In the Heart of Windy Pines by Holly Tierney-Bedord ~ My Thoughts and a Giveaway! #InTheHeartOfWindyPines

In the Heart of Windy Pines by Holly Tierney-Bedord
Publication date: November 24th 2019
Genres: Adult, Cozy Mystery

From the author of Kindle Unlimited All-Star winner Sweet Hollow Women comes a new novella featuring characters from Murder at Mistletoe Manor, Carnage at the Christmas Party, and The Port Elspeth Jewelry Making Club!

Klarinda Snow is the innkeeper of Mistletoe Manor in beautiful, remote, Windy Pines, Idaho, where she brings her unique brand of hospitality to the tiny mountain town.

When she finds her inn unexpectedly fully booked on a snowy Tuesday night in November, it brings back memories of a tragedy years before. Before she knows what hit her, she and her trusty team of employees (Myrtle, Pierre, and her new night manager, Josephine), have found themselves back at the task of solving another mystery at Mistletoe Manor!

While this book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novella, if you plan to read the books in the Windy Pines Mystery series or The Port Elspeth Jewelry Making Club, it’s highly recommended you read those first, as this book contains spoilers that could affect your ability to enjoy them.


My thoughts about In the Heart of Windy Pines ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"At first, Klarinda thought she was seeing a toppled-over snowman."

I have fallen in love with this Windy Pines series and with Holly's stories in general. In the past few days, I have read all of the books connected with this series. I love the fun, somewhat quirky characters and can't wait to see what they are up to next.

Klarinda just wants to run her inn and enjoy a nice quiet life, but that's kind of hard to do when dead bodies always seem to turn up. Sound like a hoot? It definitely is!  

Holly is a fairly new-to-me author but I have discovered that I really like her storytelling style. She has now been added to my must-read list of authors.

Pick up the Windy Pines series if you're looking for a delightful, fun mystery—you will not be disappointed!
