An Eggnog to Die For” by Amy Pershing

Review by Seana Zimmer, adult services library assistant at the Hillsborough branch 

I was gifted this holiday-themed cozy mystery and devoured it in just a couple days. This is the second book from the series, a Cape Cod Foodie Mystery. It was everything a small paperback cozy should be: small town setting, amateur sleuth dating a law enforcement officer, surprise murder, people with long-hidden secrets, and well-meaning parents. A cute name for the dog (Diogi, pronounced Dee – oh – Gee, like D-O-G) adds another touch of whimsy. I have already placed a hold on the first book “A Side of Murder,” and I suggest that anyone who enjoys New England settings and amateur investigators should read both of these SCLSNJ books!
