Tea Shop Mystery Series

  Agony Of The Leaves by Laura Childs is the latest installment of her Tea Shop Series.  Set in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina there is local ambience as well as tea lore and history.  The story opens with Theodosia and her staff catering the grand opening of the Neptune Aquarium in Charleston.  While taking a break from the opening and enjoying the view of the recreated ocean bottom Theodosia is horrified to see a human face bobbing inside the tank.  To make it worse the  body is that of her ex-boyfriend Parker Scully.  At first it seems to be a tragic accident but further investigation shows that it was murder.  Although the local police are looking into the crime,  Theodosia continues to investigate on her own finding out things she never knew about her former boyfriend.
