Book One
Jill Behe

Genre: romantic mystery, cozy mystery, women sleuth mystery
Publisher: DevilDog Press
Date of Publication: 12/15/15
Cover Artist: Dane@ebooklaunch

Book Description:

Welcome to Mossy Creek. We’re small and easy-going with a lot of community pride and camaraderie. What we don’t have a lot of is crime.

A close-knit laid-back little borough, so close to the southern border of Pennsylvania we’re almost in West Virginia. Townsfolk like to say: “We’re south enough to lend credence to our slight drawl, but sufficiently north of the Mason-Dixon to be ‘damn Yankees’.”

None of us were prepared for murder … especially involving a teenager.

My Review:  This was a really fun murder mystery that takes place in a small town, that you can’t help but love.  I loved the main character even though her grammar was over the top fantastic.  (Grammar is something I really should work on)  This book has a really cute plot and a cute chief of police and let me just say I can’t wait to see where that leads.

Simply put this is a fantastic, cute fun read.  It is pretty short so you can finish it quickly.  As far as the mystery goes it is well developed and will keep you guessing until the big reveal.  Such a fun book.

About the Author:

4

Jill is the eldest of four children born to Christian parents in East Central Pennsylvania. It took a while, but the rebel within finally broke free. After shocking family and friends by enlisting in the US Army, then marrying–not much of a shock–birthing three sons, and getting divorced–again not much of a shock–she’s now settling in, back in the great State of PA … until the next adventure.

Jill began writing nonsense stories for her siblings and friends while in grade school, probably from the time she learned cursive. Her writing has improved. (A good thing.) With time, maturity and persistence, she continues to hone her craft in a variety of genres … and at the urgent butt-kicking of her friends.

During the thirty-odd years she was ‘away from home,’ she never lost her love of creating prose. It was only a few years ago, she met another writer, and accepted an invitation to join a writing group. Not only did she make many new friends, she also learned more about the craft, and how to market her work.

Christmas in Cupid Falls by Holly Jacobs

21995032

Summary: Kennedy Anderson loves Cupid Falls, Pennsylvania. Ever since moving there as an orphaned teenager, she’s worked hard to carve out a place for herself in the tight-knit community. Now she’s mayor and owner of the town’s flower shop. But she also has a big secret…and nine months to figure out how to break the news to the father.

Lawyer Malcolm Carter has always been the golden boy of Cupid Falls—until he discovers the one night he spent with the girl-next-door turned out to have a lifetime of consequences. Now, the mother of his child wants nothing to do with him, and he’s gone from someone who is admired to persona non grata as the town rallies behind its mayor.

Malcom has always known what he wants. But now as Christmas approaches, he’ll have to discover a way to show Kennedy that she could find the only thing she’s ever really wanted—a true home—with him. Convincing her will take the help of Cupid Falls’ quirky residents…and a bit of holiday magic.

 

This was a very very cute Christmas story, I am not saying I am getting into the Christmas spirit or anything (I can be scroogy) but this book did give me the warm fuzzies.

I loved Malcolm and Kennedy, I felt their dynamic was very sweet and I am so glad with the way the story ended.

This is a cute book for anyone who is hoping for a little Christmas cheer that will give you the warm fuzzies.
