Christmas normally descends on Lake Eden, Minnesota, as gently as reindeer alighting on a rooftop--but this yuletide season the only thing coming down Hannah Swensen's chimney is a case of murder . . .

The holidays have arrived, and Hannah and her good pal Lisa have agreed to provide all the goodies for the town's annual production of A Christmas Carol . But before anyone can say "Bah, humbug!" a Santa-sized sackful of trouble ensues. Like the fact that Lisa's husband will be playing Mr. Claus to his ex-girlfriend Phyllis Bates' Mrs. Claus. Or that before the curtains even go up Phyllis is found dead in the snow--wearing a costume that the real Mrs. Claus would put on the naughty list. Soon after, the suspects pile up faster than snowdrifts in a blizzard, while a merry murderer remains on the loose. With clues even harder to find, it might take a visit from ghosts of Christmas past to wrap up this mystery in time for the holidays . . .

Includes a Dozen Holiday Recipes from The Cookie Jar!

"Tasty . . . Hannah is irresistible as a cookie fresh from the oven."

She needs to close out this series. It's gone as far as possible for entertainment reading.

In this novella, Hannah shares a mystery that happened last Christmas with her new husband Ross. As they sample chocolate flan at the Lake Eden Inn, Hannah recounts how Phyllis Bates, Herb Beeseman's old high school flame, wound up dead in a ditch outside the Corner Tavern. Although Phyllis was having an affair with Mayor Bascomb, he has an airtight alibi -- much to Hannah's dismay. As she solves the mystery, visits from her long-dead father (shades of A Christmas Carol) and counseling sessions with her partner Lisa, complicate the tale. Enough cookies recipes are included that would make a nice holiday present for your friends and neighbors.

I always enjoy reading this series and this title is no exception! Once again, Hannah Swenson, owner of the Cookie Jar bakery, solves the mystery of who killed a very provocative Mrs. Claus.
