Theodosia Browning has been asked to host a luncheon to benefit the Charleston Opera Society, which is throwing a Verdi-themed Masked Ball. She certainly has a lot on her mind - especially after she finds the dead body of her arch nemesis, Abby Davis. To further complicate things, the victim's brother happens to be Theodosia's old flame. Who'd have guessed they'd be reunited through cold-blooded murder? As the opera house is transformed into a sumptuous Venetian carnival, Theodosia's investigation into Abby's murder takes her to the backstage maze of a darkened theatre. It's here that a maestro of murder waits for the next cue. All proving that when it comes to high drama, Theodosia can give Verdi a run for his money . . .'Murder suite Laura Childs to a Tea.' St Paul Pioneer Press 'Theodosia's dogged yet always elegant sleuthing is as satisfying as sipping a cup of jade oolong.' Publishers Weekly Includes delicious recipes and tea time tips!

An enjoyable cosy. Always nice to meet up with Drayton and Haley again. Theo is conveniently rewarded which will no doubt be expanded on in the next instalment.

I really enjoyed this Tea Shop mystery. Kind of disappointed when Theo sort of kind of almost let Jory back into her life.

I have read serveral of the "tea shop mysteries" and I believe Childs is improving but, she still tends to put in atleast one scene that really isn't necessary and doesn't always tie up loose ends. These are easy to read novels and I love that her boyfriend isn't a police officier or a private detective!

Just like her other tea shop mysteries. Decently good book - but Theodosia is always so fickle, especially in love, and this novel is no exception.

Decent plot line and conclusion. Sympathetic Heroine.

Just discovered this author very recently and have read several of her books in the "Tea Shop Mysteries" as well as her "Scrapbooking" series. But both series are in danger of interchangeable, formulaic plotting which is starting to become boring.
