Frosty the Dead Man (Snow Globe Shop Mystery #3) by Christine Husom

This time last year I told you about a most adorable series based in a quaint curiosity shop. I am so happy to say it's time for the next part, Frosty the Dead Man (Snow Globe Shop Mystery #3) by Christine Husom. I hope you took to the time get caught up because this one was just as much fun.

From the back of the book:

A snow globe becomes a murder weapon in the latest cozy mystery from the national bestselling author of Snow Way Out and The Iced Princess.

Mayor Lewis Frost has always been known as Frosty to his friends—not that he has many these days. Controversies swirling around the city council have members wondering if Frosty is trying to snow them. After one councilman storms off in a huff, the mayor turns to curio shop manager Camryn Brooks and asks her to consider taking a seat on the council.

Later, when Cami goes to his office to discuss the proposal, her blood runs cold. She finds Frosty dead, and the very snow globe she sold him earlier that day lies in sparkling shards on his carpet—along with a large diamond. Does the snow globe—which features a peculiar tableau of an armed man and three menacing bears—hold a clue to Frosty’s demise? One way or another, it’s up to Cami to shake things up before the killer’s trail goes cold...

My thoughts:

It was great to be back with Cami and Pinky, and Mark, and Clint. Those are my favorites, but the entire cast is extremely sweet. Well, most of them, there was obviously a killer and few people who were a little frosty as well. I really also like Clint for Cami, he is a well written romance interest with enough quirks to make him endearing.

The mystery was clue based and I solved it! I love when that happens. There was a bit more to it than just a murder and that helped me to figure it out actually. What is really neat is that in the back there is a craft to make a snow globe! I love snow globes and will be making it this holiday season. This will be available December 6th so you still have time to grab the other parts and get caught up if need be.
