I really enjoyed this Christmassy, Murder Mystery. I bought this at the local Goodwill store and I've given it a 5* rating. This pulled me in quickly and reminds me a little bit of a big time Christmas movie. There certainly plenty of twists and turns even though everybody knows who is behind the murders and such going on in this town. It's a wonderful read by Mother and daughter authors.

I really enjoy this author's writing style and have read quite a few of her books. I like the way the chapters are short and go back and forth between different peoples POV.
I did find this book a bit bleaker than some of her other ones. I enjoyed the beginning more and I enjoyed it less as I got to the end. I didn't like the resolution of who did it and found it a bit unsatisfying.
I did find it super interesting that the idea for this book came from a news article the author read about a young man who disappeared 35 years ago from his college dorm and phones home every year or so.
I'm a bit torn about my rating on this one because I had a very hard time putting the book down, but towards the end I was not enjoying it as much. I think it was probably 2.5 stars.

This was a very quick book and it only took me a few hours to read. The whole story takes place during Christmas Eve night. A little boy is taken hostage by a man who's escaped from prison. The format is a bit different from a lot of the other books I've read by this author. A lot of the books I've read by her have many POV and you don't know who committed the crime. In this book there are a few different POV but you know the whole time who the bad guy is and there isn't a mystery but it is suspenseful as you wait to see what's going to happen.
It happens on Christmas Eve but it didn't feel very Christmassy. It held my interest but I wouldn't say that I would recommend it.
There is some blasphemy and the bad guy is quite bad and not remorseful and it had a bit of a darker feel to the story.

Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under suspicion, is a success. Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under suspicion: a cold case about the Cinderella murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised many questions.

There were a lot of characters that were suspicious but the story kept them clear so it wasn’t hard to follow. There wasn’t a lot of suspense but the story kept my interest and the main characters were likable. This was a light and easy read.… (mer)
