Wreath Between The Lines by Daryl Wood Gerber-Great Escapes Tour-Review

About the book 
The Agatha Award–winning author of Pressing the Issue returns to the Cookbook Nook, where Jenna Hart is busy decking the halls and ducking a killer . . .
The holidays are Jenna Hart’s favorite time of year, but just as she’s decorating the Cookbook Nook for all the festive events, her imperious older sister makes a surprise visit, anxious that her husband’s been more naughty than nice. To make matters worse, her father’s good friend Jake shows up on her doorstep with a frantic report that his friend has been murdered—trussed with Christmas lights and impaled with a tree star.
Worried that Jake was the intended victim, Jenna makes a list of suspects and checks it twice. Swapping her Santa’s hat for a sleuthing cap, she gets busy investigating Jake’s long-lost sister, his Grinch of a neighbor, and a stamp collector who covets Jake’s most treasured piece. When Jake himself is poisoned and nearly dies, Jenna knows she’ll have to do whatever it takes to corner the culprit before it’s lights out for Jake . . .
Includes tantalizing holiday recipes!
And I thought
A Merry Christmas read with a little bit of mystery.  This is my 
first chance to read this series and this one was delightful. 
All the holiday cheer in the midst of the mystery of who did in 
Jake's friend is a fun and fast read. 
I enjoyed the characters it was easy to stay interested in the story as your enticed by the setting of the cookbook shop.  I wanted to go shopping myself. 
The plot/storyline has some twists and turns and there is some family drama that adds to the mix.  Giving nothing away here but just a tidbit Jenna's Brother in Law might be a wee bit of trouble 
gasp Does he have an alibi for the night that Jakes friend is stabbed with a Christmas star and trussed like a turkey. 
And even worst Jenna's sister fear what exactly is her husbands alibe?

 The plot thickens as the suspects line up  and a strange homeless woman begins hanging around town.  

Wreath Between The Lines is a fun Christmas themed cozy read.
I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more in this series. 

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
