Enjoyable read for a hot summer weekend!

Snow Place for Murder is the 3rd book in the cozy series featuring the Mountain Lodge and its owner Misty. The Lodge is booked up for the week with investors for a potential new resort. Since Misty is having bad luck with people being murdered at her Lodge (it wouldn’t be a cozy without some dead bodies), no surprise that the organizer of this week long event is murdered. There are a lot of suspects with possible motives but none truly stick out until the end of the book.

This was an enjoyable quick read cozy. I enjoy the Lodge setting and wish I was there right now (minus the dead body)

Thank you to Netgalley and St Martin’s Press for early access to Diane Kelly’s latest!

The Mountain Lodge mystery series' third book is a delightful fun read. North Carolina is home to Misty Murphy's Mountaintop Lodge where her boys are home for winter break. While skiing, they discover a weird shape which turns out to be Nigel Goodwin dead under the snow. Who would want to do in the resort developer sho had traveled from London to get investors for a new resort. Lots of red herrings. Delighted well developed characters. Diane Kelly once again delivers a well plotted solid mystery that's a delightful read. Thanks #Netgalley and #StMartinsPress for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Mountain Top Lodge seems a perfect place to spend the Winter holiday, Unfortunately a realtor has come from London to join forces with Misty Murphy, a local woman. The setting is North Carolina and the lodge sets just the right tone for a wintry holiday. (I read it in July and loved the snow!!)

The realtor ends up dead, the group is snowed in and the mystery must be solved.

A delightful cozy mystery

I mostly enjoyed this book. I did find the endless speculations about who the killer was annoying. I don’t think any investigating was done by Misty but she had theories galore, even leading to the arrest of the wrong guy. #SnowPlaceforMurder #NetGalley

This is the third book in this series and it did not disappoint. I liked the other books in this series which are based at the Mountaintop Lodge. I like that these books can be read in order or standalone....the perfect cozy mystery with red herrings throughout which kept you guessing until the end.

Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC.

Kindle Copy for Review from Net Galley, and St. Martin's Press.

I received a free, advance copy of this book and this is my unbiased and voluntary review.

What was supposed to be an idyllic mountain lodge resort trip near Christmas turns into a deadly entrapment. Who wanted the developer dead and why?

It will be a crime that Misty and her boys will have to dig through as a blizzard hits the crime scene. Will they figure out the doings before another body turns up in the snow.

Another charming read in the series.

Snow Place for Murder is the perfect cozy mystery to read over a hot and humid weekend.
Misty Murphy is back again in this exciting book, featuring her cat, Yeti.
Mountaintop Lodge has been booked exclusively for a week, a resort developer is planning to pitch an exclusive new resort concept to wealthy American investors, but not everyone is happy that they are in town.
Misty's sons are working at the resort over the holidays and a gruesome discovery puts Misty back into investigator mode.
This is a fun series that incorporates a lot of my favorite things, and Yeti is a great feline friend.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for selecting me to read an advanced copy of this book.

Another winner in this series by Diane Kelly. Crescent mountain retreat motel owner and her family are set to enjoy the holidays. However, a potential area resort owner may spoil the season. Super fun series!

This was the perfect cozy to get my detective senses going and feel immersed by the wintry vibes. Excellent plot execution and the clues were fun to figure out. Definitely a new favorite cozy author.

It was lovely being back at the Mountaintop Lodge! This is the third book in the series but can easily be read without reading the other books -- I'd recommend them though b/c they're nice, cozy mysteries.

There's an Easter egg in this book for fans of Kelly's House-Flipper Mystery series!

I'm very much looking forward to book four! Men in kilts? Yes, please. Oh, and more Yeti please!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from St. Martin's Press through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. Thank you, St. Martin's Press.

"Snow Place for Murder (Mountain Lodge Mysteries #3)" by Diane Kelly is a nice winter/winter holiday themed cozy mystery. I had a completely different idea of who the murder was and why then what ended up.

This one is fairly standalone though. I didn't feel like I was missing any important information for me to read this one. I would just suggest one edit, as this was an ARC I was reading. When Pebble introduces herself, she explains her name to Misty's boys rather than to Misty. It would make more sense this way since Misty should know her serious boyfriend's daughter names and nicknames if they're going to be spending the holidays together. I keep meaning to read the first couple of books in this series, now I will have to after getting this ARC from netgalley.
