Ming Tea Murder is an exciting mystery filled with tea and southern charm. The book revolves around the Theodosia, a crime solving, tea-shop owning southerner living in Charleston. The book starts with a murder inside an eighteenth century Chinese tea house rebuilt in a Charleston museum. We follow Theo and her friends throughout Charleston as they try to uncover the killer. I thought I had the murderer figured out right away, but I was completely wrong. I love that I was kept guessing until the very end.
This is an entertaining read that I'd recommend to anyone that loves tea and mysteries. I admittedly haven't read the other books in this series, but after reading this one I will definitely check them out. Reading one of these books with a tumbler of tea on the beach would be an ideal summer afternoon.
If this book sounds like something you'll pick up, stay tuned to win your very own copy! Next week I will be doing a giveaway!
