Each day, between now and Christmas, I will feature three Christmas themed books that you might want to check out. Hope you find some that are new to you and some that you enjoy. Enjoy your reading.
Unlike quite a number of people, Agatha had not given up on Christmas. To have the perfect Christmas had been a childhood dream whilst surviving a rough upbringing in a Birmingham slum. Holly berries glistened, snow fell gently outside, and inside, all was Dickensian jollity. And in her dreams, James Lacey kissed her under the mistletoe, and, like a middle-aged sleeping beauty, she would awake to passion once more….
Agatha Raisin is bored. Her detective agency in the Cotswolds is thriving, but she’ll scream if she has to deal with another missing cat or dog. Only two things seem to offer potential excitement: the upcoming Christmas festivities and her ex, James Lacey. This year she is sure that if she invites James to a really splendid, old-fashioned Christmas dinner, their love will rekindle like a warm Yule log.
When a wealthy widow hires Agatha because she’s convinced a member of her family is trying to kill her, Agatha is intrigued—especially when the widow drops dead after high tea at the manor house. Who in this rather sterile house, complete with fake family portraits, could have hated the old lady enough to poison her?
Agatha sets out to find the murderer, all the while managing a pretty, teenage trainee who makes her feel old and planning for a picture-perfect Christmas, with James, all the trimmings, and perhaps even snow. (Goodreads)
It is almost Christmas and Harroway is starting to get a festive feel. Everyone is excited about the upcoming holidays, business at the salon is thriving and Bekki and gorgeous Detective Nick Malonie’s relationship is flourishing.
But then the dry cleaners is robbed and the owner kills the robber. The dry cleaner claims that it was in self-defense but Bekki suspects that this might not be as cut and dry as it seems and she goes searching for the truth.
Will Bekki discover the truth in time to have a memorable Christmas? Will Bekki’s search for the truth put her in harm’s way? Will Bekki finally commit to a serious relationship with Detective Nick?
Join Bekki and the gang for a Christmas special!
**This is book 6 in the Bekki the Beautician Cozy Mystery Series but they do not have to be read in order** (Goodreads)
As Harry well knows, there’s hardly a place on earth cozier than Crozet, Virginia, at Christmastime. Snowflakes, carolers, it’s all picture-perfect until Harry and her husband, Fair, find the tree they’ve chosen grimly decorated with a corpse. The tree farm is run by the Brothers of Love, a semimonastic organization whose members live atop the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Now, as the season grows merrier, a murderer is growing bolder. One by one, prominent men of Crozet are being crossed off Christmas shopping lists and added to the morgue. And if Harry and her four-legged helpers aren’t very good–and very careful–this Christmas will be her last. (Amazon)
