    Unique plot I enjoyed the book Several different threads running Good length Looked like somebody proofread the first half No errors Sadly, the second half has a lot of them I guess this is the new normal for Kindle books I don t remember the last one I read that didn t have a bunch of errors So frustrating.

    This book is an excellent entry in the cozy mystery category.The characters could carry it alone, especially the minor characters The setting is in Midcoast Maine, home of the author, and very clearly painted There are a few editing errors and I felt the denouement dragged on too long with what felt like a lot of repetition perhaps it just was a lot of similar details Because of this the book is a little longer than it needs to be But the twists in the plot, occasional humor, and fascinating res [...]

    Start with a brutal murder on Christmas Eve, then fast forward a decade to a group of characters that didn t seem to fit, but were so interesting they kept me reading The characters stayed true all the way to the middle, and seemed to flounder a bit before the plot grabbed them and drove everything forward to a wonderfully surprising conclusion I give it 4 stars even though I still think the characters talked around the issue than needed, because I liked it anyway.

    Murder in MaineI enjoy a Christmas mystery and this was a good one The characters are real and the plot, while convoluted, is satisfying.


    Catherine Schramm

    Fun way to relax with Christmas reading.


    Brian Merrill

    Good read with a Christmas theme that takes place in coastal Maine, near where I grew up Well written and intriguing enough to keep my interest, even though this is not my usual genre.

    Loved it What a good read My favorite character was Ziggy Very unusual, but quirky too Will definitely be reading the rest of the series.
