Publisher's Summary

When Oxfordshire tearoom owner Gemma Rose enters her little tabby, Muesli, in the cat show at the local village fair, the last thing she expects is to stumble across a murder. And when her meddling mother and the nosy Old Biddies decide to start their own investigation, Gemma has no choice but to join in the sleuthing. She soon finds there's something much more sinister sandwiched between the homemade Victoria sponge cakes and luscious jam tarts!

But murder isn't the only thing on Gemma's mind: there's the desperate house-hunting that's going nowhere, the freaky kitchen explosions at her quaint English tearoom, and an offer from her handsome detective boyfriend that she can't refuse! With things about to reach boiling point, can Gemma solve the mystery before the killer strikes again?

    Another fun read in the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries.
    The identity of the killer was a real mystery and kept me guessing until the end.
    All my favourite characters make an appearance and Gemma and Devlin's relationship motors along at a nice sedate pace. I love how the writer brings Muesli, the cat, into the main story line as well. A cat show was a completely different setting for a murder.
    I liked that Devlin was working on another case at the same time. He had a high profile agri crime case to solve and I felt that it could have had more of an impact on the story than merely facilitating an official reason for his presence at a village fete. There wasn't much of a resolution to the crimes he was investigating and I thought it would have been more interesting if the Gemma's murder investigation had been connected more. I would have liked Gemma to have faced some danger along the way or to have crossed paths with Devlin's criminal gang to add a little bit of excitement.

    A nice, charming mystery with humour. I would recommend this series.

    "Love , love, love this series!"
    What did you love best about Till Death Do Us Tart?

    I love how the relationships between the characters keeps developing with each instalment. It was nice to see my old favourites including, of course, Gemma's Mom and the Old Biddies back again. Oh, and of COURSE...Muesli too! There were a lot of great suspects and I kept wondering, how did the murder happen.


    What other book might you compare Till Death Do Us Tart to and why?

    I am a new fan of Sherlock Holmes and have been listening to the complete works on Audible, I love how both series are UK based.


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

    I think Pearl does an amazing job of stepping right back into the characters where she left them in the previous books. How she keeps all the voices straight from each other I can only imagine. I've also listened to her on a few P O Dixon stories and those were great too, a ride in time back to Mr. Darcy's age. Her voice is great both as more formal or more informal, depends on the book and characters.


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

    The antics of Gemma's mom's match making ways and descriptions of a 'crazy cat ladies' home really made me smile :)


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't checked out this series yet, please do. I've read a lot of books on my Kindle and Audible and without a great author and great voice performance, a lot is lost. Both these ladies are top notch in my book so I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did! Enjoy!

    Disclosure: A review copy of this book was sent to me by the author. All of the above opinions are my own.

    "A perfect road trip listen!"

    I loved this 4th entry in the Oxford tearoom series. They just keep getting better and better!
    Pearl Hewitt does a fabulous job with the different voices, and her accent and voice are lovely to listen to. As always, the ensemble of multi-faceted characters in the story kept me guessing till the end.
    H. Y. Hanna has created a charming little world in the Cotswolds that I wish I could visit, and filled it with interesting people that I wish I could meet. And an adorable cat named Muesli will capture your heart!
    if you enjoy clean, cozy and fun mysteries, give this one a listen. I highly recommend this series!
    My only complaint is that the recipe at the end of the story is not included in the audio version. it would be great if Pearl Hewitt could read that as well.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. It is seriously one of my favourite cozy series, and Pearl Hewitt brings the characters to life. I really enjoy the narration and look forward to each new book in the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I don't want to give anything away. But I love how every time I listen to one of these books, it's like visiting old friends. The characters are really wonderful and narration is just perfect.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't know if I can pick a favourite scene, but I do love the Old Biddies. They really do steal the show, and provide lots of great moments!


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

    This book, as with all of the previous books, have provided me with many hours of good times and truly laugh out loud moments.


    Any additional comments?

    The stories have just enough red herrings and twists to keep you guessing until the very end. Characters are fun, quirky, and very well developed. If you haven't tried out any of the books in the series, I suggest you start! It's everything you want in a great cozy. Looking forward to the next one!

    What made the experience of listening to Till Death Do Us Tart the most enjoyable?

    I truly enjoy listening to the narrator, she makes the story come to life for me. I enjoy doing needlework and listen to audible books while I am doing my needlework. I feel like I'm in England, in that quaint little village helping solve the crime.


    What other book might you compare Till Death Do Us Tart to and why?

    The Agatha raisin series


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

    Yes, she's splendid!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Oh I have no

    For those that have been enjoying the series, I suggest keeping up with it. It's fantastic! Book we get more and more of an idea of the characters their flaws the things that make them tick and their good points.

    "Another solid mystery in the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries series"

    4.5 stars. H.Y. Hanna thoroughly entertains us in Till Death Do Us Tart. I have come to count on a solid mystery, infused with humour, when I take on any of the books in her Oxford Tearoom Mystery series. This book was no exception.
    When a snobby woman falls dead at the village fete, Gemma, to her detective boyfriend's dismay, delves into the investigation. And as she follows her suspicions we, the readers, come along on the zany ride that keeps us enraptured until we discover who the true culprit is. An excellent mystery with THE BEST audio narrator.

    I love this series but the main character is just awful in this one. Browbeating grieving daughter for autopsy was just nasty.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the fourth book in the Oxford Tearoom Mystery series written by H.Y. Hanna and narrated by Pearl Hewitt. When Oxfordshire tearoom owner Gemma Rose enters her little tabby, Muesli, in the cat show at the local village fair, the last thing she expects is to stumble across a murder. And when her meddling mother and the nosy Old Biddies decide to start their own investigation, Gemma has no choice but to join in the sleuthing. She soon finds there's something much more sinister sandwiched between the homemade Victoria sponge cakes and luscious jam tarts! But murder isn't the only thing on Gemma's mind: there's the desperate house-hunting that's going nowhere, the freaky kitchen explosions at her quaint English tearoom, and an offer from her handsome detective boyfriend that she can't refuse!

    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 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.
