    Synopsis:  It's funny, it's family, it's a Zak and Zoe Christmas Mystery.

    A reindeer invasion, baby on the way, small-town decked out for the holidays, and a killer on the loose, all come together in this fun and heartwarming Christmas Cozy Mystery.

    Review:  Another great story in this series! As usual, Zac has gone all out with the Christmas decorations, including getting 8 reindeer for the celebration in town. Zoe is 9 months pregnant, and missing Zac, who has had to fly to Paris to care for his mother who was involved in a suspicious accident there.

    Meanwhile, an old friend of Zoe's is found dead (a body she didn't stumble upon for once!) and while she wants to find the killer, she also wants to protect baby Catherine, so she takes a less active role in this case, generally taking someone else along when she is talking to possible suspects. 

    Along with trying to solve the murder, she is worried about getting the 8 reindeer rounded up again before Zac gets home...and concerned that the baby will come before then as well.

    I love this series, and I enjoy the changes which seem to be on the horizon for this family. I have a feeling Alex is going to start taking a more active role in solving cases, as she did a fabulous job in this one.

    Can't wait to see what book #28 has to offer!!

    About the author
    91 DWAjd WBj L SY200Kathi lives with her husband, kids, grandkids, and dogs in beautiful Lake Tahoe. When she isn't writing, Kathi likes to read (preferably at the beach or by the fire), cook (preferably something with chocolate or cheese,) and garden (planting and planning not weeding). She also enjoys spending time on the water when she's not hiking, biking, or snowshoeing, the miles of desolate trails surrounding her home. 
    Kathi uses the mountain setting in which she lives, along with the animals (wild and domestic) that share her home, as inspiration for her cozy mysteries.
