Summary, etc.:
"Tea-Maven Theodosia Browning brews up trouble in the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs. Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier Drayton Conneley are guests at a bird hunt styled in the precise manner of an English shooting party. Which means elevenses (sloe gin fizzes), gun loaders, the drawing of pegs, fine looking bird dogs, and shooting costumes of tweed, herringbone, and suede. But as gunshots explode like a riff of Black Cat firecrackers, another shot sounds too close for comfort to Theodosia and Drayton. Intrigued but worried, Theodosia wanders into the neighbor's lavender field where she discovers their host, Reginald Doyle, bleeding to death. His wife, Meredith, is beside herself with grief and begs Theodosia and Drayton to stay the night. But Theodosia awakens at 2:00A.M. to find smoke in her room and the house on fire. As the fire department screams in and the investigating sheriff returns, Meredith again pleads with Theodosia for help. As Theodosia investigates, fingers are pointed, secrets are uncovered, Reginald's daughter-in-law goes missing presumed drowned, and Meredith is determined to find answers via a séance. All the while Theodosia worries if she's made a mistake in inviting a prime suspect to her upscale Lavender Lady Tea"--Provided by publisher.

    What begins as an elegant English-style shooting party on a sunny autumn day in South Carolina's low country ends with the host mortally shot in the chest, his mansion in flames, and most of the guests, plus some neighbors, plausible suspects. Among the guests of Reginald and Meredith Doyle are Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston's Indigo Tea Shop, and her tea sommelier, Drayton Conneley. The now-widowed Meredith asks Theo for help in finding the killer, leaning on Theo in the following days, even as Theo is trying to run her business and stay out of the investigation, as urged by her boyfriend, Charleston police detective Pete Riley. The lusciously described themed tea parties at the shop provide the backdrop for her inquiries, as Theo seeks to learn who among the other guests, neighboring estate owners, and business partners had motive to kill. Childs includes recipes from the tearoom, as well as tips for successful tea parties, expanding the appeal to lovers of tea and Southern culture. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
