Seaside Cove is a small town. People there like it just the way it is. But there is someone who wants to change it, and as far as the residents are concerned, not for the better. Thorne Waldorf is a person that no one really likes, he is mean and rude. He also has some secrets on some of the residents in town and is trying to blackmail them into getting what he wants from them....their businesses so he can sell them. On a Christmas party some of the people attending all have the same ugly ...more

Alex is not your typical preteen, and sometimes she's too smart for her own good. She is a very likeable character, knows what she wants, and tries her hardest to get things to go her way. She loves her dad wholeheartedly, and wants the best for him. I love how she gets her friends involved in her schemes. This is a great story with mystery, intrigue, and murder. The plot twists and the fast pace kept me glued to this book from beginning to end. Terry Ambrose is a fantastic author, and I highly ...more

Alex is a sweet young lady gets involved trying to solve the mystery at hand. I always enjoy the intrigue involved with reading a Terry Ambrose book. They always keep me glued to the book. I highly recommend this book, as well as all the others written by this author. FYI: I received an ARC for an honest review.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

First of all, I have never read any books in this series, and I honestly had no trouble jumping right in. The author was a master at making sure the reader understood the situations and the characters perfectly. Furthermore, this series is totally family-friendly and is the ideal representation of what a cozy mystery should be. And with the Christmas holidays

“There ain’t never a good time for some things.”

Rick Atwood and his daughter Alex, and his chef Marquetta Weiss continue to run the Seaside Cove Bed and Breakfast in this, the third book in the series. Precocious 10 year old Alex wants her father and Marquette to be more than friends. They may have other things on their mind as Christmas is coming to Seaside Cove.

When three people show up to a holiday party in the same “ugly Christmas Sweater” gifted by Thorne Waldorf, one of the two lawyers in

(A Seaside Cove Bed & Breakfast Mystery #3)

Christmastide can be a real killer; and not always because of family get-togethers, overeating, and last-minute purchasing stress. Sometimes a grinch is murdered, just because the time is right. But often, suspicion falls on the innocent, and somebody's got to investigate.

Alex (Alexandra), a smart and clever ten-year-old, loves life in Seaside Cove at the Bed-and-Breakfast her dad now owns.

This is 3rd installment in the delightful Seaside Cove series. This is a cozy murder mystery series, with few twists and turns that will keep you guessing. They can be read alone, but more fun to read in order.
Rick tries to protect Alex, his daughter, by blocking her efforts to investigate and she finds 'loopholes' to getting involved. She's quite bright and brings a unique insight to his cases. Alex is loveable and really does want to help. The growing relationship between Rick and Marquetta is

It’s hard to find a mystery that I don’t like, but this one was terrible. If I weren’t reading it for a book club, I would have put it down after 10 pages. It was poorly written, corny, trite. It lacked cohesion. The plot had little to do with the title and was neither logical nor realistic. Character descriptions were adolescent and redundant (“his face began to redden”, “she raised her eyebrows”, “a tear trickled down her cheek”).

My book club doesn’t often reach a unanimous consensus, but

If you have read any of my reviews, you know that I am a retired educator. One of the different age groups I worked with was the same as Alex, Sasha, and Robbie. It was also my favorite because in those days they told it as they saw it. Keep you eyes on these three! I thoroughly enjoyed this story and highly recommend the book.

This book is part of A Seaside Cove Bed & Breakfast Mystery and I liked it. I read it in one sitting and liked how Terry put this mystery together. Terry hit the ball out to the short outfield which resulted in a three base hit!

A bit cheesy like a Hallmark movie but enough to get me in the Christmas spirit.

Excellent character development and emotions brought to life thru words made me fall into this book to visit Seaside Cove, solve a murder and deal with a visit from Alex’s estranged mother.
