Tis the season for mayhem and mystery . . .
Kristin Clark and her offbeat crew of Bryn Mawr pals are ready for a festive holiday—one that involves sipping Blitzen’s Bourbons by a yule log, hot guys beneath the mistletoe, and a holiday cabaret starring ex-Mafia wife Sophie Shields. But this year, Saint Nick has something more dangerous in store.
A stranger dressed as Santa has Kristin’s friends on his naughty list. First, Sophie’s favorite handbag is blasted by a bullet. Then, Father Christmas shatters local golf-shop owner Chip Delaney’s car window with a 5-iron and leaves a threatening note demanding $50,000. When Chip goes missing, the stakes become deadly.
Much-hated Powerball winner Eula Morris is also back from a luxury cruise, more boastful than ever and toting a handsome new boyfriend (who looks oddly familiar), as well as a Samsonite filled with gold bars. When the suitcase is snatched, Eula implores Kristin and the gang to track it down.
Is Chip on the run, or was he kidnapped? And who stole Eula’s gold? The Killer WASPs and Kristin’s basset hound, Waffles, are on the case—before this white Christmas turns dark . . .
Review of Killer Holiday
Mayhem certainly describes Killer Holiday, which is more madcap caper with zany characters than a Christmas mystery. It was difficult for me to “suspend disbelief” during this story in which the characters always seemed capable of solving problems no matter how difficult. With that said, I read this book without knowledge of those that came before. It may well be that these Bryn Mawr pals have unlimited resources and can tackle any challenge thrown at them.
Want a way to disconnect from reality for the holiday season? This one’s got you covered. It also had some moments that made me chuckle out loud—and that’s no easy task.
