Where Is Your Bookmark? (A Little Yuletide--and murder--in July)

I am just about to dive in Jennifer David Hesse's Yuletide Homicide. I recently read the first two books of the Wiccan Wheel cozy mystery series featuring attorney Keli Milanni, a vegan and practicing Wiccan, who has a nose for crime solving. I have enjoyed the series so far and am anxious to see what trouble Keli finds herself in next. Plus, I just love her friends Mila and Farrah and her boyfriend Wes.



A weekly meme where readers share the first sentence (or more) of the book they are reading and say what they think. Hosted by the wonderful Gillion Dumas of Rose City Reader.

"Blackmail? Really? Someone is blackmailing Edgar?"
Now there was something you didn't hear every day. Before I could stop myself, an image flashed to mind: Edindale's most prominent silver-haired citizen engaged in a steamy, salacious affair. Scandalous! But with whom? I shifted in my leather seat and smoothed my pencil skirt, as  I waited for my boss to continue. 

My thoughts:  With an opening like that, I have to know more! Who indeed? And who could be blackmailing him?


A weekly meme in which readers share a random sentence or two from page 56 or 56% of the book they are reading. Hosted by the wonderful Freda of Freda's Voice.

Allison looked away. "It was at the ball, in the lounge. He was having yet another drink, and I tried to slow him down. He told me to relax, said he was celebrating. And I said, 'You haven't won yet. The campaign has barely begun.' he grinned at me and said that wasn't it. He said, "I've figured something out. I figured out whose been messing with me, and now I can put an end to it."  [56%]


My thoughts: Given I just started reading this book when I jotted down the first paragraphs for you, I do not know anything about the set up for this conversation. It sounds a bit ominous though, doesn't it? I can't wait to dive in!


What do you think? Does this sound like something you would be interested in reading? What are you reading right now?

  1. I haven't read a cozy in a while and I'm not sure why because they're always fun.

  3. Oh, I love the sound of this one! A vegan Wiccan attorney sounds unique enough to grab me. Also, Christmas in July is turning out to be a THING, I guess. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “ALL YOUR PERFECTS”

  5. I don't usually choose cozies, but frequently like their covers. Why I like a cozy cover and rarely choose to read them--I'm not sure. :)

  11. A vegan, Wiccan, Christmas cozy? That's a mind bender for me. Thanks for posting the opening on Book Beginnings on Friday!
