This week, I'm featuring Death of a Neighborhood Scrooge by Laura Levine.
Yes, it's a Christmas entry in the long running Jaine Austen comedic mystery series. I saved it for December, and it was worth the wait! This has long been a favorite series.
Here's how it begins:
I blame Connie Van Hooten for everything. If she hadn't packed up her staff and gone yachting in the Mediterranean, I would've never spent that cursed Christmas as a murder suspect.
Page 56 features part of an e-mail from Jaine's father:
I've got to look at the bright side. The clattering false teeth I ordered for Lydia Pinkus's Secret Santa gift are tucked away safe in my suitcase.
As a fan of the series, I was already laughing just imaging this since Jaine's dad has a one sided rivalry going with Lydia.
Honestly, the entire book was great. I'll have my full review up on Monday, so I hope you'll come back then.
