It’s Christmastime again in Christmas River. And all hell is breaking loose. Pie baker Cinnamon Peters has plenty on her plate this season. Between running her popular pie shop, planning her upcoming wedding to the town’s sheriff, and trying to lose weight to squeeze into her oh-so-perfect and oh-so-tight wedding dress, it’s all Cinnamon can do to keep her head on straight. But when Cinnamon’s cousin goes missing, and strange acts of violent vandalism start plaguing Christmas River, Cinnamon is quickly pulled into a shady world of danger that threatens to send her careening over the edge of sanity. Will Cinnamon make it to her wedding without losing her mind? Or will she get dragged down into madness? Madness in Christmas River is the third book in the Christmas River Cozy series, and is preceded by Murder in Christmas River and Mayhem in Christmas River.
Here is what I thought
Cinnamon Peters runs a pie shop and is getting hitched to the sheriff during the Christmas season. Not really a great time in a place called Christmas River where they really do up Christmas, then Daniel has to go back to California to help with a case.
While he was gone all sorts of things happen. Cinnamon’s cousin goes missing, her car gets vandalized and her dog hurt. Her ex is in town causing problems and it’s a lot for her to handle. She has to figure out what is going on before something worse happens.
I like Cinnamon and some of the regulars around Christmas River. Though it was short it still had a pretty good mystery. I was pretty sure I knew who might be in on things but I wasn’t sure why until it clicked at the end. 🙂
It’s a short cozy read/listen which is what I needed in between a couple of longer listens.
Randye Kaye does a great job with this series and has a nice voice to listen too. I think she does a pretty good job with the voices.
