Holly and Homicide by Leslie Caine

This is #7 in her Domestic Bliss series by Leslie Caine (AKA Leslie O'Kane).
It’s Christmastime in sleepy Snowcap, Colorado, and the town is up in arms. The venerable Goodwin Estate has been sold to enterprising out-of-towners and is getting a major makeover just in time for the holidays. Interior designers Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan walked smack into a storm of chaos: the estate’s new owners, including one whose idea of holiday decor involves inflatable elves and a gingerbread facade, are battling among themselves. Erin’s big-talking ex-boyfriend shows up just in time to make Sullivan crazy jealous, and when a local building inspector is found strangled with a strand of Christmas lights, Gilbert and Sullivan begin to suspect it might be time to leave this psycho-drama of a project behind.
But after an incompetent sheriff accuses Erin of murder and there’s another gruesome killing, the only way out is to turn detective. Her new job: solve a mystery with too many clues…and far too many guilty parties.

Currently reading: Torch of Freedom by David Weber.

I just finished an Agatha Christie novel. Have you read any of her stuff?

I believe that I have read them all! Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple, Tommy & Tuppence, and Superintendent Battle series for sure (how do you plural series? - series') along with 20 some non-series mystery and short story novels.
I haven't read her gothic romance books under the name Mary Westmacott...yet! :)

Which one did you read?

You've stumped me on series.

I haven't read close to all of them, but a handful of Marla Maple and Hercule Poirot. I just read Dead Man's Folly. I haven't found one of her books yet that I haven't thought was wonderful! Do you have a favorite?

Hmmm, I don't know about favorite but I'm partial to the Tommy & Tuppence series. The Secret Adversary, Partners in Crime, N or M, & By the Pricking of my Thumbs. Postern of Fate is the last one but that one was slow reading for me.
