A free collection of 13 stories by various authors with a few of the stories only shown in this edition. It may be the Holidays but murder doesn't take a vacation. Stories that also contain family, humor, romance, and love mixed with the angst, pathos, and deceit. A descriptive love scene or two, some adult situations, but no out of bounds language for the most part. Information on the authors and other books and stories for each author are also shown.

I just finished reading Happy Homicide: Thirteen Cozy Mysteries for the Holidays. It contains some delightful cozy mysteries by Camille Minichino, Nancy Warren, Jenna Bennett, Sara Rosett, Neil Pakcy, Joanna Campbell Slan (the first and last story are by this author), Lois Winston, Annie Adams, Nancy Jill Thames, Linda Gordon Hengerer, Teresa Trent, and Joyce and Jim Lavene. I liked this book because it gave me a chance to check out some series that I have not read before and revisit some series that I enjoy. I like the story by Camille Minichino because it is a prequel to The Periodic Table series. One of the first series I have read in the cozy mystery genre was The Periodic Table series. All the stories in the book are easy to read and enjoyable. The common theme throughout the books is that they all take place during the holiday season. If you like to read cozy mysteries, then you will enjoy these delightful short stories. I give Happy Homicide 4 out of 5 stars. I received a complimentary copy of Happy Homicide from Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.

Happy Homicide contains 13 short stories of murder, mayhem, mystery and romance all connected by a Christmas holiday theme. These stories are penned by some of my favorite cozy mystery authors including: Joyce and Jim Lavene; Joanna Campbell Slan with Kiki Lowenstein and another for Cara Mia Delgatto; Jenna Bennett with a dilemma for Savanna Martin; Teresa Trent and her Pecan Bayou characters; Nancy Jill Thames with another Teddy the dog tale; and seven other delightful stories. If you are looking to get into a holiday mood, then try this anthology…there is sure to be at least one entry that will delight you and you may even find a Christmas miracle or two. Finally, this anthology also provides recipes and crafts to really help get you in the holiday spirit. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Thirteen stories for the holidays. How great is that! Some of my favorite authors contributed to this anthology along with some new ones for me. Each story, though not a full length novel, was so well written it felt complete. That shows the talent of these authors, giving you a beginning, middle, and end, in a limited amount of words. Spend the holidays meeting new characters, falling in love, and solving some murders. Each new story brings that feeling of wonder. You are entering a new world, going on a new adventure. After I finished one story, I couldn’t resist starting the next one. And so it went until I finished them all. With weather cooling down, these stories would be great companions while curled up with a snug blanket and a hot cuppa tea.

Wonderful stories by a superb group of authors, you cannot go wrong with HAPPY HOMICIDES. It’s a must have collection for every mystery reader. With the variety of impressive authors participating in this anthology, I knew this was going to be a spectacular book, and it was! There are stories by many favorite authors of mine. Authors that when I see their names, I know I am in for a reading treat. And then there were so new to me authors who now have a new fan in me! The short story format of each individual offering did nothing to lessen the mystery, fun, or integrity of each story. Each author did incredible work with the word count I’m sure they had to be considerate of. In fact, they were so well done, it felt like reading thirteen full length novels in one sitting. HAPPY HOMICIDES is just proof of the talent each author in this ensemble. It’s my extreme hope that there will be a second volume from these great names! Note: When you purchase this book, you are given a wonderful opportunity to download a free book!

Happy Homicides is like a holiday sampler platter – every morsel is delicious, and when you are finished you want the full menu! I enjoy anthologies. The stories are shorter so I can read them on the go, and I get in-between glimpses about familiar characters from my favorite authors, as well as discovering new authors who are probably similar to ones I already like. This collection was one of the best I have read and includes stories by Joanna Campbell Slan, Neil Pakcy, Lois Winston, Annie Adams, Jenna Bennett, Nancy Jill Thames, Sara Rosett, Camille Minichino, Nancy Warren, Linda Gordon Hengerer, Joyce and Jim Lavene, and Teresa Trent. The stories are all holiday themed, but that is where the similarity ends. It’s a diverse set: we get dogs and cats and children of course, and some murder sprinkled in. We go to familiar settings like tea shops and craft stores and recipe competitions, but also take a fun trip to a trailer park. We meet sisters and aunts who are wonderful family, but there are some husbands who are not so wonderful and some scary strangers. One of the stories is very down home, while another is almost scientific, and Jane Austen makes an appearance in one story. I did have a couple of favorite stories, but I enjoyed each and every one of them, and ended up purchasing several books by new-to-me contributing authors because I enjoyed their Happy Homicide so much. It was a great way to start getting into the holiday spirit. This is a must read. It’s well written, quick to read, and very entertaining. And . . . there are recipes and crafts! I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
