I know what you’re thinking. The holidays are over - but not at Mermaid Bay’s absolutely adorable year-round Christmas Shoppe! Who doesn’t buy a holiday ornament while on vacation? I think I could fill two trees with destination ornaments, so this memorable series grabbed my attention right away, especially when I read about secondary character Peppermint Patti. Score!

Rest easy dear reader, mystery author Heather Weidner isn’t writing about Saint Nick in January, in her second Mermaid Bay Christmas Shoppe Mystery, TWINKLE TWINKLE AU REVOIR she’s celebrating another special holiday with St. Valentine! Cozy authors know all about the best meet cutes in fiction, they just like to do it with towns, pets, secondary characters, and if there’s a love interest involved you’re sure to get a heartwarming introduction there too – Nick - Weidner’s buff sheriff version of the saint who likes to deliver gifts of justice all year round.

With her love theme set from page one, Ms. Weidner takes readers on a delightful trip through Mermaid Bay which looks the same as it did in the 1950s - the perfect setting for the Love Channel’s television production of My Coastal Valentine.

Are you in love yet? I am! If readers still need a little incentive, Chloe the French bulldog will wrap them around her little paw and Neville the Devil cat will swipe their hearts. The town will welcomes everyone with warmth and charm that allows readers to escape the bitter cold - beachside weather here I come!

When a large cast of guest characters take over Mermaid Bay with the television show, the public and paparazzi are mad to get close to the high maintenance stars. It would be easy to get lost in the crowd of characters vying for the lead role of murderer, but Ms. Weidner weeds through cast of red herrings with ease. Not an easy task with such a large crew!

No one’s particularly mourning over the victim, a slippery member of the press found in a star’s room at the town’s B & B, the Pearl, with an antique letter opener sticking out of his neck. But is that really the cause of his death, or is the set being staged to entice the public’s need for a juicy story?

Our heroine Jade Hicks and everyone else in town will do what it takes to find the killer and save the reputation of the Pearl and Mermaid Bay before another victim is taken to the morgue. The stars, however are battling for headlines and Mermaid Bay quickly becomes overrun with more media covering a spree of crimes. In the mix, there is one local reporter readers will love, Nosey Nell the hapless sleuth who is always looking for the inside scoop to put Mermaid Bay on the map and her newspaper in the hands of more than just coupon cutting tourists.

Cozy mystery lovers will thoroughly enjoy TWINKLE TWINKLE AU REVOIR Mermaid Bay Christmas Shop Mystery #2 and will place this entertaining series at the top of their gift list year-round! Ms. Weidner rewards readers with the bonus gift of a special recipe from Peppermint Patti they’ll be dying to try!
