Murder in Her Stocking (A Granny Reid Mystery)
by G. A. McKevett
Murder in Her Stocking is so very enjoyable, fresh but familiar at the same time … fresh because it begins G. A. McKevett’s the new Granny Reid series; familiar because it delves back into the early years of the Reid children and their beloved granny from the Savannah Reid series.
~The Power of Words
Murder in her Stocking was a great mystery story with a delightful new heroine . . . Stella was a delightful character and I really enjoyed spending time with her . . .
This is a heartfelt story of taking responsibility, of loving family so strongly you will do whatever it takes to assure them the best life possible. This is also a tale of forgiveness and hope.
The story is tender and full of Christmas magic. Being set in Georgia, there was plenty of Southern sayings and some had me laughing out loud.
Murder is not what one usually asks for at Christmastide (I don’t imagine anybody’s ever requested that from Santa), but family, friends, life, love, and friendship are what most want at this season, as well as throughout the year. Author G. A. McKevett delivers a little of the former, and heapin’ helpins’ of the latter group, in MURDER IN HER STOCKING (a Granny Reid Mystery).

G A McKevett doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of life, but she presents them (in this book) so that they get sandwiched with a lot of fun!

This cozy trip back to the 1980s was well written with just the right balance of mystery and fun.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
The artfully laid out plot is heavy with clichéd sayings and little glimmers of Granny’s wisdom bestowed with love and guidance to the little ones.
This is a prequel to the Savannah Reid Mysteries and was a very wonderful holiday read . . . The family dynamic in this novel was excellent. The mystery was also well thought out with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing till the end.

What a great holiday mystery! Having never read a book from this author before, I was instantly a fan of Granny Reid. Going back to the 80’s to a holiday season where remembering can be murder is the perfect way to have a holiday mystery.

As the Moonlight Magnolia Agency revisits old memories on Christmas Eve, Granny Reid takes the reins back thirty years to the 1980s—back when she went by Stella, everyone’s hair was bigger, and sweaters were colorful disasters. But murder never went out of style . . .
Christmas has arrived in sleepy McGill, Georgia, but holiday cheer can’t keep temperamental Stella Reid from swinging a rolling pin at anyone who crosses her bad side—and this season, there are plenty. First an anonymous grinch vandalizes a celebrated nativity display. Far worse, the scandalous Prissy Carr is found dead in an alley behind a tavern. With police puzzled over the murder, Stella decides to stir the local gossip pot for clues on the culprit’s identity . . .
Turns out Prissy held a prominent spot on the naughty list, and suspects pile up like presents on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, the more progress Stella makes, the more fears she must confront. With a neighbor in peril and the futures of her beloved grandchildren at risk, Stella must somehow set everything straight and bring a cunning criminal to justice before December 25th . . .
