Plum Tea Crazy - A Review & Giveaway


PLUM TEA CRAZY by Laura Childs
The Nineteenth Tea Shop Mystery

Theodosia Browning and her friend Drayton are enjoying the Gaslights and Galleons Parade from the widow's walk of Timothy's home when a local banker falls to his death. The horrific accident turns out to be murder as it wasn't the fall that killed him, but rather the quarrel he was shot with! Now Theo is off and running, literally, as she tries to catch a killer.

I'm delighted to return to the Indigo Tea Shop to spend time with Theo and the gang. As always, I wish I could try some of Drayton's tea blends, not to mention Theo's T-bath products and Hailey's treats. I love the plum blossom motif and how it contrasts with the antique weapon angle. It proves a fitting combination for the mystery as well as the behind the scenes relationships.

Theo is a bit more eager to get involved in murder than perhaps she should be, running blindly after a killer with only Drayton behind her (no offense, Drayton) when she doesn't even know what's going on or who could be involved. And doing some, not quite legal, digging for answers. Still, this is her nineteenth outing and so with plenty of experience behind her, I guess she feels competent. It's no secret that Theo does love the adrenalin rush, whether from solving murders or going for a run, even without chasing any criminals!

PLUM TEA CRAZY is a fast paced, action packed mystery with tons of fun and tea! I devoured this book, reading it quickly as it spurred me on to keep turning pages as I was so caught up in the action. One scene in particular is still fresh in my mind, it was so memorable. I still find myself chuckling, I won't give any spoilers, but watch out for a certain fashion show!

Recipes and Tea Time Tips included.
