Death of a Wandering Wolf (A Hungarian Tea House Mystery #2) by Julia Buckley


Death of a Wandering Wolf

Mass Market Paperback, 304 pages
Expected publication: June 30th 2020 by Berkley





Goodreads synopsis: 
Hana Keller is enjoying a day off from serving up tea and delicious pastries at her family's Hungarian Tea House when her downtime turns deadly....

The only thing Hana loves more than a good cuppa is finding a delicate porcelain treasure to add to her collection. She's usually on the hunt for teacups but when she spots a rare wolf figurine at a local yard sale, she knows it's her lucky day. Hana also knows the wolf is valuable and tells the seller that he's charging too little for it. His reaction is peculiar--he says he received the wolf from someone he doesn't trust and he just wants it out of his life.

Hana is inspecting her new prize when she finds a tiny microchip attached to the bottom of the porcelain wolf. When she shows the figure to her police detective boyfriend, Erik, Hana is shocked to learn that the chip is actually a tracking device. They decide to confront the seller about the sneaky sale but when they arrive at his house, they find him dead. Erik and Hana now must hunt a calculating killer who has no intentions of crying wolf when it comes to murder...

4.5 stars

This is the second book in the Hungarian Tea House Mystery series by Julia Buckley.

This is the first book I have read in this series and I really enjoyed myself. It was a fun ride. Hana Keller found some prime pieces at an artist’s garage sale. When she gets home with a wolf statue, her cop boyfriend finds a tracker on the statue and goes to confront the artist. By the time he gets there the artist is dead.

I liked watching Hana as she learned to trust her own psychic powers and learning how to trust herself as she uses them.  Then the whole relationship between her and Erik Wolf was a fun addition to the plot. I loved the whole family dynamic here. It was just real fun! Definitely a story I think cozy lovers would enjoy. Check it out


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
