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.

Review:  I love holiday themed books and a holiday themed mystery is right up my alley. I was really glad to discover this series. This is the fourth book, but like most cozy series, you can just jump right in if you so wish, and I do.

Rudolph is a town in upstate NY where its Christmas all year long. That's kind of my place, as this is my favorite holiday.

This book can be summed up in a word, precious. Maybe even cute, but not in a bad way, in a feel good way.

Everything about the town and the characters makes you feel warm inside and ready for the holiday.

Four newcomers that are friends with Merry's mom, enter the picture and have a healthy dose of cranky make the story more fun, especially when one of them turns up dead.

All of this makes for a fun holiday themed cozy you won't want to put down.
