Description
In Rudolph, New York, it’s Christmastime all year long. But this December, while the snow-lined streets seem merry and bright, a murder is about to ruin everyone’s holiday cheer in the first Year-Round Christmas mystery. As the owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, Merry Wilkinson knows how to decorate homes for the holidays. That’s why she thinks her float in the semi-annual Santa Claus parade is a shoe-in for best in show. But when the tractor pulling Merry’s float is sabotaged, she has to face facts: there’s a Scrooge in Christmas Town. Merry isn’t ready to point fingers, especially with a journalist in town writing a puff piece about Rudolph’s Christmas spirit. But when she stumbles upon the reporter’s body on a late night dog walk—and police suspect he was poisoned by a gingerbread cookie crafted by her best friend, Vicky—Merry will have to put down the jingle bells and figure out who’s really been grinching about town, before Vicky ends up on Santa’s naughty list…

In Rudolph, New York, it’s Christmastime all year long. But this December, while the snow-lined streets seem merry and bright, a murder is about to ruin everyone’s holiday cheer in the first Year-Round Christmas mystery.
As the owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, Merry Wilkinson knows how to decorate homes for the holidays. That’s why she thinks her float in the semi-annual Santa Claus parade is a shoe-in for best in show. But when the tractor pulling Merry’s float is sabotaged, she has to face facts: there’s a Scrooge in Christmas Town.
Merry isn’t ready to point fingers, especially with a journalist in town writing a puff piece about Rudolph’s Christmas spirit. But when she stumbles upon the reporter’s body on a late night dog walk—and police suspect he was poisoned by a gingerbread cookie crafted by her best friend, Vicky—Merry will have to put down the jingle bells and figure out who’s really been grinching about town, before Vicky ends up on Santa’s naughty list…

        Delany (Under Cold Stone) launches a new series set in Rudolph, NY, a little Upstate town where it's Christmas year-round. Merry Wilkinson has returned home to open up a shop called Mrs. Claus's Treasures, which sells quality, artisan-crafted gifts. December is Rudolph's busiest season, but someone seems to be trying to sabotage the holiday for everyone. When Nigel Pearce, a journalist writing about "America's Christmas town," is found dead, the community is thrown into turmoil and potential ruin as tourists cancel reservations and avoid shopping there. With her best friend under suspicion and her livelihood at risk, Merry is determined to find the grinch who is destroying their Christmas. VERDICT A fun Yuletide-themed cozy with an appealing amateur sleuth.

        Rudolph, New York, hoping to be named America's Christmas Town, thereby increasing its already healthy number of tourists, offers a Santa Claus parade, a beautifully decorated downtown, and Midnight Madness days complete with Santa Claus and strolling carolers. The residents are thrilled when Nigel Pearce, from the prestigious European magazine World Journey, comes to town to write a piece about Rudolph. Unfortunately, Merry Wilkinson, proprietor of Mrs. Claus's Treasures, and her rambunctious Saint Bernard puppy find Nigel's body in a park. When it is learned that Nigel was poisoned by a gingerbread cookie from a local bakery, cancellations for the various holiday events come pouring in, putting local businesses in peril during their busiest season. To protect her hometown and her livelihood, Merry investigates and soon ties several acts of sabotage to the murder, all the while attracting the attention of two eligible men. This family-centered cozy, with its small-town holiday frame, quirky characters, humor, and sympathetic main character, is reminiscent of Donna Andrews' Meg Langslow series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
