Rock Star Becomes Reindeer Roadkill
Visions of sensational headlines, not sugarplums, dance in LA Informer columnist Tina Bender’s head this holiday season.
When the drummer for ’80s hair-metal band Twelve falls from the top of a holiday parade float and gets trampled to death by eight not-so-tiny reindeer, Tina scoops the story of the year! But was the fall an accident or something more sinister? Was the drummer’s jilted lover involved, or his newly discovered son? And what does the snowman have to do with it? Crack tabloid reporter Tina’s on the case—determined to find out who’s been naughty and who’s been downright lethal.
My Thoughts :
I have read most of the books in Gemma Hallidays High Heel's Mystery series but never managed to try anything else by the author. My revisit to the Twelve Days of Killer Fiction series turned up this novella that I obviously missed last year when they were released.
There isn't much you can say about a novella without giving everything away so I will just say this is definitely worth reading. A great cozy mystery, some fun bits, some serious bits and some interesting characters. The plot was well thought out and kept me guessing. The Christmas angle wasn't too over bearing and it turned out to be nice little read.
Check out the other Twelve Days of Christmas novellas and see if there are any others you would like! They are cheap and cheerful and lovely short stories from a wide variety of authors and genres.
