The most rich, and established elite of Charleston society is to be attending the event. The guests are serenaded by a Chinese violin, a Chinese dragon dancing and flowing in time with the wind. Treated to the tastiest horderves. To add a sense of whimsy to the event Max has arranged for a photo booth so the guests may capture the moment with a photo. Theodosia would rather be anywhere but a black tie event but she goes in support of her boyfriend and the Chinese tea house only to uncover a grissly disovery of museum donor, Edgar Webster dead, slumped over inside the photo booth. The cause of death a sharp instrument jabbed in his ear.
Theodosia becomes determined when Max become a suspect to clear his name. Starting a investigation of her own as to who could have killed Edgar as it becomes known that good time Edgar has had an affair on his wife and has many secrets of his own and soon suspects start pilling up.His wife may want him dead for betraying her, his mistress may want him dead for wanting payment after they broke up for a business deal. The posibilities seem endless but Theodosia makes it her duty to bring this killer to justice before the love of Theodosia's life becomes as steeped as her tea.
Theodosia has spunk is feisty and is bound and determined they are the characteristics that describe her. I see her as a fighter, a strong willed woman and ameteur sleuth and she is not afraid to show it. I knew I liked her from the first page I loved these characters that's why I want to go back and read to get to know them more. The atmosphere of the tea room with these characters are a match made in heaven. They all seemed to click together and I felt like I knew them forever and it kept me wanting to read. This was well written and very entertaining and action packed mystery. Be sure not to miss Ming Tea Murder and don't forget to enjoy some tea while reading.
