All ten-year-old Alexandra Atwood wants for Christmas is to get her dad and the B&B’s cook Marquetta under the mistletoe. After all, how can they get married if they don’t kiss first?
When murder strikes in Seaside Cove, bed-and-breakfast owner Rick Atwood is asked to help find the killer. But this will not be an easy case to crack. Not only did the killer contaminate the crime scene, but there are suspects all over town. And they all received the same Christmas sweater from the victim.
Alex hears rumors about the murder and decides that since she’s on Christmas break, she has time for a little multitasking. She launches her own investigation even as she continues her efforts to get her dad and Marquetta together.
Just when Rick thinks he’s identified all the suspects, he discovers a new one—his estranged wife. With the days until Christmas ticking down, Rick feels pressured from all sides. He needs to solve the case. He needs to send his wife back to New York. But the one thing he doesn’t need is for his daughter to be one step ahead of him and the cops.
You’ve got to love a kid who knows what she wants, and Alex Atwood certainly does! She just wants the cook from her Dad’s bed & breakfast and her dad to get married. Plus she thinks she can solve a murder case over Christmas vacation – no wonder her dad Rick is acting stressed!
This was a great mystery, and Alex and her friends were a unique group of young sleuths. They actually seemed to act their age, which was nice and added some realism to the story.
I really got a holiday feeling reading this book. It was my first in the Seaside Bed & Breakfast mystery series, but I had no trouble figuring out what was going on or who was who – the author did a great job of giving you enough info so that you could jump right in at this point.
This was a sweet, feel-good mystery, so if you like your cozy mysteries extra cozy, you will love The Killer Christmas Sweater Club!
