The Daley Weekly

November 25, 2020




I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Ken and I are staying safe and staying home so we bought a small turkey and will make limited sides. I'll miss the family this year but am looking forward to taking the day off and relaxing. Hopefully by next year the world will have returned to some sort of normalcy and large family gatherings will be possible once again.

KRL has a review and giveaway from Turkey in the Trap-Room -

Cottage on Gooseberry Bay: Gooseberry Christmas is now live and a fun holiday read. Be sure to grab a copy if you haven't already. Links for all four formats are provided in the body of the newsletter. 

There was an adjustment to the pets list in the mini mystery so be sure to check it out carefully before deciding on your answer. The rafflecopter only runs through the end of the day on Thursday so be sure to get your answer in early.

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:
Mashed potatoes
Sweet potatoes
Fried potatoes
Sweet rolls
Sourdough rolls
Pumpkin pie
Chocolate pie
Pecan pie
Pets brought as guests:
Tiny Horse
Miniature pig
The killer did not bring a rat or a rabbit
The victim did not bring a fish, a turtle, or a tiny horse  
The killer did not bring a dog or a cat
Greg was not the victim and Victor was not the killer

Use the clues provided all week to determine which guest was the killer, which guest was the victim, and which type of pet they each brought to the dinner. Once you have your answer enter it in the rafflecopter provided in the following format: (Name) who brought a (pet) as a guest was the killer while (name) who brought the (pet) as a guest was the victim. Be sure to type in your entire answer before you hit return or Rafflecopter will kick you out.

Ken and I will be sending out Christmas Postcards again this year. We will mail internationally so everyone can participate.

If you would like to receive a Christmas postcard simply send your full mailing address to
(We need a snail mail address and not an email address)

We will begin mailing these out around Thanksgiving. The deadline to request a postcard is December 10th.
