Mistletoe, Maine is oozing with Christmas cheer and certainly all is merry and bright until a man is discovered dead and Holly White’s friend, Caroline is the prime suspect. Sheriff Evan has to follow the clues and the clues are pointing to Caroline. Even though her friends and family are telling Holly to let the Sheriff do his job, Holly is determined to find the real killer so Caroline doesn’t celebrate Christmas in jail.

I liked it! I think this mystery has everything. A whimsical town, interesting, lovable characters, a mystery I didn’t solve and plenty of Christmas. It was fun, with a touch of creepy, and a little scary, funny at times and full to overflowing with holiday cheer. ***** 5 stars!
