I am so sorry with myself that I have not taken the time to read any of the other books by this author. I will be remedying that soon. This was the twenty fourth book in this series with Andy Carpenter but I did not need to read the other books to get who the characters were. I love the wry humor that is used throughout. These are great characters. This is a definite read for any one. I received a copy of this book from Minotaur for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a five out of five stars.
Christmas has come early to the town of Paterson, New Jersey, in the form of a snowstorm that dumps two feet of snow on the ground. Lawyer Andy Carpenter likes snow—white Christmas and all that—but it can cause problems for the walks he takes his dogs on every day.
When Andy’s golden retriever, Tara, goes to play in the snow and instead discovers a body, Andy ends up on the phone with the local newspaper editor. The murder victim is Mayor Alex Oliva, who had an infamous relationship with the newspaper. Last year a young reporter published an expose, and Oliva had him fired for libel. Now, the young reporter—and prime suspect —is in need of a lawyer.
Andy agrees to take the case, though it’s not looking good this holiday season. The evidence is piling up faster than the snow in Best in Snow, the next Christmas mystery in the bestselling Andy Carpenter series from David Rosenfelt.
