But her mother is causing havoc at Gemma's quaint English tearoom and her best friend is furious at her snooping...and this mystery is turning out to have more twists than a chocolate pretzel!

Good follow on book from A Scone to Die for

I've recently finished listening to HY Hannah first audio book of A scone to die for & was keen to continue with this one and where she would take the characters.

I enjoyed hearing the new mystery about the death of a woman in an art gallery which happened in front of a crowd of people which therefore made it a more complex case to solve. H Y Hanna returns with the previous characters and unravels more of their lives whilst intertwine the solving of the mystery.
All evidence points to one person, however when someone else almost dies they have to go back to square one and reinvestigate.

Another good murder mystery tale which is thoroughly enjoyable to read and to listen to.

Brilliant

Any additional comments?

A brilliant follow up to 'A Scone to Die For.'

Gemma, once again, lands herself in hot water when she investigates a murder that takes place during her friend's art exhibition. There are plenty of suspects to choose from and her friend's new boyfriend is number one on her list. There are plenty of twists in the story and I was as surprised as Gemma was with the identity of the murderer.

In addition to the mystery, the funny side stories involving Gemma's mother working in the tearoom make for delightful and entertaining reading. Luckily, Gemma has the 'Old Biddies' on hand when things start to fall apart. They keep their noses firmly in other people's affairs and pour tea at the same time.
I love the way Muesli, the cat, is written into the story and comes to the rescue at just the right moment.

There are some developments in Gemma's love life as well but I'm hoping this aspect isn't rushed too quickly to a happy ending for her and Devlin as I am enjoying their little arguments as well as her mother's matchmaking attempts.

Oxford is described in such warmth and detail that it makes me want to hop over for a weekend, take a walk around and drop in for tea.
The narration is excellent and easy to listen to.

Cute series

Pretty much typical of the genre - suspect a cast of characters in turn, heroine falling in like/love with handsome ( in this case) former boyfriend/current detective, and a cute critter (cat) who is much smarter than average, and yet, these stories by H Y Hanna work very well and Pearl Hewitt does an excellent job of narration.
I find cosy mysteries a lot of fun if they're well done, and these are. I'm happy to while away a few hours in the company of Gemma and her mom, Cassie, the old biddies, the doctor, the detective and especially Muesli!

I love this series!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Tea with Milk and Murder to be better than the print version?

I enjoyed the audio edition more than the print edition because of the narration. Pearl Hewitt does a marvelous job bringing all of these characters to life. Yes, it's the same story, but the narration adds another dimension to the story. I can't picture anyone else doing the narration! I can't wait to listen to future books in audio version

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

There are lots of red herrings and twists that keep you guessing and keep you interested.

Which character – as performed by Pearl Hewitt – was your favorite?

It's really hard to pick just one.... I love Gemma's character and Pearl Hewitt does a great job of portraying her. But, she does a wonderful job with all the characters...the old biddies, Devlin, and even Muesli's little (and not so little) meows

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Biddies Are Back hahaha

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this series to anyone that enjoys a cozy mystery. It is a fantastic series with believable characters that will keep you laughing, keep you wondering whodunnit, and wonder what Muesli will get into next. So what are you waiting for? You won't be disappointed!
