LJ Reviews 2007 October #1

Three popular mystery authors each present a charming Christmas novella in this holiday volume. In Fluke's "Candy Cane Murder," bakery owner Hannah Swenson stumbles across a dead Santa Claus. Several holiday recipes are included. In Laura Levine's "The Danger of Candy Canes," freelance writer Jaine Austen helps a business acquaintance beat a murder rap while finding four suspects along the way. And Leslie Meier's homemaker sleuth Lucy Stone makes an appearance in "Candy Canes of Christmas Past," finding herself tangled in family secrets after an innocent yard sale find leads to much more than she bargained for. Expect demand from fans of these light and cozy mystery series.

PW Reviews 2007 August #4

Three big-name cozy writers contribute candy cane–themed novellas to this entertaining yuletide anthology. Levine's series heroine Jaine Austen (Death by Pantyhose , etc.) spots a wealthy suburbanite's killer in the unfortunately skimpy "The Danger of Candy Canes," where the subplot about a troubled teen is more compelling than the actual mystery. Hannah Swensen (Key Lime Pie Murder , etc.) experiments with new Christmas cookies (recipes included, of course) and gets to the bottom of a Santa slaying in Fluke's complex "Candy Cane Murder," which includes several plausible suspects and a surprising twist—an impressive feat in just 150 pages. Meier's powerful "Candy Canes of Christmas Past" takes heroine Lucy Stone (Bake Sale Murder , etc.) back to December 1983, when, newly arrived in Tinker's Cove, Maine, she found herself investigating the circumstances of a decades-old local death and struggling with her own financial and domestic difficulties. Fluke and Meier ably make up for Levine's shortcomings to create a sweet holiday treat for mystery lovers. (Oct.)
