Perhaps a little slow start but made up for by some fun red herrings, love of tea and a smart and tenacious amateur detective. Sort of like a village cozy murder but with a smart heroine similar to Kerry Greenwood's Corinne Chapman. Fun. ( )

Nice little cosy mystery set-up but slightly forced and didn't quite work in a few places, especially as we jumped POV to potential suspects

Theodorisa (silly name) runs a tea-shop and is just getting her feet underneath her when a businessman dies drinking some of her tea during a street festival. It's soon established the poison was in the cup rather than the pot exonerating her, but rumors spread and so she's forced to chivy the police investigation along a bit to help her business and employees. Too many red herrings are trailed across the path for this to be a well considered mystery, especially with the cutaways to the perpetrator's thoughts (my least favourite writing style). But the blend of foodie fashion cooking tips and crime is always an interesting scenario. ( )

When a developer is poisoned at a society event where Theodosia's tea shop is providing refreshments, she begins to look into the death before it affects her business and employees. A cute, cozy concept, but the execution is a bit clunky.

Theodosia "Theo" Browning owns The Indigo Tea Shop in Charleston. She left a job in advertising because she was tired of well, being tired. Now she has employees she can count on, and a thriving business. She's recently learned from one of her friends that Hughes Barron, a developer, is trying to buy the building next door so he can turn it into condos, as he's done closer to the beach. Her friend is outraged, and figures Theo should be, too. But Theo wants to see what he's up to before she goes off on anyone.

Unfortunately, at a garden party that Theo is catering, the man turns up dead with one of her teacups in his hand. When Detective Burt Tidwell tells her he was poisoned, Theo knows it had to be in the cup, since no one else got sick. But with one of her employees in Tidwell's sights, she decides to do a little sleuthing on her own to see if she can ferret out a killer. Now, with a little help from her friends, Theo's on a mission to find out what's really brewing...

This is the first in the series and I have to say that I like Theo. She's reserved, but it's because she was raised to be a lady in the South. She doesn't go off accusing people, and she doesn't put herself in dangerous situations, nor asks her employees to do so. Most of her information comes from asking people she knows will have the answers, and it's interesting to watch her do so; she even asks her late father's law partner for a favor.

While there wasn't a lot of action in the book, it wasn't supposed to be. Theo is quiet and attractive, thoughtful and intelligent. She owns a dog, Earl Grey, that she adores, and is close with her Aunt Libby, who still lives on the plantation she grew up on. Although there wasn't a lot of description of the surrounding area, I hope that this will be remedied in future books. I have to say that I do love Drayton and would love to have a friend like him.

When the ending comes and the killer is revealed, it was a bit of a surprise, and it's got a different twist how Theo gets herself out of the situation. The reason behind the murder made sense in the murderer's mind, but that's about it. People are going to be what they are, and there isn't anything else you can do about it.

All in all, a nice cozy that can be read in one evening, with a recipe in the back for those who want to try it. I will read the next in the series to see where it goes. Recommended. ( )

I came across this series while I was looking for a different book in a used book store. I looked up the series and decided to read the first book. Wow, what an excellent start to the series. It is definitely a cozy mystery compared to some of the other mystery authors that I like to read. I loved learning the different things about tea. The recipes at the back of the book are a bonus as well. I think that the particular points that really drew me into the story and the book are that it is set in Charleston, South Carolina (I've personally never been there, but would like to go) and I also liked that Drayton went to Johnson & Wales (my alma mater). Great mystery and it kept me guessing throughout while Theo was doing her investigating. I also like that the poison that was used was Aconite... ( )

Theodosia Browning leaned back from the clutter of her antique wooden desk, balanced a bone china cup and saucer on one knee, and took a much-needed sip of Lung Ching tea.
