  • A fantastic addition to this enchanting series!

    4.5 stars Hana Keller and her family run Maggie's Tea House, an establishment heavily influenced by the family's Hungarian heritage and specializing in European-style traditional tea service. The women in Hana's family all have psychic abilities and can sense things about people and the future. In this second installment in Julia Buckley's A Hungarian Tea House Mystery series, Hana is enjoying a rare day off work. She goes to a yard sale and finds a couple of treasures, including a rare wolf figurine and two paintings. When she gets home, her detective boyfriend, Erik, finds a tracker on the figurine and goes to confront the man in charge of the yard sale. But when they arrive at his house, they find him dead. Erik and Hana are determined to solve the case, especially when it becomes apparent that Hana is the killer's next target. A fantastic addition to this enchanting series by Julia Buckley. The writing style flowed so effortlessly that I finished the story in 24 hours, which doesn't happen very often. I really loved the setting - it had an almost atmospheric feel to it. The Hungarian traditions, food, and folklore added a unique layer to the story. The characters are developing nicely. We learn more about Hana's psychic abilities and family history. The introduction of Erik's sisters added plenty of entertainment to the story. It was fun seeing Hana bond with them, and I hope they will continue to make appearances in the upcoming books. The mystery was well done and kept me engaged. There were enough suspects, clues, and action to keep readers on their toes. Overall, this is a charming paranormal cozy, with strong female characters, heartwarming family relationship, and mouthwatering descriptions of food. Julia Buckley is one of my favorite cozy mystery authors and I highly recommend any of books. Thank you to Edelweiss and Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • Fantastic Cozy Mystery series, Highly Recommend

    I really enjoyed Death in a Budapest Butterfly, so when I saw book two in An Hungarian Tea House Mystery, Death of a Wandering Wolf by Julia Buckley was coming out, I knew I wanted to read it. And book two was just as good as the first one, which often isn’t the case in cozy mystery series. Buckley continues with her excellent character development. We get to know more about Hana and her family, along with their psychic abilities and we get to meet some new characters, including Det. Wolf’s sisters, whom I hope to see in future books. And talking about psychic abilities, Hana is starting to explore hers more, which I absolutely love. And I adore that Det. Wolf continues to believe in Hana’s powers and share information with her in regards to the case. So many cozies have the police presence or even the heroine’s family and friends discourage her from investigating, so when I find a cozy mystery series that encourages the main character, I get very happy. In this book, as in the first book, we learn a bit about Hungarian folktales and a lot about Hungarian cooking. Death of a Wandering Wolf inspired me to look up a recipe for a Hungarian casserole that turned out delicious and helped to encourage me to try more of the recipes at the end of the book. As for the mystery itself, there were lots of suspects and at no point was I absolutely certain who might be the killer. Another fantastic book in An Hungarian Tea House Mystery series and one that I highly recommend.

  • I loved it!

    This is the second book in the series and one word: wow! This was much more than a cozy mystery (not to take away from a really well written whodunit). The victim’s back story was captivating, which included paintings, past loves and his life in Hungary. It was rich, vibrant, filled with family love and heritage. Add in a dash of psychic abilities and this book was one I could not put down. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next one in the series! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
