The Christmas Scarf Murder: Carlene O’Connor, Maddie Day, Peggy Ehrhart
A delightful trilogy of treats is in store for fans of cozy holiday mysteries. Christmas Scarf Murder provides 3 festive and well-written tales by 3 different mystery authors – all with a winning track record.
CARLENE O’CONNOR’S CHRISTMAS SCARF MURDER gives us an Irish holiday crime featuring Siobhan O’Sullivan and her new hubby. Both are in law enforcement and get caught up during the holiday season with thefts at the Kilbane Elder Care Home.
Five of the residents are robbed. Among the stolen items: a cane, jewelry and a hand-made Christmas scarf. There’s no rhyme or reason for the mishmash of sentimental items pilfered during, what should be, the most joyous time of the year.
It’s a frustrating crime to solve, but not nearly as frustrating as a holiday homicide tied into the missing items – particularly the missing scarf.
MADDIE DAY’S SCARFED DOWN finds Robbie Jordan, owner of Pans N Pancakes country store and restaurant, busily preparing for Christmas while the local knitting club meets regularly at her establishment. But when murder by scarf takes down one of the club members, Robbie’s taking it personal and gets to sleuthing.
In small-town Indiana, it’s hard to imagine there’s a killer on the loose. Butin this holiday crime, there’s plenty of motives and more than enough suspects to overload Santa’s sleigh.
PEGGY EHRHART’S DEATH BY CHRISTMAS SCARF adds a female scrooge to her holiday tale. For some folks, meanness comes naturally – and when you don’t just rain on someone’s parade, but completely annihilated it, you’re bound to get your “just desserts”.
This victim was definitely “naughty,” definitely “not nice” and definitely “murdered by scarf.” With suspects galore, including the victim’s own sister and bitter brother-in-law, you’ll have a hard time coming up with a viable motive AND a viable killer.
Cozies with Christmas treats and sweets plus an overabundance of holiday spirits can sometimes seem excessive – but NOT for these over-the-top spirited tales filled with down-home Christmas warmth and laced with murder.
Even I was impressed with the “how to” creativity to commit “murder by scarf.” Grab your copy today. With Christmas being a busy time of year, this trilogy of 3 coziesall rolled into one book, is perfect for holiday reading.
Holiday shopping done? Take some downtime to read The Christmas Scarf Murder. Just finished baking the holiday cookies? Take a sweet break and read Scarfed Down. Done with Christmas dinner and got rid of all the guests (and I don’t mean “killed them off”)? Then reward yourself by settling in with some holiday eggnog and Death By Christmas Scarf.
