Описание

Eggnog Murder: When a gift-wrapped bottle of eggnog proves to be a killer concoction for a Tinker’s Cove local, all Lucy Stone wants for Christmas is to find the murdering mixologist who’s stirring up trouble. Death By Eggnog: Food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell has never cared much for Bar Harbor’s grouchy town librarian, Agatha Farnsworth. But after the Scroogy senior has a fatal—and suspicious—allergic reaction to supposedly non-dairy eggnog, it’s up to Hayley to ladle out some justice. Nogged Off: Julia Snowden’s tenant Imogen Geinkes seems to be jinxed. Her poorly named “Killer Eggnog” gives all her co-workers food poisoning at the holiday party. Now Julia has to get moving to catch the cold-hearted culprit.

    Eggnog Murder by Leslie MeierThis is a collection fo stories from different authors with the same theme: eggnog murders..Eggnog Murder by Leslie NeierThis story starts out with Lucy and her family that live and work in Tinker's Cove, Maine. I have read many in the series and enjoy them as they are not very graphic.This one has a lot to offer as it's Christmastime in the small village and things are happening.The community has a lot going on some to raise money for the charities the community donates to.Love hearing all about the events and especially the charities. Lucy is feature reporter for the local paper and she helps to solve the murders in town.Red bear santa club sounds like a good cause as they raise a lot of money. There are a few deaths and with Elizabeth coming home from Paris and the house already full it's going to be a challenge to get through it all.Love hearing about the LBD and how it can be enhanced. Hope the story about PTSD gets written and things happen that can aid others.Amazing who the culcprit was in this story as it points to many along the way..Death by Eggnog by Lee HollisFirst time reading this author so playing a bit of catch up with the characters.Hayley works at the Island Times and she gets along with a crime reporter Bruce but they don't mesh all the time.The town is having their annual restuarnt dinner where everyone brings their establishments best treats to sample. Some are allergic to nuts and some to dairy.Nobody gets along with the 80 librarian but none wanted her dead either. Amazing that we have been to this town in Maine-Bar Harbor and enjoyed other places nearby: Jordan's Pond, Mount Desert, etc. Awesome place to find nature, outside and peace.Lot of characters but easy to keep track of who is who and does what for a living. Has recipes.Love how Hayley helps solve the mystery of who the murderer was. She does talk to a lot of others in town and asks a lot of questions..Nogged Off by Barbara RossFirst time reading this author and enjoyed the book. This one starts out with Julia and she's on her way from Maine to NY to close out her apartment that she sublet and will sell to her in a weeks time. Problem is when she arrives things don't go according to plan.After they arrive back in Maine with the furniture and other belongings things go haywire and the truck and it's contents are stolen. Love haring of the town and especially the events that take place annually-what a treat!Julia takes it upon herself to help solve the mystery of the murder and who it really is. So much information about identical twins-so fascinating to learn about this.Good story line and hope to read more from this author. Enjoyed the characters.I received this review book from The Kensington Books and this is my honest opinion.

    Five stars for the Barbara Ross story. Four stars for the Leslie Meier story (did not like the climax; too close to real-life events). Two stars and a half stars for the Lee Hollis story.

    Eggnog Murder is a compilation of three short cozy mysteries by three different authors. All the stories are a part of their own series. It is tough to do a cozy properly in such short form as it turns them into fluff, even beyond what I have come to accept in the genre. That being said, all of the authors delivered entertaining enough stories, with wonderful Christmas settings.I was, however, very disappointed in the amount of political opinions that Leslie Meier managed to pack into her work. Honestly, I hate that sort of thing to its core to begin with, but it absolutely ruined what might have been my favorite story in the collection. I have not read any of her other books, but the first in this same series, Lucy Stone Mysteries, was on my short list for the holidays. Only because of my love for Lucy Stone's age, place in life, and realistic family conflict (which I found so relatable) I will still give it a try. If it is laden with her political concerns it will be peace out!

    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.Meier, Hollis, and Ross each contribute a novella-length cozy mystery themed around eggnog and the holiday season. Each of their stories contains characters from their own mystery series.These are fun, quick reads to get you in the holiday spirit. Each mystery was good, and had some nice twists at the end.I also really enjoyed getting the glimpses into each author's characters. It makes me want to read more of their books.There really wasn't much not to like about this book. I really liked getting three cozy mysteries in one book, all holiday-themed, all with clever solutions, and all with engaging characters.If you're looking for a fun, holiday-themed read, this is a great cozy mystery collection.

    I'm glad I don't like eggnog because I wouldn't want any after these short stories! But Christmas cookies and cider would go well with the stories!In Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier, a bottle of eggnog is gifted and regifted and a woman dies. Was she the intended victim? Lucy Stone is busy balancing Christmas, work, and family, but still digs into the mystery. Her daughter is home on a visit from Paris and is not only obnoxiously Parisian, but thoroughly thoughtless of anyone around her. Will it be a good Christmas after all?In Death by Eggnog by Lee Hollis, eggnog is the murder weapon again. This time, the town's horrible librarian is the victim. Who killed her and why? Everyone disliked her, but who wanted her dead?In Nogged Off by Barbara Ross, no one dies from eggnog, but the story begins with a contaminated batch of eggnog causing food poisoning at an office party. Julia is planning to close up her New York apartment and turn her lease over to Imogene, but Imogene was the supplier of the eggnog and ends up going back to Maine with Julia. But what is really going on?

    Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier, Barbara Ross, and Lee Hollis contains three Christmas cozy mystery stories. Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier is set in Tinker’s Cove, Maine. The Pennysaver is serving eggnog and cookies during the annual holiday stroll. Dorcas Philpott has a cup of the holiday brew and ends up dead. Who tampered with the eggnog? Lucy wants to find the killer and wrap up the investigation so she can enjoy the holidays with her family.Death by Eggnog by Lee Hollis is a Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery story. Agatha Farnsworth is the town librarian that people dread talking to because she is extremely grumpy. At the annual Restaurant Association Christmas Dinner, Agatha enjoys a cup of eggnog. Unfortunately, it is her last. Hayley sets out to bag the killer.Nogged Off by Barbara Ross is set in Busman’s Harbor, Maine. Julia Snowden ends up with an extra unwanted guest for Christmas. Julia goes to clean out her apartment and finds her tenant Imogen Geinkes in tears. Imogen just lost her job and boyfriend. Julia packs up everything in a truck and takes Imogen to her mother. The moving truck disappears and is found with Imogen’s ex-boyfriend dead inside. Julia wants to tie this investigation up quickly so she can enjoy the holiday with her family.Eggnog Murder contained some cute stories. They are short and sweet. They are nicely written and good additions to each series. I did find the mysteries simple and easily solved. It is nice to catch up with the characters from the cozy mystery series that I enjoy reading. I give Eggnog Murder 4 out of 5 stars (I liked them). You can enjoy the stories even if you have not read the books in each series (you might find some new cozy mystery series to enjoy). Eggnog Murder will help put you in the mood for Christmas.

    This book is like a Whitman’s Sampler – you get a small taste of three really fine cozy mystery writers. If you picked up the book because you regularly read one of the authors, you will be pleasantly surprised by offerings of the other two. All three authors have written equally delicious killer stories . . . just don’t sample the eggnog.

    This book has three stories in it that all have Eggnog as part of the plot. Eggnog Murder, Death by Eggnog, and Nogged Off. The books are based on the characters in the series that these ladies write, but you do not have to be familiar with them to enjoy these stories. Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier once again stars the sleuthing Lucy Stone. When one of the town's busiest ladies gets poisoned by tainted eggnog, the fingers are pointing. Did it come from the "The Red Beard Santa Club", or did someone else poison it? Was it poisoned at all? Who was the intended victim? While all this is going on, Lucy is writing a story about the death of a Veteran of Gulf Storm. Her sister's story about how she was abandoned, left scrambling for funds and receiving no support from veteran affairs touched Lucy immensely. The story turns out to be misleading and Lucy is in trouble. Where does this all lead? How does it all fit together? Great plot with twists that will pull you in. This story was a case of a planned murder gone wrong. Of course, don't forget to try the recipes included. Death by Eggnog by Lee Hollis stars food columnist Hayley. There is some similarity with the first story. Town librarian Agatha Farnsworth dies from anaphylactic shock after drinking eggnog with milk that was labeled non-dairy. She was a miserable woman who left behind a long string of possible suspects. I love that the library in town plays such an important role in the lives of the characters. This one took me completely by surprise. I had no idea who the culprit was. Again there are some fun recipes included in this story. I enjoy the characters in this series. Hayley's brother and his husband are a hoot. The expressions the police chief uses, as his first language is Portuguese, are hilarious. The plot is great, but I did figure out the culprit in this one. Another fun read. Nogged Off by Barbara Ross is another fun one. The ditzy character that Julia brings home to Busman's Harbor is Imogens Geinkes (initials I.M.A. Geinkes) and a jinx she is. Everything she gets involved in seems to go wrong. In this story she inadvertently poisons the staff with homemade Eggnog and they all end up in the hospital. Embarrassed so badly, she quits her job and can no longer take over the lease on Julia's apartment. With no where to go, being dumped by her boyfriend, she somehow gets Julia to invite her to her mother's home for a New England Christmas. Things do not go as planned. The truck with all her furniture is stolen from her mother's driveway and then, Imogen's boyfriend turns up dead tied to a chair in the back of the truck once it is located. I thought I had this one figured out, but with another twist, I realized I was on the wrong track. This was a good story that kept me guessing to the end. Recipes are included in this story as well. I enjoyed the holiday traditions shared in the book as well as the information that these are the ones the author participated in growing up. These stories really got me into the Christmas spirit. It was a great compilation of three very enjoyable cozy mystery writers. Check it out! The publisher generously provided me with a copy of the book via Netgalley.
