125. Chamomile Mourning by Laura Childs

About the book

At Charleston's Spoleto festival, tea shop owner Theodosia Browning is far from festive when the Poet's Tea is forced indoors by rain. But rain proves to be the least of her problems after a local auction house owner plummets from a balcony to his death-and it looks like someone helped him over the edge.
With a full kettle of suspects, Theodosia investigates and uncovers a criminal enterprise of art forgery, fraud—and murder—that leads her into the murky swamps of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Now, she's hot on the heels of a criminal who plans on showing her just how dangerous it is to stick her sensitive nose where it doesn't belong.

A very nice installment in the series. I love reading these even though I can't stand tea. The food sounds so good, I will have to attempt one of the recipes.

This is one of my favorite cozy series. I've visited Charleston a few times, so the locations are somewhat familiar. Chamomile Mourning is the next one in the series for me to read :-)

I would love to make it to charleston one of these days. These books seem to pull me in from page one. Maybe one of these days I will turn into a tea drinker.
