Snow Way Out: A Snow Globe Shop Mystery by Christine Husom

About The Book:

Curio shop manager Camryn Brooks thought she’d seen every kind of snow globe—until she saw one depicting a crime scene….

Ever since she was a child, Cami has loved the sparkling beauty of snow globes, and now, she sells them.  In fact, they’re so popular, Cami and her friend—coffee shop owner Alice “Pinky” Nelson—are hosting a snow globe making class.

After the flurry of activity has ended and everyone has gone off with their own handmade snow globes, Cami spots a new globe left behind on a shelf, featuring an odd tableau—a man sleeping on a park bench.
On her way home, she drifts through the town park and is shaken to come upon the scene from the globe—a man sitting on a bench. But he isn’t sleeping—he has a knife in his back. When the police arrive, it’s clear they consider Cami a little flaky and possibly a suspect. After her friends also come under suspicion, Cami starts plowing through clues to find the cold-blooded backstabber—before someone else gets iced…
Snow globe making projects and tips included!

My Thoughts:

What better subject for the cold, snowy month of January than a cozy mystery about snow globes?

Author Christine Huson supplies the ticket for that request with her latest book, and the start of a new series - "Snow Way Out: A Snow Globe Shop Mystery."

I loved this story!  The characters are quirky and interesting, the premise for the mystery is fresh and fun, and Husom's storytelling is just a delight. The fast pace of the tale moved the book along at a nice clip, never allowing for any real "down time" for the reader to get distracted or bored.

I look forward to more great stories from this series.  If you like to get into a series from the very beginning - this is the book for you!
