Thank you, Joanne for the review! http://www.newandusedbooks.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=this_review&ID=12815
When snow globe store owner Camryn Brooks finds Mayor Lewis “Frosty” Frost dead in his office, the list of people who might have motive is longer than Santa’s Naughty List!
Was his death because he was encouraging a microbrewery to open in the charming town of Brooks Landing, Minnesota? Or is it because he pushed for a manufacturing plant to be built on 90 acres of farmland? Or perhaps the Mayor had some mighty dangerous skeletons in his closet? Camryn, who seems to make a career out of always ending up in the wrong place and the wrong time, joins with her best friend Pinkie, owner of the Brew Ha-Ha, to look into who used one of Cami’s snow globes to bash his head in.
Frosty the Dead Man is the third book in the Snow Globe mystery series, which features Cami Brooks who has returned home after a scandal in Washington DC derailed a promising career. At first, it felt like Cami was slinking back to her hometown where her family and high school friends still lived, but she has realized that she missed her roots, and she felt more grounded and peaceful in Brooks Landing than she had in DC. It was peaceful, well, except for those pesky murder victims she always seems to find.
Author Husom keeps the story moving with interesting recurring characters and intriguing suspects who pop in and out with regularity. And there’s even a bit of a romance which progresses—albeit slowly—in each book. Though it has a Christmas timeframe, don’t let that stop you from enjoying Frosty the Dead Man in any season!
