When you find an interesting new series, sometimes the 2nd story is slightly not as intriguing. Fortunately, this is not true of With Scream and Sugar. Minnie is back with all the sass she started with in the 1st of the series. Fitz is hauled in front of the dreaded Vampire council due to another murder in the vicinity of the tearoom, the tour guide of the Regency Group celebrating Galentine's Day in the restaurant. Minnie rather naively speaks up for him at the meeting. Leader Darius wants Fitz confined to the vampire nest, declaring that that the murder brings too much attention from humans. When she offers to find the murderer, Darius gives her 3 days or Fitz must lose his independence. Something is off about him but Minnie is determined to get justice for both Fritz & the tour guide. Because she just can't lose him now.
I am so in love with this series! We catch back up with Minnie just as she is finally getting comfortable with her new job at the tea room. She finds herself having to go with her vampire boss when is summoned by the Vampire Council thanks to another murder that happened by the tea room. Without thinking about she agrees to solve the murder in an effort to save her boss. This sure makes things interesting as she is under a tight time line. Set in a fascinating world you will quickly find yourself loving Minnie and all her sass. I cannot wait to see what she gets up to next. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars
Wow! Two murders for the price of one! Not only that but Minnie has the added stress of saving herself and Fitz from the Vampire Council. The mystery of the two murders was intriguing and enticing. I enjoy reading how Minnie solves the murders, she has such an interesting mind! This was fun to read and I love the camaraderie of the butlers and Minnie. I really enjoy the friendship between Minnie, Gus, and Fitz it is nice. I also enjoy Tilda, I hope she has more of a role in future books. A totally fun book!
I really enjoy this series. It’s Valentine’s day but there is a lack of love in the air. A murder at the tea shop leaves Fitz in trouble and Minnie becoming a tour guide to a group of women who are having some trouble getting along. As if the fighting women aren’t enough, Minnie needs to solve not one but two murders in order to help Fitz with the vampire council. It’s a quick enjoyable read with likable characters.
Thoroughly enjoyed the second book in this series, highly recommend it. Minnie is enjoying her new job at the tea rooms when another murder occurs. Unless she can find the human killer both she and her vampire boss will be in big trouble with the vampire council. Not to mention its Valentine's day and she seems to be having feelings for both her boss Flix and one of the detective on the case. Can she solve the murder case and her feelings? Can't wait for the next book in the series
I am enjoying where this series is going. The heroine is very good at investigating murders. The clues come together at a good pace and the ending is complete with no loose ends. Her vampire friends are kind and loyal. And she has a mature outlook on life. Thankfully! Good book.
I was not very fond of the first book in this series. I liked it enough to try this book. I like the story, the unique style of this series. The places mentioned in the book are wonderful. Learning the unusual world along with this delightful witch is interesting. I will continue reading the series.
I love these tea room mysteries. Erin puts together some interesting characters and uses diverse circumstances to tell a spellbinding tale that keeps you entertained and unable to put them down. I want her ex to get his comeuppance. Gus and Fitz and the Butler Boys are a fun part of it all as well.
