Scones, a tea shop in England, a kitty & a murder - yes, please! Thought I'd keep ahead of things and get this set up while the book is on sale. When an American tourist is murdered with a scone in Gemma Rose's quaint Oxfordshire 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 the village (not to mention a cheeky little tabby cat named Muesli), Gemma sets out to solve the mystery--all while trying to find her mother's iPad password and dealing with the return of her old college love, Devlin O'Connor, now a dashing CID detective. But with the body count rising and her business going bust, can Gemma find the killer before things turn to custard?
