Summary, etc.:
Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier Drayton Conneley are guests at an English bird hunt. But one shot sounds too close, and when Theodosia wanders into the neighbor's lavender field, she discovers their host, Reginald Doyle, bleeding to death. His grieving wife, Meredith, begs Theodosia and Drayton to stay the night. But after Theodosia awakens to find the house on fire, she begins an investigation that includes finger-pointing, a missing person, and a bid to find answers via a séance. And all the while Theodosia worries if she's made a mistake in inviting a prime suspect to her upscale Lavender Lady Tea.

    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.
