A Cajun Christmas Killing
A Cajun Christmas Killing: A Cajun Country Mystery | Ellen Byron
22 posts | 15 read | 5 to read
Maggie Crozat is back home in bayou country during the most magical time of the year. In Pelican, Louisiana, Christmastime is a season of giant bonfires on the levee, zydeco carols, and pots of gumbo. Except, this year, the Grinch has come to stay at the family-run Crozat Plantation B&B. When he floods travel websites with vicious reviews, Maggie thinks shes identified him as rival businessman Donald Baxter. That is, until hes found stabbed to death at Maggies workplace. And Maggie and her loved ones become top suspects. The Crozats quickly establish alibis, but Maggies boyfriend, Detective Bo Durand, remains under suspicion. With Bo sidelined during the investigation, Maggie finds herself forced to work with an unlikely ally: longtime family enemy Rufus Durand. Her sleuthing uncovers more suspects than drummers drumming, and lands her in the crosshairs of the murderer. The sleigh bells are jingling, and the clock is ticking for Maggie and Rufus, who must catch the killer or it will be the opposite of a Joyeux Nol in A Cajun Christmas Killing, the recipe-stuffed third installment of USA Today bestselling author Ellen Byrons Cajun Country mysteries.

Last week was super busy with night shifts, but I managed to finish these audiobooks while working away! I forgot to post my weekly #WinterGames points, but thanks again to the #WGWordSearch game I brought in a total of 12,595 points for team #MistletoeManiacs! Woohooo! Go team! 💚❤️💚

Well I wasn‘t a fan of this one as much as other Christmas Murder mysteries I just wasn‘t as invested in the characters or the story as much as I wanted to be. It did have tons of words for the word search though!

283 total

Wowiiiiee so many points for #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs @Clwojick

Not having read the two previous books in this series, I really enjoyed this little holiday cozy. Not sure I‘ll try all the recipes, but I definitely want to try the muffuletta frittata. #WinterGames #MistletoeManiacs #WordSearch +2306 pts

Clwojick I finished it this week, and really enjoyed it! 1mo

This was a miss for me. There were way too many characters, especially for audiobook version. The story moved so slowly with a lot of filler, introducing one person after another who emerges as a “suspect” and is then eliminated. Felt repetitive. Christmas vibe only at the very end.

I wanted to love this one but I had a hard time connecting to the characters. It may be that I haven‘t read the other books in the series, but I couldn‘t pass up on the team read for #mistletoemanics and #wintergames. The overall plot was good and I enjoyed reading a cozy mystery amongst all of the fun, romance Christmas books #bookspinbingo #seriesread #averymerrybingo #averymerryreadathon #wintercosy

MidnightBookGirl It's definitely better if you read the first two in the series!

Sad to say I‘m bailing on this one. Just not my jam. But a square off my #bookspinbingo

I just finished this one today but unfortunately it just wasn't for me. I usually love cozy mysteries. However I just couldn't really connect with this one or the characters. #WinterGames2021 #MistletoeManiacs @Clwojick

When I learned this would be one of our buddy reads (and I already read Holidaze), I spent last month reading the first two books in the series, because I hate to read out of order. I really enjoy this cozy series- and I loved that Rufus has redeemed himself. I just really like the characters and the town of Pelican. I wish this had been a little more Christmas-y, but I still enjoyed it! #WinterGames #MistletoeManiacs @Clwojick

Finished the #MistletoeManiacs #TeamBuddyRead. There could have been more festivities and #WGWordSearch words IMHO. There were some twists and turns. But truly, I have never heard of a town having a viewing of Midnight Mass at the Vatican with a bar. That just made me laugh! #144 #BFC21 #CSReadathon #RIF #TistheReadson #Fairytaleathon #Cosyathon #FestiveReadathon #CYO #MerryBookmas #AVeryMerryBingo #Wintercosy #LittenListen #AVeryMerryReadathon

Nice cozy mystery for our team read. Feels like I might need to read some more in the series whenever I need a nice, mellow murder mystery read.

My #WinterGames week one points total is a nice even 2,900 counting in posts, books read, and the word hunt game. Go team #mistletoemaniacs! @Clwojick

Clwojick Amazing job! Way to go! 💚❤️💚 2mo

I‘m fairly new to cozy mysteries and I‘ve not read any others in this series, but I enjoyed it! I really liked Maggie, the MC. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did a great job with the accents!

Clwojick Happy to hear you enjoyed it! It‘s a new to me series as well, and I won‘t lie… I totally chose it because of the bloodhound on the cover. 2mo
