Christmas comes to Weatherford, Texas, in this delicious new entry in the national bestselling series.

Yuletide is here—and retired teacher cum amateur sleuth Phyllis Newsom looks forward to finishing up this unlucky year. But she won’t be hanging up her apron just yet—because this year’s Christmas bake-off is going to be cutthroat.Phyllis would like to think she’s entering the Christmas cookie contest for the fun of it—but that’s not exactly true. She can’t imagine anyone beating her snowflake-shaped lime sugar cookies. Then, during her annual Christmas cookie exchange, Phyllis heads over to the elderly Mrs. Simmons’s home and finds her dead, in a pile of lime sugar cookies. But with a number of names on Santa’s naughty list, this case may be a hard cookie to crumble.

  1. Love your books! I so cannot wait for this one to come out :-)

  2. Loved this book. Since I'm very familiar with Weatherford it was a very fun read. My family is from the MetroPlex/Roanoke/Lewisville area ... my dad had a shop in Benbrook! (and your hubby used his last name in one of his books, not a common name, yay! Y'all have inspired me (re-inspired actually) to start writing again.

    I look forward to more of your works.

  3. OH! I forgot to say, I tried the Snowflake cookie recipe. It was yummy! I didn't have enough lime in the house, so I added lemon. Extra yummy!!! I also tried the rolls ... oh man, good thing we're not neighbors. I'd be as big as a house!!!

  4. Thanks for the kind words, and Sara, good luck with the writing.
