I have  been anticipating this new series and let me tell you it will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Now let me begin by telling you that Violet didn’t intend to visit Holiday Junction but a turn of events finds her stuck in the town during a St Patrick’s  Day celebration. I loved her adventure on the plane where she was lucky enough to be seated next to a proud grandma. She talked so much I thought Violet would through herself out of the plane to get away from her. 

  Violet’s brilliant idea to go to the bathroom to get away from chatty granny ended up by her  being the lucky  winner of finding  a dead body. Maybe this will be her big break into getting a spit on the big news station where is she suppose to go interview at. I laughed so hard as Violet is desperately trying to do a news bulletin on her phone not knowing she looked like someone from a horror movie. So much for her perfect hair and makeup. 

Violet is now stuck in this quaint little town while the local police investigate the murder. Talk about crazy town well that is where Violet is right now. Wait till you find out who the mayor is. What in the world is wrong with this town anyway? With a collection of fun characters like Rhett and Fern, Violet is in for the adventure of her life trying to solve murders that keep occurring. I have to say the town sounds fun. Who wouldn’t want to be in a town or village as they call it where the holidays are over the top fun? 

The author has created a new series that has everything from parades, a questionable mayor to murders. With Violet on the job as the snoopy news reporter there are plenty of laughs as she unravels the mystery in this town where holidays are shared by all. 

I received a copy of this book from the author. The review is my own opinion.
