There's nothing better for me than books and a cup of tea and there's certainly nothing better than a cup of tea and the latest Tea Shop Mystery. Theodosia Browning owns Indigo Tea Shop, there's nothing she loves better along with Drayton who is the tea master, an expert on all things, tea and he is also a antique collector and Haley who is the chef of the tea shop in Charleston, South Carolina.
Heart's Desire is a fine jewelry shop that Theodosia's friend, Brooke owns and she invites Theodosia to a trunk show that's shes putting on to display some of her most priceless jewelry. With private collectors, and others among them an SUV comes speeding through the wall and all hell breaks out when a masked group starts quickly pocketing all the precious jewels.
As glass is flying and guests fearing for their lives with the robbers letting a smoke bomb off, Theodosia's first thought is to help the other guests that are hurt and injured. Brooke is crying out in heartbreak when Theodosia approaches her niece, Kaitlin who is a jewelry designer in the making with glass embedded in her throat and clearly dead from her injury.
With the Hertiage Society's Rare Antiquites show approaching and one of the items being displayed there being a valuable Farerge Egg, Theodosia fears this group of thives may return again. Brooke then asks Theodosia to find who is responsible and avenge her niece's death and she of coarse could never say no.
Keep some tissues beside you, Devonshire Scream will have you shedding tears with a not so typical murder but a all to typical bad guys. Fast-pased and thrilling and hard to put down. A perfect sip of tea for even the most picky of tea drinkers and cozy mystery fans. I'm dying to try the recipes that are included in the back that were some of the recipes chef ,Haley made for the Indigo tea Shop customers.
The best of what I read from Tea Shop Mysteries so far. Even a coffee lover could love.
