It’s Christmastime in the cozy, magical town of Christmas River again. But not all is merry and bright for pie baker extraordinaire and mystery solver Cinnamon Peters this holiday season.

When her best friend is accused of stealing money from a rival craft vendor at the Last Chance Holiday Market, Cinnamon finds herself in a race against the clock to prove Kara’s innocence in time for Christmas. Will Cinnamon and her Sheriff husband find the true culprit in time? Or will Kara end up spending this holiday behind bars?

Full of heartwarming twists and holiday charm, the latest novella from the Amazon bestselling cozy mystery series is sure to brighten your heart this Christmas season. So curl up with a cup of cocoa, cozy up by the fire, and get ready for a long afternoon of joyous holiday reading!



This Christmas River novella is a heartfelt, heartwarming addition to this fantastic series.  I really wish that I could go to Christmas River and spend time with my friends, that would be a real Christmas present to me.

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Cinnamon and Kara are working at the Last Chance Holiday Market, selling Kara’s holiday ornaments.  When someone steals money from a vendor, Kara is accused of being the thief.  With the help of Cinnamon’s husband, Daniel, the sheriff, they have to get to the bottom of it before Kara is sent to the slammer.  Anytime I get to spend time with Cinnamon and her family and friends is time well spent.  And getting to spend time with Cinnamon’s grandpa, Warren, is just icing on the cake. 

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing  and it brought the book to life in my mind’s eye.  I enjoyed the fact that there was not a murder to solve, but the was still a mystery.

I would highly recommend this nivella, and the whole series, to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  Give yourself an early Christmas present and read it.
