Agony of The Leaves

This book is number 13 in the Tea Shop Mysteries.  I am not sure Theo and Drayton would really want to be the Teashop Two as I called them in one of the challenges of the Wicked Wildfire Readerthon and sing show tunes.  But, I know this was an interesting mystery.

Indigo Tea Shop is one of the vendors catering at the opening of Charleston's Neptune Aquarium.  Theodosia is enjoying looking at one of the tanks when she sees a body - it is her former boyfriend, Parker Scully.  Theo notices wounds on his hands and believes it was not an accident but murder and seeks to find the truth.  There are events that she caters including one at her Aunt's home, a coffee and tea expo and a scavenger hunt in the book.  I am trying to be very vague as all the events help Theo and Detective Tidwell bring the guilty to justice.

Of course, Ms. Childs shares recipes and tea tips at the end of the book.  I love the descriptions in the book and love the series so much, I bought the hardback vs waiting for the paperback to come out.
