Theodosia stumbled across her body at a charity equestrian event and Jory, of course, wants her to inquire into her death, along with the police. All the old favorites return, Drayton, Timoth...

    A pleasing entry into an ongoing cozy/amateur sleuth series. I enjoy spending time in the Indigo Tea Shop with Theodosia, Drayton and Haley. In this book, Theodosia is actually invited to do a little investigating by both the police and her ex-boyfriend Jory, as it was his sister Abby Theodosia foun...

    Theodosia finds herself tangled in another murder, finding the body of her ex-boy friend’s sister on a steeple chase course. It doesn’t help that she had a rip-roaring fight with the now deceased TV anchor several months ago in front of witnesses. Theo is drawn further in the web of intrig...

    Another charming tea shop mystery from Laura Childs, where a murder brings Theodosia back into contact with her ex-boyfriend. I love the setting (Charleston and the tea shop) and the connections to society and Gullah culture in this particular mystery were a nice touch. Can't wait to try some of the...

    Theodosia and the gang are back in their latest adventure. Theodosia is entered in a riding event, but when her horse gets spooky, she is thrown to the ground...right next to a dead body. It's Abby Davis, a reporter who verbally attacked Theodosia two months earlier for no apparent reason. Even wors...

    It's funny that for all I am not a tea drinker I desperately wish the Indigo Tea Shop really existed. It's a big reason as to why I keep reading these books.I normally love the interaction between Drayton/Theo/Hayley, along with Tidwell and Parker. Delaine tends to vex me, but she's probably one of ...

    Ok, just finished a cozy mystery, Oolong Dead by Laura Childs. Very lightweight but enjoyable. I actually loved the descriptions of the various oolong teas sampled-I had no idea there were so many!- as well as the locale & the lady sleuth. The plot was not gripping but that didn't bother me. In a se...

    Didn't have a clue on this one, as there wasn't an obscure enough character that stood out as the potential murderer.Ironically enough, when they first started talking about the husband, I thought "when is she going to investigate the spouse in a book, after all, statistics say the spouse is the mos...

    Theo and the gang at the Indigo Tea Shop investigate the murder of Theo's former boyfriend's sister. Theo is asked to investigate by the former boyfriend and the local detective, which is a switch because Det. Tidwell generally wants her to stay out of his cases. She is drawn into a web of deceit, a...

    I enjoyed this. As usual, (view spoiler)[she doesn't actually solve the main mystery here, Abby's murder - she is (as usual in the series) anonymously threatened half way through the book and then kidnapped by the murderer to be taken off and killed. Why can't she work out who it is sometimes? There...
