Publisher's Summary

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 she's identified him as rival businessman Donald Baxter. That is, until he's found stabbed to death at Maggie's workplace. And Maggie and her loved ones become top suspects.

The Crozats quickly establish alibis, but Maggie's 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 Noël.

Struggled with narration

I had a hard time finishing this book. I really enjoy the characters and storyline, but the new narrator was hard to get used to. I felt the gal they used for the first two books in this series felt more authentic. Many of the characters just sounded whiny. I'm not sure if I will continue the series through audible or not.

Great book - but needed the original reader

Loved the book but disappointed it was not read by Mrs. Meredith- as the first two books were. Totally threw off the “authenticity” of the Cajun language/accents. Just couldn’t get into as much as the first two because of the reader. But I love the author and the story. Just disappointed with the reader.

Why did they change the narrator???

I love these characters but miss the previous narrator- it’s PeliCAN not like the bird. Not sure if I will continue the series in audible may have to actually read them

Dissapointing Performance Change

I do not usually review anything online at all but especially bad reviews, however i felt that this was bad enough to warrant my thoughts. I was really dissapointed in the change of performer for the 3rd book of the series. The series is based in Louisiana and the actress doesnt do the accent justice. She also didnt read or listen to the first 2 books in the series to get a feel for the characters. very dissapointed that she doesnt even pronounce the name of the town where it is based correctly. i will not be finishing this series on audible but will be buying the digital books and will finish the series that way. the series itself is intriquing and catches my attention. i just wish meredith mitchell would have been able to record the entire series.

Not Impressed with the Narration

The book is on par with the previous two. The characters evolve due to circumstances, as they should. I believe the one thing that kept me from enjoying this book as much as the others is the change in narrator. The previous narrator had a strong voice lending the heroine a strength of spirit. The new narrator is soft-spoken for every character, does not do as well adjusting her voice for the various characters, and pronounces words differently than we learned to expect in the previous books. For example, the name of the town is pronounced peliCAN; not pelican like the bird. This distinction is made very clear in the first book and the pronunciation is a point of pride with the characters. However, with the new narrator, it is disregarded. I most likely will not purchase any more of the audiobooks for this series since the new narrator reads for the next few books. I think I will enjoy the books much better if I read them myself.

Story great, Narrator not so much

I love the characters and storyline but the new narrator does not do as good a job as the narrator from the first few books. Her pronunciations were not very well done.

Bring back the original narrator!

Please redo with original narrator. This one seems out of touch with storyline. Blah
