Laura Childs once again has a hit on her hands. In book nineteen in the Tea Shop Mystery, Theodosia is shocked to find a murdered banker. At first, people believed that the live canons had killed him and caused him to fall onto a fence below but Theodosia soon learns that he was first shot by an arrow before he fell to his death.
This time, there are quite a lot of suspects that could have done this and Childs does a fantastic job of circling the characters and giving each one of them a solid motive. What I love about Childs writing is that she doesn’t waste any time in getting the story started. Within the first few pages, the murder occurs, setting the quick pace for the rest of the book. For me, it’s the expert pacing that makes me devour these books so quickly. I read this in one sitting, proving that this book is very easy to follow yet offers the intricacy of an expert mystery.
For anyone who is curious about this series, this one does have a bit of an English touch to it. This is expected since the series is about tea. However, in this book, the Asian countries do get some recognition so I really liked that as well.
Although this series is long-running, you can definitely read this series out of order. Just make sure you at least try Laura Childs if you’re into Cozy Mysteries. I honestly don’t think there’s another author as good as conjuring up mysteries as well as Childs does.
