Super organizer Ellie Avery could really use some Christmas cheer when Gabrielle Matheson, a grinchy professional rival, sets up shop in the same small Georgia town. But before the halls are even halfway decked with holly, someone uses Ellie’s terrifically tasteless white elephant swap gift as…a murder weapon!
Ellie’s now a suspect. Besides playing Mrs. Santa for her Air Force pilot husband and their two kids, shielding her eyes from the garishly over-decorated house down the street, and helping a client who’s a hardcore hoarder, Ellie also has to solve this ho-ho-homicide…and find a killer who wishes her a very deadly Christmas.
Don’t miss Ellie Avery’s great tips for a relaxed and stress-free holiday season!
“Sara Rosett’s Ellie Avery series is a winner. Rosett always delivers a terrific mystery with believable characters and lots of heart. The insider look at the life of a military spouse makes this series a fascinating read. I look forward to each new book.”
--Denise Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of the Scumble River and Devereaux’s Dime mystery series.
"Sara Rosett once again presents readers with intriguing characters, a strong setting, more than a dash of humor and a suspenseful plot that ably keeps us guessing until the end. No mean achievement!
Yet, what places her sleuth, Air Force wife Ellie Avery, at the top of my list are the poignant descriptions of what military families face every day, bringing an essential reminder of their sacrifices to us all, especially at this time of year."
--Katherine Hall Page, Agatha Award-winning author of The Body in the Boudoir

Mistletoe, Merriment, and Murder by Sara Rosett
Have enjoyed other mystery books by this author and this one is around Chrimstas.
Starts out with a military spouses gift exchange at Elle's house and she meets up with another pro organizer, such as her career and finds out Gabrielle is taking her clients from her and has gotten the new job.
Things around town are dire, house breakin's, and now a murder. Elle is suspected as the clues lead to others who have allibi's. She helps to solve the mystery with clues of her own and asking others questions.
Love how the community works, helping one another, especailly Helping Hands organization to provide food and other essentail thing.
What I also liked about this book si the organizing tips for Christmas especially in every other chapter and other tips and notes.
Lots of characters but it's easy to keep them all straight. Excerpt from the next new book at the end.
I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review
