The recently divorced Martin Dubinski arrives at the buffet with his new Vegas showgirl wife--all wrapped up in glitter and fur. His ex-wife, however, seems as cool as chilled eggnog. And when...
Hannah's mother's antique Christmas cake knife disappears, its discovery in the décolletage of the new--and now late--Mrs. Dubinski puts the festivities on ice.
With everyone stranded at the community center by a blizzard, Hannah puts her investigative skills to the test, using the ingredients at hand: half the town of Lake Eden--and a killer. Now, as the snowdrifts get higher, it's up to Hannah to dig out all the clues--and make sure that this white Christmas doesn't bring any more deadly tidings. . .
This is my favorite cozy mystery series and I can never get enough of Hannah Swensen and the murder mysteries she always seems to get involved in! In this installment, it is christmas time and everyone is gathering together to test out the recipes that are being used in the Lake Eden Cookbook. But when someone goes missing, and then ends up dead it is up to Hannah and the police to find out who did it before the killer strikes again!
This book is a lot shorter than some of the authors other books and can be read in one sitting. In fact, even though the book is longer in page length, half of it is filled with all sorts of amazing recipes that are to be included in the cookbook. You can bet that I will be trying out many of them in the future! Joanne Fluke makes these recipes so easy to follow.
With that being said, this is another great addition to the series and it's so nice to see the characters grow though each book. Fans of cozy mysteries, this series would be PERFECT for you! Just be sure to read the books in order as that is how they are meant to be read (otherwise, you will be confused because each book surrounds the same character- amateur sleuth Hannah Swensen).
