Book Reporting

Happy Wednesday Everybody,

Hope all is well with you. I'm doing okay. I just finished today a mystery that I was reading.

As mentioned in a previous post, I read Laura Childs' The Teaberry Strangler, number 11 in her Tea Shop Mysteries series.

So as not to spoil the fun for those who follow (or might follow her books), I won't give out too much information, but I will say Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop, amateur investigator extraordinaire strikes again! Not only does she see a murder in progress this time, but come to find out the house she wants to buy undergoes an archaeological dig, thus setting her back on the progress of buying said house.

We are whisked back to the historical parts of Charleston with Theodosia's friends and employees, Haley (amazing chef), Drayton (expert tea blender) and the usual suspects of people that have neighboring shops to her, in particular, Delaine Dish (of the Cotton Duck--clothing store).

Amid the aroma of tea, scones and other delectable food, take a ride with Theodosia as she investigates the crime, avoids an ex-boyfriend, deals with a pesky photographer, and tries her best to work with condescending Detective Tidwell.

I definitely have recommended the series to others. Laura Childs also has Scrapbook Mysteries (set in New Orleans, amid Mardis Gras--at least in one book, Cajun cooking, and Jazz) and The Cackleberry Club Mysteries (eggs, murder and fun).

Have A Wondering Wednesday!
