The English Breakfast Murder by Laura Childs - Review

Published: August 5, 2003
Number of pages: 288
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Series: Tea Shop Mystery #4

It is a truly exhilarating experience for Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning-helping Charleston's Sea Turtle Protection League shepherd hundreds of tiny green loggerheads safely into the sea. But just as she's about to celebrate all her hard work, she spots a dead body bobbing in the waves. Now it's up to Theo to get to the bottom of the murder before the culprit's greed stirs him to kill again.

What did I think of this book:
By now you all know I love Laura Childs and do not think I have ever read a bad book by her. This was no exception. I liked how this mystery was themed around a little treasure hunting and Civil War relics. It was sad that Harper Fisk was found drowned. I can not imagine how Theodosia felt when she found him. The more I read about Haley and Delanie the more I do not like them one bit. I think Haley is rude and acts childish. Delanie is a snob and wants everything her way and now. I also did not like her sister Nadine either I think she is worse than Delanie. Now I love Drayton and am always glad that he is in the stories and shares his knowledge of tea. Theodosia is also a favorite of mine she is such a nice helpful person. I liked that we got to see a bit more of Jory this time around. It seemed to take Theodosia a little longer to come up with clues to solve the murder this time around. I liked that Drayton was helping her the whole way. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
