In The Dead of Winter by Nancy Mehl

From the Back Cover:
Samantha "Ivy" Towers returns to Winter Break, Kansas, where she spent her summers as a child, to make funeral arrangements for her Aunt Bitty. While there, she begins to suspect her aunt’s death, which resulted from a fall in her bookshop, wasn't an accident after all. Childhood friend, Amos Parker, now sheriff of Winter Break, seems anxious to get Ivy out of town. A missing book, a message scrawled by an unknown person, and an extra coffee cup leaves Ivy with more questions than answers.

My Review:
This is a great mystery. I enjoyed how this story unfolded. I love the way Nancy interweaves the quirky people of Winter Break in to this story. Aunt Bitty was loved by the whole community and her death affects so many of the citizens. As the story unfolds I loved this town more and more and I love seeing how Sam "Ivy" starts to wonder what really happened. I give this book 4.5 out of 5. If you haven't read any of the Cosy Mysteries I would recommend them.
