It’s time for the Annual Moose Fest in Cape Willington featuring a Sleigh and Sled parade, an ice sculpting exhibition, and the Moose Fest Ball. Candy again is in the center of the action covering things for the local newspaper but her mind is filled with things Solomon Hatch has told her. He claims he saw a dead body in the woods behind her blueberry farm. As if that is not enough, a mysterious white moose is showing up in the strangest places. How do all of these things fit together? You can be sure Candy will figure it out.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
Life is never dull in the quaint seaside village of Cape Willington, Maine. The plot in this story really thickens and Candy is right in the thick of things. She is a very strong, savvy, smart protagonist. She has really grown in this series and I have grown to love her. But I am so jealous of her. We once took a vacation to Canada and the only moose we saw were on the moose crossing signs and Candy not only has a moose in her woods, but a white moose. We should have went to Maine!

The team of B.B. Haywood have written another captivating cozy sure to be enjoyed by all cozy lovers. These books are unique in that they all feature yearly events in Cape Willington. I hope they have many, many, more events planned to keep Candy busy for several stories. The title for the next book, Town in Pumpkin Bash already has my mouth watering and mind anxiously awaiting its release next year.

Very well written cozy about a newswoman who is the object of the mysterious attentions of a rare white moose. This leads Candy Holiday to inquire about the puzzling disappearance of the town recluse, a missing body and predictions by the town's fey psychic. All this takes place within the background of an winter festival complete with an ice sculpting contest. While the descriptions of the Maine town and surrounding countryside, adrift in snow, made me want to jump in my car and take a road trip, who the victim and the perpatrator were, was a little to obvious for me. I will probably try the next book in this series, hoping that there are more opportunities for twists and turns in a Halloween/Fall setting.

    Candy Holliday returns to solve another crime. Cape Willington¿s

    Candy Holliday returns to solve another crime. Cape Willington’s ice sculpting festival is underway and she’s happy to get to see the art unfold before her. But back at Blueberry Acres she’s startled when a local hermit stumbles out of the woods claiming to have found a dead body. She calls the police who find no sign of foul play, but she’s still unsettled, especially since she suspects one of the sculptors has gone missing despite the claims of his wife. When a body is found by a snowplow, Candy is unsure if they’ve stumbled on two murders or one. Could a rivalry between two ice sculptors have driven someone to murder? With the help of Maggie, Ben and a rare and mysterious white moose, Candy will have to sort out the details and avoid becoming a target herself.
    This installment of the Candy Holliday series changed everything. While the second book built upon the first in some ways, this third book would be impossible to follow without having read the first two, and it’s made clear that the fourth will be the same. I read the second book about a year and a half ago and I still had trouble following all the references to previous events, especially in the last few chapters which went by too fast. I’m still not sure I’ve grasped the whole finish. I love Haywood’s writing style, it’s believable and mature, staying away from the style of some other cozy authors that can cross the line into complete silliness at times. It’s one of the main reasons I love her series so much, but I’m not sure if making each book almost completely dependent on the last is going to serve her well. Ultimately, I still love the series and I admire the way that Haywood has tried to cope with the fact that a tiny town sees so many murders. I’ll keep coming back for more.
    The Real Mystery?
    If the author’s current strategy of an over-arching mystery driven by smaller “one-book” murders will keep enough readers like me hanging on for more.
