    For only being a 95-page novella, this little book was a really good murder mystery and a nice filler for the time between when Liv arrived in town for her events coordinator job and the second book that I'm reading now for Christmas in July. It's been awhile since I read the very first book, so I'd forgotten a few details about some of the people in town, but it was easy to get back on track. I remember really liking the character of Bill the sheriff.

I remember really liking the character of Bill the sheriff. He's laid-back but he knows how to get the job done (even when the last job of the day has to do with the Thanksgiving reenactment!) And I just love Ted--for some reason I picture him as a slightly younger but still white-haired Dick Van Dyke, lol. I went straight for the second book and my plan is to include the third book yet this month since it deals with July 4th. What a fun series that I plan to savor, since I've heard that it's finished.

    I love this series and look forward to the next installment, although its been awhile since the author came out with a new title. I hope she doesn't abandon this series. This little mini-mystery was a welcome connection to the main characters, but the story seemed to almost end prematurely.

    Cold Turkey is book 1 1/2 in the Celebration Bay series. A welcomed book it is, too.

A quick read and an enjoyable visit to delightful community of interesting residents.

    Very short light cozy set at Thanksgiving in Celebration, a small town which has become a family tourist destination due to it's town-wide celebration of holidays large and small.

The town is hosting a Thanksgiving Turkey Trot, and town event planner Liz is participating in the 10K section of the run. Along the way, in an isolated wooded part of the course, she hears gunshots, and investigating, finds one of the runners killed. With help from Liz and other locals, the murderer is apprehended and a conspiracy to ruin the family friendly vibe of the town is uncovered and foiled. But first you get to see the town's Pilgrim Feast and the re-enactment of the town's 'supposed' First Thanksgiving. This was fun, extremely light, and a fast read. I've actually read and enjoyed other books in the series, and this fits in near the beginning when Liz is still a newcomer to the town.

    A mini-mystery that takes place between the first and second books of the Celebration Bay mystery series. Most novella's focus on character development, but this was a full-fledged mini-mystery with a murder taking place during the 10k Turkey Trot. I'll call this one of the better mystery novella's I've read for plot complexity. I'm still reserving judgement on the characters - The author hasn't done a whole lot to make me like those that feel like they are going to be an integral part of the A mini-mystery that takes place between the first and second books of the Celebration Bay mystery series.

I'm still reserving judgement on the characters - The author hasn't done a whole lot to make me like those that feel like they are going to be an integral part of the series (Chaz) but one can hardly expect the author to accomplish that in an ebook special novella. Overall, if you enjoy the mini-stories that pop up in your mystery series, this is one of the better ones.

    3.5 stars Love the characters and setting in this series.. This novella, however was way too short and ended so abruptly that I don't feel like the story was resolved properly. That being said, I plan to start the next book in the series right away :)

    I like the town of Celebration Bay so it was nice to have a short Thanksgiving visit. I thought this book needed a bit more wrap up, but was otherwise enjoyable as they try and solve the murder of one of the Turkey Trot runners.

    I like these novels. This one was so short that there weren't enough red herrings and subplots in it to keep me guessing. I prefer the long novels she writes.

    A short and sweet cozy. The plot seemed a little bit rushed but that was to be expected with a novella. Nonetheless, I look forward to reading more celebration bay mysteries with liv & whiskey.
