Gingerdead Man (A Five-Ingredient Mystery)

No reviews
"Plenty of red herrings, mixed motives, and recipes for foodies make for a spirited holiday cozy."
Kirkus Reviews

When Santa is sleighed by a poison gingerbread cookie at a holiday party, Val Denistons reputation is on the line . . .

This holiday season Bayport, Maryland, is a dead ringer for Victorian London. Val and her grandfather are taking part in the Dickens of a Holiday festival. Val is hosting a private tea party serving the festivals costumed volunteers, who range from Dickens divas like Madame Defarge and Miss Havisham to Ebenezer Scrooge and old St. Nick himself.

But one costumed reveler may have gotten the holidays mixed up. The winner of the creepiest outfit, robed in black with a gift bag covering the head--okay, Ghost of Christmas Present, Val gets it--hands out gingerbread men with white icing skeleton bones. This years sour Santa has none of the big fellows mirth but plenty of his appetite, and its no secret Santa loves cookies. But when the man in red turns blue, Val and Granddad have a cookie-cutter killer to catch before the New Year . . .

Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!


"Grandad is a hoot and his jobs as a food reviewer and part-time detective provide endless possibilities for fun and murder . . . Charming."
--Kirkus Reviews
