Christmas shorts 2020 is a collection of three short stories which can be enjoyed by all but have specifically been created to provide an epilogue of sorts for three of my series which wrapped up in the past year or so. These single chapter shorts run between 25 – 30 print pages each and take place over a one to two day period.
A Christmas Haunting
Haunting by the Sea
Faced with a life altering decision, Amanda is visited by the ghost of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Of course in this case, all three ghosts are played by alter ego Alyson, who has a vested interest in ensuring that the decision Amanda makes will be the one which will allow them both to live their happily ever after.
Hunt for Christmas
A Sand and Sea Mystery
It’s just a week until Christmas and things are slow at Pope Investigations. Lani is having a hard time finding the Christmas spirit until Kekoa brings her one final case before they break for the holiday. It seems that a woman wants to hire Pope Investigations to find an angel tree topper that was mistakenly donated to the local church for their yard sale five years prior. The tree topper was a gift to the woman’s grandmother when she fled Germany nearly eighty years ago. At first Lani is conflicted about taking on the nearly impossible case until she realizes a mystery such as this might very well provide the distraction she needs from tangled emotions relating to the oh so sexy cowboy she tried to forget but can’t seem to live without.
Legacy in Paradise
Tj Jensen Mystery
With Christmas just around the corner, Tj is faced with the task of finding the perfect gift for her rich husband who already has everything. After a bit of thought she comes up with the idea of a scrapbook chronicling the Collins Family history. Kyle hadn’t known he was a Collins until after the last Collins living in America had died and left him his entire estate. Being the sort of guy who’s all about roots and family, Tj realizes that a gift of family really might turn out to be the best gift of all.
The Thanksgiving Feast
Twelve family members gathered for Thanksgiving dinner. Each guest brought a different dish to share and each guest was accompanied by their favorite pet. By the end of the evening one of the guests was found dead in the arboretum. Use the clues provided on November 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th to figure out which guest was the killer, which guest was the victim, and which type of pet they each brought.
Dishes brought to share:
Pets brought as guests:
Hannah brought pumpkin pie while Sarah brought pecan pie
Anna brought her rabbit and carrots to share and was not the victim
Justin brought sourdough rolls and was not the killer
The victim did not bring potatoes of any sort
Ken and I will be sending out Christmas Postcards again this year. We will mail internationally so everyone can participate.
