Christmas in Connecticut is definitely going to be a white Christmas, as blizzards seem to be occurring as regularly as cookie exchanges.

One of Mitch Berger’s neighbors, the live-in lover of Mitch’s running partner, is found dead of an apparent drug overdose and it looks like suicide – but Mitch isn’t so sure. And someone is stealing packages from people’s mailboxes but the local postmaster doesn’t want to call in the feds just yet. But these aren’t really Mitch’s problems – he, after all, is a movie critic not a cop. The cop is Mitch’s lady-love Desiree Mitry, State Resident Trooper.

Although David Handler’s mysteries are occasionally dark, there is an underlying spirit of lightness in them. The two principle characters are wonderfully drawn and their relationship is one of the highlights of the series. They have two different but complementary approaches to solving crime and their romance has its peaks and valleys just like the rest of the human race.

The writing and plotting, as usual, are top-notch. These books must sell enough copies to remain being published in hard cover, but the author’s name isn’t on the list of top-ten mystery writers. That’s a shame because his books are terrific and I always look forward to reading them. I can’t figure out, however, how the title fits the book, but it grabbed my attention on the library shelf and that may be all that’s necessary. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Three blizzards have blanketed the village in forty inches of snow. Bryce Peck, Mitch's blue-blooded neighbor out on Big Sister Island, has just been found dead of a drug overdose. Young Kylie Champlain has slammed her car head-on into an office building after she's caught trying to shoplift a pair of Ugg boots. And a grinch has taken to stealing the mail from Hank Merrill's postal route, which happens to be the main route through the historic district. Stealing the U.S. mail is a serious federal crime, but Des soon discovers that she's onto something much bigger: a black-market prescription drug gang with ties to organized crime. And now a fourth blizzard is on its way. And so is another murder. And, somehow, the man in her life has managed to land himself smack dab in the middle of the whole mess. Not to mention that he's in way over his head with Josie Cantro, the beautiful and treacherous life-coach who just may be responsible for it all. If Des doesn't act fast, this will truly be a Christmas to remember---but for all of the wrong reasons.… (more)
