Tis the season for mayhem and mystery . . .
Kristin Clark and her offbeat crew of Bryn Mawr pals are ready for a festive holiday—one that involves sipping Blitzen’s Bourbons by a yule log, hot guys beneath the mistletoe, and a holiday cabaret starring ex-Mafia wife Sophie Shields. But this year, Saint Nick has something more dangerous in store.
A stranger dressed as Santa has Kristin’s friends on his naughty list. First, Sophie’s favorite handbag is blasted by a bullet. Then, Father Christmas shatters local golf-shop owner Chip Delaney’s car window with a 5-iron and leaves a threatening note demanding $50,000. When Chip goes missing, the stakes become deadly.
Much-hated Powerball winner Eula Morris is also back from a luxury cruise, more boastful than ever and toting a handsome new boyfriend (who looks oddly familiar), as well as a Samsonite filled with gold bars. When the suitcase is snatched, Eula implores Kristin and the gang to track it down.
Is Chip on the run, or was he kidnapped? And who stole Eula’s gold? The Killer WASPs and Kristin’s basset hound, Waffles, are on the case—before this white Christmas turns dark . . .

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Just over novella length, this short book is the final in this series for now. Kristin Clark owns an antique store that isn't doing well, so she ends up spending her time solving mysteries in this Pennsylvania town. Along with her large cast of characters they end up embroiled in one another's messes and antics. As I mentioned yesterday it was some time between reading book one and two and then reading three and four. I had the same feeling when I read this book as the previous. They felt less edited and finessed than the previous two. I don't that it is particularly the book's fault or more my reading tastes have changed.
Loved it. What a great book
This is the fourth book in a series that started with Killer Wasps, and continues with Killer Getaway and Killer Punch. You don't need to read the other books to enjoy this one. Killer Holidays finds a group of amateur detectives who are trying to solve the mystery of a gun-toting Santa and a missing and very valuable suitcase. The detectives find investigating to be very thirsty work that takes them to dive bars, fancy restaurants, and a tropical spa. Romance is also on the friends' minds and all's well that ends well for these sleuths.
