DEATH ON THE NIGHT OF LOST LIZARDS is book three in the Hungarian Tea House Mystery series by Julia Buckley. Hana Keller and her tea-leaf reading grandmother are back in action with this super exciting installment. I always enjoy the banter and sense of community that this series has, but it felt even more potent with this particular book. I read this book very quickly, which tells you just how fun and exciting it is.
The local professor who first gets killed really sparks the intrigue of this book, but there are so many other aspects of this book that I really enjoyed too. An example is the subtle romance thread that is hidden within this mystery. It’s not so overpowering that it takes away from the mystery, but instead complements it in a way that is satisfying for the reader.
This much intrigue and charm is sure to be a hit with fans. If you haven’t tried the Hungarian Tea House mystery series by Julia Buckley yet, then what are you waiting for? You’ll definitely be in for a treat!
