Dash Away All
(Merry & Bright Handcrafted Mystery)
Expected publication: July 7th 2020
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Merry Winters is excited for her dream-come-true moment: Being an on-site crafter for a Christmas movie. The tidings of joy are short-lived as she finds herself becoming a referee, dealing with a raging Ebenezer, participating in a bucket brigade, and finding evidence in a “murder.”
Is someone trying to stop the production or is it tied to a secret someone has on Luna Carmichael, the star of the movie and the queen of Christmas?
When Marie, Luna’s assistant, stumbles away from a car accident and dies, Merry believes the accident wasn’t quite so accidental. Was Luna or Marie the target? Merry finds more questions than answers, but one thing is certain: Everyone has an ulterior motive for being part of the production—including Marie.
After another murder, Merry wonders if the deaths are tied to a baby born long ago and abandoned. And more importantly, will Merry live long enough to find out?
This is the third book in the Merry and Bright Handcrafted mystery series by Christina Freeburn.
Basic premise: Crafting for a Christmas movie isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Merry Winters is excited to be involved in such an awesome adventure but when it comes down to it, murder trumps Christmas almost every time. Everyone’s a suspect here and Merry is put on a merry chase to find out what is really going on when one of the movie assistants is discovered dead.
I thought this was a really well done book. I always love a good crafting mystery.
Just when you think you might understand whodunit, that is the moment when everything changes and you have to question what you think might be the motive behind it all. Definitely a series I want to continue with
If you like this type of book and want to read a good cozy mystery, check this one out for sure. You won’t be disappointed.
