Much Ado About Muffin: 07/17/21

Much Ado About Muffin by Victoria Hamilton

Much Ado About Muffin by Victoria Hamilton is the fourth Merry Muffin mystery. Merry Wynter has been in Spain with her in-laws for an extended stay. She returns home to find that Pish has taken in an opera singer, Roma, with a nasty attitude.

Barely home, Merry discovers the body of the postmaster. Evidence on hand suggests that Roma Toscano carried out her latest threat. Before Merry can even begin to investigate she finds herself in danger. Is it Roma or someone else?

Minnie Urqhart's death brings to surface stories from her past. Her history is similar thematically to that of Nessa Renchrik in [LINK]Death Gone A-Rye[/LINK] by Winnie Archer (2021). What differs is that Minnie despite her corruption was subtler in her actions — though her intent was just as self centered and nasty.

The fifth book in the series is Muffin to Fear (2017)
