I was lucky to get an advanced reading copy of Ellen Byron's third book in the A Cajun Country Mystery series, A Cajun Christmas Killing. This book is out October 10th and a series I adore!
Ellen Byron made me feel right at home at Christmas in her home plantation and b&b. Set just before Christmas, this was not your normal Christmas story either and I loved that it was a complicated crime to solve and there were some points in the story I found so emotional. I feel so invested in these characters and it felt like going home for the holidays. In true cozy mystery form, you get a crime that cozy are famous for and you get that cozy Christmas feeling at the end. I also loved the recipes included. You can pre order A Cajun Christmas Killing now.
Maggie Crozat is back home in bayou country during the most magical time of the year.

With Bo sidelined during the investigation, Maggie finds herself forced to work with an unlikely ally: longtime family enemy Rufus Durand. Her sleuthing uncovers more suspects than drummers drumming, and lands her in the crosshairs of the murderer.The sleigh bells are jingling, and the clock is ticking for Maggie and Rufus, who must catch the killer or it will be the opposite of a Joyeux Noël in A Cajun Christmas Killing, the recipe-stuffed third installment of USA Today bestselling author Ellen Byron’s Cajun Country mysteries.
