Have Yourself a Deadly Little Christmas
(Year-Round Christmas Mystery)
by Vicki Delany
I highly recommend Have Yourself a Deadly Little Christmas because it’s got a variety of well-written characters, a cozy Christmas town, and a puzzling mystery!
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
Have Yourself A Deadly Little Christmas is a delightful story filled with engaging characters, a Christmas miracle moment or two, and a merry little mystery. It will be so nice to visit America’s Christmas Town again next year. A great tradition.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
In Have Yourself a Deadly Little Christmas, Vicki Delany takes readers back to the charming town of Rudolph with a plot fraught with drama – and not just at the theater! I look forward to my next visit on the pages of another Year-Round Christmas Mystery!
~Reading is my Superpower
I recommend this book (and series!) for fans of cozy mysteries, and especially anyone who enjoys a small town or holiday setting.

Four stars! Have Yourself a Deadly Little Christmas by Vicki Delany is a wonderfully written mystery that kept me guessing. I highly recommend this book and the series to all. It is a fantastic mystery set in the time before Christmas.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
I really liked this Christmas cozy that can be enjoyed year-round, all the laughs and being in a Christmas town. I give this book a four out of five stars.
A Christmas murder with theatrical flair, HAVE YOURSELF A DEADLY LITTLE CHRISTMAS is a holiday treat good year-round.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Rudolph is brimming with holiday charm. It is a town that I would love to visit (do some shopping, take a sleigh ride, enjoy hot cocoa by the fire while reading a book).
~The Avid Reader
I love the setting of this book, who wouldn’t love a town that is ready for Christmas all year. The plot of this one was well thought out and the story flowed really well. This is one of my favorite series and this installment did not disappoint me. There were twists and turns in this and the motive for the murder was never really clear until the reveal. I was totally caught off guard by the reveal and was surprised by the ending. I look forward to more in this series.

Have Yourself a Deadly Little Christmas is the 6th book in the Year-Round. The mystery was well-plotted with enough suspects to keep me guessing. Finding the killer and the motivation for it, was a great story and I do recommend it. I definitely plan to go back and read the books I missed in this series.

It’s beginning to look a lot like murder in the sixth installment of this charming cozy mystery series, perfect for fans of Donna Andrews and Jacqueline Frost.
It’s the beginning of December in Rudolph, New York, America’s Christmas Town, and business is brisk at Mrs. Claus’s Treasures, a gift and décor shop owned by Merry Wilkinson. The local amateur dramatic society is intensely preparing a special musical production of A Christmas Carol. But it’s not a happy set, as rivalries between cast and crew threaten the production.
Tensions come to a head when a member of the group is found dead shortly after a shopping excursion to Mrs. Claus’s Treasures. Was someone looking to cut out the competition? Everyone in the cast and crew is a potential suspect, including Aline, Merry’s mother, and Merry’s shop assistant Jackie O’Reilly, who was desperate for a starring role.
It could be curtains for Christmas—and for Merry—unless the killer can be ferreted out of the wings.
