Tis the season for mayhem and mystery…
Kristin Clark and her offbeat crew of Bryn Mawr socialites are ready for a fun and festive winter holiday—one that involves sipping martinis by a crackling yule log, hot guys beneath the mistletoe, and Gucci under the Christmas tree. But this year, Old Saint Nick has something more dangerous in store.
A stranger dressed in a Santa suit has Kristin’s friends on his naughty list. First, Sophie’s favorite handbag is blasted by a bullet. Then, Father Christmas shatters her brother Chip’s car window with a golf club and leaves a threatening note demanding fifty grand. Both are convinced it has to be a mistake. But when Chip goes missing, the stakes become deadly.
Eula Morris is also back in town for the holidays, more bossy and boastful than ever after winning a mega-jackpot in the lottery. She’s returned from a luxury cruise around the world with a handsome new boyfriend (who looks oddly familiar…) and a Samsonite suitcase filled with gold bars. When the suitcase is snatched, Eula implores Kristin and the team to track it down.
Where is Chip? Why is a vengeful Santa targeting the gang? Who stole Eula’s suitcase? And how are these events linked? The WASPs and Kristen’s basset hound Waffles are on the case—before this white Christmas turns even darker…

I needed a break from what I’ve been reading and saw Killer Holiday was up for review so I grabbed it. Boy am I glad I did. Killer Holiday was the perfect break, a bit like a mash-up of an Agatha Christie novel and Clueless.
What I liked: I really enjoyed the laid back, fun nature of Killer Holiday. Even though it was a mystery, it was a relaxing book to read. (However, I would NOT call it a Cozy, just a mystery.)
Take a break and enjoy this holiday themed winding mystery. A who-done-it where people are missing, it’s a mystery what will happen next, and the mastermind behind the scheming isn’t clear until the end!
What I didn’t like: I didn’t have an issue necessarily, but I do need to let you know that there is a bit of foul language and a lot of alcohol. There wasn’t a lot of foul language but it was enough to keep me from sharing Killer Holiday with my conservative Christian Mystery readers. As far as alcohol, there is a lot of drinking, BUT rarely, if any, drunkenness. So, it’s responsible use but not something all of my readers are ok with.
