A CUP OF HOLIDAY FEAR - Bakeshop Cozy Mystery series #10

In CUP OF HOLIDAY FEAR,  Jules and Helen host their annual staff party at the historic Winchester Inn’s Dickens Feast. The six-course dinner is a beloved tradition. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and even a cheerless Ebenezer Scrooge delight dinner guests with jokes, and surprise gifts. However, just as the dessert course is to be served the power goes out. When the lights return, one of the guests is sprawled out in front of the twenty-foot Christmas tree. Suddenly, Jules finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. Her only wish this Christmas is to catch a killer.

Cozy mystery author, Ellie Alexander, is a Pacific Northwest native who spends ample time testing a multitude of pastry and other recipes in her home kitchen or at one of the many famed coffeehouses nearby.  In addition to the murder and intrigue, each book in the Bakeshop Mystery Series contains delicious recipes. Ellie also writes the Pacific Northwest Mystery Series and Rose City Mysteries (Kensington Books) as Kate Dyer-Seeley.
