Residents of Rudolph keep the spirit of Christmas alive year-round—but their joy is threatened when a group of grinches visits the town, in the charming fourth installment of the Year-Round Christmas series.
It’s the week before Thanksgiving, and Merry Wilkinson, owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, is preparing for a weekend reunion of her mother’s college friends. But when the group of women comes into Merry’s shop, Merry is met with frosty attitudes and cold hearts.
The women argue amongst themselves constantly, and the bickering only intensifies after one of the friends is poisoned. With her father’s role as Santa in danger due to his proximity to the crime, Merry will need to use all of her investigative gifts to wrap this mystery up and save Santa and her favorite holiday.
Silent Night, Deadly Night by Vicki Delany is the fourth book in the Year-Round Christmas Mystery series. This cozy mystery series is in my top five favorite cozy series. I adore Merry, the town of Rudolph, and just everything about these mysteries. It was really fun to have a story set at Thanksgiving! This is one of those series where each book is even better than the last…even though it didn’t seem possible.
The book was well-written. Even though there were clues sprinkled throughout out the story, I didn’t figure out whodunit until Merry did. I love when that happens and I am able to just get lost in the mystery. I absolutely adored this book and am eagerly anticipating my next visit to Rudolph to check in with Merry.
