About this ebook

From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes a hilarious holiday whodunit!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Unless you’re Sally Muccio.


The full-time baker and sometime sleuth is ready to burst into song. She and her husband are expecting a bundle of joy, her sister’s wedding is just around the corner, and it’s Christmas, her favorite time of year. But when Sal’s the victim of a carjacking by Santa himself and a forgotten item links her to a murder, she doesn’t feel like ho-ho-hoing anymore.


Damian Ruger was a drug user, womanizer and first-class jerk. And unfortunately for Sal, she once had a connection to him in high school. The dough really hits the fan when her bakery's gingerbread cookies are found next to his dead body, and Sal's cake server is used as a murder weapon. Someone is trying to frame the expectant mother, but why? Sal has no choice but to try to clear her name...before she and the baby are singing Christmas carols in prison!

I love this addition to the series. I have no idea how Ms. Bruns comes up with these plots but she has outdone herself in Ginger Snapped to Death. All of Sally's zany family is back. It is Christmas and Sally keeps tripping over Jolly-less Santas. Sally is nine months pregnant, the matron of honor in her sister's upcoming Christmas eve wedding, carjacked, a suspect in a murder, and has no customers at Sally's Samples. You do not want to miss this book! I could not put it down.
