Muffin But Murder: 02/02/20
Muffin But Murder by Victoria Hamilton is the second of the Merry Muffin mystery series. Merry is getting Wynter Castle ready for a Halloween themed party with the hopes of wooing prospective buyers. She also has a possible heir who wants to split the estate. Before she can deal with him, she has another dead body on her property!
Getting Wynter Castle ready is going to be a multi-book process in between all the book specific murder mysteries. I'm honestly curious to see if the entire series will just be Merry trying to sell the estate! I know I could read the blurbs or reviews of later blurbs, but I'm choosing not to.
The particular murder is a grizzly one that is complicated by a large number of party crashers wearing similar costumes. There's also the location, an outside smoking spot, that Merry and her closest friends weren't really monitoring as none of them smoke. The solution this time reminded me of learning the trick to the shell game.
The book ends, by the way, with a marriage. Not Merry, but two of her friends. I'm going to admit that I didn't listen through the end of this coda.
The third book is Death of an English Muffin (2015).
