About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Everybody loves Christmas … and mysteries. And now the two of them have been combined. We hope you’ll enjoy this fun little project revisiting the Christmas Cookies CD. — Joe Bonsall, The Oak Ridge Boys

Are you one of those people who knows that Christmas is fast approaching but you're still longing for a good read? Well, here's the answer to your dilemma! Christmas Cookies Mysteries is an anthology with 15 short stories that are inspired by The Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Cookies Album, and the contributing authors are some of the very best! The book begins with Hark the Herald Angels Sing by Patricia Bradley and ends with O Come All Ye Faithful by Mindy Steele, and the stories in between all revolve around small towns, Christmas traditions, murder and mayhem!

So, grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa, prop up your feet, and appreciate a brief respite from the hustle and bustle. I recommend Christmas Cookies Mysteries to all who enjoy mysteries but be prepared to also have music playing in your head, because most of the stories have the names of Christmas songs in their titles!

I received a copy of this book but was in no way obligated to post a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
