OK, I have to admit it. >>> I’m a sucker for holiday themed mystery books. (No surprise to a lot of you!) And, here’s another admission: I won’t be able to catch up to David Handler’s The Snow White Christmas Cookie this year, but hopefully, I will by next December.
When I was getting the October 2012 Mystery Book New Releases list together this month, there were a few mysteries that really caught my attention. This mystery by David Handler was one of these books.
David Handler is one of the authors who I have had my eye on for a while. I have so many mystery authors who I already follow, so every time I try a new one, I put a lot of thought into it. I look at the reviews other people have written, as well as try to check out “what the author is all about.”In the case of David Handler, I liked what I found out. The fact that he has won an Edgar Award, was a finalist for an Anthony Award, a finalist of the Dilys Award,that his Berger & Mitry Mystery Series takes place in an historic village in Connecticut, and the fact that he was part of the writing team that created the Kate and Allie Show convinced me to give his books a try.
So, having just finished my latest Monica Ferris Needlecraft mystery, I am now embarking on a new-to-me author, and am really looking forward to reading The Cold Blue Blood.
