A Scone to Die for by H. Y. Hanna was a Net Galley read. The book was published on 18 January 2016 by Wishart Press. It is a cozy mystery and the first in a new series.
At first, the book and it’s characters did nothing for me but that changed. Gemma Rose isn’t a protagonist that instantly wormed her way into my heart. Instead, she quietly won me over with her actions and thoughtfulness. There is room for character growth in the upcoming books and I hope her sense of humor will be more evident.
As for the mystery, it was fairly plotted but it suffered from a lack of clues which would have allowed the reader to solve the mystery on their own. However that being said, I enjoyed the story and will read more in the series.
A solid three stars out of five, for the first in a new series it is a decent book.
