'In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, the townsfolk are all pitching in to prepare for the first (and many hope annual) Festival of Joy. The night before the festival begins, a group of employees at the local market learn that they have won $180 million in the lottery. One of their co-workers, Duncan, decided at the last-minute, on the advice of a pair of crooks masquerading as financial advisers, not to play. Then he goes missing. A second winning lottery ticket was purchased in the next town, but the winner hasn't come forward. Could Duncan have secretly bought it?'

I really enjoyed this book.

A cozy Christmas mystery, that was a short, cute, easy read. The action is fast-paced in this clever story, with enough twists to keep the reader interested.

With some genuinely funny situations, and great characters, this book will keep you entertained from start to finish.

The chapters are short so it is easy to read just one more chapter, then another and another. With easy to understand writing and an exciting plot, I finished this book in just over a day.

With lots of characters to journey with, there is never a dull moment in this book. Once I picked it up I honestly couldn't put it down.

I loved the Christmas spirit on display in this book, it isn't overflowing or cheesy, it's just the perfect amount to get you in the festive mood.

This is the second holiday collaboration between the mother and daughter duo that I have read. I also recently read Silent Night by Mary Higgins Clark, and I have loved all of these books. I am so glad I picked them up to read this Christmas season.

Dashing Through The Snow by Mary and Carol Higgins Clark is the perfect book to read at Christmas. I look forward to reading many more Christmas adventures by this amazing duo.
