In the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs, Theodosia Browning attends a Rat Tea, where the mice will play...at murder. When Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning is invited by Doreen Briggs, one of Charleston s most prominent hostesses, to a Rat Tea, she is understandably intrigued. As servers dressed in rodent costumes and wearing white gloves offer elegant finger sandwiches and fine teas, Theo learns these parties date back to early twentieth-century Charleston, where the cream of society would sponsor so-called rat teas to promote city rodent control and better public health. But this party goes from odd to chaotic when a fire starts at one of the tables and Doreen s entrepreneur husband suddenly goes into convulsions and drops dead. Has his favorite orange pekoe tea been poisoned? Theo smells a rat. The distraught Doreen soon engages Theo to pursue a discreet inquiry into who might have murdered her husband. As Theo and her tea sommelier review the guest list for suspects, they soon find themselves drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse... INCLUDES RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS"

A fun cozy that pulled me out of my reading slump. I love the tea shop aspect of this series. The mystery is okay; you know it‘s not going to be one of the obvious suspects, and I had a pretty good idea who the culprit was early. Still, it was a quick, enjoyable read 3.5⭐️

CaitZ I love this series. The setting is wonderful and the characters feel like old friends. 3w

I‘ve been in a reading slump for most of the past week, but this seems to be bringing me out of it. Settling back to read and drink tea, albeit iced.

A perfect spring read. A murder at a Rat Tea Party featuring a large cast of suspects who each had a reason to get rid of the victim. Another lovely cozy mystery to add to this long running series.
