This was the first book by H.Y. Hanna that I have listened to. I thought that Pearl Hewitt did an exceptionally good job with her performance of the various characters. I would classify this listen as a cozy mystery to me instead of nail bitter. I enjoyed the story. I especially loved the kitty antics and the way they were performed. Pearl Hewitt is very talented. This book is part of a series and I found it to be a good standalone. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it.

I really enjoy this series. The story is fresh and entertaining. There is lots of suspense and drama. The romance does not over shadow the mystery. These books are like candy for the brain.

If you are attracted to the cover than you should get this book. As its just like the cover picture, fun, cosy,light hearted murder mystery with a loveable cat.
This is the 3rd Gemma Rose, Oxford tea room mystery and its just like meeting up with old friends, as many of the loveable characters from the previous books have a part in helping Gemma clear her friend Seth's name when he is accused of killing an Oxford Professor.
You don't need to have listened or read the previous books as each book has an ending but in my opinion it helps make them more enjoyable. The old ladies (a group of 4 customers from the tea room) play a bigger part in this story as Gemma' s mum is away on holiday, (adding all sort of problems in its self as, she is the cook in Gemma' s tea room.) but she still manages to have you laughing out loud.
The narrator is very good and its an easy listen.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend, in fact I would recommend the whole series. The stories are full of humour, intrigue, romance and murder, with the delightful background of a traditional english tea room.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Down, Bun to Go?
I found poor Cassie's attempt at baking very funny, from the mixer "blowing up" in the kitchen to her failed baking attempts.
Which character – as performed by Pearl Hewitt – was your favourite?
Pearl Hewitt's repertoire of character voices is more diverse in this book, I actually liked her voicing of the homeless person Owen.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I would have liked to listen to this book in one go, but limiting myself to a an hour or two a day makes it something to look forward to.
Any additional comments?
I have really enjoyed listening to this book (this is the second time I have listened to it and I have also read the ebook). The descriptions of Oxford brings back memories of when I was a student. The "old biddies" are as meddlesome as usual and Museli is up to mischief again.
