Book Talks - Staff Picks: Mrs. Claus and the Santaland Slayings by Liz Ireland

Tuesday, November 28, 2023

Quirky, light and fluffy, this is not for the serious-minded; this Cozy Mystery is just the right read to get into the holiday spirit! Unlike most cozy mysteries, it requires the reader to suspend their hold on reality and believe in Santa Claus again! Talking reindeer, snowmen that can walk, and the royal family of the North Pole all make it difficult for April Claus, who dearly loves her new husband, Nick, to adjust to life in the North Pole. It's definitely not all sugar plums and candy canes, but it only gets worse when a cantankerous elf named Giblet Hollyberry is killed -- felled by a black widow spider in his stocking -- shortly after publicly arguing with Nick. Though Constable Crinkle deems this an accidental death, April isn't so sure. As she sets out to find the culprit, the meaning of Christmas will be on the line -- alongside her own hopes to stay off of a more lethal naughty list. Open seating; registration not required.
