Meh. Characters are like cardboard cutouts...lacking depth. I don't usually have an interest in "foodie" mysteries, but thought I'd try something different from my usual mystery fare (Nevada Barr, Sue Grafton, JA Jance). This book did not hold my interest.

Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston, South Carolina's the Indigo Tea Shop and amateur sleuth, has been asked to cater tea, scones and finger sandwiches for the grand opening of the Neptune Aquarium. Leaving the serving responsibilities in the capable hands of her staff, Drayton Conneley and Haley Parker, Theo takes a break and is enjoying the Ocean Wall exhibit, until she sees the body of her former boyfriend, Parker Scully, floating in the water. Against the advice of Drayton and Haley as well as the admonishment of Detective Burt Tidwell, Theo is once again drawn into the murder investigation.

Recipes and ideas for hosting tea parties are included at the back of the book.

This story seemed longer than most. Once again the ending is Unrealistic! It seems as if Ms. Childs just can't seem to create a reasonable ending for her stories. This one was really unbelievable!

Least annoying of the tea shop style mysteries. A bit much of it is up to the reader to figure out.
