Book Review: Sweet Tea Revenge


A cup of tea, a cookie, and a good book. What could be better?  I was so excited to be asked to review Laura Childs' new book, Sweet Tea Revenge.   Other tea bloggers have also had fun in reviewing this book. 

For me, it's total indulgence. I've read all the books in this series and they are perfect for a weekend getaway, right from the couch. Each story is similar in its progress, yet unique. Theodosia Browning owns a tea shop and has interesting staff and friends. She's got a reputation as an amateur sleuth and invariably finds herself solving a mystery. Throughout it all, she serves pots of tea and trays do delicious tea foods, many which have recipes in the back of the book. In this story, Theo helps solve the murder of her shop neighbor and friend Delaine's fiancé. A very good read to go with tea!

Have you read this one?

I haven't read this book, but a friend gave me another book by this author recently. I look forward to reading it --- and to your book review!

I have it, have read it, and loved it. I am always sorry when these books are over...they leave me wanting more!

Yes, I have read Laura Cild's latest installment of the Indigo Tea Shop mysteries. I love this series and have read all of them. Over Easter my husband took me to Charleston, so I could visti the locations. I found it as beautiful as Laura Childs described it and cannot wait to visit again.
Have you read any of her other series? I haven't but they do look fun and since I'm fortunate enough to work in a little book store, I may just have to dig into those as well.

It's on my list, but haven't purchased it yet. I have thoroughly enjoyed her other books. They are indeed a delightful read.

You know, I haven't read these...yet! I think it's time.

Yes, like you I have read all of these books and love them! It really turned me on to the whole "cozy mystery" genre, and of course I think these are the best!
