LET'S GET COZY! MING TEA MURDER : A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
MING TEA MURDER
A Tea Shop Mystery
BY LAURA CHILDS

ABOUT THE BOOK:
It’s scones and scandal for Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Steeped in Evil…

Normally Theodosia wouldn’t attend a black tie affair for all the tea in China. But she can hardly say no to her hunky, handsome boyfriend, Max, who directs public relations for the Gibbes Museum in Charleston. Max has organized an amazing gala opening for an exhibit of a genuine eighteenth century Chinese teahouse, and the crème de la crème of Charleston society is invited.

In the exotic garden staged in the museum’s rotunda, a Chinese dragon dances to the beat of drums as it weaves through the crowd. The guests are serenaded by a Chinese violin as they sample an assortment of tempting bites. And to give them a memento of the occasion, there’s even a photo booth. But Theodosia makes a grim discovery behind the booth’s curtains: the body of museum donor Edgar Webster.

While Theodosia prefers tea service over the service of justice, this case is difficult to ignore—especially after Max becomes a suspect. Now she must examine the life of the fallen philanthropist and find out who really wanted him to pay up…

INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

On her FAQs, she talks about visiting tea shops. I once visited a Chinese one and was treated by the owner to $250 an ounce tea. It was amazing!
