(From the publisher):
The streets of Charleston, South Carolina, are alive with music, dancing, and the arts as the Spoleto festival gets underway. But Indigo Tea Shop owner Theodosia Browning feels far from festive when the inaugural Poet's Tea is caught in a surprise downpour and forced into one of the Heritage Society's austere halls - where high society proceeds to mingle with high art. And when it rains, it pours... as proven when a respected auction house owner plummets from the balcony, landing dead on Theodosia's specially prepared cake. Worse yet, it looks like someone helped him over the edge.
With a full kettle of suspects, but no witnesses, Theodosia brews up an investigation of her own. Her knack for catching the scent of deceit leads her into the murky swamps of the South Carolina Low Country, where the last thing she expects to uncover is a thriving criminal enterprise of art forgery, fraud - and murder...
