I really liked the stories in Christmas Cozy Mystery Multi-Author Collection. They all have female characters who are determined to solve murders and find killers even though the police are also looking to solve the crimes.
The writers are very illustrative creating entire worlds for their audience to get lost in. Every aspect of these novels is fully developed in a manner that you can’t help but picture. They are simultaneously exciting, suspenseful, and emotional. Oh, and add in some humor, too.
The book is a great read and each story definitely captures the reader in the story line, but that wouldn't work if the authors didn't have good characters. These amateur sleuths are smart and determined women who do whatever they have to do in order to find the murderer.
