(From the publisher):
Social darling Delaine Dish is throwing a lavish Candlelight Concert to raise funds for a run-down Victorian home donated to the Heritage Society - and Theodosia Browning is more than happy to help out with tea and tasty treats from the Indigo Tea Shop. The partygoers are a "who's who" of Charleston politics, industry, and high society, and Delaine plans to hit them all up for money to restore the Augustus Chait House to its former glory.
Unfortunately, the grand opening of Theo's opulent spread proves to be far from grand after retired CEO and beloved politico Duke Wilkes stumbles forward... and falls face-first onto the floor with a jagged piece of metal protruding from his neck. The police are on the case immediately, and Theo has her hands too full with business to get involved. But when the Widow Wilkes begs her to apply her sleuthing skills, she can hardly refuse. Everyone who attended the party is a potential suspect - and a discreet Theodosia may be able to get the inside dirt that the police cannot.
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...
