Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are on a train to New York, finally on a honeymoon after a year of marriage. January in New York might not be the perfect time to visit, but they'll take it. The trip is a Christmas present from Dwight's sister-in-law, who arranged for them to stay in an Upper West Side apartment for one week. While in New York, Deborah has been asked to deliver a package to Lt. Sigrid Harald of the NYPD. Sigrid offers to swing by the apartment to pick up the box, but when they reach the apartment, they discover that it is missing and the doorman has been murdered. Despite their best efforts to enjoy a blissful getaway, Deborah and Dwight soon find that they've teamed up with Sigrid and her team to catch the killer before he strikes again.

Ok I love a good mystery like the next person but I just couldn't get into this book. Let me start by saying, this was not the best mystery but certainly not the worst either. It does have potential. At first the story just drags along Deborah and Dwight are getting ready to leave to go on there honeymoon. Yeah women want to pack everything in the house ya da ya da....Men are always in a hurry....ya da ya da..... Needless to say they make there train and they make it to New York, safely if I may add.... Hooray!!!!!

I know as good as anyone else a book needs fillers but come on every time I turn around it nonsense stuff. Like what and where they ate at,shoe addict, what somebody
had on... Hum Hello!!! Snows on the ground and in New York. Which is very irradiating to me because it makes the book drag out even further..ZZZZ wake me when the blood shed begins.....

Say what!! The buildings super is dead. Found dead in Deborah and Dwight's apartment. Oh no!!! Who could have done such a thing everybody loved Phyllis oops I mean Phil. He was such a swell guy or may I say gal. Still never figured out what difference it made if he was a male or female. For me this is about when the book started to get interesting. Although I would have figured Dwight would have been more part of the story. Dwight's a deputy he could helped more with the case,even if it was out of his jurisdiction. After all the building super was killed in his apartment.
