Childs' 2nd book
2nd in the Tea Shop Mysteries featuring Theodosia Browning
Berkley Prime Crime Mystery
Tea shop owner Theodosia Browning knows that something's brewing in the high society of Charleston - something other than her newest tea...
The Indigo Tea Shop, Charleston's favorite spot of tea, has just come out with its latest flavor: Gunpowder Green. Theodosia Browning cannot wait to hear its praises as it is unveiled at the annual yacht race. But when she hears the crack of an antique gun meant to end the race, a member of Charleston's elite falls dead. Theodosia has a hunch that his demise was no accident - and will go out of her way to prove it. But if she doesn't act fast, Theo will find herself in hot water with some boiling-mad Charlestonians - and more than a little gun-chai...
This is a buddy read for ARM. I started reading it yesterday on the train and I really enjoy it. It is just great to meet all the characters again!
Oh, one thing: Actually, the latest flavor from the Indigo Tea Shop is not Gunpowder Green (a delicious green tea, I'll drink while reading the book, by the way), but a blend of Gunpowder Green and fresh mint.
