Publisher's Summary

A sinister phone call in the middle of the night throws tearoom owner, Gemma Rose, straight into the heart of a new murder mystery - this time with her friend, Seth, arrested as the key suspect! The mysterious killing in the cloisters of an old Oxford college points to a bitter feud within the University - but Gemma finds unexpected clues popping up in her tiny Cotswolds village.

Meanwhile, her love life is in turmoil as Gemma struggles to decide between eminent doctor, Lincoln Green, and sexy CID detective, Devlin O'Connor...whilst her quaint English tearoom is in hot water as she struggles to find a new baking chef.

With her exasperating mother and her mischievous little tabby cat, Muesli, driving her nutty as a fruitcake - and the nosy Old Biddies at her heels - Gemma must crack her toughest case yet if she is to save her friend from a life behind bars.

    "I loved it"

    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.

    "Very Entertaining"

    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.

    "Another Great Installment"
    If you could sum up Two Down, Bun to Go in three words, what would they be?

    Fun delicious mystery


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As usual, there are lots of red herrings and twists to keep you guessing!


    Which character – as performed by Pearl Hewitt – was your favorite?

    I don't have a favourite to be honest, I think Pearl Hewitt does an outstanding job bringing all of these wonderful characters to life


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As with all of the books in the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series, there are lots of great laugh out loud moments with the interactions with the characters. I don't want to give anything away at all, so you need to go and check it out yourself!


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't read or listened to any of the books within this series, you are truly missing out. Do yourself a huge favour and start the series, you will lot be disappointed! Each installment has everything a great cozy should. They just keep getting better and better!

    "Great little story"

    This one was a quick and easy read. I totally enjoyed it. the author does a good job giving life to our characters and making you feel like you should know them. It is well researched and authentic. While this was the third book in the series it's the first I've read and the first by the narrator. She does an excellent job distinguishing between characters without you struggling to keep up. I look forward to more from the author, this series and the narrator.

    I received a free audio version of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    "5+/5 Chelsea Buns Shining with a Rich Sugar Glaze!"
    Where does Two Down, Bun to Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    "Two Down, Bun to Go," or more accurately the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series, is my absolute all-time favorite…top spot bunches all H.Y. Hanna's books in a delicious tie! First, the mysteries are clever and very engaging, the characters well-developed (some very colorful), and the description provided in H.Y. Hanna's writing paints a marvelous picture of the Oxford area, the Universities, the little tearoom, and intricacies of the characters and their thoughts and feelings. This audiobook, delightfully enriched by Pearl Hewitt's artistic talent, I'd listen to again, when I am normally a 'one and done' type reader. Although I have listened to several audiobooks, no other has offered such a wonderful experience. Everything, including murder, sounds better with an English accent.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, I was on the edge of my seat as well as comfortably in my chair. I refer to this H.Y. Hanna book, as well as her series, as an exciting 'page turner." She has created in "Two Down, Bun to Go" a fascinating mystery weaving contemporary issues on altruism, alcoholism, antiquated traditions, and the plight of the homeless, as well as sibling and colleague rivalries. She also provides intriguing developments with the characters addressing rekindling of long-lost relationships, possible romantic triangles, imposing on ethics, connections between generations, and ties with close friendships that have invested me in this series...like a family.


    Have you listened to any of Pearl Hewitt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I am a devoted fan of Pearl Hewitt's. I have listened to her artistry narrating the first two books in this series, "Scone to Die For" and "Tea With Milk and Murder," and look forward to her continuing with the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series. I also listened to her narration of a favorite and popular classic "The Secret Garden." She has brought to all those projects a wonderful skill in presenting primarily the British accent, including various dialects, an American, Japanese, and Middle Eastern accent, and the nuances of feline's "Meow" that make me seek out her narrations when I look for audiobooks.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    H.Y. Hanna does an exceptional job of describing and developing suspenseful or tense situations that often, because of my engagement, have made me oblivious to things around me. Common reactions included "Oh!"... "No...No...No!"... "Whew!"... "Bloody Hell!"..., or relating the story to friends and family, "You've got to read/listen to this!"


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend H. Y. Hanna's Oxford Tearoom Mystery series in ANY form! The audio version of her books are greatly enriched by Pearl Hewitt's artistry, who provides a layer of enjoyment that one can not create reading for themselves. But, I would not pass up this series, if you are not a fan of audio books, because the series is available in print/eBook versions.

    This is a great book; this is the third book in the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series written by H.Y. Hanna and narrated by Pearl Hewitt. A sinister phone call in the middle of the night throws tearoom owner, Gemma Rose, straight into the heart of a new murder mystery - this time with her friend, Seth, arrested as the key suspect! The mysterious killing in the cloisters of an old Oxford college points to a bitter feud within the University - but Gemma finds unexpected clues popping up in her tiny Cotswolds village. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises.The narrator Pearl Hewitt did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    "Disappointment"

    What was wrong was how you are suppose to be friends with someone but then you have doubts that they would kill someone. Cassie and Gemma are not a friend I would want . Gemma is a privileged brat and I find it hard that Devlin would still deal with her. I love how they think they can solve crimes. You wanted Devlin to mess with an investigation but you and your frien Cassie didn't have Seth's back. Please don't be my friend you didn't accept the ring from Devlin because you are a spoiled privileged little brat. You did it with Cassie the book before it's all about her yes she saved Cassie but she also feels like she is the only person that counts. Devlin gravel at my feet I give up

    "This series gets better and better!..."

    Two Down, Bun to Go is an excellent cozy mystery. This is the third book in the series, and each one I've read has been better than the last. In this one, Gemma's good friend and old Oxford chum, Seth Browning, has been accused of murdering an Oxford professor, and Gemma is determined to prove Seth's innocence. The Old Biddies; three old ladies who help Gemma out at her Tearoom from time to time, and meddle in murder investigations, are HILARIOUS in this book, as are Gemma's mother's antics. Little mischievous Muesli the cat is still getting into things he ought not, and an education in British life is always fulfilling and a bonus. This is the fourth book I've read in the series (including the prequel), and it's my favorite. The audio narrator truly brings the stories to life. She does a stupendous job with the characters' voices and emotions. I love this series so much, and you're guaranteed to love it too.

    "Good!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this third instalment in the series. Gemma is embroiled in another escapade after her friend, Seth, is accused of a murder at Oxford University. The Old Biddies are also on hand to help along the investigation. It is a quick read and the mystery kept me turning the pages.<br/>I enjoy Lincoln's role as a rival for Gemma's affections but I like him too much to see him to get too romantically attached to her. Devlin is her one true love.<br/>I felt that the book lacked some of the spark and humour that I enjoyed so much in the first two. Gemma's hilarious mother is away on holiday for much of the story and I missed the extra light-heartedness that she brings. Hopefully we will see more of her in book 4.<br/><br/>I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
