Murder Most Merry Reviews
Not a bad collection of Christmas based mysteries: 1) The Christmas Cat. The cat's owner finds the body of Santa Claus dead under the Christmas tree at the tree farm. 2) Christmas Margaritas and Murder. A Christmas trip to Cancun results in a murder based on Mayan sacrifice. 3) Marley's Ghost. The murder of a restaurant owner twenty five years age needs to be solved so that love can flourish. 4) Too Little Room at the Inn. A visit to a quiet country inn results in the murder of one of the guests. 5) Deep and Crisp and Even. The body of a stranger is found by a parishener going to Christmas Mass. 6) Slayride at Spirit Mountain. A woman is murdered on a ski run. These are all good stories but the one Deep and Crisp and even was my favorite. A good collection.
This is a compilation of six short mysteries having to do with the holiday season. A couple of them were very enjoyable but several were just okay. It did make me want to check out other work by a couple of the authors: Barbara Block and Toni Kelner.
I like 2 of the stories more than the others, which were only so-so. There's a little of everything in these short stories that someone is sure to find something they like in these cozy mysteries.
I read this for the J F Trainor story which I enjoyed. I also like Kelner, and have some Allen and Block which I haven't read. The Lamb story was excellent. Very enjoyable collection.
