I’m a big fan of Theodosa. I find these tea mysteries the perfect bed time read. Laura Childs is a creative writer. She sets the stage in old town Charleston at a wonderful tea shop. Then the author leads the way into Theo’s sleuthing. Delicious!
Shades of Earl Grey (A Tea Shop Mystery)

After reading the first book in this series, I immediately purchased ALL the published books in the series. After finishing one, I can't wait to read the next in the series. I love how Laura Childs keeps adding to each of the main characters personalities (and flaws) in each successive book. A GREAT READ!! PLUS if you love "teas" each book has the recipes for many of the dishes in the stories -- all easy to follow, make AND they really are delicious! The author also uses the CHARLESTON. NC area as a fantastic added dimension (plus for those of us NON-NATIVE Southerners a little historical view of the city and the low-country area which surrounds it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys face paced mysteries with memorable characters! It was so enjoyable! I finished it in two days! Wish kindle had the next several but they don't! I wonder why?
just one girl
When something is delicious you can't stop eating it...the same goes for this book...hard to put down...stop reading...and the culinary descriptions also make for a delicious read...yum!
I left my copy on a plane...another reason to load books on your Kindle...the story is very good and I made the chicken and rice recipe...well received by the family.
I just finished the first 3 books in the Tea Shop Mysteries and enjoyed each one. The character development was well done and I truly felt I was sitting in the Tea Shop in Charleston. I'm 2 of 3 in determining who committed the crimes. Excellent.
I have mixed feelings about the book. Yes, it's a cozy book; just right for a bit of light reading before going to bed, but as I move through each book in the series, I'm getting increasingly annoyed at Theo the Amateur Sleuth. She seems to operate without regard to official police process, which in real life could potentially jeopardize the police's work.

On the other hand, I like Theo the Tea Proprietor and would love to "visit" her tea shop. I enjoy that she has a dog named Earl Gray, a type of tea. And I also like how the author ties each book's title to a type of tea and to an element of the book's plot. Some of the tea information seems a bit off, but I can be forgiving of that.

On the other hand (my third hand?), I was appalled at how the author ended this story. I'm not talking about the "who" of the who-dun-it (which I guessed early on), but about where the story actually leaves us. It would never happen this way in real life. I'll say no more lest I spoil the story.

I will keep reading the series for the time being, having already bought them all, but I do hope that Theo is less annoying.
I always want to drink tea when I read her books.
