It’s a white Christmas in Haven Harbor, Maine! But there’s no time for Angie Curtis and her beau, Patrick West, to linger under the mistletoe. Patrick’s mother, Hollywood actress Skye West, has suddenly announced she’ll be spending the holidays at Aurora, her Maine estate – and she’ll be bring her director, screenwriters, and two actors with her from Scotland, where she’s filming.
And – oh, yes – she’s looking forward to a Currier & Ives New England Christmas – complete with sleigh rides and carolers, a completely decorated home, a live-in cook to supply holiday fare --- and personalized needlepointed pillows for each of her guests.
And she’ll be arriving in three days.
Angie promises to help Patrick, who is totally overwhelmed, and she finds fellow Mainely Needlepointers to help out, too. So all is set by the time Skye and her guests arrive. Only … within hours someone has been murdered. And then … were those Christmas cookies poisoned? Of course, you could count on at least a small blizzard and loss of power to complicate life. But Christmas celebrations must go on, right? Even if they include detectives … and Angie, who’s determined to find out what’s happening.
