When Edwina “Sully” Sullivan’s life imploded, she left behind her job on the police force and her unfaithful husband to start a new life as the general manager of her hometown theater, the Cliffside Theater Company. For five years, she focused on budgets instead of crimes and kept the Cliffside running alongside its mercurial artistic director.

But when her best friend is arrested for killing his father, the rich and powerful Peter Whitehall, no one is looking for another suspect. So, in between keeping A Christmas Carol on budget and Scrooge sober, Sully dusts off her investigative skills to find a killer. Her two lives collide when her ex-husband gets on the suspect list and she’s forced to confront her past in order to save her present.

A Christmas Peril by J.A. Hennrikus is the first book in the Theater Copy Mystery series. Our main character, Sully, used to be a police officer, but now manages a theater in her hometown. She hasn’t had to deal with crime in several years. But when a prominent citizen is murdered, and a childhood friend is the prime suspect, Sully knows she has to help.

This cozy mystery is a lot of fun to read. I love the theater as a background setting and all of the quirky characters. I liked Sully right away. Christmas stories always make me happy, and this is a perfect one to read around the holiday.

There was some mild language in this book, so please note that if you don’t like that in your books.
