Summary

In the new Vintage Kitchen Mystery from the author of No Grater Danger, when the town's resident Scrooge is found dead, Jaymie says, "Bah humbug!" to murder....

Now that Thanksgiving's behind her, vintage cookware enthusiast Jaymie Leighton Müller is excitedly making plans for the upcoming Dickens Days festival - the town's month-long celebration leading up to Christmas. With a hot cider booth on the village green to warm the hearts and bodies of the townsfolk and a diorama featuring a scene from A Christmas Carol, things are shaping up for a festive season - until the town's local Scrooge is found murdered, a vintage pudding mould covering his cracked skull.

Nearly everyone had a reason to dislike Evan Nezer - either for his bullying ways or his obnoxious arrogance - but with his body being found in Jaymie's diorama, she'll have to figure out who hated him enough to see him dead. With many suspects and even more secrets coming to the surface as she investigates, Jaymie feels buried by a blizzard of clues. But with Dickens Days on hold until the police can nab the killer, she's determined to catch the culprit so the ghost of Evan Nezer doesn't cast a pall over the whole Christmas season.

Very entertaining

Good story with an interesting mystery. There were several twists and turns and a lot of reasons not to like the victim. The pacing is slow and it seems like the narrator was whispering. Overall it's an entertaining story.

GOOD READ BUT

I LOVE THIS SERIES, AND AS WITH A GOOD MANY I OVERLOOK POLITICAL AND PERSONAL VIEWS THAT DO NOT REFLECT MY OWN. FOR THE TIME BEING, IT IS STILL A FREE COUNTRY. HOWEVER, AS MUCH AS I LIKE THIS SERIES, I AM OFFENDED BY THE BLATANT INDICTMENT OF "CONSERVATIVES" AS "RIGHT WING THUGS." I HOLD CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL VIEWS, AND I AM A CHRISTIAN (THE KIND WHO KNIWS THE BIBLE US GOD'S WORD AND TRIES TO LIVE BY IT.) YET, NO ONE WHO KNOWS ME, WHETHER OR NOT WE AGREE POLITICALLY OR RELIGIOUSLY, WOULD CONSIDER ME UNKIND. MY FRIENDS RUN THE SPECTRUM. I READ COZIES BECAUSE I WANT TO RELAX AND ENJOY, NOT TO BE BOMBARDED BY HATEFUL NAME CALLING.
