This year, I’m determined to read some Christmas themed stories DURING the Christmas season, instead of in January, or in July, like usual.
I started with a brand new release written by fellow Inkwell Inspirations blogger (and debut author) Barbara Early entitled “Gold, Frankincense, and Murder.” Red herrings abound in this cozy mystery. I found myself asking “whodunit?” right up until the murderer’s unmasking.
A missing coworker.
A muscle-bound side-kick.
Sometimes the holidays can be murder.
Woven throughout the tale is the systematic dismantling of the heroine’s Christmas tree by her cat, Soot. I think I owned that cat, once upon a time. Topping off the story is a sweet touch of romance between the heroine and the hunky hero, Sam. Will they figure out their attraction before it’s too late?
As a Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden fan growing up, “Gold, Frankincense, and Murder” was a lovely reminder of what I loved about those early cozy mysteries.
