Shakespeare's Christmas by Charlaine Harris

First sentence:

"My situation was as surreal as one of those slo-mo nightmares Hollywood uses to pad B movies."


"Even in a sleepy Arkansas town, the holidays can be murder.

Lily Bard is going home for the holidays. More comfortable in baggy sweats than bridesmaid's frills, Lily isn't thrilled about attending her estranged sister's wedding. She has moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas, to start a new life, cleaning houses for a living, trying to forget the violence that once nearly destroyed her. Now she's heading back to home and hearth--just in time for murder.

The town's doctor and nurse have been bludgeoned to death at the office. And Lily's detective boyfriend suddenly shows up at her parents' door. Jack Leeds is investigating an eight-year-old kidnapping and the trail leads straight to Lily's hometown. It just might have something to do with the murders...and her sister's widowed fiancé. With only three days before the wedding, Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister commits...marriage!"

My thoughts:

Good mystery. I liked seeing Lily interact with her family and using her cleaning skills to gather information for her boyfriend Jack. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Shakespeare's Trollop.
