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)

3.5 out of 5 stars rounded up.

Ming Tea Murder by Laura Childs is the 16th book in the Tea Shop Mystery series. This series is one of the first cozy mystery series I read and it introduced me to the world that is cozy mysteries. I discovered this series about 10 years ago while I was working as a bookshelver in my public library. I kept shelving these mysteries so I knew they were popular and I finally picked one up and read it. I haven't missed one since.

This is one of my least favorite books in the series. I felt like the beginning of the book was very stilted and it almost made me say "Did someone else write this beginning?" However, it did get better as it went on.

Of course, all my favorite characters were back, Theodosia, Haley, Drayton and I was thrilled to be reunited with them. For the first time in this series, I did figure out the murderer very early on; usually Ms. Childs has me guessing until the very end.

The book beyond the first few chapters was well-written. While, I wouldn't call this the best installment in the series by far, it was decent. I'm still looking forward to more in the series. ( )

3-3.5 stars. (Rating shown may differ depending on whether site allows half star ratings.)

This is a series I've enjoyed and I'm going back and requesting titles I missed reading from my library.

I wished we'd learned more about the Chinese tea house--the history of it or of tea houses in general in China, symbolism of tea or the tea house in the Chinese culture, etc.

In a rare scoop for me, I guessed early on who the perpetrator was--from his/her first major appearance. (Yes, I did page to the back of the book to confirm my suspicion.) I normally don't figure out "whodunit"--so for those who are good sleuths, you may find this too simple. ( )

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

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. ( )

With drums banging and the sweet notes of a Chinese violin trembling in the air, the enormous red-and-gold dragon shook its great head and danced its way across the rotunda of the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, South Carolina.
