Mistletoe Mysteries: Tales of Yuletide Murder is a collection of Christmas themed short mysteries. The mysteries are light and provide quick reads. The subtitle is a bit misleading as not at all of the stories involve murder. Each of the stories revolves around the holiday season. My favorite was a Christmas themed ghost story, "The Live Tree" by John Lutz. With tales from Mary Higgins Clark, Eric Wright, and Susan Dunlap, this book offers something for everyone.
Detox Delish: Your Guide to Clean Eating by Jennifer Mac has a Biblical side focus for plant based eating. As the title suggests the book has a main focus on detox. The first portion of the book explains about the author's life and her reasons for a raw, plant based diet. The second half focuses on the detox plan and the raw food recipes. While the idea is good, I am not convinced it is for everyone. The idea of a multiple day fast will work for some but not all. Many of the ideas and recipes can be incorporated into anyone's diet though.
The Seven-Course Christmas Killer by Rosie Genova is a holiday themed short mystery from the Italian Kitchen Mystery series. I have not read anything else in the series, but I was easily able to follow this short story. This is a fast paced mystery that takes place during a traditional Italian Christmas Eve celebration. Victoria and her sister have to find out who is trying to kill the mayor before the seventh course is served. I found this to be a wonderful little taste of the series and definitely made me want to read more. It is a fun, short, holiday mystery
