Series: A Tea Shop Mystery (Book 17)
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Berkley (March 1, 2016)
Language: English


The New York Times bestselling author of Ming Tea Murder serves up heists, homicides, and herbal blends in the latest in the Tea Shop mysteries.

Catering a high-class trunk show at Heart's Desire Jewelry is a shining achievement for Theodosia and the Indigo Tea Shop. After all, a slew of jewelers, museum curators, and private collectors will be there to showcase their wares and sip some of Theo's best blends. But just as Theo settles in to enjoy the fruits of her labor, the party is crashed by a gang of masked muggers who steal the precious gems and jewels on display. The thieves disappear almost as quickly as they arrived, leaving shattered glass, scattered gemstones, and a dead body in their wake.

Although the last thing Theo wants is to get involved, she can't help but intercede when her dear friend Brooke, aunt of the victim and owner of Heart's Desire, begs for help in figuring out who committed the brutal burglary. Though the FBI believes this daring "smash and grab" is the work of an international gang of jewel thieves, Theo is convinced that the felon is someone much closer to home...

INCLUDES RECIPES AND TEA TIME TIPS!

  1. I love this series as it was the catalyst to renew my passion with tea. My favorite tea is connected to meals, weather, or the time of day. With my breakfast scone, I enjoy an Assam/Ceylon black tea blend. With the weather warming up, I enjoy an iced vanilla tea. With the afternoon quiet time reading my latest book, I enjoy an "Earl Gray hot."

  4. I adore this series, Theodosia and the gang! I just treated myself to a new Twinings blend in honor of the Queen's 90th. A mix of black teas, it's pretty smooth. Generally, I'm an English Breakfast gal! I like Jasmine Green Tea if I'm trying for a little less caffeine! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  21. I like a tea that I used to get at Gloria Jean's, it was a tea with a bit of citrus flavor. But I really don't drink tea too often anymore. It I do, it is an herbal tea.

    The book sounds good! Thanks for the chance to win.

  24. It's hard to choose just one as they have different places in my world. My standard is Darjeeling. It's always there when I need a boost and it is consistently tasty and enjoyable. Eight at the Fort is perfect for straightening my shoulders, throwing back my head, and facing the world. Prince of Wales is just yummy. Chamomile is a nighttime staple and mint teas soften many summer afternoons. Peach is perfect in the dead of winter on those dreary the-snow-is-never-going-to-leave days, and autumn wouldn't be autumn without a cinnamon apple tea for the first brisk afternoons. I could probably go on for a bit more, but I'll stop there since I've failed to follow directions yet again.
