Kris’ contribution to this multi-genre anthology of holiday-themed short stories (entertaining at any time of year!) is “The Merriest of Murders.” A California senator’s holiday party might be just the place for lobbyist Maren Kane to put a bad break-up behind her and meet someone new. Until Santa turns up dead in the senator’s pool and Maren’s a suspect! Agatha Christie meets House of Cards under the mistletoe.
“I’m not usually much of a short story fan but this collection offered a varied and enjoyable introduction to these authors and I admired their ability to make the characters and stories come alive and feel complete. I intended to test one or two of the stories and ended up settling in for an evening of escape into holiday tales spanning sizzle, sentimental, fantasy, mysterious, and a new take on ghost from Christmas past. A fun night de-stressing while playing hooky from chores, and I have some new authors to explore.” (Amazon Review)
