Tidings of Murder and Woe by: Cathy Spencer The book is about Anna Nolen an administrative assistant to Dr. Magdalena Lewis in the Kinesiology Department at Calgary's Chinook University. Anna has had a bad year so far her ex-husband was murdered in the spring and she was the top suspect. And another murderaround Halloween. Julia Moreland owner of Westmore Resources an oil comapny and Golden Farm Fertilizer has been murdered by water hemlock poisoning, is the step mother to Warren, Magdalena's boyfriend. Latona Taylor Julia's personal assistant is also murdered. Magdalena asks Anna for her help during the investigation and Anna tells her no, but when Warren is arrested for Julia's murder a distraught Magdalena comes to Anna again who then agrees to help. Almost everyone in this book becomes a suspect at some point in the book. The suspect list grows with almost every turn of the page. If you like who done its with lots of twists and turns you should grab a copy if this book. And at the end there is a tasty looking recipe for Hello Dolly Squares.

This is book 3 in the Anna Nolan series and the only one I have read so far. All the books appear to be standalone but I think you would get the full effect reading the whole set. It took me a bit to catch up with who's who because there are a lot of people in the book.. Once I got into it though, I loved the story line and had to keep reading. Its one of those books where you are sure you know who did it and then you change your mind about a dozen times. Basically everyone could have done it, poor Julia was surrounded by some not very nice people. Now I need to go back and read the first 2 books so I can see how Anna got into solving mysteries. Other than the sheer volume of characters, I enjoyed this book quite a bit.

I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased feedback.
