The Iced Princess Review by MJB Reviewers

Posted by christinehusom on March 10, 2017 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)



The characters are well developed and well rounded. I enjoyed reading about the relationship between Cami and Pinky. They are good friends and they would do almost anything for each other. I like reading about their conversations and fun antics and they felt like realistic characters to me. I liked the mix of old characters from the previous book and new characters that we meet for this book. The secondary characters added a lot to the story.

Many thanks for the review, Omar! http/


Frosty the Dead Man is the third book in this fun cozy mystery series. I had a hard time when I first heard of this series envisioning a store that sold snow globes. Well, author Christine Husom not only pulled it off, but this installment is the best yet. What a quaint and enjoyable town Brooks Landing is and I for one, ...

Thanks so much for the review, Jennifer!

Review (4.5 Stars): Frosty the Dead Man is the third book in the Snow Globe Shop series and I have to say that this is a winner. Cami is enjoying the success of the store when Mayor Lewis Frost approaches her about taking a seat on the council. Not sure what to do, Cami visits Mayor Frost after hours to discuss things and finds his dead body with one o...

Frosty the Dead Man


In creating Frosty The Dead Man, the first thing I came up with was the title, not my standard operating procedure. For the series proposal, I needed to come up with the synopses for three books. I already had the firs...

Writing Book Reviews: Purpose and Tips

Posted by christinehusom on January 21, 2017 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Book reviews should be helpful to both reader and author alike, written as objectively as possible. A good rule of thumb is to highlight what the author did well employing the basic elements of story...

What is Christine Husom reading? From Campaign for the American Reader blog

Posted by christinehusom on January 17, 2017 at 6:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I have stacks and stacks of to-be-read books on my shelves, and each one seems to cry out, “Pick me, it’s my turn,” when I’m perusing through them. I discovered Up Like Thunder by Colin T Nelson was a treat to read. I first met Colin at a Twin Cities Sisters in Crime some years ago. Besides being a wonderful storyteller, he’s also a great guy, all around.


Up Like Thunder follows Investigator Pete Chandler from Minneapolis to Myanmar, the former...
