Publisher's Summary

A holiday murder mystery from the Agatha Award finalist: "Series fans will enjoy spending time with these appealing folks and their dogs." (Publishers Weekly)

With a demanding teaching job and five poodles scampering around the house, Melanie Travis barely has energy for the upcoming Christmas rush. But she unwraps an unexpected challenge when her brother and ex-husband make a spontaneous bid on a dilapidated pine-tree farm. Although the 10-acre lot had been a popular seasonal destination while the original owner was still alive, it'll take a small miracle or two before the neglected place is in shape for December.

But the business venture goes cold when the group discovers a purebred Maltese whimpering in the snow-covered grove - right beside a dead body. Pete, a squatter who camped out on the land, apparently met his end after a fallen fir-tree branch fell on his head. But as Melanie and Aunt Peg investigate Pete's complicated history, it's clear his death was no accident. Now, Melanie must run through a flurry of likely suspects and muzzle a dogged murderer in time - or she'll be next on someone's deadly list.

Great story - disappointing narrator

I've really enjoyed this series. It's light reading (listening) with some laugh-out-loud moments. I was very disappointed when there was a switch in narrators. The person who can make you want to listen all night is invaluable, and unfortunately Angie Hickman cannot do so. I can't help comparing her monotonous manner of reading to Jessica Almasy's wonderfully expressive way of making the characters come alive. I definitely recommend the book - not the narrator.

Couldn't get past inferior narration

The narrator was just terrible. Especially after listening to Jessica Almasy, the great narrator of all the previous recordings. The narrator had an annoying cadence to everything she said with very little voice delineation between characters. I'm sure I might find the story just as entertaining as the rest of this series, but since I didn't get past the first quarter I'll never know. Sorry to see this series stall here.

Dark, rambling. Not for Christmas.

Dark and rambling, too much unnecessary stretching of story, needs an editor. Not a good fit for Christmas.
