Description

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially now that Caprice De Luca has wrapped up her holiday-themed staging gig at a stunning historic home in downtown Kismet, Pennsylvania. Behind all the red ribbon and glowing string lights, homeowners Chris and Sara Merriweather have it all. But Chris, a Vietnam vet who plays Santa every year at the community park, has been displaying strange behavior after a recent trip to Washington, D.C.
 
The joy of the season vanishes entirely when Chris is found murdered on Santa Lane, leaving behind his loyal malamute and lots of unfinished business. As Caprice uncovers hidden secrets in Santa’s workshop, the pressure is on to catch the candy cane-wielding culprit—before she’s next on a killer’s deadly wish list . . .

    This is an enjoyable cozy mystery series that is best enjoyed read sequentially in order to better appreciate the characters, their development and their relationships with each other. Caprice is once again drawn into a murder investigation, that of the town's charitable Santa figure, a familiar face and a good friend of her father. But solving his murder could bring even more sorrow since it may have been done by a friend. The story flows at a nice, steady pace and I love how Caprice's family support her and each other. A new addition to this story is the adorable white Malamute, Blitz, as well as regulars Lady, and cats Sophia and Mirabelle. I can't wait for book #8. Disclosure: I am voluntarily reviewing this book received through Net Galley.
