Everything starts out so so for Zoe. She has to dress up as Santa for the Santa booth at the annual Christmas festival because Levi is MIA. She eventually gets settled after the suit she is wearing is stuffed with pillows to make her look the part. She begins to have little ones hop on her lap and start asking for Christmas wishes. One wish she hears brings tears to her eyes. She is determined to make this and others wishes come true.
Everything changes in an instant, one minute she is leaving the festival and the next she wakes up in the hospital as a possible suspect in a murder that she can't remember. What a way to start Zak and Zoe's first Christmas married. Yikes! Zoe is now on a mission to find the killer and spend Christmas with her family at home and not from a cell.
Make sure you hold on tight for this wild adventure. There are tons of twists and turns, suspects, secrets, special deliveries, and of course mystery to be had in this latest Zak and Zoe adventure. I loved it and can't wait till the next.
It's Christmas in Ashton Falls and the entire Zimmerman household is gearing up for their first Christmas as a newly formed family unit. While Zak is busy decking the halls, Zoe is busy tracking down a killer while still taking the time to make certain a little girl’s Christmas wish comes true. It's funny, it's family, it's a Zak and Zoe Christmas. (Goodreads)
As usual when reading a Kathi Daley book, Santa Sleuth has everything I look for in a cozy mystery. There is romance, mystery, friendship and the small town atmosphere that the author is so talented in creating.
The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional. Zoe has a personal interest in solving this murder because the murderer left her inside Ellie’s burning restaurant to fry. Even with all the Christmas preparations happening, Zoe finds time to investigate the murder and search for the culprit. There is a lot of changes happening with Zoe’s friends and I cannot wait to see what will happen in their lives.
The mystery is carried on throughout the book and there are a lot of suspects to consider. With numerous twists and turns, the identity of the murderer is hard to figure out, which is a good thing.
I thought this book had more humor than normal and I found myself laughing a lot while reading the book. For me, there was a jaw dropping moment at the beginning of the second chapter, something I was not expecting. There was also a lot of heartfelt moments, some that were sad and some that were happy. I really enjoy when an author takes me on an emotional rollercoaster while I’m reading.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. My suggestion would be to read the entire Zoe Donovan Mystery series, if you have not done so yet. And then read the other series that this author has written, because they are all good and definitely worth reading.
The latest edition finds a twist at the beginning with our heroine, Zoe, in the hospital with little memory of the events that led to the murder of a local, Jason, and the fire where she was present but can't remember who killed Jason and how the fire began. With Christmas coming quickly and all of the family events and preparations, she still must find the truth behind the fire and murder. Did she kill Jason in defense of herself and Jason's former girlfriend? How did the fire start that destroyed her best friend's restaurant? There are so many suspects and so little time to solve before Christmas, can she solve this mystery?
The book includes warm thoughts of Christmas traditions and decorations that all of us can relate to and love being reminded of the special family times in our life.
I highly recommend you join the fans of this author and find yourself anxiously awaiting each new book to appear on the shelf!
