"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..."--… (lisätietoja)

I love the Tea Shop mysteries and look forward to the newest one every spring. This one didn't disappoint, either!

I think this is one of my favorites of the Tea Shop series so far! I really enjoyed this one. The mystery itself was great. I didn't figure out who the killer was until very close to the end where it was revealed. Plus, this time around we had a new method and a new way of delivering that method. Sometimes having the victim shot or stabbed gets a little old, so this one was a refreshing change.

I absolutely love the characters in this series. Reading about Theodosia, Drayton, and Haley is like visiting with old friends. Their characters are so well-rounded, developed, and complex. It's a pleasure visiting them in each book and getting to know them just that little bit more. It's a pleasure to see how their relationships with each other and with others in the community grow and develop.

I love all the descriptions of Charleston. I've never been there but with as many of these books I've read, I feel like I have. I can easily visualize all the alleys and cemeteries and old mansions that are there. I feel like if I ever make it down there to visit, I'm going to feel right at home! It takes a skilled author to do that without boring the reader with the descriptions. Ms. Childs' does this excellently.

The pace of these books has always been good and this one is no exception. It was never boring and kept moving along at a good clip, but yet not too fast that you couldn't keep up.

This is a great installment in the Tea Shop Mystery series and I highly recommend it! Pick it up and enjoy! If you've never read the series, you don't have to know the back story to enjoy this one, but I highly recommend the rest of the series as well!

I've read many books in this series and am currently going back to read the ones that I've missed. I enjoy "visiting" with Theodosia, Drayton, and Haley.

I am glad the author has returned to giving us some tea facts. I had never heard of a rat tea so the history of that was interesting. I don't think I would have wanted waiters dressed as rats though. I also enjoyed the short bits at the Candlelight Tea where Drayton would explain why a certain tea paired well with the food for that course.

Honestly, though, I'd have to think that people would stop inviting Theodosia to events at some point because so many deaths seem to occur at events she attends.

I understand Drayton liking the Heritage Society, but it seemed a bit out of character to me that he'd chase a donation.

I didn't really suspect who the murderer turned out to be. ( )

Without trying or meaning too I'm finding I identify the murderer all too easily which takes away from my enjoyment of this delightful series. Also I wish there was an epilogue that let us know that Drayton was fully recovered. ( )

What a lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday, curled up with a delicious book. I crave tea and a scone, but where to find? This event features a "Rat Tea" at a lovely McMansion in Charleston, SC, but tragically, the host is murdered. Laura Childs presented the history of the "Rat Tea” but omitted much of the wonderful setting of Charleston in this novel. The food and tea still send longings to my mouth, and I am still craving one of Haley's scones. The story ends, but the reader is never enlightened if all Theodosia's work benefited the Heritage Society. ( )
