Killer Holiday by Amy Korman
It's the holiday season and Kristen Clark and her quirky circle of friends are looking forward to the festivities. The Striped Awning is ready for business with Bourbon Blitzens for customers searching for the perfect gift. Yet not everyone is singing a joyous tune. Ex-mafia wife Sophie Shields barely misses being shot by a man dressed as Santa. Luckily, her favorite designer purse shields her from the errant bullet. The next victim is Chip Delaney, the proud owner of the local golf shop. His car window is smashed with a 5-iron along with a ransom note requesting $50,000 in exchange for Chip's safe return.
On the heels of a luxury cruise paid for by the proceeds of a powerball jackpot, Eula Morris graces the town with her presence. Lagging behind her is a familiar gent who the ladies believe is up to no good along with a Samsonite suitcase laden with gold bars. When the suitcase goes missing, Eula enlists the aid of Kristen, Bootsie, and friends to find its whereabouts. Is it a coincidence that Chip has gone missing and so have the gold bars? Will the holiday bring good cheer for the Bryn Mawr gang, or will they find coal in their stockings on Christmas morning?
