SWEET TEA REVENGE
Childs’ charming cozy has a delightful cast of characters, a murky mystery and enough red herrings to keep a dedicated mystery reader happy. Additionally, you can settle back and enjoy one of Theodosia’s recipes as you read.
Delaine Dish asks her dear friend, tea shop owner Theodosia Browning, to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. On the big day, an ugly storm delays the maid of honor. The groom is also a no-show — he’s dead. Before she knows it, Theodosia is hip-deep in suspects as she looks into his death. If she’s not careful, though, she could be the murderer’s next target.
