Pekoe Most Poison: A Great Book & A Giveaway!
Favorite Series Alert! Laura Childs‘s Tea Shop Mystery Series was one of the first cozies I ever read. And I fell in love with Charleston, South Carolina, the Indigo Tea Shop, Theodosia, Drayton, and the entire crew.
When this book came in the mail, I confess I sat the other book I was reading aside because I just couldn’t wait to catch up on the latest installment of this series. In Pekoe Most Poison, we follow tea shop owner Theodosia Browning as she is a guest at a “rat tea” that goes horribly wrong. A fire breaks out and in the midst of the chaos and the event hostesses’s husband is found dead. Can Theodosia and Drayton solve the case and bring the killer to justice?
It is probably no surprise I enjoyed this one. Here are my top reasons to read this book.
Laura Childs has me ready to book a plane ticket to scenic Charleston, South Carolina with every book. Her imagery of the city’s culture, as well as the architecture, right down to the cobblestone streets make it an idealistic setting. And then you step inside the doors of the Indigo Tea Shop. From descriptions of their upcoming speciality tea events to what Haley is cooking on the daily menu. This is one of my top five cozy mystery locations that I’d love to visit in real life someday!
Theodosia is a great protagonist and her passion for life and her strong work ethic always shine through the story’s pages. I also adore her and Drayton’s friendship. They are an “odd couple” of sorts, but they have a strong friendship and their bond always is evident in how they work together in the tea shop, as well as how they solve cases together.
It is customary for many cozy mystery books to provide recipes inspired by book at the end of the story. Laura Childs takes it one step further. Not only does the book contain mouth watering recipes, but also tea time tips and resources. It is a wealth of information and ideas for you to try at home.
This series is not one to miss!
From the vivid imagery, to the exciting characters, to the page turning excitement, this book is not one you want to miss. And as a special bonus, the covers are beautiful! This book is actually sitting on my coffee table as part of my fall decorations because I enjoyed the look of it so much.
