Gemma and Muesli make an awesome pair. Not my normal genre, but these two have me hooked.

Murder, mystery and mayhem what more could you ask for. This is the second novel of the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series. All of our favourite characters are back including Muesli the cat and the old biddies. I love the way H.Y. Hanna describes Oxford and the University, it is obvious she has spent time there. 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.

I really enjoyed this book! The pace was well done and the mystery was interesting with lots of twists and turns, foreshadowing and it kept me guessing. There's enough going on besides the murder mystery as well I liked seeing more of the familiar characters we got to meet in the first book already. There's also an interesting plot line involving Cassie her new boyfriend and Gemma's dislike for him. Gemma doesn't handle it the best way, it was obvious she just wanted the best for her friend. Then there is a bit of a romance subplot, it doesn't progress much, but just a bit to keep me interested in what will happen with that. All in all this was a great sequel and I can't wait till the third book will be released!

Gemma is at the opening of Cassie’s art show in a new Oxford art gallery when a young rather obnoxious woman appears, has an apparent seizure and then dies. People are questioned by the police but Gemma and the women known as the Old Biddies start their own investigation on the side wanting to find out on their own who killed Sarah. Gemma shares some information she gleans with her old Beau who is in charge of the case and Devlin shares some of his information with her. There are a number of people that had motive and opportunity but which one is the one that did it and just how was it done? That is the question and Gemma nearly loses her life in the pursuit of trying to find out. The descriptions made me feel as if I were in Oxford. Gemma’s mother was a hoot. Gemma and Cassie have a very close friendship that many would envy. The Old Biddies are charming. Muesli might deserve her own Disney movie. And, Gemma is going to have her hands full in book three if she has to decide between two men that are showing interest in her. This is a great cozy and clean story that any age would enjoy. I would like to thank the author for the copy to read in exchange for an honest review.

The Second in this cozy mystery series. It is fantastic. You won't be sorry and very well written. I can't wait to see how the series continues. Between solving murders and keeping her Mom in line, she has her hands full. Be sure to have some Earl Grey handy, it will put you in the mood. Get them all, you won't want to miss a moment.

After working at her tea room all day, Gemma takes a break to visit an art gallery opening that is honoring her best friend, Cassie. Though the showing is displaying many other artists also, Gemma is only interested in Cassie's contributions. Gemma also learns that Cassie has a new boyfriend, Jon Kelsey who is also the owner of the Gallery. When an aparently drunk young lady comes in and disrupts the nice quiet event, she is denied alcohol but offered a cup of tea. Upon drinking the tea she goes into convulsions and dies. Gemma smelled almonds on her and jumped to the conclusion that the young lady had been poisoned with cyanide, putting the bar waitress in the spotlight! During her investigation, Gemma gets closer to her old college flame, Devlin O'Connor, the CID Inspector on the case. Devlin does not always agreeing with Gemma's participation in the investigation, Gemma can't just let it go...her best friend is "involved" with the gallery owner and Gemma instinctively distrusts Jon, but cannot specifically say why. To make matters worse, you know there is a problem when animals don't like a person and Meusli takes an immediate dislike to Jon the first time she sees him. Gemma's investingation into the matter quickly reveals that Sarah was very rude and unpopular person and had a lot of enemies. The question is who did it, when was she given the poison, and why? Throughout the ups and downs of Gemma's investigation, you get to learn more of the traditions of England and Oxford college. A very enjoyable book and I look forward to the next book in the series.

This book was just as charming as the first and I enjoyed it just as much. It is an easy and fun read. The story is well written and the plot has a great pace that keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next. the author also has a terrific descriptive style and as you read the story you can picture yourself sitting in the tea room or walking around Oxford. At first, after the murder occurred, it didn't seem like there were going to be that many suspects and the mystery might be easy to solve. That turned out not to be the case. As Gemma begins to investigate (of course she has to because her best friend Cassie's boyfriend could be a suspect) there are plenty of twist, turns and red herrings thrown into the mix and when the killer was revealed I was surprised. The mystery in this book was as solid as the first and had just as climatic of a conclusion. I love the characters in this story. Gemma is terrific. She is smart, warm and caring. The "Old Biddies" make a return and once again they provide Gemma with some "assistance." I was a little miffed that Cassie allowed her boyfriend to come briefly between her friendship with Gemma, but as is typical with best friends those fights never last long and the relationship between them is strong enough to survive the fight. In this installment, I fell in love more with Gemma's mother. While it appears she has mastered remembering her iPad password, she has discovered online shopping and wait to you see what she buys. I'm not a cat person, but Muesli is growing on me as well and the interaction between her and Gemma qualifies her as a secondary character in my opinion. This is a charming series that I find to be well written with solid mysteries and great characters and I will be back to visit the tea room in March 2016 when the next installment is due out.
