Publisher's Summary

In this Christmas mystery, lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, are on the beat after a body turns up in the snow and a journalist is the prime suspect.

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 best-selling Andy Carpenter series from David Rosenfelt.

Just didn’t do it for me😟

Loved that Tara and other dog members were involved in this story. All they did though is go for walks and play. Why is Rosenfelt fixated on story lines around the holidays? Fans know that Laurie plays Christmas music starting in October. I think that much of the story was cut and paste from previous novels. Shame on you David. The plot was uninspired and really boring. Story was too long. It was difficult for me to get into the story and care about Bobby. I have come to expect better from Rosenfelt.

Great Book - typical Andy. Book

Comfort food for the soul - lots of twists and turns- complicated at the end. But very clever

Andy is getting tired

It seems the stories are getting repetitive and this one was plain boring!
I am going to miss Andy but he should really start considering retiring.

Love it

Quirky as usual. Great performance by Gardner. Thank you for a cozy read. I thought for sure it would end up being the wife. 🧐

Formulaic yet so enjoyable

Like being with old friends (or family) who keep telling the same story over and over, the Andy Carpenter series is always relaxing and enjoyable for me. I think of it as "comfort food" for depressing times.

These are the same stories over and over

An innocent person is arrested for murder. A dog is involved. Andy proves them innocent. Marcus saves his life a long the way. Come on David Rosenfelt change it up a bit.
