April Claus, married to the acting Santa, can’t wait to show off her new North Pole home to Claire, her old friend from Oregon. Things go a bit awry when a drone-deer smashes the winning ice sculpture. The real reindeer aren’t happy about the drones, and so they went on strike. Santa is wondering if he will have reindeer to pull his sleigh, an elf inventor is missing, April’s elf friend is arrested, and Claire is smitten with detective Jake Frost, a distant relation to Jack Frost. Yikes! Things are sure topsy-turvy in Santaland. And they are about to get even worse. This delightful Christmas tale is pure entertainment at its very best. Great characters, an imaginative plot, and wonderful writing make this entire series one of the best Christmas series around.… (mais)

April has brought some of her holiday traditions to Santaland, and celebrating Thanksgiving is just one of them. The elves has even ordered a live turkey to fatten for the feast, but Gobbles has escaped, or was turkey-napped! In the midst of this trouble, at a lavish dinner party Nick’s cousin falls face first into her plate of mashed potatoes, dead. At first, Nick’s wife April is suspected of poisoning her, but was soon cleared . . . or was she? Someone is setting her up for this crime! April will need the help of her friends, and maybe even a reindeer, before this all gets sorted out. Meanwhile, everyone in Santaland is getting into the Thanksgiving spirit with baking special things, making candies, and planning a parade with floats, bands, and Santa. Emotions are running high and the hectic pace shows no sign of slowing down. Dare I say that nearly everyone is running around like a chicken with its head cut off! (Or maybe a turkey.) This highly entertaining and quite imaginative tale is filled with Christmas joy, except for the murder, of course, but then, nothing is always perfect, even in Santaland. However, this is the perfect story for some Christmas fun. It s well written, has wonderful characters, (elves, reindeer, and snowmen included), and quite an interesting plot. I wonder what other holiday traditions April will share with her new friends in Santaland. I hope I don’t have to wait long to find out!… (mais)

Mrs. Claus and the Trouble with Turkeys by Liz Ireland is the fourth book in this cozy mystery series, and I have really enjoyed them all! The premise is so much fun; elves, reindeer, Christmasland, snow beasts, a Hallmark perfect town, and murder.

We get to catch up with all the well written characters, and are introduced to a bunch more. This time Mrs. Claus has introduced Thanksgiving to the land, and instead of a one day celebration, the elves have decided to turn it into a week long one, since they love to sing and celebrate.

We get a missing turkey, secrets being held by a best friend, attacks on the elderly, and “hard labor” at the prison… if you consider eating pastries and making paper mache something you don’t want to do.
So much sweetness and fun, combined with mystery and murder, makes for a great cozy!

If you are ready to kick back and get invested in a strange new, world, this is the book to do it. This is the third book in the series, and April is now accustomed to being Mrs. Claus. Her best friend from Oregon, Claire, is visiting for the big holiday, so with her, I learned about much of the magic of Christmastown and how Santaland operates. Reindeer worried about being replaced by drones, snowmen who slowly move and see all, and of course, the elves. When April's elf friend Juniper stumbles upon the body of another elf, April and Claire both rally to investigate. Really cute book and the world building was fantastic, What a great, fun story, I'd like to go back and check out the earlier two.… (mais)
