The bestselling author of Oolong Dead serves up an Old-World treat, spiced with a Sherlock Holmes-style murder mystery.

It was the Dickensian evening Theodosia Browning had been hoping for. Charleston shop-owners dressed in cloaks of yore threw open their back doors to visitors, who took advantage of bargains and Theodosia's delicious teas.

But later, the alleys clear except for one body- which a horrified Theodosia discovers. It's Daria, the map store's owner. Locals have shown interest in buying her shop-but enough to kill? Plus there's been a customer hell-bent on acquiring a not-for­sale map. Most alarming of all theories, however, is Detective Tidwell's: the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia. And if that theory holds, the killer's work isn't done.

Almost, almost convinces me to be a tea drinker. The Indigo Tea Shop is as delightful as ever. Drayton is as formal and unflappable as ever, Haley's cooking is as delicious as ever and Theodosia has just as a dramatic , life-threatening encounter with the killer as ever. In short, business as usual.

Love the Tea Shop mysteries. Usually read these in one day I have to find out who the killer is. Holds your interest from start to end. Drayton and Tidwell are my favourites in the story.

Plenty of action, not too much suspense. Fun to read. I always enjoy this series.
