Publisher's Summary

"A deftly constructed and thoroughly enjoyable small-town murder mystery with a Christmas twist." (Kirkus Reviews)

It's the holiday season in Notchey Creek, and Harley Henrickson is busy mixing yuletide cocktails at her store, Smoky Mountain Spirits. There is snow on the ground, holiday music in the air, and wreathes on every lamppost. Everything seems perfect for the town’s biggest event of the year, the Small Town Christmas Festival. Even Harley’s pet pig, Matilda, is feeling festive, wearing the Elf-on-the-Shelf costume Aunt Wilma bought for her. But not all is merry and bright in this little mountain town. Harley senses something eerie in the air, and it all points to Notchey Creek's oldest and most beautiful home - Briarcliffe.

No sooner had rock star Beau Arson settled into his ancestral mansion of Briarcliffe than a self-righteous ghost hunter arrived in town, telling macabre tales about Beau’s new home. According to legend, a young woman by the name of Margaret Reed hanged herself in the woods behind Briarcliffe on Christmas Day, over a century ago. To make matters worse, Beau has been experiencing ghostly encounters at night, seeking to drive him from his family’s home.

When Harley finds the body of a mysterious woman in the woods near Briarcliffe, and then a wealthy antiques dealer is murdered, she decides to investigate. Can Harley intervene before a century of lies, greed, and passion destroy Beau Arson’s new life - the past he’s just only come to know?

In the meantime, other issues are causing problems for Harley. Aunt Wilma and Opha Mae Shaw are designing a Christmas dress of epic proportions for Harley (and one for Matilda, of course). Uncle Tater and Floyd have been devising top-secret plans in The Shed that might have to do with the upcoming Christmas Parade. And Harley’s best friend, Tina Rizchek, is at her wit’s end when her colorful grandmother and pet parrot visit from Pittsburgh for the holidays.

Excellent book and series

As a voracious reader, I can say this is one of the best series I’ve read in a very long time. Liz S. Andrew’s has developed her characters beautifully and the atmospheric setting is perfect. It’s a good cozy mystery with a hint of romance, but it’s unique- not the usual formulaic books that are common these days. And the vocalist does an excellent job.

Not for me

I couldn't get into this book. The characters and story didn't appeal to me so I stopped listening to it and returned it.
