The new mystery in the bestselling series that’s growing by leaps and bounds-and serves up “just the right blend of cozy fun and clever plotting.”*
Cozy fun and clever plotting are the highlights of this new mystery in the bestselling series from the author of Chamomile Mourning.
Social darling Delaine Dish is throwing a lavish Candlelight Concert to raise funds to restore a run-down Victorian home-and Theodosia Browning is more than happy to help out with tea and tasty treats from the Indigo Tea Shop.
Unfortunately, the unveiling of Theo’s opulent spread proves to be far from grand after retired CEO and beloved politico Duke Wilkes falls to the floor with a jagged piece of metal protruding from his neck. When the Widow Wilkes begs Theo to apply her sleuthing skills, she can’t refuse. But her investigation opens up a simmering pot of shady politics and personal payback, and Theo soon finds herself in a situation stickier than any jam she’s ever served.
