Book Review: Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs

Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs opens with Juniper Holiday overseeing the preparations for her Thanksgiving dinner party.  When the head police detective face plants into his food and dies, Juniper has to think fast.

The second edition of Leighann Dobbs Juniper Holiday Cozy Mystery Series definitely helped put me in the mood for the Thanksgiving holiday.  It's the first time in a long while that I've actually looked forward to it.

Like the first book in the series, Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) is a quick, fun read, and I've come to love the main character even more if that's even possible, and I really enjoy Juniper's love/hate relationship with Detective Mallard.  What's more is that I foresee her goddaughter, Victoria, and Detective Mallard becoming an item in the near future.

This book reminded me a little of the television show Ghosts and little bit of the book/television series The Vampire Diaries.  You'll see what I mean if you read the book.  Figuring out the murderer and motive in Thanksgiving Dinner Death took me a little longer this time, and I felt like a bit of a dunce because the clues were all there.

Four out of five stars is what I gave Thanksgiving Dinner Death (Juniper Holiday, #2) by Leighann Dobbs.  I will definitely read the next book in the series called Who Slayed The Santas? (Juniper Holiday, #3), which has an expected publication date of December 15, 2022.
