When her friend Georgia Hallerbee asks Phyllis to have her house featured in the annual Christmas Jingle Bell Tour of Homes, Phyllis is equally flattered and flustered. She already has a bridal shower on Christmas Eve and a wedding on New Year's Eve to prepare for, and she's been baking gingerbread cookies as if they're going out of style. But like her tasty treats, she rises to the occasion. Before the tour can even get under way, Phyllis hears a crash on her front porch and makes a gruesome discovery. Someone has broken a decorative gingerbread man over Georgia's head. Santa's naughty list just got longer-- and with the police baffled, it's up to Phyllis to catch a half-baked killer.

I enjoy this series main reason the characters are older and are good friends who are there for each other.

I enjoy this author's book "tour" mystery series & saw this book at the library & grabbed it. I haven't read the other books in this series, so I can't really give it much of a comparison. But, I thought the novel was great- the mystery aspect I didn't figure out until right before the author/main character told me who did it. That's really rare. And, the book is just well written and not aimed at an 8th grade reading level. It's easy to read, but not full of tiny short sentences. I also enjoyed the main character being older, I read so many books with the main character being in their twenties or thirties. Fun read, probably best to read in the fall or near Christmas as it has a Christmas setting.
