harstan More than 1 year ago
In Charleston, South Carolina, the annual Spring Plantation Ramble gala begins as the city¿s affluent open their gardens to the public. A festive atmosphere permeates the entire town as flower shows and rare plant auctions are everywhere. Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning loves the annual event that symbolizes spring to her and not just because business booms which it does during the festivity. She just loves the flowering of Charleston that the Ramble represents. This year she has the added pleasure of selling her new brew, Dragonwell Sweet Tea. --- Theodosia and her master tea blender Drayton provide the tea stand as a favor to the Broad Street Garden Club at the Carthage Place Plantation where a rare plant auction occurs. Commodities broker Mark Congdon has the high bid for a rare monkey-face orchid for $900. Mark is euphoric over his win, but almost immediate his body goes into a violent fit with foam coming out of his mouth. In spite of Theodosia¿s CPR efforts he dies. Everyone assumes it is a fatal heart attack until Sheriff Billings¿ report states cause of death is unspecified toxin. Mark¿s widow Angie asks Theodosia, who has solved some mysteries, to investigate her husband¿s death she reluctantly agrees as her tea is considered the prime suspect by many. --- As always with a Tea Shop Mystery, readers will appreciate Theodosia¿s investigation as this time she has the motive of clearing her tea¿s reputation. The story line is fast-paced as the heroine makes inquiries including out of state that frighten a killer who believes the shop owner may be getting to close to reading the tea leaves. Fans of the series will enjoy this amateur sleuth¿s latest exploits while savoring the Indigo Tea Shop¿s recipes with some tips to improve your brewing techniques. --- Harriet Klausner
