ALL LAURA CHILDS TEA MURDER MYSTERY BOOKS READ

Scones & Bones

 I recently finished reading all 13 of Laura Child's Tea Murder Mysteries.  I really enjoyed reading "Scones and Bones" because of my own background - being born in the Old Dixie Hospital in Hampton, Virginia.  It was easy to pick up on the FICTION aspect of this mystery as Laura Child's took a spin on history and placed some of the story on the beaches of South Carolina - including the mounting of Blackbeard's head on the beach there.  I knew the correct history myself that this really took place in HAMPTON. 


Your family might enjoy the 13th Annual Blackbeard Festival which will take place in Hampton on June 1-3.  Here is the website:
http://www.blackbeardfestival.com


You will enjoy getting to know Theodosia Browning, Drayton and Haley who run the Indigo Tea Shop in Charleston, South Carolina. Just remember - this is fiction - and don't spend the whole day looking for the Tea Shop there.  Yes, two ladies have told me they did just that!

Hi Bernideen,
I am right now half way through The Teaberry Strangler and I have Sonces and Bones to read afterwards. I went to our local Indigo store and they only had these two available so I will have to try and get the others later. What fun to read a book which centers around a Tea Room! Really enjoying it! Have a lovely day.

Blessings,
Sandi

I discovered Laura and her tea time books the third book in and I read all three, one, two, three! And eagerly awaited the new one each year. And I bought ALL of them one at time -- I adore them!

Hello Bernideen
I've read a few of the books but now that I have an ereader, have been buying them this way. Unfortunately, not all the older books are available but I am currently reading Agony of the Leaves.
It's a fun series to read with lots of neat recipes.
And, of course you were recognized in one of the books!

Hi Bernideen! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I thought it was sad what you said about your childhood home. I googled mine the other day and was happy to see it was still loved and cared for...maybe you could try that too '-).
OK, so, I've never heard about this tea mystery series, but it involves pirates? Sounds like fun.
I hope you have a great rest of the day and weekend.
xoxo Cori

What a nice post! I am going to look for this book on the internet because I am afraid I can't find it here in Italy.
I wanted to thank you also for your lovely comment on my blog, you're always welcome!

best greetings,
