Holiday time is party time in New York City, but after a sparkling winter bash ends with a murder, Village Blend coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi vows to put the killer on ice…

At the Great New York Cookie Swap, pastry chefs bake up their very best for charity. Clare is in charge of the beverage service, and her famous Fa-la-la-la Lattes make the gathering even merrier. But her high spirits come crashing down to earth, when she discovers the battered body of a hard-working baker’s assistant.

Police suspect a serial attacker whose escalating crimes have become known as “The Christmas Stalkings.” Clare’s boyfriend, NYPD detective Mike Quinn, finds reason to believe even more sinister forces are involved. Clare isn’t so sure—and when she finds a second bludgeoned baker, she becomes a target. Now Clare is spending the holiday season pouring over clues, and she’s not going to rest until justice is served.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Clare Cosi whose getting the Vilage Blend ready for Christmas with a Cookie Swap when her worker ends up dead. Who killed Moirin and why?  Was it someone from her past or from her present?  As the book progresses someone else winds up dead and Clare is sifting through the clues to find the Grinch this holiday season!

I love the Village Blend with Clare's friends and family and this one didn't disappoint. This one had Clare going all over to find out who the killer is as well as getting information from her boyfriend Mike Quinn whose now in D.C. The truth to the whole situation was shocking in itself!  Can't wait to see what is next for Clare, Mike and everyone else at the Village Blend!
