A Killer's Christmas in Wales



As the townsfolk of the Welsh valley town of Llanelen settle in for the snowiest winter in 25 years, an American stranger arrives. Harry Saunders charms the ladies and one in particular–Evelyn Lloyd, the town’s former post mistress who was left comfortably off after the death of her husband. Harry convinces Mrs. Lloyd to invest money with him. Then he goes missing, as does her money. His body is soon discovered outside the walls of Conwy Castle, a letter opener belonging to Mrs. Lloyd in his back.
Penny Brannigan is busy with the grand opening of her new spa, but that doesn't stop Mrs. Lloyd from desperately seeking her help to prove her innocence.
Elizabeth J. Duncan completely charms with this next in the delightful cozy series.

Killer Sweet Tooth
by Gayle Trent


Dead as a . . . dentist?
They say sugar is bad for your teeth, but can it actually kill you? The Brea Ridge police seem to think so when they find cake decorator Daphne Martin wielding an oversized plastic toothbrush over a dentist’s dead body. Daphne moved back to her small Virginia hometown just months ago to open her Daphne’s Delectable Cakes business and already she’s been mixed up in murder. Now she’s got to prove her sweet innocence again.
After hours of police questioning, Daphne returns home to find Elvis Presley in her driveway. She’s certain she’s hallucinating until the leather-clad hunk orders up a pink Cadillac cake for a convention of the Elvis impersonators. Daphne accepts, but her reporter-boyfriend Ben is suspicious of Elvis’s intentions. Does the King want to make Daphne his confectionery queen? Or is the convention a ruse for a more sinister operation? Daphne’s own investigation into Dr. Bainsworth’s murder, meanwhile, reveals the dentist made as many enemies as he did fillings. Just about anyone could have done him in, but it’s up to Daphne to find the killer—and finish Elvis’s cake—before she’s the one singing “Jailhouse Rock.”
