Season's Greetings: Whodunit?
Santa Claus is coming to town, but guess who’s coming first to Haines Tavern, Kentucky – Great-Aunt Kit. If Sheila and her fellow amateur detective Clara want to give her author relative what she most wants this Christmas, they’ll wrap up a murder investigation -- with a mysterious victim, intriguing suspects, and suspicious twists. Because this time, Kit wants to be involved firsthand in solving a suspenseful puzzle.
The police – including Sheila’s romantic interest – want the amateur investigators to stand down. But how can they when the clues hit so close to home?
Sheila’s Christmas cookie recipe is the apparent murder weapon, in the hands of one of the small town’s quirky characters and one of the favorite humans of Sheila’s rescue dog, Gracie the rough collie. She can’t disappoint her pet by stopping her detective work short of the thrilling answer to Whodunit?
Kit also has ideas on solving Sheila’s romantic relationship with detective-once-more Teague O’Donnell, starting with revealing her most dangerous secret. But he’s keeping secrets of his own. By New Years, will this be a Christmas season love story to remember? Or a Grinch of a solution?
Yuletide clues will keep Sheila, Clara, Kit -- and you – guessing as all celebrate the season in Book 8 of the Secret Sleuth mystery series by USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn.
If you’re new to this page-turner cozy mystery series with humor, don’t miss its start, when Sheila encounters murder on a transatlantic cruise ship in Death on the Diversion. Then follow her to dry land in Death on Torrid Avenue and the gripping books that follow, because mysteries and deception abound in her new Kentucky home.

Caught Dead in Wyoming series
The Innocence Trilogy
Just started it- Holidays got in the way of reading. But so far, so good- as expected for a Patricia McLinn book.
Romantic relationships, family secrets, and murder. Another great Secret Sleuth mystery from Ms McLinn.
I really love reading the books and plan to continue. The plots are intricate and characters fun to read about. I am however getting a little frustrated with the Romance. This is book 8 and they are still fencing with each other. You have hinted in the previous books that something will happen with Shiela’s big secret.
Maybe book 9, please?
