A hidden key that opens a drawer locked for the past eight years, a mysterious envelope filled with cash, and a threatening note... none of this is what rising radio star Vivian Witchell expects to find in her late father’s office. But when Vivian stumbles into trouble, she hardly knows how steer herself back to safety. With the handsome and maddeningly practical private detective Charlie Haverman at her side, Vivian spends the holiday season uncovering the details of the last weeks of her father’s life, following a sinister trail of clues that leads her directly to one of the most notorious mob bosses of all time, Al Capone.

3.75 stars Vivian 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 dashin...

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 - t...

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe not quite as much as the first but still 5 star. I do hope to see more 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...

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...

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 watchi...

A little slow moving but good historical background of the 30's.

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 tol...

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...

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, de...

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 fat...
