I devoured the first 6 in this series and then somehow lost track of the author. It was a pleasant surprise to see this one appear on my Netgalley account. Being a tea drinker in a coffee world and having a strong affection for cozy mysteries is what first attracted me to this series. The main character Theodosia is still going strong. What I like about this character is that she has common sense and an intelligent mind which makes her adventures even better. In this story there is no shortage of interesting suspects as well as characters in Theodosia’s work and personal life.
The book will be released on March 6 but in the mean time grab any and all of the previous books in the series and enjoy!
Theodosia Browning investigates a Charleston steeped in tradition and treachery in the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs.
While viewing the harbor’s Gaslights and Galleons Parade from the widow’s walk of Timothy Neville’s Charleston mansion, local banker Carson Lanier seemingly tumbles over a narrow railing, then plunges three stories to his death. But a tragic accident becomes something much more sinister when it’s discovered that the victim was first shot with a bolt from a crossbow.
At the request of the mansion owner, Theodosia investigates the tragedy and is soon neck deep in suspects. An almost ex-wife, a coworker, a real estate partner–all had motives for killing the luckless banker, but one resorted to murder to settle accounts.
