I also finished another book this week...

Blood Orange Brewing by Laura Childs

From Goodreads.com:

Social darling Delaine Dish is throwing a lavish Candlelight Concert to raise funds to restore a run-down Victorian home-and Theodosia Browning is more than happy to help out with tea and tasty treats from the Indigo Tea Shop.

Unfortunately, the unveiling of Theo's opulent spread proves to be far from grand after retired CEO and beloved politico Duke Wilkes falls to the floor with a jagged piece of metal protruding from his neck. When the Widow Wilkes begs Theo to apply her sleuthing skills, she can't refuse. 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.

My take:

3 out of 5 stars. I don't hate these books but I don't love them either. I'd read this one before so I think I would have liked it more if I hadn't already read it. These books are nice because you can put them down for a long time and pick them up and catch right back up with the story line.
