Still, she doesn't mind getting to know Sheriff Gray better. VERDICT Writing as Frost, Julie Chase (Cat Got Your Secrets) kicks off a lively and festive cozy series, introducing an appealing protagonist and charming Maine setting. Fans of Vicki Delany's "Year-Round Christmas Mystery" titles will enjoy.

        August 28, 2017
        Holly White, the heroine of Frost’s diverting series launch, retreats to the family home, a tree farm in Mistletoe, Maine, after her fiancé breaks off their engagement just two weeks before the Christmas Eve wedding they were planning. There she finds comfort—and the body of Margaret Fenwick, the town’s grouchy historic preservationist, in a sleigh. Since Margaret and Holly’s dad had a dispute over his vinyl fencing, he quickly becomes Sherriff Evan Gray’s number-one suspect. Holly sets out to exonerate her father by finding the real killer. Her inquiries lead her to some eccentric locals, any number of whom might have wanted Margaret out of the way. Will Holly and the sheriff manage to settle their differences and catch the killer before the killer catches up with her? The straightforward plot and the attractive, if not nuanced, characters will appeal to cozy fans. Writing as Julie Chase, Frost is the author of Cat Got Your Secrets and two other Kitty Couture mysteries. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
