    4 stelle e mezza Negli ultimi mesi ho letto un sacco di libri di questa autrice, ma le sue due serie che sto seguendo sono fra le mie favorite. Meno male che continua a scriverle entrambe! Questo libro mi piaciuto, soprattutto per i soliti, numerosi riferimenti al mondo del t. P...

    Theodosia's old boyfriend, Jory Davis, returns to town after the death of his sister, newscaster Abby Davis. 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, D...

    I'm very excited to be reading this book. I love this series, great Charleston Tea Shop atmosphere, and lots of fun, light harmless mysteries. This book was definitely one of the best in the series. ...

    Of course I loved the book as Laura Childs is my first love when it comes to cozy mysteries. A couple of things I liked that were mentioned in the book were the Lamplighter Tour. I would love to be able to tour some historic homes. I also liked Drayton's superstitions when it comes to ...

    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'...

    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 o...

    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 rea...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 we...

    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 ...

    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 so...

    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 t...

    #10 in the Charleston, S.C. tea shop owner Theodosia Browning mystery series. As usual in the series, Theo finds a dead body and becomes involved in solving the murder. This is an enjoyable series with a lot of tea information, well developed supporting characters with a good mix of Th...

    I grabbed this more or less at random at the library. It's the tenth in a series, apparently, and it's not bad. The protagonist runs a frou-frou tea shoppe in Charleston, S.C. and gets dragged into murders. Fine. The mystery itself is OK, but the descriptions of the various types...

    The atmosphere of the tea room, and Charleston in particular, is always enjoyable. I love reading about the teas and all the different soups, tea sandwiches, desserts, etc. which Haley cooks up. Theo, Drayton and Delaine are always an interesting group! This ended up being one of my...

    I just finished this book. As soon as I found out Ms. Childs had a new book out, I bought it. These are "cozy" mysteries and easy to read when you just feel like relaxing. I love the Tea Shop as well as the Scrapbooking Mysteries. ...

    Very enjoyable read. Even if you don't care for this type of mystery, the recipes are worth getting the book. Strawberry Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Pineapple Tea Sandwiches, Chocolate Sour Cream Scones, plus many more. The tea tips arn't too shabby either. ...

    Fun, easy read. Nice tea poem. ...

    always enjoy these characters ...

    An OK mystery about the adventures of a tea shop lady in Charleston, SC. There ae recipes for your tea party and a generally cozy tea shop atmosphere, a harrowing adventure, making for an easy read. ...

    Another fun mystery in this tea shop series. ...

    These books are very light. I started reading the series because I had been in Charleston. Theodosia is so perfect in the previous books you almost dislike her. In this one she seemed more human. ...

    I really loved this book! Laura Childs does it again! ...

    Always a good read and again I learned more about tea. It was a bit more involved than some of the other ones. ...

    An easy, light read. Her best book yet. ...

    Of course I loved the book as Laura Childs is my first love when it comes to cozy mysteries. A couple of things I liked that were mentioned in the book were the Lamplighter Tour. I would love to be able to tour some historic homes. I also liked Drayton's superstitions when it comes to ...

    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'...

    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 o...

    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 rea...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 we...

    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 ...

    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 so...

    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 t...

    #10 in the Charleston, S.C. tea shop owner Theodosia Browning mystery series. As usual in the series, Theo finds a dead body and becomes involved in solving the murder. This is an enjoyable series with a lot of tea information, well developed supporting characters with a good mix of Th...

    Ms. Childs' tea cozy mysteries are nice, predictible reads with a cast of eccentric recurring characters set in Charleston, South Carolina. Each book usually includes a murder or some other crime solved by Indigo teashop owner, Theodosia Browning. The best part of the books for me are ...

    I grabbed this more or less at random at the library. It's the tenth in a series, apparently, and it's not bad. The protagonist runs a frou-frou tea shoppe in Charleston, S.C. and gets dragged into murders. Fine. The mystery itself is OK, but the descriptions of the various types...

    The atmosphere of the tea room, and Charleston in particular, is always enjoyable. I love reading about the teas and all the different soups, tea sandwiches, desserts, etc. which Haley cooks up. Theo, Drayton and Delaine are always an interesting group! This ended up being one of my...

    I just finished this book. As soon as I found out Ms. Childs had a new book out, I bought it. These are "cozy" mysteries and easy to read when you just feel like relaxing. I love the Tea Shop as well as the Scrapbooking Mysteries. ...

    Very enjoyable read. Even if you don't care for this type of mystery, the recipes are worth getting the book. Strawberry Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Pineapple Tea Sandwiches, Chocolate Sour Cream Scones, plus many more. The tea tips arn't too shabby either. ...

    Fun, easy read. Nice tea poem. ...

    always enjoy these characters ...

    An OK mystery about the adventures of a tea shop lady in Charleston, SC. There ae recipes for your tea party and a generally cozy tea shop atmosphere, a harrowing adventure, making for an easy read. ...

    Another fun mystery in this tea shop series. ...

    These books are very light. I started reading the series because I had been in Charleston. Theodosia is so perfect in the previous books you almost dislike her. In this one she seemed more human. ...

    I really loved this book! Laura Childs does it again! ...

    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 ...

    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 so...

    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 t...

    #10 in the Charleston, S.C. tea shop owner Theodosia Browning mystery series. As usual in the series, Theo finds a dead body and becomes involved in solving the murder. This is an enjoyable series with a lot of tea information, well developed supporting characters with a good mix of Th...

    Ms. Childs' tea cozy mysteries are nice, predictible reads with a cast of eccentric recurring characters set in Charleston, South Carolina. Each book usually includes a murder or some other crime solved by Indigo teashop owner, Theodosia Browning. The best part of the books for me are ...

    I grabbed this more or less at random at the library. It's the tenth in a series, apparently, and it's not bad. The protagonist runs a frou-frou tea shoppe in Charleston, S.C. and gets dragged into murders. Fine. The mystery itself is OK, but the descriptions of the various types...

    The atmosphere of the tea room, and Charleston in particular, is always enjoyable. I love reading about the teas and all the different soups, tea sandwiches, desserts, etc. which Haley cooks up. Theo, Drayton and Delaine are always an interesting group! This ended up being one of my...

    I just finished this book. As soon as I found out Ms. Childs had a new book out, I bought it. These are "cozy" mysteries and easy to read when you just feel like relaxing. I love the Tea Shop as well as the Scrapbooking Mysteries. ...

    Very enjoyable read. Even if you don't care for this type of mystery, the recipes are worth getting the book. Strawberry Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Pineapple Tea Sandwiches, Chocolate Sour Cream Scones, plus many more. The tea tips arn't too shabby either. ...

    Fun, easy read. Nice tea poem. ...

    always enjoy these characters ...

    An OK mystery about the adventures of a tea shop lady in Charleston, SC. There ae recipes for your tea party and a generally cozy tea shop atmosphere, a harrowing adventure, making for an easy read. ...

    4 stelle e mezza Negli ultimi mesi ho letto un sacco di libri di questa autrice, ma le sue due serie che sto seguendo sono fra le mie favorite. Meno male che continua a scriverle entrambe! Questo libro mi piaciuto, soprattutto per i soliti, numerosi riferimenti al mondo del t. P...

    Theodosia's old boyfriend, Jory Davis, returns to town after the death of his sister, newscaster Abby Davis. 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, D...

    I'm very excited to be reading this book. I love this series, great Charleston Tea Shop atmosphere, and lots of fun, light harmless mysteries. This book was definitely one of the best in the series. ...

    Of course I loved the book as Laura Childs is my first love when it comes to cozy mysteries. A couple of things I liked that were mentioned in the book were the Lamplighter Tour. I would love to be able to tour some historic homes. I also liked Drayton's superstitions when it comes to ...

    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'...

    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 o...

    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 rea...

    4 stelle e mezza Negli ultimi mesi ho letto un sacco di libri di questa autrice, ma le sue due serie che sto seguendo sono fra le mie favorite. Meno male che continua a scriverle entrambe! Questo libro mi piaciuto, soprattutto per i soliti, numerosi riferimenti al mondo del t. P...

    Theodosia's old boyfriend, Jory Davis, returns to town after the death of his sister, newscaster Abby Davis. 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, D...

    I'm very excited to be reading this book. I love this series, great Charleston Tea Shop atmosphere, and lots of fun, light harmless mysteries. This book was definitely one of the best in the series. ...

    Of course I loved the book as Laura Childs is my first love when it comes to cozy mysteries. A couple of things I liked that were mentioned in the book were the Lamplighter Tour. I would love to be able to tour some historic homes. I also liked Drayton's superstitions when it comes to ...

    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'...

    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 o...

    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 rea...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 we...

    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 ...

    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 so...

    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 t...

    #10 in the Charleston, S.C. tea shop owner Theodosia Browning mystery series. As usual in the series, Theo finds a dead body and becomes involved in solving the murder. This is an enjoyable series with a lot of tea information, well developed supporting characters with a good mix of Th...

    Ms. Childs' tea cozy mysteries are nice, predictible reads with a cast of eccentric recurring characters set in Charleston, South Carolina. Each book usually includes a murder or some other crime solved by Indigo teashop owner, Theodosia Browning. The best part of the books for me are ...

    I grabbed this more or less at random at the library. It's the tenth in a series, apparently, and it's not bad. The protagonist runs a frou-frou tea shoppe in Charleston, S.C. and gets dragged into murders. Fine. The mystery itself is OK, but the descriptions of the various types...

    The atmosphere of the tea room, and Charleston in particular, is always enjoyable. I love reading about the teas and all the different soups, tea sandwiches, desserts, etc. which Haley cooks up. Theo, Drayton and Delaine are always an interesting group! This ended up being one of my...

    I just finished this book. As soon as I found out Ms. Childs had a new book out, I bought it. These are "cozy" mysteries and easy to read when you just feel like relaxing. I love the Tea Shop as well as the Scrapbooking Mysteries. ...

    Very enjoyable read. Even if you don't care for this type of mystery, the recipes are worth getting the book. Strawberry Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Pineapple Tea Sandwiches, Chocolate Sour Cream Scones, plus many more. The tea tips arn't too shabby either. ...

    Fun, easy read. Nice tea poem. ...

    always enjoy these characters ...

    An OK mystery about the adventures of a tea shop lady in Charleston, SC. There ae recipes for your tea party and a generally cozy tea shop atmosphere, a harrowing adventure, making for an easy read. ...

    Another fun mystery in this tea shop series. ...

    These books are very light. I started reading the series because I had been in Charleston. Theodosia is so perfect in the previous books you almost dislike her. In this one she seemed more human. ...

    I really loved this book! Laura Childs does it again! ...

    Always a good read and again I learned more about tea. It was a bit more involved than some of the other ones. ...

    An easy, light read. Her best book yet. ...

    I enjoy the Tea Shop Mysteries. A good read. ...

    I adore this series. I cannot wait for the next installment. ...

    The number of times I thought "Cherry Ames for adults" or "Nancy Drew for adults" during reading this was ridiculous. Constant commentary on the clothing, the decorations, the food, the types of tea, the teacups, the colours of the plates, the 'delightful' or 'picturesque' cottage that...
