High tea and high fashion turn deadly in this latest installment of the New York Times bestselling series.
Tea shop entrepreneur Theodosia Browning has been tapped to host a fancy Limón Tea in a genuine lemon orchard as a rousing kickoff to Charleston Fashion Week. But as fairy lights twinkle and the scent of lemon wafts among the tea tables, the deadly murder of a fashion designer puts the squeeze on things.
As the lemon curd begins to sour, the murdered woman’s daughter begs Theodosia to help find the killer. Tea events and fashion shows must go on, however, which puts Theodosia and her tea sommelier, Drayton Conneley, right in the thick of squabbling business partners, crazed clothing designers, irate film producers, drug deals, and a disastrous Tea Trolley Tour.
INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

The Tea Shop Mysteries – set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.
The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!
The Cackleberry Club Mysteries – set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.The Book Diva’s Reads – AUTHOR GUEST POST March 6 – Diane Reviews Books – REVIEW March 7 – The Avid Reader – REVIEW March 7 – FUONLYKNEW – SPOTLIGHT March 8 – The Mystery of Writing – SPOTLIGHT March 8 – Christy’s Cozy Corners – REVIEW March 9 – Literary Gold – AUTHOR INTERVIEW March 9 – The Mystery Section – SPOTLIGHT March 10 – MJB Reviewers – SPOTLIGHT March 10 – Nadaness In Motion – SPOTLIGHT (REVIEW) March 11 – Celticlady’s Reviews – SPOTLIGHT March 11 – Lisa Ks Book Reviews – AUTHOR INTERVIEW March 12 – Cozy Up With Kathy – REVIEW March 12 – Ruff Drafts – SPOTLIGHT March 13 – I’m Into Books – SPOTLIGHT March 13 – Books a Plenty Book Reviews – REVIEW March 14 – The Book’s the Thing – REVIEW March 14 – Sapphyria’s Book Reviews – SPOTLIGHT March 15 – Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book – REVIEW March 15 – StoreyBook Reviews – SPOTLIGHT March 16 – Socrates Book Reviews – SPOTLIGHT March 16 – Baroness Book Trove – REVIEW March 17 – Reading, Writing & Stitch-Metic – SPOTLIGHT March 17 – Ascroft, eh? – AUTHOR GUEST POST March 17 – View from the Birdhouse – REVIEW March 18 – #BRVL Book Review Virginia Lee – SPOTLIGHT March 19 – Maureen’s Musings – SPOTLIGHT a Rafflecopter giveaway https://widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js
