I’m a big Laura Childs fan but this is the first book that I’ve read from her Tea Shop Mysteries series. I know what you’re thinking, this series is probably the one she is most famous for, but I did a little backtracking and out of order reading so now I’m just getting myself acquainted with Theo and the gang. Not surprisingly I love it.
Despite the fact that I haven’t read the other books in the series, it was incredibly easy to get into this book. Theo is such a wonderful character and when compared to the other two Childs series, I would say she is the most reserved heroine out of all of them. I want to say that she’s a little more proper and less likely to piss other people off in order to find out what happened. However, she is still an amazing amateur sleuth.
In this book, the host of a tea party drops dead in the middle of his speech and obviously everyone is just shocked over the event. Theo seems to be the only level headed one in the bunch and she kickstarts an investigation immediately. I liked that this book was so easy to follow. I think that’s why these books are so popular, they are simple yet Childs doesn’t make them predictable. There’s enough interesting twists and turns to keep readers guessing until the very last page.
I’m so happy to have finally start this series and I look forward to going back and catching up on the previous books in the series.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
