Another fun read in the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries.
The identity of the killer was a real mystery and kept me guessing until the end.
All my favourite characters make an appearance and Gemma and Devlin's relationship motors along at a nice sedate pace. I love how the writer brings Muesli, the cat, into the main story line as well. A cat show was a completely different setting for a murder.
I liked that Devlin was working on another case at the same time. He had a high profile agri crime case to solve and I felt that it could have had more of an impact on the story than merely facilitating an official reason for his presence at a village fete. There wasn't much of a resolution to the crimes he was investigating and I thought it would have been more interesting if the Gemma's murder investigation had been connected more. I would have liked Gemma to have faced some danger along the way or to have crossed paths with Devlin's criminal gang to add a little bit of excitement.
A nice, charming mystery with humour. I would recommend this series.

Enjoyed this book
An enjoyable romp but get quite annoyed at certain inaccuracies. In the UK nobody would ever offer to pay for a doctor because it's free anyway and I don't think doctors discuss their patients illness or medications.
Will probably get the next book though. Like others have said, Jemma can be a little annoying!

It's a cute little story, as all these books are. It was not my favourite, but maybe because I have listened to too many in a row. I felt there was too much descriptive narrative each time someone was a suspect. That moment where someone unravels the case and explains how the murder etc was done. But this was several times over and it felt a bit forced.
And not enough of the old biddies this time. They are my favourite. They are great.
But still enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one.

Another enjoyable audiobook featuring Muesli
If you could sum up Till Death Do Us Tart in three words, what would they be?
Light-hearted, intriguing, enjoyable.

I would have liked to listen to the book in one sitting.
Any additional comments?
I have enjoyed listening to this series of audio books. The characters are brought alive by the narrator, Pearl Hewitt, and although there are several obvious suspects, the actual murderer usually is surprising.

Cosy little murder
I enjoy the Oxford tea room murder mysteries as there is always a lot of suspects in each book. However I feel the performance let this book down which is a shame, as I think Pearl Hewitt has down an excellent job in previous book,the voice for one of the main suspect was just annoying and grated but other that it was a nice little mystery with lots of clues ot help you work out who the murder was.
I enjoyed Mussel (Gemma's cat) playing a bigger part and it is quite often her antics that make you laugh. Although my dog wasn't to happy with all the cat meowing in this book.
