    I love the characters.

    • Overall, I had a good time, 3.5/5 I'd say. Not a *great* time (thought the last 5-10 ch made up a lot), but the things that bugged me feel like stuff that'll get better with the next books. Especially since by then the setting/main characters will be set. • I love the tea descriptions and random bouts of info/historical knowledge. :D • I also like that the romance side is more like Theo going "he's nice and good looking, interesting fellow" and then moving on without trying to catch their attention because she's got stuff to do and romance isn't her focus. And that she doesn't let that creep manipulate her and just stare him down. Okay, one thing that I love is that the creepy, stalker like behavior of one of the guys is NOT romanticized, this is great! • The characters: mostly all interesting. I like the protagonist, she's fun, assertive, and modern, definitely not a fainting, lost maiden. I really like Dayton too. He's so focused on his craft and passionate, it's nice. Same with Theodosia, by the way. The random/other characters are mostly interesting too, so it holds up. • The story: well, you can feel that it's one of the early books. And that it's Theodosia's first "investigation". Everything is a bit jumbled, but it does make sense in context, for a complete neophyte. So don't expect Miss Marple levels of competency right now. I expect that it'll get better as the books/series go on. It makes for a story-line maybe a bit disorganized, but it fits the character. • The writing bugs me a bit. I've seen reviews mentioning wrong words/expressions being used not quite in the right way, but English isn't my 1st language, so I couldn't say for sure. However, the author does have a way of suddenly switching pov which bugs me a bit. 90% of the book is written from Theo's pov, but when she encounters a new character, you get a couple paragraphs from their pov of what they know/see about Theodosia. There's no warning for pov switch before/after and it feels unnecessary. That part could have done with more attention from the author's editor.

    Death by Darjeeling

    Theodosia is a clever young woman who turned her back on a career in marketing to open a tea shop. This is a nice cozy mystery with likeable characters and you learn a lot about tea!
