I am confident that you are going to need more than a cup of tea to keep this twisted tale straight. Krista Davis has done her best to create as much confusion as possible and the play on names only adds to the story.

With two new shops in town, tea and antique, Sophie Winston and her friends have a nice place to hang out and gossip; little do they know that both will bring a new mystery to Old Town, Virginia - a charming place that does have its fair share of murder and secrets.

What begins with a break in at Natasha’s house ends with relationships broken all because of love. I know that sounds strange, but this tenth installment of the Domestic Diva series has the whole gang investigating the poisoning death of a man that has more than one skeleton in his closet.

I do admit that I had gotten confused with some of the characters and for some reason I had thought a couple of them were much younger than they really were. Add in the usual craziness and subterfuge and you have a better than average cozy mystery to sort out before your pot of tea turns cold.
