WREATH BETWEEN THE LINES is the seventh book in the Cookbook Nook Mystery series by Daryl Wood Gerber. The front cover of the book draws the reader in with its coziness and I love the Christmas feeling it imbues. The author effectively captures and continues the Christmas-y feeling throughout the entire book despite some of the residents of Crystal Cove acting more Scrooge than Santa. Protagonist Jenna Hart co-owns the bookstore and bakery, Cookbook Nook, with her Aunt Vera. The Cookbook Nook an ...more

This is a great addition to the CookBook Nook series by Daryl Wood Gerber. Jenna Hart is back with the rest of the crew in the seventh of the series. I love reading holiday cozies and this one was great from how the victim was killed to whodunit, it was a great page-turner and hard to put down! Love seeing how Jenna continues to grow and develop as a character and the descriptions make you feel like you are there. I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a great holiday mystery!

I just love Jenna and the gang. Jenna's sister comes for a visit with her husband and daughter. While she is spending time with her niece, Jenna's family friend, Jake, comes to get her because his friend has been murdered. Jenna is pretty sure that the intended victim was really Jake and she knows that she has to figure out who the killer is before they strike again. When the killer tries to scare Jenna off of the investigation, she knows she is out of time.
