The holidays are always magical in Ashton Falls. This is a town built on tradition and steeped with history.
In this 11th Zoe Donovan novel we get to appreciate some of both.
What makes Christmas even more enjoyable? Of course snow and children!

Zoe, Ellie and Levi have been best friends forever. Whatever one of them gets involved with, the other two are sure to lend a hand. Levi is being "punished" by Principal Lame for not having completed enough adjunct hours.
He puts Levi in charge of overseeing the Christmas tree sales lot which is a school fundraiser.
Fortunately Levi, being the football coach, is popular among the students, so his team, the cheerleaders, and his friends all pitch in to help make the tree lot a success. There are lights, music, refreshments and even Santa on a sleigh, along with temporary volunteer elves. It looks so good the school newspaper counselor comes out to take photos and decides she will make it a full spread.

What ends up being the news headline is that the teacher, Mrs. Jolly, is murdered on the tree lot one night.
It appears that Levi is being framed for the murder. In looking for clues to help clear her friend, Zoe discovers that not much is known about poor Mrs. Jolly. She led a very quiet life, kept to herself, and enjoyed doing good for others. Still, no one knew much about her and had no idea why anyone would want her dead.

As Zoe and her colorful townspeople friends try to figure out a motive for Mrs. Jolly's murder, Christmas is coming closer day by day. There is a town holiday festival to attend and other social gatherings. Relationship issues need some attention. Zoe's fiance, Zak, has volunteered to host 9 year old Scooter during holiday vacation while his parents are away for work. Scooter brings along Alex, a school friend whose parents are also away. She is a delightful surprise who seems much more mature than her 9 years. It is heartwarming when we do see her act as a child and get excited about childlike things. It is also through Alex and a found diary in the attic that we learn more about the history of Ashton Falls.

Even grouchy sheriff Salinger seems to have a little bit of holiday spirit as he grumblingly shares information with Zoe. I had to smile at their exchange where Zoe explains how it will work out with information sharing.

I enjoy all of the novels in this series. I do think you'll have a better understanding of this one if you have read #10 before this, Turkeys, Tuxes, and Tabbies, but it can be read as a stand alone novel.
And the ending definitely sets us up for the next in the series, Alaskan Alliance.

I won a copy of this ebook from an online contest, but I love this series and recommend it to all cozy mystery lovers or readers of small town fiction. ( )
