Death in a Budapest Butterfly
Death in a Budapest Butterfly | Julia Buckley
6 posts | 8 read | 9 to read
Hana Keller serves up European-style cakes and teas in her family-owned tea house, but when a customer keels over from a poisoned cuppa, Hana and her tea-leaf reading grandmother will have to help catch a killer in the first Hungarian Tea House Mystery from Julia Buckley. Hana Keller and her family run Maggie's Tea House, an establishment heavily influenced by the family's Hungarian heritage and specializing in a European-style traditional tea service. But one of the shop's largest draws is Hana's eccentric grandmother, Juliana, renowned for her ability to read the future in the leaves at the bottom of customers' cups. Lately, however, her readings have become alarmingly ominous and seemingly related to old Hungarian legends... When a guest is poisoned at a tea event, Julianas dire predictions appear to have come true. Things are brought to a boil when Hanas beloved Anna Weatherley butterfly teacup becomes the center of the murder investigation as it carried the poisoned tea. The cup is claimed as evidence by a handsome police detective, and the pretty Tea House is suddenly endangered. Hana and her family must catch the killer to save their business and bring the beautiful Budapest Butterfly back home where it belongs.

Juno giving us her profile today after seeing something outside.

Really enjoyed the first book in this cozy series. I didn‘t know much about the Hungarian culture so I found all the references very interesting. The main character was very likeable and was poked fun at for having a bit of a temper. Look forward to the next one.

Juno and I are so psyched for the first book in new cozy series by Julia Buckley. I just picked it up from the library and the spine hasn‘t been cracked yet. I‘m the first to read it!

Lindy “Paprika-scented resentment.” Ha! And this description reminds me very much of the old women in the Slovakian village that one side of my family comes from. 4mo

I loved the inclusion of Hungarian culture and folklore in this story and that the murder happened at the start. The immediate action and hunt for clues drew me in! I especially loved the chapter titles during the interrogation portions because the title named who was being interviewed, it was clever. There was a burgeoning romance taking place but I wish there had been a romantic buildup because as it was, I was not drawn to the romance.

Librarybelle This sounds so good! 4mo
