Georgina Strange is just like any other Oxford University fresher. She suffers from imposter syndrome, loathes exams, and doesn’t know what she’ll do after graduation. Oh, one small difference: Georgina is 60 years young. Laid off and recently widowed, Georgina trades her posh London digs for a dormitory in the fabled City of Dreaming Spires. But trouble abounds when Georgina spars with a most disagreeable fellow student, whose enemies include academic rivals and jilted lovers. And when Georgina discovers the obnoxious ne’er-do-well choked to death with one of her homemade scones, she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. The only suspect without an alibi, Georgina vows to clear her name by finding the culprit herself. Georgina’s Oxford career and freedom are on the line, and, if the killer has anything to say about it, so is her life.
Scones and Scoundrels is the first book in the Scheming Spires Mystery series. Clean and fast-paced, this book is perfect for fans of traditional British cozies. Can you crack the case before Georgina does?
With its quirky main character and lovely setting, this Cozy Mystery thoroughly entertained me and had me craving scones. I look forward to the next installment in this series.
