I have this idea for a subscription box. I’m working out the details, but it would include a cozy mystery and be built around it. So I’m reading lots of cozy mysteries. Next up in my search was Rest Ye Murdered Gentlemen.
Merry Wilkinson lives in a town where it’s Christmastime all year long- Rudolph, NY. In fact, she owns a Christmas shop. As a store owner, of course, she entered a float in the semi annual Santa Claus parade.
But the tractor pulling Merry’s float is sabotaged, forcing her to pull out of the parade. At least Merry’s best friend Vicky wins the best float award.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Rest Ye Murdered Gentlemen, an English reporter appears to do a story on the town of Rudolph. He even attends the reception after the parade. Vicky, who specializes in gingerbread, creates a cookie in honor of Charles Dickens and gives it to the reporter. Later, that night, while Merry is walking her dog, her dog finds a dead body. Of course it is the reporter. But who would poison him? Read the book and find out.
This one is not available on Kindle Unlimited. Yet, it is well worth the price of the read. It’s a very cute mystery, full of Christmas spirit and lots of red herrings. I will be reading the rest of this series.
