Description Sarah Booth Delaney might need a Christmas miracle to solve her latest killer case. . . The holidays are just around the corner and Sarah Booth and Tinkie are preparing for a merry celebration. Sarah Booth busies herself decking the halls and planning her perfect smooch under the mistletoe with Sheriff Coleman Peters. But when journalist Cece Dee Falcon shows up needing Sarah Booth's help--there's been a local kidnapping--the mood takes a sharp turn from festive to frightful. "Haines's longtime admirers will be thrilled to spend the holidays with their favorite characters. New readers looking for an engaging story can start here."-- Library Journal A box has been left at Cece's front porch containing a lock of hair, a photograph of a very pretty and very pregnant young woman, and a note demanding ransom. The victim is actually Cece's cousin's daughter, Eve. And time is running out for Sarah Booth, Tinkie, and Coleman to solve the mystery behind the kidnapping before Eve meets her maker on what was supposed to be the jolliest and, for Sarah Booth, most romantic day of the year.
