Make room for murder with all the trimmings in the latest of the Pennyfoot Hotel Christmas mystery series.
It’s the holiday season and the Pennyfoot staff is brimming with anticipation. The scents of the season overflow from the kitchen and the country club’s halls are decorated with festive displays thanks to Cecily’s dear friend Madeline. But when one of Cecily’s candlesticks disappears, she realizes someone is lacking in Christmas spirit.
Petty thievery seems the least of Cecily’s problems after she learns a former employee has been found dead in her duck pond. He hasn’t worked at the Pennyfoot in years, but his ex-wife is still their head maid-and now she heads the list of suspects. And when Madeline has a vision of more misfortune to come, Cecily starts feeling more jinxed than jolly. Now a killer and a thief must be taken off the guest list in order to put the merry back into Christmas.
