by Joanne Fluke, Laura Levine, and Leslie Meier
Candy canes take center stage in this collection of three holiday mysteries:
•Fluke's Hannah Swensen follows a trail of candy canes to the dead body of a rich business owner playing Santa,
•Laura Levine has Jaine Austen investigating the case of deadly candy cane roof decorations, and
•Finally, Lucy Stone recalls her first Christmas in Tinker's Cove and the unsolved murder of a judge's wife.
Reading this collection along with Gingerbread Cookie Murder was interesting. I definitely liked the Fluke and Levine gingerbread stories more than the candy cane stories. However, Meier's story in this collection is far better than her gingerbread story.
Again, it was just fun to read some Christmas stories during the holiday season.
