In the New England town of Frog's Ledge, the Holiday
Light Festival is a Christmas tradition. Killing Santa is
not. To bring joy back to the season, organic pet patisserie
owner Kristan "Stan" Connor will have to find another Santa
before it's too late . . .
To the townspeople's delight, the annual lighting of the
tree is a spectacular success. Unfortunately, Santa pulled
up in his sleigh, DOA. At first Stan is sure it's Seamus,
her boyfriend's uncle, inside the red suit. But the victim
turns out to be an employee from the town's Christmas tree
farm. Rumor has it the deceased was a mean drunk with a soft
spot for feral cats. Stan has no idea why he was dressed as
St. Nick—or why he's dead.
Meanwhile, Seamus, a jolly Irishman who comes to America
every December to visit his pub-owner nephew, is nowhere to
be found. Could he just be off on a Boston bar crawl? Or is
something more sinister under the tree? Seamus was supposed
to be dressing up and posing for pet pictures with Santa at
the shop, but the dogs and cats might have to find another
lap to curl up in if Stan doesn't solve two mysteries
soon. Or murder might be the only thing under the mistletoe
this holiday . . .
