The Happy Holidays Crime Collection by Jacqueline Vick Book Resume:

From Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day, laugh away your holiday stress with Frankie Chandler, pet psychic, the Harlow Brothers, the Wilder Women, and crime reporter Evan Miller as they negotiate social gatherings, local theater groups, and family traditions...with a serving of crime. Trouble with Turkeys Bowers and Frankie are finally dating, but they are about to hit their first real obstacle - Thanksgiving dinner. Can their new relationship stand up against a handsome farmer, a turkey infatuated with ducks, and the horror of candied yams? Not to mention a toy store riot and the mysterious happenings at the Good Morning Bakery. Only time will tell. Death of a Christmas Tradition One of the few things that brothers Edward and Nicholas Harlow agree on is a traditional Christmas celebration. When Edward decides to scrap conventions in favor of current fashions including a pre-decorated spruce, his decision sets off a series of mishaps that begin with the theft of his tree. As Nicholas and Edward attempt to track down the thief, they maneuver obstacles including naughty elves, angry toddlers, and flying bullets. Is the tree worth it? The person they’re after considers murder a small price to pay. Kitty Christmas Caper It’s Frankie Chandler’s first Christmas away from family, and she may not survive the season. Her normally perky best friend, Penny, is suffering from a case of Scrooge, her low finances have her considering IOUs as gifts, and now she’s stuck with an abandoned kitten that’s creating havoc in her home. When she resorts to reading the kitty’s mind to locate its family, she overhears what may be a clue to a horrible crime. The answer lies in the abandoned tunnels under the community theater where her biggest obstacle may be the Ghost of Christmas Present. Rubies for Christmas When Roxanne Wilder is snowed in at the parish hall with the holiday decorating committee, she knows it’s going to be a long night waiting for help to arrive. That’s because the committee includes her mother, her aunts, and their arch enemy, Annie Rumbottom. All the ladies feign politeness until Annie’s expensive ruby ring goes missing. The gloves come off and suggestions range from the third degree to body cavity searches. Who would steal the precious jewel? The dedicated volunteer who’s short on cash? The young woman who wishes she’d never heard of the decorating committee? Or could Roxanne’s crazy Aunt Mabel have tucked the gem into her cleavage along with her tissues and cough drops? Murder at Friendly Farm When reclusive crime reporter Evan Miller is coerced into purchasing a live tree for Christmas, he doesn't expect to enjoy the experience. How right he is. The quaint Friendly Farm of his childhood has become a marketing extravaganza, his current crush is romancing a studly farmhand, and he inadvertently catches the attention of the local mafioso. Then Evan discovers the body of Santa Claus hidden in the corn maze. The only way to bring this night to a close is to find out who killed the jolly fat man without becoming the next victim. Collared When Bowers takes Frankie to the La Hacienda Chop House for the steak of her dreams, they both look forward to a romantic dinner at the exclusive restaurant. Before the plates hit the table, a man with a guide dog holds up the restaurant patrons, and when she tunes in to the German Shepherd, the canine is sending dangerous signals. Will the couple’s first Valentine’s dinner together be their last?

When it comes to Christmas stories, one typically thinks of those that embody the spirit of the season, such as Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. The Yuletide-themed murder mystery is not usually the first thing that comes to mind. A classic country-house murder mystery, The Santa Klaus Murder begins with Aunt Mildred declaring that no good could come of the Melbury family Christmas gathering at their country residence Flaxmere. So when Sir Osmond Melbury, the family patriarch, is discovered--by a guest dressed as Santa Klaus--with a bullet in his head on Christmas Day, the festivities are plunged into chaos. Nearly every member of the party stands to reap some sort of benefit from Sir Osmond's death, but Santa Klaus, the one person who seems to have every opportunity to fire the shot, has no apparent motive. Various members of the family have their private suspicions about the identity of the murderer, but in the midst of mistrust, suspicion, and hatred, it emerges that there was not one Santa Klaus but two.

Ho-Ho-Homicide by Kaitlyn Dunnett Book Resume:

This “enjoyable” Maine-set mystery “skillfully uses misdirection to keep the reader guessing to the end” (Publishers Weekly). Business is booming at the Scottish Emporium in Moosetookalook, Maine, and Liss MacCrimmon Ruskin couldn’t be happier—or busier. A romantic getaway at a rustic Christmas tree farm is just what she needs. But the property’s mysterious past has her feeling less than merry . . . Liss is surprised when an old friend asks her to spend a week at the Christmas tree farm she just inherited. Realizing it’s a perfect chance for her and her husband, Dan, to get away, Liss happily accepts and packs her bags for the tiny town of New Boston. Upon their arrival, they’re greeted by a ramshackle farmhouse and unfriendly townsfolk. It’s hardly the idyllic vacation locale they hoped for, especially when needling neighbors raise questions about the farm’s dark history. Who was the man whose body was found neatly netted in a shipment of Scotch pine? Why did the owner vanish into thin air? And why are the trees growing so close together, forming a maze more twisted than a Celtic knot? The rumors pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard, and something even more scandalous than murder hides beneath the town's humdrum façade. When a series of “accidents” strikes the farm, she’ll have to spring into action faster than a Highland Fling to find the killer lurking among the pines—before she ends up in a pine box herself . . . “An enjoyable small-town Christmas cozy.” —Library Journal “Fans of Carolyn Hart’s Death on Demand series will enjoy this.” —Booklist

Homicide by David Simon Book Resume:

From the creator of HBO's The Wire, the classic book about homicide investigation that became the basis for the hit television show The scene is Baltimore. Twice every three days another citizen is shot, stabbed, or bludgeoned to death. At the center of this hurricane of crime is the city's homicide unit, a small brotherhood of hard men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world. David Simon was the first reporter ever to gain unlimited access to a homicide unit, and this electrifying book tells the true story of a year on the violent streets of an American city. The narrative follows Donald Worden, a veteran investigator; Harry Edgerton, a black detective in a mostly white unit; and Tom Pellegrini, an earnest rookie who takes on the year's most difficult case, the brutal rape and murder of an eleven-year-old girl. Originally published fifteen years ago, Homicide became the basis for the acclaimed television show of the same name. This new edition—which includes a new introduction, an afterword, and photographs—revives this classic, riveting tale about the men who work on the dark side of the American experience.

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “My favorite kind of whodunit, kept me guessing all the way through, and reminiscent of Agatha Christie at her best -- with an extra dose of acid.” -- Alex Michaelides, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Silent Patient Everyone's invited...everyone's a suspect... During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they’ve chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands—the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves. The trip begins innocently enough: admiring the stunning if foreboding scenery, champagne in front of a crackling fire, and reminiscences about the past. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group’s tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year’s Eve, the cord holding them together snaps, just as a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world. Two days later, on New Year’s Day, one of them is dead. . . and another of them did it. Keep your friends close, the old adage says. But how close is too close? DON'T BE LEFT OUT. JOIN THE PARTY NOW.

Winter of Frozen Dreams by Karl Harter Book Resume:

The true story of Barbara Hoffman is a tale of money, men, and the Madison, Wisconsin, massage parlor where a biochemistry major turned into a murderer. On a freezing Christmas morning, a distraught young man named Gerald Davies led Madison police to Tomahawk Ridge, where they found the body of Harold Berge, naked, bloody, and beaten. Davies insisted that he hadn’t killed the man, but that he and his fiancée had simply buried the corpse in a snowbank. The investigation confirmed that the victim had died in the apartment of Barbara Hoffman—a young woman who had dropped out of the University of Wisconsin and had worked at Jan’s Health Studio, a local massage parlor. She and Davies, whom she met at Jan’s, had recently become engaged. The circumstances were suspicious already. But when the police discovered that Berge was Hoffman’s ex-lover, that he had signed over his house and an insurance policy to her—and that Davies had also made her his beneficiary—they began to suspect that Davies might also be in danger . . . The police kept him under watch, but eventually had to stop surveillance. Soon after, Davies turned up dead in his bathtub, a Valium bottle nearby, in an apparent suicide. But, an accomplished student of chemistry, Hoffman knew how tricky it could be to detect cyanide poisoning. It would take a dedicated effort by detectives to sort out the truth about the highly intelligent masseuse, her work in the shadowy local sex trade, and the real circumstances that led two of her clients to their deaths. Winter of Frozen Dreams is the full story of the case that would become a sensational televised trial and inspire a film of the same name starring Thora Birch. It’s a “snappy read” by an author with a “talent for sleuthy description and psychological insight” (Kirkus Reviews).

“The blend of romance and cozy mystery will please lovers of all things Scottish.” —Kirkus ‘Tis the season to be jolly, but in Moosetookalook, Maine, Christmas cheer is in short supply due to a snowless winter that’s keeping skiers and shoppers at a distance. Fortunately, Liss MacCrimmon of the Scottish Emporium has a plan . . . Liss’s brainstorm focuses on Tiny Teddies, the hot new toy of the season. Every store across the country is out of stock—except a few wee establishments in good ol’ Moosetookalook. The first sign of something amiss occurs when the last Tiny Teddy is summarily executed: shot through the heart in the display window of greedy toy store owner Gavin Thorne. But the Teddy’s demise is just a precursor to the eerily similar murder of Gavin himself. Now, with the Twelve (or, in Scots terms, the Daft) Days of Christmas rapidly approaching, Liss has a plate full of things worse than haggis to contend with, starting with a stockroom packed with poultry (don’t ask), and ending with a killer who’d like to see Liss’s goose well and fully cooked . . . “A picturesque location, a bit of romance, some suspense, and a cast of appealingly quirky characters.” —Booklist “Lively . . .

A Death in the Lucky Holiday Hotel by Pin Ho,Wenguang Huang Book Resume:

The downfall of Bo Xilai in China was more than a darkly thrilling mystery. It revealed a cataclysmic internal power struggle between Communist Party factions, one that reached all the way to China's new president Xi Jinping. The scandalous story of the corruption of the Bo Xilai family—the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood; Bo's secret lovers; the secret maneuverings of Bo's supporters; the hasty trial and sentencing of Gu Kailai, Bo's wife—was just the first rumble of a seismic power struggle that continues to rock the very foundation of China's all-powerful Communist Party. By the time it is over, the machinations in Beijing and throughout the country that began with Bo's fall could affect China's economic development and disrupt the world's political and economic order. Pin Ho and Wenguang Huang have pieced together the details of this fascinating political drama from firsthand reporting and an unrivaled array of sources, some very high in the Chinese government. This was the first scandal in China to play out in the international media—details were leaked, sometimes invented, to non-Chinese news outlets as part of the power plays that rippled through the government. The attempt to manipulate the Western media, especially, was a fundamental dimension to the story, and one that affected some of the early reporting. A Death in the Lucky Holiday Hotel returns to the scene of the crime and shows not only what happened in Room 1605 but how the threat of the story was every bit as important in the life and death struggle for power that followed. It touched celebrities and billionaires and redrew the cast of the new leadership of the Communist Party. The ghost of Neil Heywood haunts China to this day.

New York Times bestseller “Swanson rips us from one startling plot twist to the next… A true tour de force.” —Lisa Gardner “[A] multilayered mystery that brims with duplicity, betrayal and revenge.” —USA Today From the hugely talented author of The Kind Worth Killing comes a chilling tale of psychological suspense and an homage to the thriller genre tailor-made for fans: the story of a bookseller who finds himself at the center of an FBI investigation because a very clever killer has started using his list of fiction’s most ingenious murders. Years ago, bookseller and mystery aficionado Malcolm Kershaw compiled a list of the genre’s most unsolvable murders, those that are almost impossible to crack—which he titled “Eight Perfect Murders”—chosen from among the best of the best including Agatha Christie’s A. B. C. Murders, Patricia Highsmith’s Strangers on a Train, Ira Levin’s Deathtrap, A. A. Milne's The Red House Mystery, Anthony Berkeley Cox's Malice Aforethought, James M. Cain's Double Indemnity, John D. MacDonald's The Drowner, and Donna Tartt's The Secret History. But no one is more surprised than Mal, now the owner of the Old Devils Bookstore in Boston, when an FBI agent comes knocking on his door one snowy day in February. She’s looking for information about a series of unsolved murders that look eerily similar to the killings on Mal’s old list. And the FBI agent isn’t the only one interested in this bookseller who spends almost every night at home reading. The killer is out there, watching his every move—a diabolical threat who knows way too much about Mal’s personal history, especially the secrets he’s never told anyone, even his recently deceased wife. To protect himself, Mal begins looking into possible suspects . . . and sees a killer in everyone around him. But Mal doesn’t count on the investigation leaving a trail of death in its wake. Suddenly, a series of shocking twists leaves more victims dead—and the noose around Mal’s neck grows so tight he might never escape.

If only she stuck to guest services....Before the Rivera visit to the Four Acorns Inn ends, not only will a killer be sent packing, everyone will learn two things: the shocking reason for the bitter divorce of "The Spitball King" and the "Queen of Clean", and how the granddaughter of a Red Sox assistant coach came to be named after a famous Yankee center fielder.
