A Christmas Peril (A Theater Cop Mystery)
by J. A. Hennrikus
…readers will have laugh out loud moments with Sully and friends. Then you get the whirl wind of mystery with murder, and seeing Sully in her element. It is a super start to a series, and this series is a must read in the making.
Sully is already a strong main character with strengths and flaws that make her relatable.
A likeable lead character, good secondary characters, a solid mystery and a smidgen of romance kept me turning pages from start to finish.

The suspects start out being a short list but then as evidence is discovered and additional deaths occur, other possibilities open up. I started to suspect several persons.
I enjoyed reading about all the backstage activities of Cliffside’s A Christmas Carol. I didn’t want A Christmas Peril to end…
This was an absolutely delightful book!
A Christmas Peril is a fun and exciting cozy mystery.
This book was a promising start to a new series. The theater aspect of this book really caught my attention and intrigued me and it delivered well on that end.
A CHRISTMAS PERIL is an intricately plotted mystery with fascinating characters.

The author weaves the story along with the production of A Christmas Carol keeping the reader interested and anticipating the end almost in a bittersweet way. I wanted to see how it ended. But I knew it would end too soon.
~My Reading Journeys
The mystery is well crafted with lots of suspects, but no one being obvious.
~The Power of Words
The author has written a great book in the first of a series that will only get more intense with intrigue and characters that jump off the pages. I will be looking for the next in this series with anticipation.
The writing was superb, which made it flow really well… and kept me turning pages.

This cozy mystery is a lot of fun to read. I love the theater as a background setting and all of the quirky characters. I liked Sully right away.

When Edwina “Sully” Sullivan’s life imploded, she left behind her job on the police force and her unfaithful husband to start a new life as the general manager of her hometown theater, the Cliffside Theater Company. For five years, she focused on budgets instead of crimes and kept the Cliffside running alongside its mercurial artistic director.
But when her best friend is arrested for killing his father, the rich and powerful Peter Whitehall, no one is looking for another suspect. So, in between keeping A Christmas Carol on budget and Scrooge sober, Sully dusts off her investigative skills to find a killer. Her two lives collide when her ex-husband gets on the suspect list and she’s forced to confront her past in order to save her present.
