Theodosia and Drayton are in an adjoining county for a wine tasting when the body of the winery owner's son is found inside a barrel of wine. The sheriff of that county does not seem that interested in the investigation or that capable so Drayton's friends ask Theodosia to poke around. This mystery was just "okay." Although Tidwell does make an appearance, it is more like a cameo, and I really missed the interaction with him on this one. Most of the investigation is conducted in Charleston although a small part of the action takes place at Knighthall Plantation or between it and Charleston. Not the best in this series, but still okay. I hope the next installment returns Theodosia to Charleston so she is getting in the way of Detective Tidwell. ( )

Blanking out on the story but it was a very good book. ( )

Steeped In Evil is the fifteenth book in the A Tea Shop Mystery series.

I so enjoy stopping in to visit with Theodosia, Drayton and Haly at the Indigo Tea Shop and this was another enjoyable visit.

Drayton has asked Theo to join him at a wine tasting party at new boutique style winery, the Knighthall Winery. As everyone is gathered for the unveiling, the body of Drew Knight, the son of Jordan Knight owner of the winery, is found inside the barrel. Having heard of Theodosia's knack for solving murders, he asks Drayton if Theodosia would find out who had killed his son.

In the beginning of her investigation she zeros in on Pandora, Drew's stepmother, but she also finds out that Pandora has had dealings with Alex Burgoyne who maybe something short of an honest liquor distributor. In addition there is a Japanese importer who would like to take the wine being produced and import it to Japan. Also in the picture is Carl Van Deusen, a waiter who was working at the wine tasting. Van Deusen had been driving Drew's car and had been know to provide drugs in the past to Drew. Theo and Drayton now need to sort thru their findings who reasons and opportunity to want Drew dead.

Delaine Dish is back with her wonderful sense of humor and of Haly, chef and baker, is back to provide wonder meals at the Indigo Tea Shop.

Tea related links and recipes are included in the book.

Looking forward, as always, to the next book. ( )

I have missed Laura Childs, and felt that her writing had become trite. The latest book in the Tea Shop Mysteries gave me many pleasurable moments as I am planning a trip to Charleston this year. I loved the talk of parties, neighborhoods, and South Carolinian life. I adore the mention of Haley's menus for the teas and afternoon meals and wish I could attend one of the events. I always feel that Theodosia has more of a relationship with Drayton, her partner, than her current boyfriend, Max. Drayton and Theo are always running off to solve a mystery. Reading this novel was an excellent remedy for the flu. ( )

I have never read any of Laura Childs novels, but when I saw this one available at the First To Read program, I jumped at the chance to read it. This is a cozy mystery set in Charleston, SC, featuring Theodosia Browning as the ‘solver of mysteries’. The book opens with a murder in the very first chapter, at a wine tasting! There is a cast of characters that will keep you guessing until the end. Every time I met a new character, my thought was ‘he did it!’. Then ‘no, he seems like a really nice guy. it couldn’t have been him!’.

I hadn’t realized this was one of a series of books, so I didn’t realize that some of these characters were recurring. I would never have suspected them had I known! (Sorry, Drayton!) Being part of a series, there were references to what I assume were past stories. The book mentioned that Theodosia’s best friend’s fiance was murdered on her wedding day, and later mentions that her friend Amy’s husband was murdered a few years ago. Makes me think being a friend of Theodosia is dangerous!

One thing I really enjoyed about this book was the detailed descriptions of the architecture, decorating and food. Theodosia owns a tea shop and employs an excellent baker. I could smell the teas and taste the tea sandwiches and baked goods! And even though she does not readily share her recipes, you will find many at the end of the book! Time to start baking!

This book kept me guessing the entire time and was a quick, fun read. If you enjoy whodunit type mysteries, you will enjoy this book!

I received and electronic copy of this book through the Penguin First To Read program in return for an honest review. ( )
