CHRISTMAS MITTEMS MURDER is an anthology comprised of three short stories by Lee Hollis, Lynn Cahoon, and Maddie Day. I’m happy to say that I enjoyed each story included in this holiday mystery collection.

My favorite of the bunch is Lee Hollis’s story, "Death of a Christmas Mitten Knitter." As a fan of the Hayley Powell Food and Cocktail series, I honestly cannot miss a story about her. Hayley is still one of my all-time favorite amateur sleuths and I loved her in this one too.

Lynn Cahoon’s contribution, "Two Christmas Mittens," was also fun and entertaining. Although I have read books by her before, this holiday-themed story made me consider going back and reading the other books in the series because I enjoyed it so much.

"Murderous Mittens" was my first read by Maddie Day, and I was interested to see how I would like this new-to-me author. I enjoyed it very much and will definitely consider trying out more of her books.

That’s why I love reading anthologies like CHRISTMAS MITTEMS MURDER--it’s a great way to discover new authors. Be sure to add this anthology to your wish list this holiday season. You won’t regret it!

Just in time for the holiday season, a new mystery collection featuring cozy mystery novellas by Lee Hollis, Lynn Cahoon, and Maddie Day!

The church’s annual Christmas bazaar is an unqualified success until the local jeweler cries out that a valuable diamond ring has been stolen. Food writer Hayley Powell joins the search for it but discovers something decidedly more shocking—the dead body of a local knitter with a homemade mitten stuffed in her mouth. With only days to spare before the holiday, Hayley must unravel the mystery of Bar Harbor’s crafty killer before someone else receives a deadly gift.

Magic Springs, Idaho, is decked out in its sparkling best for the season, but Mia Malone is almost too busy to notice. Taking a second job at the Lodge to save Mia’s Morsels doesn’t leave her much time for festivities—until she finds a dead body near one red mitten in the snow outside the Lodge during the holiday party. Learning that an ancient curse is at play, Mia must find the missing mitten and solve the murder before someone she loves is the next victim.

A quiet Christmas in Colinas, California, at her twin sister’s charming B&B is exactly what Cece Barton needs during the holiday hustle of Los Angeles. But the morning after a lovely evening at the local wine bar, Cece learns that the bar’s proprietor, who sells mittens in her spare time, has has been found dead, hit on the head with a bocce ball nestled in one of the mittens she sells as a sideline. With her horrified twin one of the main suspects, can Cece unmask the merry murderer before this becomes a holiday from hell?
