Book arrived today. I look forward to reading it. Love me some Christmas stories! Merry Christmas!

I chose to read this book because it met the criteria for Plum-Crazy's What to Read for October theme-Creepy Crawlies (ANT is embedded in the title). At first, I had a hard time getting into the book because it is the 4th book in a series and I felt like I was missing a lot. However, I really enjoyed it, once it got to the meat of the story. I especially liked the christian values. The mystery was good and I didn't figure out who done it ahead of time. I will most likely save this book for a December release.

Thank you, Southernfryed, for this book, one of three included in my US Secret Santa package. I love mysteries and look forward to reading this one.

I read this back in early December and intended to release it as part of the Christmas challenge, but we all know how life gets in the way!

This is the 4th (and currently last) in the Ivy Towers Mystery series. I hadn’t read the first three, but found this enjoyable on its own (though I would like to know more about Ivy’s character). I’ll keep an eye out for the earlier installments.

Late one night, a man in a Santa suit falls off the roof of the house Ivy shares with her husband, Amos. Santa is dead when he is found in the snow-covered yard. But what was he doing on their roof in the first place? They have no children and it’s not quite Christmas Eve yet anyway. And was it the fall that killed him?

This was a quick read that kept me turning the pages. There were many sympathetic characters and I enjoyed the descriptions of small-town life. So many cozies take place in small towns and I just love reading about people sharing meals, meeting for coffee, etc. There’s something so soothing about it. Hard to explain!

There is a distinct Christian thread in the book – the author’s website describes her work as “faith-filled” – but I don’t think it would be too intrusive for non-believers.

Thanks again for sharing this, Southernfryed!
