The Agatha Award–winning author of Pressing the Issue returns to the Cookbook Nook, where Jenna Hart is busy decking the halls and ducking a killer . . .
The holidays are Jenna Hart’s favorite time of year, but just as she’s decorating the Cookbook Nook for all the festive events, her imperious older sister makes a surprise visit, anxious that her husband’s been more naughty than nice. To make matters worse, her father’s good friend Jake shows up on her doorstep with a frantic report that his friend has been murdered—trussed with Christmas lights and impaled with a tree star.
Worried that Jake was the intended victim, Jenna makes a list of suspects and checks it twice. Swapping her Santa’s hat for a sleuthing cap, she gets busy investigating Jake’s long-lost sister, his Grinch of a neighbor, and a stamp collector who covets Jake’s most treasured piece. When Jake himself is poisoned and nearly dies, Jenna knows she’ll have to do whatever it takes to corner the culprit before it’s lights out for Jake . . .
Includes tantalizing holiday recipes!

What I Thought:

I enjoy visiting the town of Crystal Cove and Jenna Hart, owner of the Cookbook Nook.  In this story it is Christmastime in Crystal Cove and an old friend of the family shows up saying a friend of his has been murdered.  Along with having to deal with a murder, Jenna's sister and her family are visiting for the holidays.  So Jenna has a lot on her plate. This book was as good as the other Cookbook Nook Mysteries that I have read.  Daryl's writing style is superb which makes the story flow well and kept me entertained throughout the book.  There were just enough twists and turns to keep me guessing.  I really enjoy the setting of this book and it was great visiting all the quirky characters that inhabit Crystal Cove.  I have not read the whole series yet, but I will eventually get to them all and hope that there will be more in the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
