Waiting on Wednesday: The Teaberry Strangler by Laura Childs

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



Eagerly awaiting Laura's latest cozy in the teashop series. This will be number 11. Set to hit the shelves in March. * Sigh*, I guess I'll have to wait. I don't want to but . . . . .

From Amazon.com:

The bestselling author of Oolong Dead serves up an Old-World treat, spiced with a Sherlock Holmes-style murder mystery. It was the Dickensian evening Theodosia Browning had been hoping for. Charleston shop-owners dressed in cloaks of yore threw open their back doors to visitors, who took advantage of bargains and Theodosia's delicious teas. But later, the alleys clear except for one body- which a horrified Theodosia discovers. It's Daria, the map store's owner. Locals have shown interest in buying her shop-but enough to kill? Plus there's been a customer hell-bent on acquiring a not-for­sale map. Most alarming of all theories, however, is Detective Tidwell's: the killer mistook Daria for Theodosia. And if that theory holds, the killer's work isn't done.

  3. I haven't heard of the teashop series! I just checked at my library and put a hold on Death by Darjeeling - I'm not sure if that's the first one, but I liked the title very much (I love tea!).
