It’s the holiday season, but not everyone is jolly–especially not Vonne Barnett. Her dead body has been found near Victoria Square. Katie Bonner, the manager of Artisan’s Alley, happens to be at the tea shop Vonne’s mother, Francine, owns when the news is delivered.
Vonne left a trail of men behind her so the suspects are many–but the clues are few. A broken teacup leads Katie to one of the suspects, but before she can investigate, she’s attacked. Katie may be closing in on a killer, but time is ticking because the killer is definitely closing in on her.
“I really can’t praise Yule Be Dead enough. This book has it all: great characters, a romance (perhaps a love triangle?), a mother-in-law, and a fantastic mystery plot. What more could a lover of cozy mysteries desire. I give this book five stars!
Jojeana Marie performs the audio narration of this book as in the previous books in the series, and as always does a teriffic job. She takes an already effectively written book and make it seem even more realistic, impressing me thoroughly.”
