    Thanksgiving novella to tide me over

    Jill and Greg are joining friends and family at a cabin in Oregon for the thanksgiving week. Before the other arrive, Jill, Greg, Blake, and Kathi decide to get some fun in driving on the sand dunes. While out for a ride, Blake and Kathi flip their vehicle and Kathi finds a diamond ring still attached to a hand that has been mummified. When the body turns out to be the fiancé of the dead woman, he becomes suspect number one. But the friends don’t believe that Caleb killed Dania and they set a plan in motion to find the true killer. With Kathi being a ringer for Dania, the friends discover that another woman who looked like Dania also went missing and it’s a race to find the killer before he makes Kathi the next victim. A great series and it’s wonderful to get a novella to tide me over until the next book is released. Lynn Cahoon is one of my must read authors and I adore her alter aliases as well. If you haven’t read anything by this authors, this is a great standalone to introduce you to the series and author.

    Thanksgiving and Mummies, Oh My!

    I loved this little mystery. It had an interesting premise, and the ending was satisfying. Although, I wish there was a better reason why the culprit committed murder. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from Netgalley for an honest review.

    Quick-moving, terrific setting

    A Very Mummy Holiday is a Thanksgiving novella of the Tourist Trap Mystery series. Jill and Greg have gone to the central Oregon coast with their friends for the holiday and to ride the sand dunes. When their friend Kathi finds a mummy in the dunes, they find out the son of the resort owners is the primary suspect in his girlfriend’s disappearance. There are also a group of creepy tough guys that hang out and cause trouble. Jill and Greg look into the murder and help to bring it to a close. Because it was a novella, the reader doesn’t find out what motivated the murderer, but it’s a quick-moving story in a terrific setting.

    A Tourist Trap Mystery Novella

    A Very Mummy Holiday by Lynn Cahoon is A Tourist Trap Novella. It can be read on its own, but I recommend reading one of the full-length stories first. Jill Gardner and Greg King are off to enjoy a week in Oregon, but things do not go as planned. I like that Jill is an empathetic person. She will not stand idly by while a person gets railroaded. I thought the story was engaging with friendly, relatable main characters. I like Lynn Cahoon’s conversational writing style. A Very Mummy Holiday moves along at a fast clip and the mystery is well-plotted. When Caleb’s missing fiancé, Dania turns up in the sand dunes, Caleb is the target of the local police’s investigation. Jill does a little online sleuthing searching for clues about Dania’s life. I like that Greg does not discourage Jill and he helps Jill with her quest for the truth. Readers will have no problem identifying the guilty party in this whodunit. However, I thought the mystery suited the length of the novel and the storyline. Jill and Greg are a cute couple who are well suited. I like that Jill brought Emma along with her on the trip. The one thing I wondered, though, is why Jill and Greg went off with this couple that they hardly knew. It is especially odd since Jill has very little in common with Kathi (my mother said I was overthinking it). A Very Mummy Holiday is a chance to catch up with Jill and the gang. A Very Mummy Holiday is an engaging cozy mystery with an energized Emma, a forlorn fiancé, iniquitous individuals, a coastline cadaver and stuffing squabbles.

    Entertaining Murder Mystery Novella

    This is a very short novella; less than 100 pages including the recipes. This is a good story with a good plot. It has as much fun interaction between the main characters as it does investigating the crime. The ending is not a great surprise, but it is all tied up fairly nicely. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.
