Hi Edith - thanks for your message and your kind words! :-) I'm so pleased you're enjoying my Oxford Tearoom Mysteries.

Book 4 is planned for release at the end of Jun 2016 (hopefully!) and I will be doing a cover & title reveal to my newsletter subscribers soon (I always tell my subscribers everything first!) but I can tell you the story will centre around a murder that happens when Gemma & Muesli attend a cat show at the local village fete...!

If you sign up to my mailing list, you'll be the first to get all the updates, as well as sneak previews of the new book. :-) Oh, and I'm also running an exclusive giveaway for my subscribers - the chance to win a set of the first 3 books, signed by me and "pawtographed" by Muesli! The email with details of the giveaway will be going out tomorrow. Here's the link to sign up to the newsletter: http://www.hyhanna.com/newsletter

Thanks again for getting in touch!

best wishes,
Hsin-Yi

Yes, I think so - there is a lot of foreshadowing early on in the stories and clues there pointing to the answers, although hopefully - if I've done my job well enough! :-) - the reader wouldn't realise until they get to the end that there were clues there all along.

The second book (A Secret in Time) is more like a traditional whodunnit with several contenders for the villain and you have to decide which clues are the red herrings, etc - the first book (Curse of the Scarab) is more like a suspense story, where you have a good idea of the villain but you're not sure how/what/where - and there is a clock ticking! :-)

The HOLIDAY Collection is made up of 3 short holiday-themed mysteries which are simpler - but there are still clues pointing to the answer as well, especially in Treasure from the Past (the Easter special)

Thanks for your interest! :-)

“reputation for being weird.” “Weird? What do you mean, weird?” “Like… the weather is always different there. It could be sunny everywhere else but when you get there, it’s grey and misty—or it’s raining all over the Cotswolds but completely dry in Tillyhenge… And if you’re driving, the GPS can’t find it, no matter how you give the directions. In fact, it doesn’t even show”
