Review: Murder on the First Day of Christmas

Murder on the First Day of Christmas - Billie Thomas

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Chloe and her mother, Amanda were interior designers whose clients began dieing during the holidays. Amanda decided it was their duty to figure out who the killer was.

From the beginning there was laugh out loud humor with the introduction of Lady Chablis the male dog and his kidnapping ways through the end with Amanda being upset about Chloe's underwear. The humor was clean and vastly entertaining.

There was one thing that really bugged me. I am good with pushing your families buttons. I am aware it happens and is often expected. My problem came when every time Amanda and Chloe were in a scene together one of them would do something to annoy the other one. It was something different
almost every time. Examples include Chloe having dirty glasses and Amanda commenting on Chloe being single.

The mystery was well thought through. There were clues from the start, but it wasn't completely obvious who the murderer or the motive was. I was pleasantly surprised it took me as long as it did to figure out who had done it.
