This was a fun read. A friend calls it "fluff" which it is but it is entertaining and a quick read too.

Jessie Morton works, at times, at a Renaissance Faire, while also working on her master's degree at Columbia. This Christmas season she is to be an apprentice to the Toy Maker aka Father Christmas. Like so many other mystery series protagonists, Jessie always seems to be where the bodies are and this story is no exception. And, she wants to help solve the murder, even though her boyfriend Chase and Detective Almond want her to stay away. After the murder, other lesser attacks occur but are they all related in some way? There are a number of suspects in the story, including a King and a Queen who is quite full of herself and the baby she is about to have. Joyce Lavene manages to bring both humor and believable characters together in a great way. The reader also learns just how hard it is to bring a Renaissance Faire together, especially a year-round one, such as this one. I would like to read other books in this series when my stack of "waiting" books grows smaller.
