Deck The Halls With Fudge!
When the owner Liam McMurphy died this past Spring, his granddaughter Allie moved in and I've spent the last few months helping her have a successful first tourist season. It was during this time that I met and married the love of my life, Douglas Devaney. He and I have finally moved out of my old condo and into our new little house on the island.
We both love Mackinac Island in all it's seasons. Now it is the Christmas season and Allie has decided to keep the McMurphy open to a select few tourists. I'm thankful because it helps keep Douglas and I active in the community.
The oddest thing happened to me the other day. I was unpacking in the kitchen and looked out the window to see a horse drawn sleigh drive down the road. Suddenly the man inside the sleigh falls out and the sleigh runs him over and keeps going!
By the time Douglas and I reach the man, he is dead, the sleigh is gone and the mystery of who would do such a terrible thing begins. Usually, it's Allie who solves a murder mystery but since I witnessed the accident, I feel it's my time to investigate. After all, who knows more about the island and it's residents than a senior citizen who has lived there her whole life?
Deck The Halls With Fudge is a promotional e-novella for the Christmas season.
I know it's a little early, but the holidays start soon. So dear reader, what is your favorite holiday and why? I would love to know. Cheers, Frances
