Merry Christmas from Parker’s Mill, where the treats are Sweet, the people are friendly, and the holidays are MURDER.

Carly Keene is only after the perfect photo of the town’s Christmas lights for the local newspaper, but instead she snaps up another murder when she discovers the body of the town’s resident Grinch, Renae Boggs, put out on display like some sick and twisted lawn decoration. There are plenty of suspects, but few people who actually care whether the killer is ever found. Renae had a terrible reputation for being hated and spiteful, but when Carly realizes that woman’s tragic past may have had something to do with her agoraphobic nature, she sets out solve the murder and bring peace back to her small town.

Can Carly find out who really killed the old woman, even when there are no clues and more suspects than she can count? And with Carly’s and Shell’s families all back in town, can the girls make it through the holidays without losing their minds? Family drama, Secret Santas, festive foods and murder most foul, all with a touch of Southern flair. Merry Christmas, y’all!

About the author:

Ruby Blaylock grew up in a small, southern town surrounded by colorful characters and lots of food. She loves a good helping of gossip and great food, not necessarily in that order. She is a country girl at heart and can often be found sitting on the back porch, sipping sweet tea and watching her fat hound dogs chase bugs. If she's not reading a book, she's writing one, or reading one to her kids, who can always help her think up new ways to kill off annoying characters.
