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.

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.
