A Nutcracker Nightmare (A Killer Chocolate Mystery)
by Christina Romeril
If you enjoy holiday cheer with a side of murder, then you’ll want to read A NUTCRACKER NIGHTMARE!
~Cinnamon and Sugar and a little bit of Murder
A sweet (in more ways than one) read and an entertaining mystery that will have you hunting for a stash of chocolate in your pantry!
~Reading is my Superpower
The Nutcracker Nightmare was a very enjoyable read filled with fun characters and a perplexing mystery. I can’t wait to return to Harriston, Montana, and the Murder and Mayhem Book and Chocolate Shop. Who knows what Hanna and Alex will get into next? I do know there will be “killer” chocolates involved.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
If you are ready for the holidays and want a cozy to read, check out this new book. It is set during the holidays, has plenty of decorations to keep you in the spirit, and delicious chocolates that will leave you salivating. I love the chocolates that Hanna creates. I would like a box mailed to me, please! This is a delicious series, and we give it 4 paws up.
A NUTCRACKER NIGHTMARE brings a reunion-themed murder to snowy Montana with romantic disruptions, delicious chocolates, and a poisoned pen-themed blog!
~Cozy Up With Kathy
This is the second installment in a Killer Chocolate Mystery Series. I really enjoyed the first one in this series and was anxiously looking forward to this one. I love cozy mysteries set at Christmas time. And this series is even better. I look forward to the next one in this series.

I enjoyed the first book in the Killer Chocolate Mysteries series, A Christmas Candy Killing, by Christina Romeril, so when I came across A Nutcracker Nightmare, I wanted to revisit Harrison, MT. There was good character and relationship development, along with a well-rounded mystery. If you like cozy mysteries set around the holidays, give this one a try.

Perfect for fans of Joanne Fluke and Laura Childs, when twin sisters Hanna and Alex help out at the local high school reunion, volunteering takes a turn when they find a former classmate’s dead body.
Hanna and Alex, owners of the Murder and Mayhem book and chocolate shop, are busy preparing for the Harriston High School’s reunion weekend. Neighbors will connect with old friends and perhaps try to avoid old foes. One person no one can avoid is Kyle, the former star quarterback, who is busy using his entire playbook to try and score with Hanna, even threatening her if she doesn’t play nice. At the reunion, Alex glimpses more drama than nostalgia as insults are flung around like a football at a Friday night game. The party is put on hold when Alex finds the dead body of none other than Kyle himself, bludgeoned to death by a nutcracker that the sisters admired earlier in the night.
Hanna quickly becomes the prime suspect—someone saw her slap Kyle in the face at the reunion dance. She’ll need her sister, their sleuthing canine, Watson, and their old friends and colleagues to help break this case wide open. While looking through old yearbooks and taking a stroll down memory lane, Alex uncovers a few secrets about Kyle, now, it seems like everyone had a motive to kill him.
But when the suspects start becoming the victims, Alex and Hanna know that they can’t melt under the pressure—they must find the killer before they become just another yearbook memory.
About Christina Romeril
Christina Romeril is the author of the Killer Chocolate Mystery series. The series is set in Montana at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, one of her favourite places to visit. She and her husband live a few hours away in a small village in Southern Alberta.

When the former banker isn’t enjoying nature, she loves to create and consume chocolate confections. Not necessarily in that order.
