About the book:

When sabotage threatens the Rudin Sugar Factory, Detective Jasper Hollock believes this will be his first real case. But dear Mr. Rudin—the only father Jasper has ever known—holds a different assignment for his private investigator.
“I’ve struck a deal with God, Jasper, and you’re my angel.”
Mr. Rudin charges Jasper to build a “case” of reasons for his employer to continue his life. If he fails, Mr. Rudin will end it in suicide on Christmas night.
As the incidents at the factory become life threatening, Jasper’s attempts at dissuading Mr. Rudin prove futile. Time is ticking. Jasper must solve both cases by Christmas before Mr. Rudin and the company are dragged to perdition.

My Take:

I've enjoyed Ms. Schamel's books in the past, and this new one did not disappoint. I liked the cozy mystery feel which is perfect for this time of the year, it also reminded me of A Christmas Carol.
I can't explain what it was, but the way it read I felt like I had stepped back in time and as I read it I saw scenes from the movie A Christmas Carol.

My Bottom Line:

Jasper is a quirky hero, and Ms. Schamel keeps you guessing through the entire story which is necessary since it is a mystery. The inspirational thread is there but not preachy or overwhelming. I recommend this book not only for during the Christmas season, but whenever you'd like to curl up with a cozy easy to read mystery.
