Yuletide Homicide in New York City
Gerry Porter visits her hometown, New York City, expecting to help a friend run a major crafts fair, but finds herself involved in cases of
theft and possible "gray murder."
“Grace rounds out this delightful seasonal cozy with some
miniature tips on making doll-house furniture and accessories
from everyday objects.” —Publishers Weekly 2/16/15
As soon as Gerry Porter and her eleven-year-old granddaughter, Maddie, arrive in Manhattan, there are signs of trouble. Gerry is pulled in opposite directions by two old friends: Cynthia Bishop, who wants her to investigate a beloved aunt’s recent death, and Bebe Mellon, who expects her to spend the week assisting at a giant crafts fair—which is the reason for the Christmas-time trip. And Maddie has her own expectations and agenda, often centered around solving “A Case” as well as sightseeing. Gerry and Maddie ultimately manage to satisfy everyone, accomplishing what the 35,000-strong NYPD failed to do—but not before danger stalks the pair.
