Bliss, Texas, is gearing up for its annual Winter Wonderland festival, but when a mysterious Scrooge ends the merriment with murder, it’ll take more than a ghost from Christmas past to set things right.
Designing a holiday fashion show set in the town’s most prominent historic mansion seems like a job tailor made for dressmaker Harlow Jane Cassidy. But with the mansion’s restoration still in progress and threatening weather on the horizon, she’s feeling on pins and needles more than reveling in holiday cheer.
Having volunteered to play Santa in this year’s festival, Dan Lee Chrisson was ready to move on after his divorce—until Bliss became his final resting place. Discovering his body puts Harlow at the scene of the crime. She’ll need plenty of help from friends and even her late great-grandmother’s spirited sleuthing if she’s to have a ghost of a chance of catching a killer who’s just jumped to the top of the naughty list….

Review title: Sewing Secrets.
For a small town this place has plenty of "little secrets" "sown" into their history as well as their present. If you think this novel is just about the main character's sewing abilities you will be surprised by what she "sews" together just by listening to her new neighbors and friends from the past. A great way to spend the weekend is in store for readers of this mystery at the Winter Wonderland fashion show. Readers will enjoy plenty of "cross stitches" and "threading" through secrets to unravel the culprit in this suspense, just when you think you know the prime suspect a new one pops-up.
