Book Review: Dangers & Empty Mangers by Trixie Silvertale

A frozen cheesemaker. A vandalized Nativity. Can our psychic sleuth serve up justice before she’s iced?

Mitzy Moon might be getting too comfortable. Her love life is satisfying, her family is supportive, and her extra senses are becoming more reliable. But, before she can bask in that glow, a suspicious death and a missing Messiah threaten to spoil the New Year…

Sniffing out the murderer of a local cheesemaker should be her guiding star, but there’s nothing as upsetting as a stolen baby Jesus. And with the trail growing smellier than a ripe Limburger, she’s desperate for help from her supernatural supporting cast. Unfortunately, with her powers now leading her in circles, she may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Can Mitzy peel the rind off the culprit before she’s prematurely aged?

Dangers and Empty Mangers is the seventeenth book in the hilarious paranormal cozy mystery series, Mitzy Moon Mysteries. If you like snarky heroines, supernatural misfits, and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Trixie Silvertale’s heartfelt whodunits.


My Review

Mitzy Moon is at it again. Her sheriff boyfriend asks her to find the missing Jesus from a manger scene which she is happy to do, but she is also investigating a death that a friend asks her to look into. He thinks it’s murder, and she’s determined to help him find justice.

This is book 17 in the series, and I almost feel like a citizen of Pin Cherry Harbor. There are so many great characters here. Mitzy is hilarious as usual. Her clumsiness tickles me, maybe because I can relate to it so well. Her boyfriend, Erick, has to be the best boyfriend in the history of boyfriends. Mitzy’s inherited caracal, Pyewacket, is possibly my favorite character. He’s always giving important clues to Mitzy and seems to understand everything that is said.

Even though Mitzy’s supernatural powers are on the fritz because of pain meds for a sprained ankle, she’s able to solve both cases with the help of those around her…and an intervention by her grandma.

I love this series! Many series tend to get stale by the time they make it to book 17, but this one keeps getting better. Each book has a satisfying ending, but I’m always looking forward to finding out what Mitzy gets into next.
