese teahouse, and the creme de la creme of Charleston society is invited. In the exotic garden staged in the museum's rotunda, a Chinese dragon dances to the beat of drums as it weaves through the crowd. The guests are serenaded by a Chinese violin as they sample an assortment of tempting bites. And to give them a memento of the occasion, there's even a photo booth. But Theodosia makes a grim discovery behind the booth's curtains: the body of museum donor Edgar Webster. While Theodosia prefers tea service over the service of justice, this case is difficult to ignore--especially after Max becomes a suspect. Now she must examine the life of the fallen philanthropist and find out who really wanted him to pay up.… (mais)

Read in the time of the covid 19 pandemic so hard to concentrate but had all the features I love in this series. ( )

And the allegedly English salmon was probably Scottish too ( )

Good mystery, even though I had the murdered pinned from the start. As always, I'm craving tea and scones now. Theodosia finds a body at a museum gala. Boyfriend Max is under suspicion and is in danger of losing his job. Other suspects are being attacked. Will Theodosia find the killer before they strike again? ( )

Nothing is better than a cozy mystery and the wonderful tea and food mentioned in Laura Childs's latest novel. I would love to have Theodosia's shop and her employees. The characters could be better developed, but still the story is fun with all the silly events and people. Max does not seem too upset about his loss of a job, and the police seem not involved in the murders. Laura Childs provides fashion, elegance, impressive food to sway the reader away from lack of character and setting and plot. The journey is whimsical and fun. ( )

This an easy read cozy murder mystery story -- it doesn't tax the brain too much, but it is still interesting with several good red herrings and false starts in the solution of the mystery. There are several good candidates for the role of the murderer and the solution which comes at the end could be said to be arbitrary.

The tea shop characters are good background and familiar to those of us who have read other books in the series. Actually all the characters are somewhat muted than in other episodes, for example Delaine is tame compared to her antics in other ones (maybe she is bowed by her visiting aunt who is a firecracker).

Max, Theodosia's boyfriend, comes across as a wimp -- not someone a strong person like her would choose. There's no resolution of his status at the museum at the end so I'm thinking he'll take the new job in Savannah and disappear from the next episode.

These stories have not quite reached the stage of being formulaic, but it's getting close.

All in all it's an enjoyable story, the blood and violence is all off stage, and there's plenty of activity other than the investigation to keep you reading the book. ( )
