Treacherous Toys (A Renaissance Faire Mystery #5) by Joyce Lavene & Jim Lavene
My Review: Treacherous Toys
I liked Treacherous Toys. It is the 5th book in the series but second one I have read. I liked this series. This is a cozy mystery. It starts the drama right away. I was surprised with who the murder was.
It is fun book.
I like the Renaissance Faire Mystery. It would be fun to visit a village like this.
Jessie Morton is supposed to be a apprentice Toy Maker. She also plans to finish her Doctorate. Her first day at the village this year she ends up taking pictures of Father Christmas and the children. Her boyfriend is Chase the Bailiff.
Chris Christmas is a toy maker and father of 8 children who help make toys and dress as elves. They are new to the village this year.
When Jessie comes back after her lunch to start working on the toys she is knocked out and when she wakes up she finds Chris dead on the floor.
Chase is the Bailiff for the village. He wants Jessie to move into the village with him full time.
Their are lots of suspects. Lots of drama and fun. Their is a Queen & King living in the Castle with a court and servants. Pirates living on Pirate ship, jousts with knights. Lots of fun characters.
I will read more books by Joyce and Jim Lavene in the future.
I was given this book by the authors for purpose of review.
