About A Christmas Candy Killing

Alex and Hannah, twin sisters, own Murder and Mayhem, a bookshop in a small mountain town in Montana. It’s the busy Christmas season when a local pillar of the community is murdered and Alex is one of the main suspects. Worried that the police aren’t investigating, she decides to start her own search for the killer.

My thoughts about A Christmas Candy Killing

A Christmas Candy Killing gave me classic cozy vibes. You’ve got an older female amateur sleuth with an emotional and practical reason for sussing out the killer Jane, the victim, was one of Alex’s friends. Bonus – cute pup named Lady Watson.

The small town is full of quirky characters – many with motives and secrets. One of the sisters’ secret weapons is that Hannah dated one of the town’s deputies and they’re still on good enough terms that he’s willing to share confidential information.

You get delicious descriptions and even recipes of Hannah’s chocolate creations that Murder and Mayhem sells.

My one quibble is that as suspects get eliminated, it becomes glaringly obvious who the killer is.

But if you’re looking for a mystery with all of the holiday vibes, give this delicious read a try.

In closing

Perfect for fans of Eve Calder, Amy Pershing, and Darci Hannah.

About Christina Romeril

Christina Romeril loves to plot murders, especially by poisoning. When she’s not plotting how to kill one of her characters she’s coming up with ways to dispose of the body. Since writing her debut novel her husband’s friends have been regularly checking on his well-being.

Christina also loves to read, eat chocolates, and travel when she’s not in her she shed writing. She grew up in Southern Ontario and spent most of her summers in Muskoka swimming, boating, and generally getting into mischief. She’s lived on both coasts of Canada and has a love of being near the water and close to a forest. Thus, it makes perfect sense that she moved to the prairies of Southern Alberta over twenty years ago.

During the warmer months you’ll find her escaping to nearby Waterton Lakes National Park with her cooler stocked full of chocolate and pastries. Occasionally, the once avid hiker will even set out on one of the many hiking trails and hope she doesn’t run into a hungry bear.
