I was very pleased with this read. I love Laura Childs but I was finding that her books were beginning to be all the same. This was a very good read.

I guess I will have to get used to the new attitude exhibited by Theo since it appeared in the last book. She is certainly less wishy-washy, more assertive and more forceful with people and situations. Although, in her head, which is shared with us, her conversations play out like a Devil's Advocate that we could do without. Perhaps she has just grown into herself. The story is a good one, with red herrings all around - poisoned husband leads to unsuspecting wife, or crooked business partner, or shady venture fund capitalist, with lots of Teas, customers and Tea Shop business. Drayton plays a big role in this one. Always a fun romp in historic Charleston
