The Mousse Wonderful Time of the Year by H.Y. Hanna
Oxford Tearoom mysteries #10

Every book in this series gets better and better! This time Gemma and her boyfriend, Devlin, spend most of the book apart but he is still an integral part in her life. As she is alone she takes on a catering job and gets snowed in only to be faced with another murder to investigate and a murderer to find. I have to say that this time I was left guessing till the end. I had an inkling who it might be but wasn’t sure till the person was finally brought to light.

What I liked:
* The plotting and the way the story was written
* The humor in the Christmas dinner at the home of Gemma’s parents – an iguana?
* The Old Biddies – they add that little bit of je ne sais quois
* Muesli – what a charming cat and also a life saver
* Not being upset by the loss of the murder victim...what a creep he was!
* The hint that Seth and Cassie might be moving forward into a relationship
* The growth Gemma has made as a sleuth

What I did not like:
* The murder victim – Ned – what a waster!
* The father of the murdered man – a lot like his son
* The officiousness of the policeman assigned the murder case

Did I like this book? Yes
Would I read more in this series? Definitely

Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review.
