Today I am reviewing “Candy Slain” book 6 in the Apple Orchard Cozy Mystery series by Chelsea Thomas.
Candy Slain by Chelsea Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“Killed by a Candy Cane”
That's the scariest headline ever written in the Pine Grove Gazette. But this holiday season, it's all too true...
This killer had a sweet tooth. So the December air is crisp and just a bit creepy this year.
Red-faced children throw snowballs. Elderly couples drink hot chocolate in the cold. Chelsea and Miss May speed through town in their VW Bus, hunting yet another killer.
Miss May is a sharp former lawyer, determined to make candy canes sweet again. Chelsea, Miss May’s Watson, just wants to solve the mystery without changing out of her fuzzy red Santa slippers.
Toss in Christmas tree drama, a missing Santa Claus, and buttery holiday cookies?
I continue to enjoy this cozy mystery series. I find them to be well written and very entertaining. The plot moves at a steady pace that keeps you engaged.
The characters are well-developed and we learn a little bit more about them each new book. Teeny always evokes a giggle or two, and I rarely laugh out loud so when I do you know I am enjoying the book.
I highly recommend this book/series. It can easily stand alone but I recommend you read the series from the beginning.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
