Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Cold Turkey (Celebration Bay Mystery #1.5)

Cold Turkey - Shelley Freydont

A mini-mystery that takes place between the first and second books of the Celebration Bay mystery series. Most novella's focus on character development, but this was a full-fledged mini-mystery with a murder taking place during the 10k Turkey Trot.


I'll call this one of the better mystery novella's I've read for plot complexity. I'm still reserving judgement on the characters - The author hasn't done a whole lot to make me like those that feel like they are going to be an integral part of the series (Chaz) but one can hardly expect the author to accomplish that in an ebook special novella.


Overall, if you enjoy the mini-stories that pop up in your mystery series, this is one of the better ones.
