Berry the Hatchet by Peg Cochran

Berry the Hatchet (Cranberry Cove #2)

Book two in the Cranberry Cove series. It is now winter in Cranberry Cove and the town is gearing up for the first annual Winter's Walk which is an effort to bring in business between Christmas and spring. The event is to kick off with a sleigh ride and mini parade. Ten minutes before the sleigh is to arrive it instead comes racing down the street led by a scared horse looking empty. Once they get it stopped they find Preston (ironically the new mayor) dead inside with a knife sticking out of his throat. Things get interesting when it is discovered that he was dating Monica's step-mom (dad is divorcing her now) and her mother though neither woman knew about the other. I was dying laughing at the irony that they were both dating the same man which is what happened in their past. Guess they just really like the same kind of man. Of course this has the effect of making both of them suspects in the murder. Monica finds herself investigating whether she wants to or not. She keeps stumbling across clues though it takes her awhile to put it all together and of course she finds herself in danger by the end. I' m loving the new kitten though as it adds quite a bit of cuteness throughout the story. Overall this is an excellent cozy mystery book that keeps the reader entertained until the very last page so it gets 4/5 stars.
