A Cajun Christmas Killing: A Cajun Country Mystery
Maggie Crozat looks forward to Christmas in Pelican, Louisiana every year, but this year it’s different at Crozat Plantation B&B: her father wants to downplay the annual bonfire, a troll has flooded a travel website with negative reviews, and difficult guest Donald Baxter turns up dead. With her family, her close friends, and her boyfriend, Detective Bo Durand, as suspects, the case falls to Rufus Durand, who carries a longtime family grudge against hers. When Maggie sleuths her way into the investigation, she ends up catching the attention of the murderer.
Focusing on family, schemes, and betrayal, the mystery is layered and has a wide range of suspects who add twists and turns, with stakes that get deadlier the more Maggie investigates. The characters are charming and quirky, playing off one another with chemistry and witty banter. The relationships are delightful–from family bonds to friendship–and show through in the strength and sincerity of the close-knit community. Maggie’s relationship with Bo is endearing and honest, adding sweet romance to the plot. A Cajun Christmas Killing is fun and heartwarming, a real holiday treat that will leave you guessing until the end.
