    Christmas Sweets!

    This was a great set of stories for anyone who loves Christmas. Ms. Fluke's story seemed more of a romance to me, while the other stories were mysteries. They were short novellas that whet my appetite for more. I received an advanced reader copy from Netgalley for my honest review.

    Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine, and Leslie Meier

    I received a free copy of CHRISTMAS SWEETS an anthology of three Christmas mysteries by Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine, and Leslie Meier. In the Twelve Desserts of Christmas by Joanne Fluke, Hannah Swensen helps out a family friend who, along with the friend’s crush, has been charged with minding six children boarding at school over the winter holidays. When the romance turns unexpectedly cold, it’s Hannah to the rescue. In Nightmare on Elf Street by Laura Levine, Jaine Austen takes a job as Satan’s elf. Um, I meant Santa’s elf? When the not-so-jolly St. Nick is stabbed with a snowflake, Jaine’s unjustly put on the naughty list. Jaine’s not the type of elf to sit on a shelf, so she’s back to sleuthing. In The Christmas Thief by Leslie Meier, Elizabeth Stone has her Christmas travel plans cancelled by her employer. Instead, Elizabeth must manage an event planned to celebrate wealth and to showcase some fancy jewels. When the jewels are stolen, Elizabeth is accused of assisting in the theft and no longer allowed to participate in the festivities, but she still can’t enjoy her Christmas because she’s been told, “don’t leave town.” Elizabeth’s mother Lucy surprises her with a visit and takes on the case. I enjoyed the collection. I am a fan of the Hannah Swensen series and liked this story, which included Hannah but was more about a family friend. I don’t usually read Laura Levine or Leslie Meier. If you like the silliness of Bridget Jones, then you’ll love Jaine Austen. If you like naïve good-hearted heroines, you’ll probably like Elizabeth Stone. I recommend this book to fans of Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine, and/or Leslie Meier. #ChristmasSweets #NetGalley

    Three charming Christmas cozies

    Christmas Sweets has three entertaining cozy mysteries. You will find yourself laughing frequently while reading them. While these stories had been published previously, I have not read them. I have read A Hannah Swensen Mystery series as well as A Lucy Stone Mystery series. This was my first A Jaine Austen Mystery, but I had no problem reading Nightmare on Elf Street. I was amazed at the trouble Jaine and her cat, Prozac could cause. Each story is well-written and easy to read. They are novella length so each story can be finished in one sitting. I enjoyed spending time with Elizabeth Stone in The Christmas Thief, and I like that Lucy brought along Miss Tilley to help. I appreciated the note from Leslie Meier at the end of the novella. The Twelve Desserts of Christmas contains recipes for each item that Hannah created. The mysteries are not complicated but I did not mind. They were fun mysteries that suited each story. I found each short story to be delightful, and I look forward to reading more books by these authors. Christmas Sweets contains three humorous cozy mysteries with a shameful Santa, a frustrating feline, spectacular sweets, a blingy ball, starry eyed schoolteachers, and an unwise wager.
