Pekoe Most Poison by Laura Childs
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 “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…

The idea of a rat tea intrigues me. Plus the cover is so full of spring flowers and I’m ready for spring.
I agree, Suzan. I never heard of a rat tea prior to this book. And the cover is so perfect for Spring!
The mystery sounds intriguing and anything involving tea is captivating and unique.

Love this series! The party around the rat theme has me laughing at the thought
Me too, I would love to see photos from something like that! 🙂
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.
That’s awesome, Kathleen! I love when books give you a real world connection like that. 🙂
Love Laura’s books! Can’t wait to read this book! Her covers are beautiful!
Yes, she has great covers!

I’m glad you love the series! Cozy mysteries are just the best. 🙂

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.
That’s such a great setting!
Loved many of her other books. parkeremma2003 at yahoo dot com
