As the fourth book in the Merry Muffin Mystery Series opens we find Merry Wynter coming home to Autumn Vale after an extended amount of time spent overseas. As excited as she is to get home and get her life back to normal, she finds an old foe, Opera singer Roma Toscano, living in her castle. Not only does Roma cause conflict with Merry, but she also alienates herself with many of the Autumn Vale townspeople. But when Minnie Urqhart winds up dead, Roma ends up front and center as the suspect in the murder.

The Merry Muffin series has been one of my favorites since I read the first book, Bran New Death, and because of story lines like this one, I keep coming back for more! I found this mystery to be an intriguing one that kept me guessing right up until the last few pages and even then I was shocked. Since the beginning, there have been so many great characters and they continue to develop and grow and I am so happy to see the continuing romance that Merry is involved in!

Overall, Much Ado About Muffin was another great addition to this series. It was a fast read, continuing this series into baked goodness. And don't forget to check out the yummy muffin recipes in the back of the book, they never disappoint!
