The latest in the Tea Shop Mysteries is pretty much standard fare for this series.

Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop, is asked to investigate the murder of a financier, shot with a crossbow during a public event.  There are the usual twists and turns involving the colorful characters who people Charleston and Theodosia is confronted by more than a couple of the less pleasant ones.

This is a “cozy” is all senses of the word.  I was constantly compelled to “put the kettle on” every time pots of tea were being prepared in the tea shop and only regretted that I didn’t have any scones to go along with my cuppa!  Childs provides a good little mystery along with some delicious recipes.  The perfect combination for a pleasant summer’s day!
