If you are a fan of Midsomer Murders this book will be right up your ally. The story takes place in a fictitious collage at Oxford University and the surrounding area. What makes it even better is the Tearoom owner, Gemma, and her four helmet haired customers. Before you know it you will be laughing out loud at the predicaments they get into trying to solve the murder themselves. Throw in Gemma’s matchmaking mother and the humor continues.
All laughter aside Hsin-Yi did a great job writing this wonderful cozy mystery, using authentic British slang so that you felt you were actually in England. She also brought the story to life with well developed three demential characters and true-to-life descriptions of the area and events. She keeps you constantly guessing who the murderer was until the very end with several characters who had motives. Hsin-Yi, I commend you for a job well done.
