"A terrific mystery with believable characters and lots of heart," perfect for bringing peace and joy to the holiday season (Denise Swanson, New York Times bestselling author).
Super organizer Ellie Avery could really use some Christmas cheer when Gabrielle Matheson, a grinchy professional rival, sets up shop in the same small Georgia town. But before the halls are even halfway decked with holly, someone uses Ellie's terrifically tasteless white elephant swap gift as . . . a murder weapon!
Ellie's now a suspect. Besides playing Mrs. Santa for her Air Force pilot husband and their two kids, shielding her eyes from the garishly over-decorated house down the street, and helping a client who's a hardcore hoarder, Ellie also has to solve this ho-ho-homicide . . . and find a killer who wishes her a very deadly Christmas.
Don't miss Ellie Avery's great tips for a relaxed and stress-free holiday season!
"Sara Rosett once again presents readers with intriguing characters, a strong setting, more than a dash of humor and a suspenseful plot that ably keeps us guessing until the end. No mean achievement! Yet, what places her sleuth, Air Force wife Ellie Avery, at the top of my list are the poignant descriptions of what military families face every day, bringing an essential reminder of their sacrifices to us all, especially at this time of year." Katherine Hall Page, Agatha Award-winning author
