When an American tourist is murdered with a scone in Gemma Rose’s quaint Oxfordshire tearoom, she suddenly finds herself apron-deep in a mystery involving long-buried secrets from Oxford’s past.

Armed with her insider knowledge of the University and with the help of four nosy old ladies from the village (not to mention a cheeky little tabby cat named Muesli), Gemma sets out to solve the mystery—all while dealing with her matchmaking mother and the return of her old college love, Devlin O’Connor, now a dashing CID detective.

But with the body count rising and her business going bust, can Gemma find the killer before things turn to custard?

*Traditional English scone recipe included!


bookreview
A Scone to Die For by H.Y. Hanna is the first book in the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series. This was a delightful cozy that took me on a trip across the pond. Gemma quits her corporate job to pursue her dream and open a tearoom near the Oxford campus. When an American is found murdered in the courtyard outside of the tearoom, Gemma’s curiosity is piqued and she is determined to find out what really happened.

I liked this cozy a lot. I think it was a strong start to a series. It featured a fun cast of characters ~ the old ladies at the tearoom were a hoot! The setting was wonderful and the author really painted the picture for me. Muesli the cat was a cute addition to the story and I hope she plays a more prominent role in the second book. I really liked her! I am looking forward to reading the next book.

    Thank you so much for featuring my book on your blog and for your lovely review! I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the story and setting – and the cast of characters too. It seems like Muesli the little tabby is the biggest fan favourite so far 🙂

    Good luck to everybody for the giveaway!
