    Highly Recommend

    I just read this novella last night and enjoyed it a great deal. The characters are well written and a "real hoot." I have read all the Gertie Johnson books and Deb Baker's other books, including ones she has authored under the name "Hannah Reed." I highly recommend this author and all her books. You won't regret it!!!

    A Murder Mystery Laced with Humor

    I love this series! The main character, Gertie Johnson, relates the details of murder and mystery with her own unique observations that always amaze me, and make me giggle! I can't get enough of these stories. I would highly recommend reading the entire series starting with the first book. Not only are they murder mysteries, but also stories about good friends, love... and family members that have issues! This may be a Christmas story, but it's a great read anytime of the year! Can't wait for the next one!

    Not for me

    This self contained story is not badly written, but I did not like or care about any of the characters. That could just be me. I like cozy mysteries, but this didn't do it for me.
