A Scone to Die For
- Oxford Tearoom Cozy Mysteries, Book 1
- By: H.Y. Hanna
- Narrated by: Pearl Hewitt
- Length: 6 hrs and 59 mins
When an American tourist is murdered with a scone in Gemma Rose's quaint English tearoom, she suddenly finds herself apron-deep in a mystery involving long-buried secrets from Oxford's past. Armed with her insider knowledge of the university and with the help of four nosy old ladies from her local Cotswolds village (not to mention a cheeky little tabby cat named Muesli), Gemma sets out to solve the mystery - all while dealing with her matchmaking mother and the return of her old college love, Devlin O'Connor, now a dashing CID detective.
Ignore the cover and buy this cozy mystery

Decent but not my favorite cozy mystery
Would you try another book from H.Y. Hanna and/or Pearl Hewitt?
I would try another but I am not itching to listen to the next book in the series
Would you recommend A Scone to Die For to your friends? Why or why not?
The overall mystery was decent for a cozy mystery but the love component was a bit eh for me. I did really like the setting and little Oxford tidbits. I would probably recommend this but not quite as much as I would recommend an Aurora Teagarden mystery.
Was A Scone to Die For worth the listening time?
Yeah, I listened to the entire book and that means I considered it worth the time
Any additional comments?
The narrator’s voice was very soothing, so it might put you to sleep if you are overly tired. On the plus side, I like to listen to something when going to sleep and it helped me get to sleep after I had listened to it the first time :) Double duty
