murder with all the trimmings

About the book:

Mystery shopper Josie Marcus doesn’t get the appeal of the year-round Christmas shop. But when three such holiday houses pop up within two blocks, she’s assigned to rate them anonymously.

Easy enough, Josie thinks, until she realizes that shoppers at one store are finding a strange—even deadly—secret ingredient in their holiday cake. And Josie must get to the bottom of it all before someone else becomes a Christmas spirit.

Includes insider shopping tips!

My Review: I loved this book – maybe because I love cozy mysteries, maybe because it was a holiday book, or MAYBE because the setting was St. Louis and I lived there for 13 years and could recognize the names of places!  I think the reason I loved this book was a combination of those three PLUS the story was just plain fun!  I also became interested in mystery shopping as that was Josie’s main occupation, and I am loving shopping lately.
