Jam and preserve maker Becca Robins is excited about the extra business that the Ridgeway Christmas Tree Farm is bringing to the market this holiday season. But when a competing tree farmer, Reggie Stuckey, arrives with a truck full of trees, angrily barking that he has exclusive selling rights at the market, Becca finds herself pining for more goodwill toward men. After Reggie is found with a tree stake in his chest, she wonders when the Christmas tree business turned so deadly. Now Becca has to use the only clues she has to the killer's identity--mysterious ornaments that begin to show up in her stall--to hook a sinister Scrooge who will go to any lengths to drive home a point.

"Merry Market Murder" by Paige Shelton was a decent cozy mystery set at Christmas. I'm not so sure that there were enough clues but the plot made some sense. The amateur detective, Becca, spends some digressive time on subplots that really don't help the story but do tie this story to others in the series. The Christmas milieu is a real part of the story and not some how tacked on in the background. Not only is the victim a seller of Christmas trees but the farmers' market where the story is set is in Christmas mode as is Becca and her friends. Quite liked the novel.
