Today I'm joining Berkley Mystery
in hosting authors
Lorraine Bartlett
and
Gayle Leeson
and their new release
YULE BE DEAD
Book 5 in the Victoria Square Mysteries


Like a lot of readers, I enjoy reading holiday themed books during the season they are set in (not a must, but fun) making YULE BE DEAD was of course a must.

I’ve missed the last two books in this series, so a few things have changed. But I had no problem catching up. It also helps that the author provides a character list at the beginning of the book. (More and more authors are doing that)

YULE BE DEAD was a good mystery and holds up to the others in the series. I didn’t guess who the killer was, but protagonist, Katie Bonner didn’t either, making me feel not so bad. There was a lot going on for Katie in this story. It’s no wonder she couldn’t figure it out. As for me, I couldn’t see clearly beyond the twists and turns. Also, the killer wasn’t made obvious to the reader.

Fans of this series are going to have a great time reading, YULE BE DEAD.

  3. Your review was very helpful, especially since this would be the first book in the series I read. Also, I won't feel too bad if I don't guess who the killer is also.
