Reading & Signing


Wednesday, July 25th @ 7pm




Erin is one smart cookie, but can she keep the holiday spirit--and herself--alive till Christmas? In Jewel Bay, all is merry and bright. At Murphy's Mercantile, AKA the Merc, manager Erin Murphy is ringing in the holiday season with food, drink, and a new friend: Merrily Thornton. A local girl gone wrong, Merrily has turned her life around. But her parents have publicly shunned her, and they nurse a bitterness that chills Erin.

When Merrily goes missing and her boss discovers he's been robbed, fingers point to Merrily--until she's found dead, a string of lights around her neck. The clues and danger snowball from there. Can Erin nab the killer--and keep herself in one piece--in time for a special Christmas Eve?
Includes delicious recipes.
