By the Chimney With Care

By the Chimney With Care is a holiday crime story collection edited by Tony Burton. The anthology offers a little for everyone - murder, nostalgia, hauntings. Herschel Cozine kicks off the collection with "The Plight Before Christmas," a crime-ridden takeoff of "The Night Before Christmas." "Popcorn for Christmas" by Debra Gray De Neoux & O'Neil De Noux takes the reader to New Orleans for a sad, lonely story. Readers of Jasper Fforde will appreciate "Murder in Toddler Town" by Rob Rosen. Gary R. Hoffman's Christmas story is haunting. The entire collection of stories of crime during the holidays is a gift to the reader, introducting authors that might be unfamiliar. The authors and publisher are also making an additional holiday present. All proceeds from this enjoyable little collection benefit Toys for Tots.

The holiday season is such a busy time that reading often falls by the wayside. This appropriate collection will offer short, appropriate breaks during the hecticness of the season. By the Chimney With Care will keep you in the holiday spirit.

I'm glad you liked By the Chimney With Care, Lesa. I also loved Margaret Fenton's story, "Noel."

I'm glad the book is getting some attention and hope we raise some money for Toys for Tots.
