Cami Brooks is busy gearing up for the holidays in her curio shop. Her helper Emmy is sick, leaving both Cami's shop and Pinky's attached coffee shop short handed at a busy time of year. Luckily, a nice young woman comes into the shop several times and Cami asks her to work for them in both shops. The girl seems to have a knack for displaying and selling snow globes. Cami is asked to run for an open seat on the city council. While trying to decide she stops by Mayor Frost's office to discuss it with him only to find him dead on the floor with the snow globe he bought from her that day broken beside him. This story had a bunch of layers, although I must say I figured out the main "secret" very early but, was still surprised with how all the layers fit together. I have enjoyed watching this group of characters develop and grow. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

Dollycas’s Thoughts Things are a bit frosty in town and not just the weather. Mayor Frost is not seeing eye to eye with the city council. Several approached him right in the Brew Ha Ha Coffee Shop to voice their displeasure. At least he wasn’t too upset to walk into Curio Finds to purchase an unusual snow globe and tell Cami to stop by his office later. When she gets there she is horrified to find him dead with his new snow globe the apparent murder weapon. I love so many things about this series, the setting is so unique and every time I read one I want to buy everyone on my Christmas list a snow globe, but can never find ones as special at those in Curio Finds. The characters continue to evolve in each story and I truly enjoyed this time as the circle of the 3 girlfriends is growing to be a circle of 6 friends. They are all fun and very engaging and realistically written. The author also keeps the series fresh by introducing new people that expand the suspect pool. A diverse group of tourists, local townspeople and one that is surrounded in mystery. This time I figured out early why the mayor was killed but there were so many twists and turns I was completed stumped as to who the actual killer could be. I felt a little smart that I was ahead of Cami in one aspect and felt a cozy rush as I tried to sleuth out the guilty party before she did, but I ended up being right there with her at the end. It was a complete surprise but still made absolute sense. Frosty The Dead Man is definitely by favorite book in the series. It is a wonderful winter read, set right before Christmas. Cozy lovers are sure to pleased!

Real mistletoe is something I have never seen, so this was an especially interesting book to read during the Christmas season. It was quite interesting to learn that it is much more than fake kissing ball inspiration via the chapter introductions in Mistletoe Man. This is my second China Bayles book and it is #9 in the series. Since I have read #2 first, I have decided I am not going to worry about order for this series. Mistletoe Man does a very good job of combining daily life, family and friends, health scares, a murder mystery, and the past in an entertaining read!

Let it snow globe, let it snow globe, let it snow globe! FROSTY THE DEAD MAN, the third installment in the Snow Globe Mysteries, once again has us in the world of Camryn Brooks, and her friend Pinky Nelson who own the connecting stores of Curio Finds and Brew-Ha-Ha. I am and have been in love with these shops since the first book. They are exactly the types of small businesses I love to visit. (Sadly, in our real word, these shops are having a hard time of it because of the big box stores, but at least I get to enjoy them in the fantastic world of cozy mysteries!) I also really enjoy that so much time is spent in the stores. In some stories, the protagonist is away from her business more than she is there. This is by far the best book in the series to date. I know I say that with a lot of the books I review, but having started many series from the very first book I can see where the author has grown and enriched their series. And that is very true here. Author Christine Husom has really taken this series and raised it up. In FROSTY THE DEAD MAN, there are more suspects than in the other books in the series, as well as more plot twists to keep readers guessing. Altogether an enjoyable tale, with an ending that took me by surprise, FROSTY THE DEAD MAN was a great addition to the Snow Globe Mystery series. Make sure to check out the back of the book for a fun and simple snow globe craft!

He jumped out of nowhere and laughed maniacally with the chainsaw in his hands.
