5/5 Christmas Geese

On The Back:

A Scrooge steals presents right from under Sophie Winston’s family Christmas tree. Then her sister-in-law’s father show’s up with a diva girlfriend just a month after his separation. More than one person is thinking of committing a merry murder-until it actually happens! With many under suspicion for the deadly deed, can Sophie find the murderer and restore the Christmas spirit before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:

This book was the best yet int his series, which is saying a lot since all of the books in the series have been first-rate mysteries.

I’ve heard of some readers saving holiday themed books for that holiday to read, but I’m the opposite. I want to read it when it’s not that holiday so I can get a change of scenery. This mystery was perfect for that, it’s been getting warmer and warmer where I live so it was nice reading about Christmas.

Sophie once again proved to be an exceptional character who’s smart and knows tons, but yet doesn’t shove it in people’s faces. I love it when her family, especially Hannah, joins her on her mystery capers, they’re all hilarious and at like a family would. Her mom fulfils the cozy cliche of being overbearing, but the author does it in a way that doesn’t make the mom obnoxious. This book also makes he creepy police detective, Kenner, a little bit more human, which is a plus because it makes him more three-dimensional.

The mystery was faced-paced and, for a little bit, chaotic in a good way. It left me wondering who it could possibly be. The killer was a bit of a surprise, though he was in front of me the whole time.

Overall an exceptional book. Really looking forward to the next one!
