(The second book in the Cassie Desmarais Mystery series)
A novel by

Just as Harmony Bay dusts off its holiday cheer, Cassie Desmarais finds herself whisked into another confectionery conundrum. The festive season at Bon Appétit promises a blend of buttercream delights and secret santa surprises. But when a mysterious note intended for Cassie leads to the discovery of a body in the snow, the holiday spirit sours, and Cassie realizes this winter wonderland harbors a chilling secret.

As the town's twinkling lights dim with suspicion, Cassie, alongside her childhood best friend Mia and the ever-dashing Detective Sam Cooper, must unwrap a series of cryptic clues tied with a bow of deceit. The list of suspects grows longer than Santa's, each harboring motives as layered as Cassie's famed holiday pastries.

With her knack for kneading through lies and a recipe for sleuthing, Cassie plunges into the investigation, stirring up hidden vendettas and long-buried secrets. The closer she gets to the truth, the more she risks becoming the next victim on the killer's silent night list.

Welcome back to the snow-dusted streets of Harmony Bay, where holiday traditions face a deadly twist, and the search for truth is the most precious gift of all. Join Cassie as she balances the scales of justice and pastry, proving once again that in this quaint town, murder is no match for a woman with a mixer and a mission.
