It’s the Christmas season in Copper Bluff, South Dakota! Students and Professors alike are working hard to wrap things up for the holiday break. A visiting quartet, Jazz Underground, is staying at the Candlelight Inn Bed and Breakfast. One of the band members dies after Professor Prather pushes him and he’s unexpectedly lying on the floor. The Professor is now a person of interest in the death of this man and she must clear her name or she could end up spending Christmas in jail. Not somewhere I would want to be during the holiday season.
Loved it! This is the third book in the Professor Prather Mystery series and I think it’s the best one yet. I personally think, the author is getting better and better at writing these mysteries.
I felt like decorating for Christmas, going to a Christmas performance and baking Christmas cookies while I was reading this book. Christmas wasn’t gaudy or over done. The entire story was well written. I appreciated the references to Agatha Christie and Shakespeare peppered throughout the story. Good mystery. I didn’t solve it! 5 ***** stars!
