Ms America and the Whoopsie in Winona

(The fourth book in the Beauty Queen Mystery series)
A novel by

(Beauty Queen Mysteries #4) Beauty queen Happy Pennington loves Christmas, but this year murder gets in the way of the tinsel and the candy canes ...

In snowy small-town Minnesota - where Happy and her beauty-queen BFFs are cutting the ribbon at a new big-box store - Happy discovers that nothing, and no one, is what it seems. Society matrons worship Norse goddesses. Victorian mansions hide salacious secrets. And prominent families feud in the strangest ways. Maybe that's why Happy's host ends up dead.

Just in time, heartthrob Mario Suave swoops in to help Happy any way he can - especially under the mistletoe. That mystery, too, is Happy's to unwrap ...

Find out why readers call this a "laugh-out-loud" mystery series that's "superfab fun."

Author Diana Dempsey never competed in beauty pageants but she did the next best thing: she worked in TV news. After a dozen years as an Emmy-winning anchor and reporter, Diana hung up her mic to become an author of fast and fun romantic fiction.

Her novels have been called "almost impossible to put down" (Romance Reviews Today), "skillfully plotted and filled with realistic detail" (Library Journal), and "spicy, sexy, and sultry" (Booklist). Her first novel was nominated for a RITA award for Best First Book by Romance Writers of America; another was a Top Pick of Romantic Times; a third was a selection of the Doubleday Book Club.
