168. Murder With All the Trimming by Elaine Viets

About the book

Mystery shopper Josie Marcus doesn't get the appeal of the year-round Christmas shop. But when three such holiday houses pop up within two blocks, she's assigned to rate them anonymously.
Easy enough, Josie thinks, until she realizes that shoppers at one store are finding a strange-even deadly-secret ingredient in their holiday cake. And Josie must get to the bottom of it all before someone else becomes a Christmas spirit.

A very interesting installment. I enjoyed this one and I am already looking forward to the next one.

Thanks, Heidi. I'm glad you liked MURDER WITH ALL THE TRIMMINGS. The story is a little more complicated than some of my other Josie Marcus books, so I'm delighted you found it entertaining. Happy holidays.

How cool that Elaine Viets commented!

I love her Dead-End Job series and have read one in this series. I think I will have to read more of this series too. Good review!

Elaine -There was a lot going on and it kept me up way later than I should have been, but I was entertained. I can't wait to find out what Josie's next adventure will be. Actually, I love both of your series.

Kristie--I think you need to move the rest of them to the top of your reading pile
