I've really become a fan of this well written series. The mysteries are never too easy to figure out. Wynter Castle and the surrounding town of Autumn Vale are really beginning to grow on Merry Wynter. Thinking of ways to earn money while continuing to work on renovations to ready Wynter Castle for sale, Merry takes in a band of older ladies from NYC, friends of Pish's aunt. They all been friends for over fifty years and the secrets they keep are long standing. The ladies become increasingly difficult and live up to the nickname she bestows on them, the Legion of Horrible Ladies. It's no surprise that the most unpleasant of the group, Cleta, dies of what is first thought of as a heart attack. Merry, with her growing friendship with Sheriff Virgil Grace, tries to not meddle too much. ( )

Death Of An English Muffin is the third book in The Merry Muffin series.

Merry Wynter has been trying to come up with something to get some cash flow going to spruce up the old castle she has inherited from her Uncle, so that she can put it on the market to sell. Finally, her good friend Pish, has come up with the idea of renting out some rooms. Pish's aunt Lush and three of her friends have moved in to the castle. Things are not as Merry had hoped and she refers to the elderly ladies as the Legion of Horrible Ladies. The most outspoken of the group is Cleta Sanson, everyone, even the other guests can't stand her. She has even alienated some of the residents of Autumn Vale and residents at Golden Acres, a retirement community. So it surprises no one when Cleta's body is found in a bathroom.

Now Merry, with the help of Pish and her good friend Shilo set to do a little investigating of their own to catch the murderer before the castle becomes known as a “death trap”.

The supporting cast will provide the readers with a few chuckles, too. Emerald and Juniper may not be the most competent employees, but they do provide some funny time. And Lizzie and Alcina, a couple of local teenagers, are back and are once again are an enjoyable duo.

A wonderful series and I will be watching for the next book in the series.

Recipes are also included. ( )

Books one and two in this series were completely delightful. Getting to know Merry and be with her as she adjusts to life at Wynter Castle. But muffin . . . I mean, nothing prepared me for The Legion Of Horrible Ladies in DEATH OF AN ENGLISH MUFFIN. Fantastic! Merry had no idea what she was getting herself into when she rented rooms to that group of ladies.

Author Victoria Hamilton has really raised the bar with this installment of her Merry Muffin series. Extremely well written, as are all of Ms. Hamilton’s books, each and every chapter was a fun adventure I didn’t want to end. The mystery was tight and intriguing, leading up to a shocking, clever reveal that was inspired.

This was definitely one of those books that when finished, I hoped the next book in my to be read stack could measure up.

For return readers, prepare yourself for the best installment yet. If you haven’t read this series yet, be assured, you can read DEATH OF AN ENGLISH MUFFIN and not feel lost. Author Hamilton did a great job in the beginning of getting readers caught up.

Be sure to check out the back of the book so you don’t miss out on some delicious recipes! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425258858, Mass Market Paperback)

From the national bestselling author of Muffin but Murder, baker Merry Wynter returns with a fresh tray of muffins and a case that has authorities stumped…

They say one’s home is one’s castle, but when it comes to Wynter Castle, Merry would like it to belong to someone else. But until a buyer bites, she could use some extra dough, so she decides to take in renters. The idea pans out, and Merry’s able to find a handful of tenants eager to live in a real castle. The only problem is most of them are crumby, tea-swilling old biddies.

The Legion of Horrible Ladies, as Merry calls them, is led by the terribly nasty—and fabulously wealthy—Cleta Sanson. The abrasive Englishwoman keeps everyone whipped into a frenzy—until she meets an embarrassing end behind a locked door. Evidence reveals that Cleta was murdered, yet no one is privy to how the deed was done. Merry knows she must quickly find the killer before another of her guests gets greased…

INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES!
