"A haunted house with a real-life corpse land tea maven Theodosia Browning in hot water in this latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series. Tea maven Theodosia Browning and her tea sommelier, Drayton Conneley, are catering a Victorian Christmas party at a swanky mansion in downtown Charleston for Drucilla Heyward, one of the wealthiest women in town. As the champagne flows and the tea steeps, Drucilla is so pleased with the reception by her partygoers that she reveals her secret plan to Theodosia. The Grande Dame has brought the cream of Charleston society together to reveal that she is planning to give her wealth away to various charitable organizations. However, before she can make the announcement, Theodosia finds her crumpled unconscious in the hallway. It looks like the excitement has gotten to the elderly woman--except that there is a syringe sticking out of her neck"-- Provided by publisher.

    Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston's Indigo Tea Shop, is ready to serve the food at the ultra-wealthy philanthropist Drucilla Heyward's Christmas party when she finds the hostess dead, her fingers stripped of her diamond rings and a Renoir missing from the wall. Theo, along with her tea sommelier and chef, admirers of the philanthropist, investigate at the request of her personal assistant Pauline Stauber. A handyman, a neighbor, and an art dealer are just the beginning of the list of suspects, which eventually includes Pauline herself. Between offering a series of holiday-themed teas, running her shop, and fostering a rowdy group of dogs, Theo plows forward with her sleuthing. Framed by its lovingly described Charleston setting, warm holiday atmosphere, tea lore, and delicious food, this entry in Childs' long-running cozy series concludes with recipes and tips for hosting specialty teas. Pair this one with Kate Kingsbury's debut tea-shop mystery, In Hot Water (2021). Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
