This is not simply a case of the girl coming back to her home town and facing those she grew up with. She should also make sober decisions about what to do about her life. Sometimes, fear stops you realising your potential for happiness. December Dread is great fun with a nice puzzle for our heroine to solve. It’s definitely worth picking up!

Synopsis

Silent Night, Deadly Night

With Christmas just over a week away, ’tis the season for grinning sales elves on TV, maddeningly jolly Muzak, and a guilty Nut Goodie addiction. But for Mira James and other Battle Lake-area women, the holidays are marred by something far worse—a serial killer leaving candy canes as his calling card. His target? Thirty-something brunettes who look just like Mira. When a woman from her high school graduating class becomes his latest victim, Mira plows through a case of online dating turned deadly with Mrs. Berns at her side. Will she earn her detective stripes . . . or end up deader than the Ghost of Christmas Past? 

Praise:
“Snappy jokes and edgy dialogue. Get started on this Lefty-nominated series if you’ve previously missed it.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Her latest is loaded with humor, and many of the descriptions are downright poetic.” —Booklist (starred review)

Finalist for The Lefty Award for best humorous mystery.
