Murder in the tea leaves / by Laura Childs.

Childs, Laura, (author.).


"Theodosia and Drayton were expecting a mellow break from the bustle at the Indigo Tea Shop while catering a film, until the director ropes Theodosia into a role as a fortune teller. At the haunted Brittleback Manor, Theodosia's character will read tea leaves and give a bitter prediction. But when it's time for her close-up, the lights flash and the movie director spasms on the floor until he is dead. Amid the conflicts on set and the spooky legend of Brittleback Manor, where the film is set, Theodosia must investigate all the suspects -- living or dead -- to find the culprit." -- Provided by publisher.
