Mistletoe, Merriment and Murder by Sara Rosett

Ellie Avery's life is going smoothly.  She has a good job helping folks organize, a great family and a loving husband.  Then another organizer moves into town...

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It was published the first part of October, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Ellie gets pretty upset with Gabrielle.  Not because she set up shop in the same small town, but because she is sniping Ellie's established customers.  She decides to discuss it with her and let her know how she feels.  She never expected to find her dead on the floor in the room abutting the garage.  The fact that it was Gabrielle's sister, Jean, who was dead doesn't make it better.  Jean was wearing Gabrielle's clothes and Ellie had a fight with Gabrielle the night before at a party.  The cop knows she's murderer, she has cause and she was right there.  She even had blood on her shoe...

There is more than one mystery in this story.  This is set in a military town and everyone knows each other.  That's what makes murder surprising.  And Ellie wants to prove it WAS NOT her.  Trying to balance an extreme new job of organizing, hunt for the killer, and not lose all her business to her new competitor keeps Ellie busy.  But will she be able to prove the other party guilty?

If you'd like to read my ARC of this mystery, leave a comment here on my blog and email me at info at bookfaerie.com with your name and address and why you'd like to read it.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Happy reading.
