Not a Creature Was Stirring
(Merry & Bright Handcrafted Mystery)
by Christina Freeburn
This book was the right mix of Christmas cheer, family relationships, mystery, and community.
~Carla Loves to Read
If you love Christmas, you really do need to read this book. Christmas oozes from every page. Whether it’s talk of Christmas carols, Christmas decorations, Christmas crafts, or comparing people to characters from Christmas stories, you can’t help but get into the Christmas spirit.
What made this cozy mystery delightful for me was the settings, of course (all that snow!) but mainly the character of Merry Winters. Here is an individual we ought to all admire: a genuinely GOOD person, ready to think the best of everybody and to exert the effort to help and comfort anyone in need.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
Not A Creature Was Stirring is fast-paced, funny, and filled with a quirky cast of characters. I devoured this book in a couple of days.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
This is a story about new possibilities and old insecurities, some relationships and choices revisited, some regret . . . The characters are complicated and have “interesting“ relationships.
An intriguing mystery and themes of Christmas and crafting make NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING a fun holiday read.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
The author has crafted a unique mystery and I really enjoyed the way she told this story. I was engaged the entire way and captivated by the way everything came together in the end.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The story was a perfect blend of Christmas, family, love, revenge, and murder. With so many twists and turns and whatnot, the story is engaging and exciting till the very end!
~The Book Decoder
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and creating suspense with the written word. I thought the plot was well thought out and moved at a nice pace.
I enjoyed this story from the start until the surprising conclusion.
