Freelance writer Jaine Austen is feeling festive about
spending Christmas house-sitting at a posh Bel Air mansion,
accompanied by her friend Lance and her cat, Prozac. But
when a grumpy neighbor gets himself iced, sheâ€™ll have to
find the culprit or she may spend the New Year in jail . . .
Scotty Parker is a former child star who once played Tiny
Tim, but now heâ€™s grown up into the role of neighborhood
Scrooge. He cuts the wires on his neighborsâ€™ Christmas
lights and tells local kids that Santa had a stroke. And his
miserly, bah-humbug attitude lasts year-roundâ€”a fact known
all too well by his current wife, his ex-wife, his maid, and
Scotty thinks he can stage a comeback with the screenplay
heâ€™s working on (The Return of Tiny Tim: Vengeance Is
Mine!), and Jaineâ€™s been reluctantly helping him edit
it. So when Scotty is bludgeoned with a frozen chocolate
yule log and the police start making a list of suspects and
checking it twice, Jaineâ€™s name is unfortunately included.
True, sheâ€™s been under some stress, with Lance trying to set
her up on dates and her fickle feline taking a sudden liking
to someone elseâ€”but sheâ€™s not guilty of murder. Now she just
has to prove it, by using her gift for detection and
figuring out who committed this holiday homicide.
