Описание

"Yule Log Murder" by Leslie Meier:

Lucy Stone is thrilled to be cast as an extra in a festive period film...until the set becomes a murder scene decorated in blood and buttercream icing. Returning to her role as sleuth, Lucy dashes to restore peace to Tinker's Cove, unwrap a cold-hearted criminal's MO, and reveal how one ornate yule-log cake could possibly cause so much drama.

"Death by Yule Log" by Lee Hollis:

Hayley Powell's holidays aren't off to a very merry start. Not only has her daughter brought Connor, an infuriatingly perfect new beau, home to Bar Harbor but a local troublemaker has been found dead with traces of her signature yule-log cake on his body.

"Logged On" by Barbara Ross:

Realizing she can't make a decent Bûche de Noël to save her life, Julia Snowden enlists the help of her eccentric neighbor, Mrs. St. Onge, in hopes of mastering the dessert for Christmas, but soon she must save her neighbor from becoming the next Busman's Harbor resident to meet a not-so-jolly fate.

    Yule Log Murder is actually a collection of three cosy Christmas mystery novellas - Yule Log Mystery by Leslie Meier, Death by Yule Log by Lee Hollis, and Logged On by Barbara Ross. As in any anthology, I liked some better than others (Logged Off was my favourite) but they were all entertaining. They are all set in small towns; they all have female protagonists; all have a touch of humour; and, as the title suggests, yule logs play a role in each story. Overall, this was a fun read and a nice distraction from all the stresses of the season. And, if that's not enough of an incentive to read Yule Log Mystery, there are some delicious-sounding recipes if you are searching for something new for your holiday table including one for, of course, a yule log.Thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

    This book contains three Christmas mystery novellas by three different mystery authors that I love, featuring their main characters and a Yule Log. Up first is the title story by Leslie Meier as Lucy Stone tries to figure out how a young woman died on the set of a movie being filmed in town. Next comes "Death by Yule Log" by Lee Hollis. In this story, Hayley Powell meets her daughter's new boyfriend. While she is less than impressed with him, she begins to poke around when he is accused of murder. Finally comes "Logged On" by Barbara Ross. Christmas is approaching, and Julia Snowden is determined to make a great yule log, so seeks help from Mrs. St. Onge, an unpleasant neighbor everyone agrees makes the best yule log cakes around. All her relatives seemed to have died at Christmas and others in her life are missing. Can Julia solve this mystery?

    This is a nice anthology featuring three strong mysteries. The stories are not long, but the authors managed to write some good stories with a few twists and turns. I think I liked Death By Yule Log the best, but all were enjoyable. You do not need to read the series these stories are connected to in order to enjoy them, but if you do, you will recognize many of the same characters. The Yule Log Murder is an excellent way to get into the Christmas spirit. Despite all the tales using a yule log, each one had an entirely different spin on the plot. You'll get plenty of Christmas spirit while reading this book, and each author includes some recipes you can make after you've finished the book, including three different recipes for yule logs. The publisher, Kensington Publishing Corporation, generously provided me with a copy of this book upon my request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.

    Yule Log Murder contains three short cozy mysteries by Lucy Stone, Barbara Ross and Lee Hollis. Yule Log Murder by Leslie Meier takes us to Tinker’s Cove, Maine. Lucy is playing an extra in the period film, Guinevere being filmed at Pine Point. Lucy finds it tedious until the cook’s assistant is found dead smothered in pink icing from a yule log and a knife to the stomach. When Phyllis Lundquist’s relative is arrested for the crime, Lucy is tasked with finding the culprit. She must work in her sleuthing in between working at the paper, her role in the film and the final preparations for Christmas. Lucy gets an early Christmas present when her son, Patrick and his family arrive to celebrate the holidays. Surprise turns to shock when she encounters their new pit bull, Skittles and hears their unexpected news. Spending time on the set tracking down a killer sounds like a welcome escape to Lucy. Lee Hollis entertains readers with Death by Yule in Bar Harbor, Maine. Hayley Powell’s holidays are not starting off as planned when her son, Dustin becomes snowed in with his father. Her daughter, Gemma arrives with her new actor boyfriend, Conner who seems too perfect. They attend Liddy’s annual Christmas party which has a significant number of party crashers including local bad boy, Ryan Toledo. After an altercation between Ryan and Conner over Gemma, Ryan is escorted out of the party. A few hours later, Ryan is found in the woods near Liddy’s house with remnants of one of Hayley’s Yule logs on his body. Connor is at the top of the suspect list and a distressed Gemma asks Hayley to clear his name. Which resident of Bar Harbor is getting an orange jumpsuit for Christmas?Logged On by Barbara Ross is set in Busman’s Harbor, Maine. Julia Snowden wants to start her own Christmas tradition and she has decided it will be a Buche de Noel (oh dear). Julia is not going to let the fact she cannot make a decent one stop her. Julia’s mother suggests she consult their crusty neighbor, Mrs. Odile St. Onge. The baking lessons begin, and they give Julia a chance to learn more about the reclusive woman. Julia has noticed that Mrs. St. Onge’s caregiver quit showing up recently along with her grand-nephew which leaves the older woman without assistance. She decides to investigate the matter, and Julia is dismayed when she learns that Mrs. St. Onge has had a few relatives pass away during the holidays after eating her Buche de Noel. The more Julia learns the more alarmed she becomes. Julia is determined to get answers, but she is wary of becoming the next victim. Yule Log Murder contains three entertaining cozy mysteries. While the three tales are part of existing series, you can read them as standalones. I enjoyed visiting some of my favorite characters during the holiday season. Yule logs are woven into each story. While these delectable cakes are beautiful, they are not easy to make. There are friendly characters, charming small towns, holiday cheer and mysteries in each novella. All three are well-written with steady pacing and good flow. I was a little surprised by what is happening with Patrick Stone’s family in Yule Log Murder. They are not as I remember them, and I hope we see significant changes before they appear in the series again (I know I am being vague, but I do not want to spoil it for you). All three mysteries have humor, but I found myself laughing more at Julia’s antics in Logged On. All three crimes can easily be solved, but they are still pleasing to read (I stayed up very late finishing this collection). I am giving Yule Log Murder 4 out of 5 stars. Find yourself a comfy chair to relax in while reading the diverting and merry novellas in Yule Log Murder.

    What a great way to get into the holiday spirit, especially if in addition to food, recipes, parties, and decorations you don’t mind an amateur sleuth and a little murder and mystery. Yule Log Murder is made up of three stories relating to the Yule by best-selling authors Leslie Meier, Lee Hollis and Barbara Ross. Whether you’ve already read these authors (and if not, you should!) or they are new to you, each story is a standalone featuring a character from their well-known, well-loved series.Meier’s Lucy Stone is feisty and outspoken. I love her attitude! In addition to her job and other commitments she once again gets involved in a murder investigation while dealing with some tricky family issues.Hollis’s Hayley Powell doesn’t want to acknowledge that her children have grown up, and that her daughter’s Mr. Perfect might be too good to be true. Especially when it looks like he might be the murderer.Ross’s Julia Snowden just can’t get that Bûche de Noël dessert to come out right, and it’s a lot of fun watching her try, especially with the cranky old neighbor Mrs. St. Onge. Why is it Julia isn’t supposed to go in the coal bin side of the basement, and why did so many of Mrs. St. Onge’s relatives die during past holidays?All three stories – Yule Log Murder, Death by Yule Log, and Logged on – are good, solid mysteries that keep you turning pages and guessing right until the end. The characters are well developed even in these short novellas and make you want to know them better. The references to food are sure to make you hungry and the recipes look delicious.I was provided a copy of Yule Log Murder from one of the authors but a review was not required. That said, I recommend you add it to your holiday reading list and then either go back and start from the beginning or pick up the next books in these terrific authors’ series to see what Lucy, Hayley and Julia get up to next!
