Charlaine Harris's beloved series returns just in time for Christmas with this paperback re-issue.
Charlaine Harris's unique spin on the traditional cozy has garnered high praise and dedicated fans for her first two books set in Shakespeare, Arkansas. Harris has added a touch of noir to this typical charming Southern town and given a dark past to her heroine, cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard. The series debut, Shakespeare's Landlord, was named one of the top ten mysteries of 1996 by Mostly Murder, and Seventeen said of Shakespeare's Champion, "We love the heroine of this compelling mystery. . . . Lily is too cool."
In Shakespeare's Christmas, Lily goes home-always an uncomfortable scenario for the introverted Lily-for her sister's Christmas wedding. A four-year-old unsolved kidnapping resurfaces to push Lily to act once again as amateur sleuth to protect her sister-whose new husband is the widowed father of a girl bearing a remarkable resemblance to the vanished child.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I always love books by Charlene Harris, and Shakespeare’s Christmas was no exception. The characters are complex, but believable; and the stories move along at a good pace. The end of this book left me wanting more Shakespeare stories.
Sex every other page and way too many errors make it difficult to read.
