Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The narrow cobblestone alleys of Charleston are bustling with shoppers looking for bargains on antiques, heaping bowls of crab chowder - and of course Theodosia Browning's delicious teas. But when the clock strikes ten, the alleys clear, except for one body - discovered by a horrified Theodosia. It's the strangled form of Daria, the map store's owner.
Many locals have shown interest in buying Daria's shop - but enough to kill? Plus there's the customer hell-bent on getting his hands on a certain not-for-sale map. One can hardly throw a scone without hitting a suspect. Most alarming, however, is Detective Tidwell's theory- that the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia. Because that would mean the killer's work isn't yet done . . .
'A delightful series that will leave readers feeling as if they have shared a warm cup of tea on Church Street in Charleston.' The Mystery Reader
'Tea lovers, mystery lovers, this is for you. Just the right blend of cozy fun and clever plotting.' Susan Wittig Albert, bestselling author of The Tale of Oat Cake Crag
'Theodosia's dogged yet always elegant sleuthing is as satisfying as sipping a cup of jade oolong.' Publishers Weekly
Includes delicious recipes and tea time tips!
