“‘Til death us do part” comes before the wedding in Laura Childs’ latest Tea Shop Mystery. Theodosia Browning, proprietress of the Indigo Tea Shop, is lukewarm on the idea of being a bridesmaid, but she can’t refuse her dear friend, Delaine Dish. As ominous (and bad omen-ous) storm clouds hover over the less-than-opulent Ravencrest Inn, Delaine’s maid of honor is M.I.A., and the bride is still steamed after a vociferous argument with her groom, Dougan Granville. It seems like everything that could go wrong has gone wrong...until Theo discovers Dougan’s dead body, amid a scattering of white powder. Drugs? Perhaps, but drugs didn’t cause that blunt-force wound on the back of Dougan’s head. Is Delaine in hot water? Recipes; tea time tips.

I have purchaased all of the "Tea" mysteries and love them. Theo and Co. are a great team BUT Theo is wonderful but alone. Too many boyfriends for a lady like her. Please let her find someone who deserves and appreciates her. THANKS!!!!

I have discovered another new mystery writer whose other books I will be wanting to read after reading this book. Laura knows how to grab and keep your immersed into her book. Just love this cozy tea shop mystery, Kudos for Laura and kudos for me finally discovering a great new mystery writer.
Like a good sweet tea, these cozy mysteries keep one interested right to the last page. Theo is a wonderful character, as are Dayton and Haley, people one would love to meet and make friends with. Even her over the top characters such give the story extra flavor! I love learning so much about the area and about tea!
its always a joy to return to a "tea shop mystery"... starts with a murder and ends with a surprise..i just wish we had a tea shop here in town like this one...love all the old familiar characters and settings...well worth the time and money..sit back brew up a pot of tea and enjoy ,i sure did...
More surprise at the end as to who-done-it. Usually I figure it out but this one surprised me.
