Christmas week sparkles with holiday decorations, sweet potato pie, lively tourists, and murder…

Estes Park is a wonderland of twinkling lights and softly falling snow, and Winifred Page wants nothing more than to snuggle in the mystery room with Watson at her feet—after all, Katie’s pastries are tempting pieces of heaven, especially beside a warm fire. But Christmas is fa

The joys of Christmas

Terrific as always. Watson is as loveable, grumpy and obstinate as ever whilst the human characters are, full, rich and varied. I also adored the screaming rabbit - I wonder what his story is?
Christmas is coming fast and as families come together and old friends meet up tensions boil over. With attitudes from high school now firmly entrenched in their adult persona. When one of latest to arrive is murdered in the magic shop and Susan's brother is arrested, she is shocked wh

Christmas in Estes Park is no holiday for poor Fred and Watson. Naturally she stumbles over a murder and ends up in a truce of sorts with Susan Green of all people! It’s a pretty good romp once again, with a plethora of suspects and an annoying bunny. It was the first time I guessed the killer right away but I can’t explain why I picked them before the murder even happened! These stories are always a pleasant break and highly enjoyable. It’s never a hardship revisiting the characters, especially ...more

Aaah! What a way to leave a book! Absolutely loved it and can't wait for the next! I once again didn't figure out who the killer is and was no where near close to being right this time. This one was a huge shocker and I didn't see it coming.

Shelves: 2018, cozy-mystery
This is another delightful visit to Estes Park. Each book has me feeling as though I’m visiting with friends. The mystery in this book is well crafted and had me guessing until the final reveal. I don’t want to give anything away other than to say this is an enjoyable mystery well worth reading.

This year Fred’s Cozy Corgi bookstore is carefully and warmly decorated for the holidays, busy with tourists and locals shopping and enjoying Katie’s pastry offerings. Fred goes from shop to shop, with Watson accompanying her (of course) as she invites the merchants to a party at the Cozy Corgi and explains a coupon book she and Katie are suggesting for the stores to participate in. Remembering the difference between this year and last year, Fred knows that the town and the wonderfully diverse, ...more

Malevolent Magic

I enjoyed the book but was a bit disappointed that I figured out who was the murderer early in the book.
That said, the story was well written and we continue to learn bits and pieces about the characters.
I will definitely read the next book!

As always, I loved Mildred's fictional town, her characters, and her plots. I figured it out as soon as I met one of the characters, but that didn't ruin it for me.

May Watson live forever!

Malevolent Magic

This series just gets better with every new release! And I’m excited about Fred and Leo’s possibilities.the whole town has grown on me and I can’t wait to see what happens next. And I figured out who the killer actually was before Fred, but that didn’t change my enjoyment!

I'm in love with this series!

Being a mystery reader and a dog lover, the Cozy Corgi series keeps me wanting more. I'm so happy I found this author.

Holidays with Fred, Watson and gang...sign me up! Fred can't seem to escape getting sucked into another murder investigation from the most unexpected direction. As we get further into the series, we really are comfortable with the different personalities in Estes and even the loyalties between certain parties. But with every story, I feel like Fred learns something new about herself or what she originally thought she knew about her neighbors and friends. It really makes every story different and ...more

A Christmas themed murder mystery, so fun!

Another really cozy mystery at Christmastime. It's such a relaxing, enjoyable read. Once again, I didn't guess the right suspect. I love this little mountain town and all the characters. I have a corgi myself, so Watson's antics are quite familiar to me. I highly recommend this series!

Another fun addition to the series. The characters come to life with each book and in this one you learn even more about them. The plot had just the right amount of twists while letting you figure out the culprit as you read along. And the recipe at the end is another keeper. Love these books.

I absolutely love all of Mildred’s characters in the cozy corgi series. I was surprised by the killer and the book was an enjoyable read as always. I loved the cliffhanger and I am looking forward to reading the next.

Best one yet! Love this wonderful cozy mystery series! Great introduction and interactions between characters. Beautiful descriptions of scenery and characters. I definitely will read all of Mildred Abbott's other books. Fabulous writer; don't miss any of these books!

Another great story!

If you love a fun mystery, quirky characters and a (best of all!) clever, if a little grumpy, corgi sidekick, you have to read this book. Better yet, read from the first book and you’ll be looking forward to the next adventure too!

As all the others i enjoyed this story. I did find some of the characters a little ridiculous and hard to keep up with whose who.

Reading the Cozy Corgi series is pretty much all you need to know about Mildred. In real life, she’s obsessed with everything she writes about: Corgis, Books, Cozy Mountain Towns, and Baked Goods. She’s not obsessed with murder, however. At least not at her own hands (nor paid for… no contract killing here). But since childhood, starting with Nancy Drew, trying to figure out who-dun-it has played ...more
