Double or Muffin - The Reviews Are In!


Double or Muffin (Merry Muffin Mystery #7)
by Victoria Hamilton

The reviews are in, and reviewers LOVE Double or Muffin!

For fans of cozy mysteries, baking, bed-and-breakfasts, opera, and small-town shenanigans, this is a wonderful series . . .

Hamilton brings all the drama of the entertainment world, complete with the shy newbies and the divas.

~This Is My Truth Now

Fast-paced and fascinating, you won't want to put this book down, but you will jump at every bump in the night.
~Laura's Interests

Double or Muffin is a lively cozy mystery with problematic prima donnas, mouthwatering muffins, a cunning cat, missing materials, a prying reporter, and attractive operatic arias.
~The Avid Reader

Double or Muffin was a fun, entertaining mystery and I loved every minute of it.
~Moonlight Rendezvous

I immediately connected with the author’s writing style, with her witty & smart first person narrative.
~Reading Is My SuperPower

The mystery is a real challenge. The plot within the reality show itself was fun. Virtually everyone has secrets to hide that eventually come to the surface.
~Diane Reviews Books

DOUBLE OR MUFFIN takes the drama of opera and mixes it with the salacious gossip of a tabloid with nods to current social issues to create a perplexing and eminently enjoyable mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

a varied mix of clues that will keep you guessing until it all plays out with some surprising results. I especially love her kitty who is quite the character in his own right. A really fun read that is sure to delight fans of cozy mysteries.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

I loved the cover. A room I would love to live in. The cover drew me and made me want to turn the pages.

About Double or Muffin:

In the new Merry Muffin Mystery, baker Merry Wynter must solve a disturbing crime among opera singers before the culprit decides it’s curtains for her . . .

When a reality TV show for aspiring opera singers descends on Wynter Castle, Merry’s got her hands full catering to the endless demands of the distinguished judges and ambitious contestants. Then mysterious rumors about the cast and crew begin to surface, suggesting that some of their performances may be filled with false notes. When a dogged reporter with an eye for scandal who’s been covering the competition is attacked and left for dead, Merry’s determined to discover who orchestrated the heinous deed.

 Her long list of suspects is filled with eccentric personalities, including a promiscuous tenor known for making unwanted overtures, a pampered young prodigy and her meddlesome mother, and a quiet up-and-comer whose shadowy uncle may have ties to the underworld. As the musical contest and Merry’s investigation near their finale, she’ll have to act fast to keep a conniving contestant from plotting out her final act . . .

Pre-Order NOW!
