Christmas Scarf Murder Kindle Edition
CHRISTMAS SCARF MURDER by CARLENE O’CONNOR
When grinchy thefts steal the good cheer at a local nursing home, Siobhan O’Sullivan manages to identify one missing item before Kilbane, Ireland’s Christmas tractor parade—a hideous shamrock scarf wrapped around a very dead body. Now, with her holiday farmhouse bash approaching, Siobhan must dash to stop a deadly Secret Santa from gifting another unwanted surprise.
SCARFED DOWN by MADDIE DAY
It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas at Pans ‘N Pancakes, as twelve days of menu specials dazzle hungry locals. But the festivities go cold the instant a diner dies while knitting a brilliant green scarf. With Aunt Adele tied into a murder investigation, it’s all on Robbie Jordan to find out who’s really been naughty or nice in South Lick, Indiana.
DEATH BY CHRISTMAS SCARF by PEGGY EHRHART
Suspects pile up faster than New Jersey snow when frosty-tempered Carys Walnutt is found strangled by a handmade scarf auctioned at Arborville’s tree-lighting ceremony. Between a winning bidder hiding behind the alias “S. Claws” and a victim who deserved coal in her stocking, can Pamela Paterson and the crafty Knit and Nibble ladies freeze a killer’s merry murder plot?

Christmas Scarf Murder was my favourite of the three, with some great characters, especially the residents of the nursing home. The dialogue was well written and entertaining and the ending was well plotted and exciting. Scarfed Down was a close second with some of my favourite cozy mystery characters. I love the down home wisdom, comments and friendships with Robbie Jordan and her friends and family. Buck is always good for a laugh. There was a lot of Christmas cheer and although there was a showdown to catch the killer, it was a good, safe conclusion for all. I'm not a big fan of the A Knit & Nibble Mystery series, so it is no surprise that this was my least favourite of the stories. Death by Christmas Scarf took us to Arborville NJ with Pamela and her Knit and Nibble ladies. This story had a lot of suspects as the victim was not well liked at all. There were a lot of Christmas festivities mixed in with the investigation and after solving the case there was another get together complete with lots of gossip and food. I always enjoy how these stories time together with a theme or item and Christmas Scarf Murder did a great job with that.
Christmas Scarf Murder – Carlene O’Connor
Siobhan O’Sullivan and Macdara Flannery are preparing to celebrate their first Christmas together as husband and wife but first they need to solve the disappearance of some small items from a local nursing home. Solving the mystery of those disappearances becomes more urgent when someone is killed and one of the items – a scarf - is the murder weapon. Can they solve the case in time to enjoy their first Christmas together?
I love Carlene O’Connor’s Irish Village cozy mystery series and “Christmas Scarf Murder” is a nice addition to the series. I love the relationship between Siobhan, Macdara, and their extended family and it is even more richer now that they are married. The mystery in the book – both the missing items and the murder is very well done. I had fun trying to solve the mystery along with Siobhan and Macdara – there are plenty of twists and turns and every time I thought I had figured out who the killer was O’Connor threw in another twist and it turned out I was wrong. Well done!
Scarfed Down – Maddie Day
It is Christmastime and Robbie Jordan is busy running Pans ‘N Pancakes and trying to figure out the daily special with a Twelve Days of Christmas theme. But when a customer is murdered and the police tie it to the yarn made by Robbie’s Aunt Adele, Robbie knows she needs to clear her aunt’s name – fast.
“Scarfed Down” is a nice addition to Maddie Day’s Country Store cozy mystery series. I really enjoy this series and wish Pan ‘N Pancakes existed in real life (although I can just imagine the weight I would gain if it did!) I love the fact that Day picked a unique murder weapon (poisoned yarn!) and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing who the killer was. In the end, I enjoyed the visit with Robbie and friends and was sorry when the story ended.
Death by Christmas Scarf – Peggy Ehrhart
Pamela Paterson and members of the Knit and Nibble club are shocked when Carys Walnutt is found strangled by a scarf knit by one of their members. Carys was not well liked and there are plenty of suspect although the police seem to have one particular suspect in mind. Pamela isn’t convinced though and she and her friend Bettina set out to find the real killer before the police arrest the wrong person.
I have never read any of Peggy Ehrhart’s Knit and Nibble cozy mysteries, but I thoroughly enjoyed “Death by a Christmas Scarf”. I loved the description of the Knit and Nibble club – the people in it, the food they ate during their meetings, and their various projects (there is a pattern for one of the projects at the end of the story). The mystery is well done with plenty of suspects and red herrings – I thought for sure I knew who the killer was but I was way off. In the end, I enjoyed the story and will buy more books in the series.
“Christmas Scarf Murder” is a nice collection of Christmas-themed cozy mysteries.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley.
