    I gave this book four stars, not because it was amazing literature, but because it did such a wonderful job of evoking time and place. It's Christmastime 1946, in a small town in Wisconsin, and the annual Christmas carnival is ready to start. Shockingly, the town's mayor, Max Mueller is murdered at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony! Enter Agatha Larsen, a retired schooteacher, and her two granddaughters. After a friend is also murdered, they start looking into things themselves, and discover t I gave this book four stars, not because it was amazing literature, but because it did such a wonderful job of evoking time and place.

After a friend is also murdered, they start looking into things themselves, and discover that their small, quiet town is hiding a lot of secrets. I enjoyed this book for several reasons: 1) the time period. Not that long after World War II has ended, and people are happy to be back to their normal lives; 2) the feeling of small-town life. Some of the events and characters were so on point for not just 1946, but for many years, if not decades, after; 3) the writing. Though not amazing, it was lovely, quiet, and carried the story well. The ending was fine, though not quite what I was expecting. Overall, this is a lovely read for a break during the holidays.
