Publisher's Summary

Mildred Kilgore and Earlynne Biddle are planning to open a bakery on the square - if they can come up with the right recipes. Charlie Dickens faces two of the biggest puzzles of his career as an investigative reporter, and one of them involves his wife. Cute little Cupcake's talent as a singer and dancer makes her a tempting target for an unscrupulous exploiter. Lizzy must enlist the Dahlias to protect her while she herself is confronted by a romantic puzzle. And Sheriff Norris is forced to reopen a puzzling mystery that the town thought was solved. 

Once again, New York Times best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert takes us to a place where real people have courage, respect their neighbors, and dream of doing their best, even when they're not sure what that is. She reminds us that Christmas is a celebration of friendship, community, and what's right with the world. There's nothing puzzling about that. 

Reading group questions, recipes, and Depression-era background are available at DarlingDahlias.com.

Love This Series

If you love Fannie Flagg, then you will love this series as well. The series revolves around a small town in Alabama during the Depression with a mystery to unravel in each book. The characters are all people that you would want to have as neighbors - even the obnoxious ones. This latest entry has a more serious mystery than usual, but the author manages to keep it from getting too dark. #Small Town #Depression #Nostalgic #Tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

Love the Dahlias

I am a diehard fan of China Bayles so when I had binged the whole series while sewing I was distraught. What to do? I tried the first of the Dahlias and I was hooked. The characters are well developed and the plot twists are terrific. The only problem is that I have listened to all of them, also! Please Ms. Albert, may we have some more?
