Let me start by saying that I love reading Christmas books, even the predictable ones. The plot of this story is different from the standard Christmas romance but in such a good way. I enjoyed the mystery element entwined with a solid cast of small town characters.

I loved it! If you want to be immersed in a magical Christmas story, this is the book for you. I loved every enchanting description and the mystery kept me guessing until the end. I loved Ali and her warm, motherly, but “guide like” landlord Gina.

“Christmas on Union Street” made me feel warm and cozy. I loved the characters, the setting, and the story. The characters stayed with me long after I read the book. They felt familiar and wonderfully life-like. The main character is one I would love to see again. Kathleen Cranidge paints a clear scene and I was drawn in as if it was a movie. I am not a fan of mysteries, but found myself pulled into the drama. I have recommended it to my friends.

This story is a delight to read. It doesn't have to be Christmas to read this cozy mystery. When The main character moves to a new residence, there is an eclectic mixture of boarders and a keen pipe-smoking landlady and a mysterious room. I liked the characters and dialogue. Cranidge has done a fine job.

4.5 stars! I really enjoy a good mystery and this story pleasantly surprised me to approach the mystery from a different angle. Plus the atmosphere is everything good and comforting about Christmas and snowy winter. Make yourself a warm drink and settle in because you won't want to put it down.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a easy read and I looked forward to picking it up each time. The characters are well developed and likable and the plot twists with a mystery, romance and christmas theme. A delight! I hope the next book comes out soon!

Kathleen really brought you right into their lives. You feel the cold without winter boots, the warmth of the fire and the depth of the characters. Look forward to the next one in the series!
