Shakespeare's Christmas: Lily Bard Mystery Series, Book 3
Charlaine Harris's unique spin on the traditional 'cozy has garnered high praise and dedicated fans for her first two books set in Shakespeare, Arkansas. Harris has added a touch of noir to this typical charming Southern town and given a dark past to her heroine, cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard. The series debut, Shakespeare's Landlord, was named one of the top ten mysteries of 1996 by Mostly Murder, and Seventeen said of Shakespeare's Champion",We love the heroine of this compelling mystery.... Lily is too cool".In Shakespeare's Christmas, Lily goes home -- always an uncomfortable scenario for the introverted Lily -- for her sister's Christmas wedding. A four-year-old unsolved kidnapping resurfaces to push Lily to act once again as amateur sleuth to protect her sister -- whose new husband is the widowed father of a girl bearing a remarkable resemblance to the vanished child.

Even in a sleepy Arkansas town, the holidays can be murder.
Lily Bard is going home for the holidays. More comfortable in baggy sweats than bridesmaid's frills, Lily isn't thrilled about attending her estranged sister's wedding. She has moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas, to start a new life, cleaning houses for a living, trying to forget the violence that once nearly destroyed her. Now she's heading back to home and hearth—just in time for murder.
The town's doctor and nurse have been bludgeoned to death at the office. And Lily's detective boyfriend suddenly shows up at her parents' door. Jack Leeds is investigating an eight-year-old kidnapping and the trail leads straight to Lily's hometown. It just might have something to do with the murders...and her sister's widowed fiancé. With only three days before the wedding, Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister commits...marriage!
