Today I'm joining 
Berkley Mystery 
in celebrating the release of  
Book 2 in the Hungarian Tea House Mysteries
by Julia Buckley

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...

Even better than the first book in this series, author Julia Buckley is heading her Hungarian Tea House Mysteries into a long running series.

Having recently been working on a resale business, I was drawn into DEATH OF A WANDERING WOLF from the very first page as protagonist, Hana, finds a rare wolf figure at an unbelievable price. I know the excitement of finding a hidden gem at a great deal! Thankfully, unlike Hana’s piece, mine haven’t been a risk to my life.

I love the setting of the Hungarian Tea House even though I know nothing about the Hungarian culture. Being surrounded by all of the beautiful items and delicious food, not to mention a fun cast, was simply a joy.

And last, but certainly not least, author Buckley crafted a first class murder mystery that had me jumping at shadows, and the ringing of my phone. Seriously! I was so focused on the pages, that when an outside influence got through to me, I would great at my heart!

A wonderfully cozy read, DEATH OF A WANDERING WOLF is the perfect companion to keep you happy on a quiet day at home.
