Shadow of a Spout

A Teapot Collector Mystery, #2

Rose Freemont loves to find and collect teapots. She is lucky enough to be attending a convention for the International Teapot Collector's Society. She has her granddaughter watching her tea house for her while she is on her trip.

Rose wants someone to tell her how much one of her teapots is worth. Zunia soon tells her that her teapot is not the real thing and Rose gets very mad. Rose finds herself a suspect when Zunia is found murdered and Rose's teapot is there, too. Sophie has to solve the crime before Rose is in a lot more trouble.

What a great story! I really enjoyed it. I give this book a 4/5 and all opinions are my own.
