Cozy Corner (07/01/2020): Rest Ye Murdered Gentleman

In Rudolph, New York, it’s Christmastime all year long. But this December, while the snow-lined streets seem merry and bright, a murder is about to ruin everyone’s holiday cheer in the first Year-Round Christmas mystery.
As the owner of Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, Merry Wilkinson knows how to decorate homes for the holidays.

But when a priceless first edition Jane Austen novel is stolen and the chair of the library board is murdered, Lucy suddenly finds herself ensnared in a real-life mystery—and she’s not so sure there’s going to be a happy ending….
