Summary

It's beginning to look a lot like...murder.

It's Christmastime, and farmer Lucy Resnick is living the life she's always dreamed of. When she's not selling her jams, soaps, and mistletoe bundles at the Buttercup Christmas Market, she's enjoying cozy evenings by the fire with her knitting group - or her handsome veterinarian boyfriend Tobias Brandt. But less than a week before Christmas, a pall falls over the festive atmosphere when local man Randy Stone turns up with a knife in his back...and a sprig of mistletoe in his hair. 

Local sheriff Rooster Kocurek, never the brightest bulb on the string, is convinced it's an open-and-shut case - murder by jealous wife - but Lucy suspects otherwise. She soon discovers that Randy's life was more tangled than last year's Christmas lights...and that unless she wraps up the case fast, there might be more than one funeral this holiday season.

Cute

It’s a lovely cute book, easy listening if you want something light and fun. Don’t expect anything life changing or earth shattering, it’s the kind of thing you go for if you’ve had a long stressful day and just want to unwind.

Follow-up 4 Continues Yet Can Still Be a First Read

Easy to listen to reader. Story is well written and revolves around some characters introduced in previous books but each story has so far stood alone. I enjoyed the developing relationship between the two main characters. I am not a fan of novels in which too much detail is thrown into scenes of romance between characters. In this story the continued development of romance between the two is handled tastefully while not bringing the story to a grinding halt. Karen MacInerney does not "give" surprise information till near the conclusion when she neatly ties up all the loose ends. Am anxiously awaiting the next offering in this series.

Nice Christmas cozy mystery

The story was nice and Christmasy with a little murder thrown in. The forced accent and "breathlessness" of the narrator really grated on me by the end. She could have just read it in her normal voice and it would have been fine.

I Enjoy the Story

I enjoyed the story line but the fake Texas accents are a little too much.

Not just right

In the previous books Grandma's sent was lavender in this it was Rose. There were a few other differences as well almost as if it was 2 different author's.

So close to home!

I purchased this book by mistake! Thinking I was getting another book in a series I was reading about Christmas time mysteries. And I’m so glad I did! The setting of this book is a fictitious town though I believe it’s modeled after a town dear to my heart,Fayetteville Texas.

It Could Have Been Better with Different Narration

The story was not too bad. I liked the holiday theme but the narrator made the character sound much older than her years. I think the character was supposed to be I. Her early 40s but she sounded like someone in their 60s. The character even acted much older than her years. I suppose the author is at fault there. I’m in my 60s so it’s not like I mind a story about an older person but the experience was odd.

Hard to care about the characters--trying again

I don't know where to start on this book, but I think it's mainly the voices/accents for each of the characters - I can't seem to get involved with what they're doing...it's more 1.5 stars...definitely not 2.
The story and characters seem shallow - the story doesn't pull me in, and I want to enjoy the town of Buttercup...it's just not working for me.
I'm going to try a couple of additional chapters...also having to listen at 1.25 speed since the dialogue is rather slow.
