Holiday Mystery and Bundle !

Although the calendar still reads Autumn, it's winter cold in Philly. The perfect setting for taking a seat by the fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate and a relaxing read. Check out this week's featured holiday offerings, a cozy Christmas mystery and a delightful Holiday bundle!

Christmas Calamity  
(A Painted Lady Inn Mystery)
by M K Scott

A drive-by murder signals the end of a relaxed Christmas. Donna refuses to accept that organized crime is moving into town, but to do so, she must find the murderer. In the meantime, she needs to host a Victorian tea, pin down a certain detective’s romantic intentions, keep a boozy Santa sober, deal with a cursed clown doll, and hide a hunky underwear model. It’s just another holiday at The Painted Lady Inn.

  1. Thanks for hosting Christmas Calamity, which I can say was a delight to write in the middle of summer. Now, I'm ready to start thinking of summer. LOL

    1. Morgan, if you felt this Philadelphia wind-chill today, you would be wishing for Summer. Happy Holidays!

  2. Look at all the delightful Christmas stories! Happy to share. Hugs!

    1. Christmas stories always get readers in the Holiday spirit!

  3. Some awesome Christmas reads! I just need more hours in the day. ;-)

    1. More hours in the day would be great! And, I know it's cold up your way, Jennifer. You may even see some snow tonight.

  4. Thanks for all the Christmas reads. I'm looking forward to all the hoopla being over. Sounds like Philadelphia is in for some snowy weather. So glad I'm in sunny Arizona.

    1. The snow headed north and west of Philly. We had lots of rain. Please send some of that Arizona sunshine our way!

  5. Nothing like a little murder during the holiday season! Thanks for sharing, this looks good.

    1. It's a fun, and different, kind of Christmas story.
