The Christmas Thief
Christmas Mystery by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark
In this wonderful Christmas tale, mystery writer, Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol Higgins Clark, join forces to bring us a story involving the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center.
I always love a good mystery and Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors. I have read her daughter also, and always enjoy her lighthearted mysteries. Each Christmas they have been joining forces to write a joint Christmas book. These books seem to always have a humorous side and The Christmas Thief is no different.
If you are looking for a light mystery to read during the Christmas season I would recommend The Christmas Thief.

The Christmas Thief - Christmas mystery
This lighthearted mystery is a great read for the busy Christmas season.
The story centers around the Christmas tree that is to be displayed in New York's Rockefeller Center and a con man who has hidden stolen diamonds among the branches of the tree.
You will meet a wacky cast of characters in the book, including Packy Noonon, the con man, who has just been released from prison on parole. Returning to the book from past Higgins Clark novels is Alvirah Meehan, a lottery winner and amateur detective and her husband Willy. In this book Alvirah brings along her friend Opal, another lottery winner.
Regan Reilly, a private investigator from other Carol Higgins Clark mysteries, works to solve this mystery. She is joined by her fiancee Jack, and her parents Luke and Nora.
This often humorous tale takes place in Stowe, Vermont. It is a cheerful holiday mystery that you are sure to enjoy!
