Love the Indigo Tea Shop mystery series. The last few books have been a great disappointment. This book appears to start the walk back to excellence. Theo still appears to be unable to build or maintain a healthy emotional relationship with any one other than her Aunt Libby, Drayton - her master tea blender, and Haley - her chef. It is a mystery. Why has Theo become such an unpleasant character. It doesn't. fit the plot and has made her a rather unpleasant heroine. Now, in "Agony of the Leaves ", Ms. Childs is killing off former boyfriends. The boyfriends, with perhaps one exception, have appeared to be a bit milk -soppish. Character development issues? All said, it is a nice mystery. There is the ever - present information about teas and their histories as well as tea suggestions at the end. The recipes are also present...not the recipes for either the Red pepper Quiche or the Gazpacho.
