A Murder Most Fishy

Happy Monday All,

A busy week gave way to a busy weekend. My family from out-of-town made it safely home, and I approached the weekend a bit overwhelmed. However, other than the fact that Sunday afternoon offspring threw up, it was a nice weekend (prayers for offspring to get better would be wonderful and much appreciated!)

Since Offspring was sick Sunday afternoon, I'm not sure how often I will be able to check in during Monday, however, I will do my best. Please be patient--all comments are moderated by me before they are published in the comment section of this blog (for some reason this has solved some of the commenting difficulties people were experiencing when trying to post a comment on here).

Now, onto something happier and much more fun...an official blog review!

Some of you have seen some of my official blog reviews I've done for Mystery author, Laura Childs, and for those of you who have not, hope you enjoy my review of Agony Of The Leaves...

What’s better than a cup of tea and a scone? How about solving a murder? What about solving your ex-boyfriend’s murder?

That’s what Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston’s Indigo Tea Shop finds herself doing when she discovers the dead body of her ex-boyfriend, Parker Scully floating in a tank at the Neptune Aquarium during a private party the tea shop is helping to cater.

While the police department first deems it an accident, things don’t add up for Theo. There’s no way Parker would’ve drowned in that tank. Plus there’s the marks on his hands…aren’t they defense wounds?

Theodosia makes up her mind that no matter what the Police Department thinks, or what Detective Tidwell says, she’s going to investigate.

But when she becomes the target of a black truck trying to run her off the road, and her dear Aunt Libby the target of a bee attack (which considering the circumstances of the bees’ attack, looks intentional), will Theodosia manage the solve the mystery of who-done-it in time to save her own life…or is she next?

Once again, Mystery author, Laura Childs mixes the comfort of a hot cup of tea, the sweetness of a pastry with mystery, crime, and a hint of suspense that’ll keep you guessing until the end.

Oh and here's a first:  Laura actually has a book trailer for this one! You can check it out here.

You can pick up a copy of Agony Of The Leaves, the newest Tea Shop Mystery, on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at Amazon and also available at Barnes & Noble.
Have A Marvelous Monday!

The whole time I was reading I was thinking Lisa Childs. That was very wrong; I Googled her name. (Actually I use Bing, way cooler face page) Her books sound good.
Hope the offspring is doing better. Sick kids can drive a person nuts with worry.

Offspring is perkier today, so I'm watching his temperature to make sure it doesn't get bad or anything, and he's eating stuff easy on the stomach, but he's very cheerful so I'm hopeful.

Her books are good! I hope, if you get to reading them, that you enjoy them.

Thank you for dropping by :-)
