Dear Reader,

Tea maven Theodosia Browning dashes down Charleston's famed Gateway Walk as wind and driving rain overtake her. This normally picturesque ramble of hedges and statuary has become a twisted, foggy labyrinth that leads to a moss-shrouded cemetery. There, Theodosia encounters two struggling figures and realizes she's witness to a brutal murder. In the throes of alerting police, Theodosia recognizes the victim — the daughter of a dear friend. And even though this appears to be the work of a serial killer, she launches her own shadow investigation, discovers multiple suspects, and stumbles upon a second dead body.

I wrote this spooky cozy with plot, pacing, and action reminiscent of a thriller — then sprinkled in tea lore and recipes to make this Tea Shop Mystery highly entertaining.

All my best
Laura Childs
