Theodosia Browning and Drayton attend a Rat Tea Party given by Doreen Briggs, one of Charleston hostess to commemorate a time when rats had overran the area. At the party, a fire is accidentally started at the head table and the host collapses and dies. How was the poison from the tea or another source? Doreen cohesive Theo to investigate the murder by dangling a large grant to the Heritage Foundation. Reluctantly, Theo begins to look into the matter. She needs an answer before she is no more. Recipes and tea tips are included. I recommend this book. Disclosure: I received a free copy from Berkley through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Isn’t that a gorgeous cover? I have wanted to read books in this series ever since I saw a few on display in the St. James Tearoom in Albuquerque, NM, but I had spent enough on the tea event that I skipped purchase of a book. I’ll have to say that one that celebrates rats does not have quite the appeal that most of the others probably have. My request to review this one was declined, so I’ll have to get a copy on my own. Have you read others in the series? If so, do you recommend starting with the first one?

    • Yes, I love the cover very much. One time I brought every book she wrote. I just got tired of reading her, can’t explain why. I did the same with her Crackleberry series. I like her scrapbooking series the best but didn’t often find them to buy.
