WHAT DOES

CHRISTMAS TASTE LIKE?

This is how HOLIDAY GRIND opens: Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi gathers her baristas around her and asks, “What does Christmas taste like?” Their answers help Clare create a wildly popular menu of Fa-la-la-la-lattes for her landmark shop. But the happy holidays quickly turn deadly when Clare finds a sidewalk charity Santa Claus named Alf Glockner gunned down in a snowy alley. Convinced his death was more than the tragic result of a random mugging, Clare sets out to find the heartless Kringle killer.

Christmas Tree New York City

*
There’s nothing cozier than a winter evening in Greenwich Village. Streetlights shimmer through icy flakes. Cafés glow with welcoming warmth. Boots crunch along cobblestones, and a layer of snow dusts historic townhouses like powdered sugar on holiday confections. Murder has no place
in such a pretty picture, until now…

santa_warming_up_by_chimney_md_clr

Coffeehouse manager Clare Cosi has grown very fond of Alfred Glockner, the part-time comic and genuinely jolly charity Santa who’s been using her Village Blend as a place to warm his mittens. When she finds him brutally gunned down in a nearby alley, a few subtle clues convince her that Alfred’s death was something more than the tragic result of a random mugging—the conclusion of the police.

fireplace_stockings_md_clrWith Clare’s boyfriend, NYPD Detective Mike Quinn, distracted by a cold case of his own, and ex-husband Matt investigating this year’s holiday lingerie catalogs (an annual event), Clare charges ahead solo and discovers Santa had a list that he was checking twice—and the folks on it were not very nice. Then someone tries to ice Clare, and she really gets steamed.

Between baking delicious holiday goodies and fending off the attentions of a persistent professional elf, Clare sets out to solve Santa’s slaying. But she’d better watch out, because if she fails to stop this stone cold killer, she may just get the biggest chill of her life.
