The Daley Weekly

December 8, 2021


The decorating is complete, the gifts purchased, and the baking is planned. Now it's time for some holiday fun! Ken and I usually make a short list of things we'd like to do during the holiday season and then try to fit in as many items from the list as we can. Nothing elaborate but we've found that if we don't make a deliberate intention to have some fun, then fun is the one thing that seems to be overlooked. 

The big news this week is that Santa Who? is live in paperback and hardcover. The Kindle version goes live next Tuesday, and the audio should be live by then as well. It's the only Christmas themed book I wrote this year and I really enjoyed spending the holiday in Gooseberry Bay. I hope you will too.

I'm currently working on the new Tess and Tilly which should publish in March or April. After that I plan to start right in on The Inn at Holiday Bay: Lantern in the Lighthouse and then will be moving on to Rescue Alaska: Finding Motive.

A Cat in the Attic: The Curse of Hollister House is available in audio and A Cat in the Attic: The Mystery Before Christmas will be available in audio in a week or two.

There is a new mystery this month that may seem familiar to some of you since I have used it in the past but I changed things up so the answer is different. The clues for the mystery will be delivered on December 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th. You will need the clues from all five weeks to solve the mystery. If you miss any of the newsletters you can find the archived copies on my webpage:

Remember to enter this week's Rafflecopter and that Rafflecopter's are only live until the end of the day on Thursday. The winner is selected on Friday.

Be sure to scan down the entire newsletter. There are important notices and links you won't want to miss.

As always, be sure to enter for a chance to win this weeks gift card giveaway. The entry form is provided toward the bottom of the newsletter. 


Just in time for Christmas

The Decorating Party
The neighbors living on Santa Clause Lane take their responsibility to live up to the street name seriously and go all out decorating the houses along the lane every year. This year the group was organized and assigned tasks for groups of two neighbors, who ideally would work together. All the pairs completed their tasks with the exception of one pair who got caught up in a snowball fight and never got around to decorating. Using the clues below, identify which pair of neighbors did not complete their task and what task it was they were supposed to complete.
