Comments We Wish You a Merry Murder

  • Chrystyna

    We Wish You a Merry Murder by Valerie Wolzien - OKThe third of my tea and mystery sweepstakes winnings and perfect timing to read it.Set in an upmarket town in Connecticut (which I presume is somewhere near New York and is commuter belt for rich business men), the ladies of the town are running around preparing for Christmas and doing the rounds of the social engagements.It is Kelly Knowlson's first Christmas post divorce, not helped by her ex, Evan, not only remarrying but returning to the town [...]


  • Teri

    I absolutely LOVE this book - I read it EVERY year at Christmas time(last year I read it twice ;-)


  • Gail

    Love Valerie Wolzien. So sad her publishers decided to stop her books!


  • Pam

    I'm not much good at reviews but I did enjoy this book more than the first two entries in the series. This book moved swiftly with clues dropped all over but the ending was a big surprise. The conversations about clues were not nearly so prolonged as in the first two books.Susan Henshaw is a housewife in suburban Connecticut getting ready for the Christmas holidays. Her mother-in-law arrives a week early with a boyfriend in tow and a crazy fad diet. I loved the descriptions of all the Christmas [...]


  • Cynthia

    This book was published in the 90's. Reading a cozy about rich suburbanites was a nice change of pace from all the cozies that are published today, where the economy is bad and half the book is about how the protagonist/protagonist's small business is struggling financially. The mystery wasn't bad either. I'd read others in the series.


  • Marty

    Another despondent woman who is sure her husband will return to her…meanwhile said husband has married another woman and now lives in the house behind his old house. -----And he winds up dead in his first wife’s home. I never really connected to the people in this novel and really didn’t care what happened to them.


  • Teri

    This is the first book I've read by Valerie Wolzien, and I enjoy her writing style. I can just sit back and relax and not have to think too hard about the mystery because I know Susan Henshaw will work everything out by the end.


  • ChrisGA

    Typical cozy with housewife Susan as sleuth along with her best friend Katherine who is an ex-cop now another housewife. A man murdered while hosting a Christmas partybut then the body disappears---Who killed him--exwife or current wife—or one of group of friends at party.


  • Sissy BP

    This is a fun Christmas mystery. All the elements are there - shopping, cooking, eating, parties, Christmas concerts, family, celebrating - with a murder thrown into the mix. I first read this book about 25 years ago and it's still a favorite.


  • Linda

    This was one of the best Susan Henshaw books I've read. Not sure exactly what I liked about it so much. I never would have guessed the ending in a million years and I did enjoy the old gathering of the suspects at the end.


  • Sheila

    Suburbanite Kelly Knowlson (from Hancock, CT) works to solve the murder of her neighbor Evan, whose body has since disappeared. In between all the holiday shopping, baking and parties, she tries to prove Evan's ex-wife did not commit the murder.


  • Sarah "Kat"

    This was a fast read. The setting in CT was rich and snobby but imaginably beautiful. The women characters were such upper class snobs and their jocking to be was at times annoying. Overall I enjoyed the writing enough that I would pick up another by this authore.


  • Jane

    I love this series and reread it often. It is at its strongest in this book and it's one of my favorite Christmas books; always gets me in a holiday mood.


  • Roberta

    For me the one star was a stretch. I hated everything about this book and skimmed it at the speed of light.


  • Beth Harper

    See blog entry at bethlikesbooks/20


  • Julia

    This is another of my holiday favorites - I'm a big fan of the little scene-setting details in murder mysteries and this one is a delight.


  • Scoozer

    Very simple cozy. It was dated, but I mostly just found it annoying.


  • Meikoningin

    Really do not like the busy housewife-in-the-suburbs sleuth kind of stories. Read it in the original english.


  • Daelith

    Yawn!! This books puts me to sleep every time I pick it up. 60 pages is as far as I got.
