    1. This collection is three short stories all featuring eggnog All of the stories come from current cozy series, so some of the characters and situations will be familiar to readers I will preface my review by letting you know I have only ever read the Leslie Meier series before.Story 1 Eggnog Murder by Leslie MeierWhen a bottle of eggnog, supposedly from the Real Beard Santa Club poisons a woman with a nut allergy, it is shown that the eggnog was made with cashew milk instead of dairy The Santa Cl [...]

    2. This book has three stories in it Eggnog Murder, Death by Eggnog, and Nogged Off I had never heard of any of these authors and was pleased I got to discover them in this book It makes me happy to know I can visit these characters several times over in many other books Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier The Red Beard Santa Club was awesome because I had actually saw a convention in Tampa, FL that had real Santas and my friend s little boy had his picture taken with all the Santas They grew real beards [...]

    3. A great blend of charm, mystery, and Christmas cheer Read this review in its entirety at Fresh Fiction

    4. Dollycas s ThoughtsI will start this review by saying I have read all of Barbara Ross s Maine Clambake Mysteries, I have read many of Leslie s Lucy Stone Mysteries and there are some screaming at me from my To Be Read shelf, and Lee Hollis is a new author to me So I will start my review will Barbara s storyGGED OFF focuses on Julia cleaning out her old apartment in New York since she has decided to stay in Busman s Harbor When she meets her subletting tenant her quick trip to the city gets compl [...]

    5. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Three irresistible holiday mysteries in this anthology are a delight to read and perfect for the season These really hit the spot for me, maybe because it s that wonderful time of year again A joy to read and they will certainly make you think twice before drinking the eggnog My favorite was Nogged Off by Barbara Ross because I just adore the Maine Clambake series featuring Julia Snowden Even if you re not famili [...]

    6. I really enjoyed these 3 short stories I ve read books before by Leslie Meier and Barbara Ross but the Lee Hollis series was new to me All 3 stories centered around eggnog and I liked that 2 out of the 3 came with recipes All of them were series set in Maine which was fun as well to see some of the similarities due to the location.

    7. So I ve actually only read 2 3 of this book because I haven t caught up this far in the Lucy Stone series I did read the Maine Clambake and Hayley Powell stories because I m up to date with those series Although I m not generally a fan of short stories because they leave me wanting I did enjoy both of these I love these series, and these shorts tie in really well to the full length books I ll read the remaining Lucy Stone story once I ve finished 23 in the series.

    8. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book Three deliciously devilish cozies in one All three are well written Christmas shorts of popular cozy series by Leslie Meier, Lee Hollis and Barbara Ross All feature eggnog as a deadly device, and all are full of intrigue, holiday cheer and delicious recipes I realize that after reading 3 stories where eggnog proved very bad for your health, I can t help but crave it now Nogged Off, Barbara Ross contribution to the festive cozy is my favorite, but I m [...]

    9. I used to really love this series because of how the characters aged in real life We ve actually seen Lucy s kids grow up Problem is They haven t become likable people They are shallow, pretentious and snotty This series has also become so preachy in a liberal political kind of way I m just Happy it was a quick read.

    10. I love cozies and I d read two of these authors before so this book appealed to me right off the bat As it turned out, the stories by the authors I was already familiar with were pleasant, if not great, while the new to me author was a huge disappointment Two of the stories were met the anthology s theme and also lived up to their story titles The third one had a peripheral eggnog connection but it was set at Christmas, and there was definitely a murder.Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier It was a he [...]

    11. 4 stelle e mezza al racconto che ho letto, quello di Barbara Ross, perch appartenente all unica serie che sto seguendo delle tre qui presenti.

    12. What a great audiobook containing three cozy mysteries each involving eggnog in some way I have previously read books by Leslie Meir and Barbara Ross so the settings were familiar to me This was the first time reading Lee Hollis and the book fit right in with the other two I loved the mysteries and the sleuths as well as the additional characters This worked out well listening to while doing other tasks as I could easily focus on both the book and the chore Highly recommended to those who like c [...]

    14. Okay, in the interest of full disclosure I have to admit that I hate eggnog, I don t understand the concept of eggnog, and I will never willingly drink eggnog However, my beloved grandmother was a different story She was totally against drinking EXCEPT when she made her, in her mind, famous eggnog for Christmas It had so much bourbon in it that it took on a brownish tint and was only consumed by my grandparents, some of their Eastern Star and Masonic friends, and, unfortunately, my husband who s [...]

    15. Eggnog Murder is comprised of three well written Christmas stories that take place in Maine Eggnog Murder by Leslie Meier, Death by Eggnog by Lee Hollis, and Nogged Off by Barbara Ross and all three stories are awesome These are clean cozy mysteries featuring no gratuitous sex, violence, or foul language and based on the authors popular cozy series All three authors provide enough character background that readers who are new to these series will not feel lost I highly recommend this book.Eggnog [...]

    16. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.Short stories aren t my favorite things to read I am always wanting of the story and when they are bundled with multiple authors, there s a strong change I only know one of the authors This is the case with Eggnog Murder I tried to get through the other stories by Lee Hollis and Barbara Ross, but since they are also part of their own series with regular characters, I was so [...]

    17. I read this book for Barbara Ross I am addicted to her Maine clambake series, and I own them all.I had never read Leslie Meier or Lee Hollis To me their stories seemed a little similar, and I think I enjoyed Lee Hollis novella, Death by Eggnog, better I loved how the library was such a prominent place in the story Barbara Ross did not disappoint, with a chilling murder yet again in her world of Busman s Harbor, Maine Like in another story in this trilogy, Santa arrived by boat and eggnog feature [...]

    18. This was a quick read of 3 short stories by 3 different authors Cozy mysteries all having to do with eggnog In the first story a bottle of eggnog is left for someone but then is taken to the pennysaver and served to guests Someone drinks it and dies Come to find out it wasn t an accident.2nd story is about a librarian that nobody likes and she is given the wrong glass of eggnog to drinke 3rd story is about a woman subletting an apartment and she comes into the life of the person who really holds [...]

    19. A collection of three novellas revolving around murders committed using poisoned eggnog as the means It was intended as a purely escapist read and succeeded on that level, but I found the characters a bit cardboard, with the exception of the title novella by Leslie Meier I did find all the recipes distracting when in audio form, but I probably would have liked them in print.

    20. Our group was seeking a Christmas mystery loaded with holiday spirit and as Lesie Meier usually delivers, we voted for hers Still love her books but wish she d leave politics for the news channels, papers not a cozy mystery platform We read mysteries to escape politics not enter into them.

    21. I really enjoyed story 3 The other 2 were too similar Perhaps when writing a book together, make sure you re not writing the same thing

    22. Synopsis With the fireplace crackling, the tree twinkling, and the carols humming, few things in life are as picture perfect as Christmas in Maine until murder dampens the holiday spirit It must be something in the eggnog GNOG MURDER by LESLIE MEIERWhen a gift wrapped bottle of eggnog allegedly from the Real Beard Santa Club proves to be a killer concoction for a Tinker s Cove local, all Lucy Stone wants for Christmas is to find the murdering mixologist who s stirring up troubleATH BY EGGNOG by [...]

    23. Eggnog Murder Audio CD by Leslie Meier Author , Lee Hollis and Barbara Ross, Narrated by Karen WhiteThree short cozy mysteries all centered around Eggnog The best of the 3 was Nogged Off by Barbara Ross who also writes the Maine Clambake Mysteries series I ve never read any of those but I would definitely give them a try after this sampling Second best was Death by Eggnog by Lee Hollis A pretty good story and worth perhaps seeing what else they ve written They being the brother sister duo of Ric [...]

    24. Cozy Christmas Mysteries hmm, almost seems to be an oxymoron Here we have three short, cozy murder mysteries, each written by differing authors and each involving eggnog makes the upcoming holiday season not as enticing as usual The first tale Eggnog Murder a secret Santa gift left at a house, disguised as a bottle of the famous Real Beard Santa Club brand, is shared by the recipient s wife who refuses to allow her husband to also have a real Santa tummy When someone else drinks the concoction, [...]
