Rose is leaving Auntie Rose's Victorian Tea House behind where she is the proprietor in Gracious Grove to her granddaughter, Sophie to take care of to head off to the International Teapot Collectors Society Convention. Rose wants Zunia Pettigrew the now president of The Teapot Collectors Society to appraise her what Rose thinks is a antique teapot but soon discovers that it indeed is from China and is a holy water vessel.

Zunia is a force to be reckoned with with everyone among the Teapot Collectors Society especially the men. She is also a mean, vendictive person and she has no problems showing her grumpiness when Rose approaches her to appraise her so called antique Tea Pot but Rose shows no fear and gives her what for when Zunia tells Rose it's a fake in front of The Teapot Collectors Society.

All eyes look upon Rose as a suspect when Zunia is found dead along side Rose's beloved teapot. But Rose being a elderly woman in her 80's couldn't possibly had the power and strength to kill Zunia and no one that knows her could possibly believe she would killer her. Zunia has secret affairs of her own and the suspects start piling up when Rose's Granddaughter, Sophie heads in to help her Grandmother and find Zunia's killer.

This second book in the Teapot Collectors Mysteries is brewed to perfection and steeped with enchanting characters and is a delicious mystery. Rose venturing out of her Victorian Tea House was  refreshing, interesting change. I always had a cup of tea beside me while reading, being the tea lover that I am I just could not resist having it there while reading. I felt Sophie's love for her grandmother and imagined I would be that way with mine if I hadn't lost her when I was young, it was a very compelling aspect of the story for me and will keep me reading this series  and always the TEA !!!
