Description
In the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs, Theodosia Browning attends a "Rat Tea," where the mice will play...at murder. When Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning is invited by Doreen Briggs, one of Charleston's most prominent hostesses, to a "Rat Tea," she is understandably intrigued. As servers dressed in rodent costumes and wearing white gloves offer elegant finger sandwiches and fine teas, Theo learns these parties date back to early twentieth-century Charleston, where the cream of society would sponsor so-called rat teas to promote city rodent control and better public health. But this party goes from odd to chaotic when a fire starts at one of the tables and Doreen's entrepreneur husband suddenly goes into convulsions and drops dead. Has his favorite orange pekoe tea been poisoned? Theo smells a rat. The distraught Doreen soon engages Theo to pursue a discreet inquiry into who might have murdered her husband. As Theo and her tea sommelier review the guest list for suspects, they soon find themselves drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse... INCLUDES RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPSFrom the Hardcover edition.

        February 20, 2017
        At the start of Childs’s lively, entertaining 18th Tea Shop mystery (after 2016’s Devonshire Scream), Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop in Charleston, S.C., and her friend and tea sommelier, debonair Drayton Conneley, arrive at an extravagant tea party hosted by philanthropist Doreen Briggs and her entrepreneurial husband, Beau, whose most recent venture is a swanky spa. Shortly after an elaborately costumed waiter knocks over a candle, causing a centerpiece to go up in flames, Theodosia saves the day by dousing the fire with a pot of tea, but, seconds later, Beau drops dead. Theodosia recognizes the symptoms of poison. Impressed by her quick thinking, Doreen asks Theodosia to investigate. Who would want to kill good old Beau? As Theodosia digs deeper into the man’s life, possible answers to that question start popping up thick and fast. An attempt is made on Drayton’s life and a second death occurs, leaving Theodosia to fear that she’ll be the next victim. The delightful narrative is chock-full of tea lore and tea tips, plus a wide selection of recipes for cakes, sandwiches, cookies, scones, and muffins. Agent: Sam Pinkus, Keystone Literary Agency.
