BOOK: Christmas Cocoa Murder
AUTHOR: Carlene O’Connor
A mystery with a holiday setting! That’s what you can look forward to with this novel. The beginning starts out very intriguing...and includes a dunk tank of hot chocolate. Sound delicious? Not so fast. There really is murder in the air.
I thought the book was very creative for a mystery novel. Plus it is set in Ireland so it adds to some culture that I don’t know about (but should considering my heritage). I will say though that I spent a little bit of time looking things up because I wasn’t clear of terminology. But it is easily discernible.
If you like holiday mysteries, give this one a go!
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Siobhan O'Sullivan's hopes for a quiet Irish Christmas are dashed when the local Santa turns up dead in a carnival dunk tank of hot cocoa. Now instead of hunting down holiday gifts, she's pursuing a heartless killer. Seems the dead Santa was no angel either, stealing neighborhood dogs to guide his sleigh. But was it his holiday antics--or worse--that led to his death by chocolate?
I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
