“It took me a while to get into this book. There are a lot of extra details, which can be seen as a good thing. However, it’s a double-edged sword because too much of that extra information and make the story feel bogged down and that’s what I felt like happened here. It’s unfortunate because I like Hana a lot.”

After reading the first book in the series, I was interested in Julia Buckley’s writing. This is only the second book that I’ve tried by this author and while I enjoyed the concept on this series in the first book of the series, I felt like DEATH OF A WANDERING WULF took a bit of a different approach than I was expecting.

As you can see, the title of the series is A Hungarian Tea House Mystery and what I liked about the first book is that it is a cultural experience in addition to a mystery story. With this book, I do still feel like you get that unique cultural experience. However, the focus of this book is Hana’s interest in a particular porcelain treasure. I guess it still matches well with the theme, but I didn’t find myself as invested in this storyline and concept as much as the first book.

That being said, it took me a while to get into this book. There are a lot of extra details, which can be seen as a good thing. However, it’s a double-edged sword because too much of that extra information and make the story feel bogged down and that’s what I felt like happened here. It’s unfortunate because I like Hana a lot.

I’m hoping that the next book in the series will be a better match for me. So while the theme of this story didn’t work as well for me, I am hoping that the next concept will interest me more.

That’s disappointing. I’ll wait for book 3’s review then.
