    1. 3.75 starsVivian Witchell s star has been on the rise at WCHI radio in the two months since the first book in this charming series She s got a lead role in the station s most popular radio serial and her picture regularly appears in the entertainment papers, usually in connection with her dashing male co star, Graham Yarborough It s a fake relationship drummed up by the publicity department but of course the general public doesn t know this Neither does Charlie Haverman, the P.I who made Vivian [...]


    2. This was fun, and pretty much what I expected from the title A light, enjoyable read with a plot that never lagged, set at an interesting point in the history of Chicago It was fun, too, to read about places that are still around, particularly the Aragon Ballroom, where I ve been many times though of course it really was a ballroom at that point I ll probably read the next in the series.


    3. I really enjoyed this book Maybe not quite as much as the first but still 5 star I do hope to see growth from Vivian in the next book It s ended with her telling a non truth so she is still not being very mature to Charlie who s too good for her I will be frustrated if she doesn t grow up by book 3


    4. I had to pick this book up and see what it was about since it takes place during the holidays and that is my favorite time of the year And the story was good The author did a good job of taking me back to the time when this took place I felt like I was watching an old black and white movie It was great I would read another book in this series, for sure


    5. Although the milieu of 1930 s radioland is unusual, this is really just a run of the mill mystery with the usual soupcon of romance But after reading a book about African American history a continuing tragedy , reading a brutal Dennis Lehane mystery recommended by a misguided friend, and watching and reading the news depressing every day , it was exactly what I was in the mood for Light, sweet, and satisfying.



    6. Radio actress Vivian discovers a hidden secret about her long deceased father She hires Charlie, the private detective whom she s been falling in love with, to help her investigate As she gets closer to the truth about her father, she also finds that she s in danger I wish Honigford hadn t told so much about the solution to number 1 of this series there are people who don t read series in order, and who might feel discouraged from reading the first one, which I also enjoyed.


    7. I really like the characters in this series, most of the time Vivian sometimes grates on me with her childishness, but I really enjoy all of the others I also think the author does a really great job creating imagery, making for a pleasant read.I have a few gripes with this book 1 I wish she hadn t used Al Capone Everything about this series feels fun and vintage and using a well known mobster cheapened it for me I can t really pinpoint why, but it did.2 The size of the book is terrible That may [...]


    8. Homicide for the Holidays is a delightful although sometimes wistful holiday mystery set in the Chicago radio theater world at the end of 1938, amidst the uneasiness of world events prior to World War II and following the fast rise and fall of Al Capone Vivian Witchell is a rising radio star, determined to make a life and career for herself while forging through a variety of challenges and a fledgling relationship, all of which she meets head on with various degrees of success Cheryl Honigford k [...]


    9. This was quite a fun read Vivien Witchell is now the star of The Darkness Knows a somewhat romantic mystery soap opera As in the author s first book of the same name It s Christmas and Viv is reliving the melancholy memories of her father s death several years before She explores her father s death, finds a key to a locked door and discovers a lot of cash and mysterious scribbles The investigation begins Viv investigates the cash and whether or not it is connected with her father s death but the [...]


    10. Set during the late 30s, right before WWII, Vivian is home for the holidays She s feeling very melancholy and missing her father who passed eight years before When she finds a hidden desk key in his study, she also discovers an envelop of cash and a threatening note in his desk drawer That sends her on a very dangerous trail as she tries to figure out who her father really was I truly enjoyed Vivian and this book filled with varied characters Honigford does an excellent job of detailing a compli [...]


    11. I haven t read the first book in the series, but got this one because it was a holiday mystery I think it was well written and I will no doubt read the first book, as well as others as they come out.


    12. Another Viv and Charlie mystery, this time set during the holidays in 1938 A darker mood in this one, with of the real world making an appearance mention of Kristallnacht, Chamberlain s appeasement Gangsters abound in this holiday episode.
