All Trixie Matkowski wants for Christmas is a break—just not the broken leg she got after slipping on some ice. With Sandy Harbor alive in the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s the busiest time of the year at Trixie’s Silver Bullet Diner. There are millions of things to do, including cater the town’s annual Christmas pageant and community dinner with some delicious holiday comfort food.

But the festivities turn into a bit of a turkey after Liz Fellows, the director of the pageant, is found with Trixie’s butcher knife in her back. Now Trixie must help the police arrest the scary gentleman—or lady—guilty of the crime if she hopes to get herself off the naughty list.

Review of It’s A Wonderful Knife

Review (4.75 Stars):  Hands down, this is one of my favorite mystery series to date and It’s a Wonderful Knife is in my top five favorite books this year.  Trixie starts off this book by having a horrible accident on the ice and breaks her leg before her busy holiday season.  She has so much to do and with a little help from her friends, she will accomplish everything that she has planned.  But things turn deadly, when the director of the Christmas pageant is found dead with Trixie’s knife sticking out of the body and Trixie must now add finding a killer to her already busy list.  Trixie soon learns that there was much more to this case than she once thought and she better find the killer fast before she becomes the next name on their list.

It’s A Wonderful Knife was a deliciously entertaining mystery that had me laughing out loud through most of the story. I absolutely love the crime-fighting duo of Trixie and ACB and I always want to spend more time reading about their crazy antics to find the killer.  This series keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait to see what hilarious scenarios they find themselves in next.  This is a mystery series that shouldn’t be missed.
