Hi lovely book fanatics!
I’m finishing wrapping the presents and cleaning the house to have everything ready for the big day! I have to go to the grocery store and pick up everything I need to make my Christmas breakfast casserole and the dinner we will be having, which I dread because I know it is going to be packed wherever I go to shop. I hope everyone is well and ready for the jolly fat man!
If you are just now tuning in Mersadies from Between the Bindings and I are doing a “25 Books of Christmas” blog event together! We are alternating days and will post a book each day that either has a Christmas theme or is just a great read for the holidays. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this great holiday read!
Continuing in the Christmas countdown… Day 23
Published November 28, 2017
“Santa’s summer vacation plans turn deadly in this festive mystery from the author of Rest Ye Murdered Gentlemen and We Wish You a Murderous Christmas.
The town of Rudolph, New York, has the Christmas spirit all year long—but when homicide heats up a summer holiday, it’s up to shop owner Merry Wilkinson to wrap up the case.
In Rudolph, Christmas in July heralds Santa’s arrival by boat to begin his summer vacation at the lake, and Merry Wilkinson, owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, is looking forward to a busy weekend. But she’s caught off guard when her ex-fiancé, Max Folger, unexpectedly arrives with a team from a lifestyle magazine wanting to do a feature on the July festivities.
It’s clear that Max’s visit has less to do with business and more to do with winning back Merry’s heart. Merry has too much on her plate to deal with an old flame, but when Max is found strangled to death in Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, she must find out who wanted him dead—and stop a killer from ruining the summer holiday cheer.”
Mysteries are one of my favorite genres but I don’t think I’ve ever read a Christmas themed one, let alone a whole Christmas themed mystery series! The premise of this novel sounds intriguing and the characters’ festive names are too fun. If you want a little summer in your Christmas holiday and need a bit of a break from all the shopping and planning, then cozy up with this exciting read!
