A Tea Shop Mystery #18
March 7, 2017

In the latest Tea Shop Mystery from New York Times bestselling author Laura Childs, Theodosia Browning attends a โ€œRat Tea,โ€ where the mice will play…at murder.

When Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning is invited by Doreen Briggs, one of Charlestonโ€™s most prominent hostesses, to a โ€œRat Tea,โ€ 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 Doreenโ€™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…

  1. The idea of a rat tea intrigues me. Plus the cover is so full of spring flowers and I’m ready for spring.

  2. I LOVE TEA! This passion is what led me to Laura Childs’ Tea Shop Mystery books. After reading the first book “Death by Darjeeling,” and at least seven more, I was hooked on Theo’s adventures. I also enjoyed the references to, tips on, and recipes to accompany tea. I went beyond the books and bought a new tea pot, tea infusers, and loose-leaf tea blends. I also got my mother and sister hooked on this series, too.

  3. I am most interested in reading this book because it is part of a series that I love and follow. Plus I love cozy mysteries and tea. And it just sounds really good too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I want to read this book because I love this series. I really can’t even imagine a “Rat Tea” is, but I’m sure it will be interesting to find out. I also like that it’s set in Charleston SC.
