Description:

Do you love Christmas and cozy mysteries? “Christmas is Murder” is a touching--and comical--seasonal cozy. It will have you wanting to stoke the fire and top up that glass of eggnog.
Albany’s the perfect image of a winter wonderland, and Sean and Sara’s friend Jimmy is going to be Santa Claus for the upcoming Christmas parade. The trees and decorations have been selected and the gifts have been purchased. The season has truly cast its magical spell--until Sean and Sara’s neighbors die in a horrible house fire.

While the fire department ruled holiday-related hazards as the cause, Sara suspects there’s more to it. Her determination to find the truth has her and Sean toeing the line between what’s legal and what’s not.

As they sort out fact from fiction, the McKinleys make the final decision about whether or not they should open a private investigation firm.

My Thoughts:

While Sara and Sean are out picking out Christmas trees with Sara's parents they meet their neighbors the Wilson's.  A nice elderly couple who Sara and Sean want to get to know better.  After getting home and setting up the tree, and bidding a farewell to Sara's parents they hear sirens and find their newly met neighbors house on fire.  The fire department is quick to rule the fire  a holiday related fire with the tree, but Sara wonders if something more sinister is happening?  Who killed the Wilsons?

This book is fabulous and definitely great for Christmas cozy lovers.  This one brings you closer with Sara's parents and more time with Adam their tech guy in NY.  They investigate which leads them to some questionable areas but with Sara and Sean they won't leave until they get their guy.  This book was no different and I think anyone who loves Christmas cozies will love this story!
