Christmas at the castle wouldn't be the same without a little slaying...

It's almost Christmas at Audley Castle in the picture-perfect village of Audley St. Mary, and I'm looking forward to a fun, festive time. The Douglas fir in the grand hallway is festooned with decorations, presents sit under the frosted branches, fires crackle in fireplaces, and there's snow.

So much snow! I'm a fan of a little festive frosting, but fifteen inches falling in less than a day means flights get canceled, roads are blocked, and plans change. But I'm determined to make the best of things, including helping Princess Alice learn how to frost Christmas cupcakes.

When Alice's former school friends surprise us by making it through the blizzard, they bring fizz and chatter, some of it not so merry and bright. The friend with the sharpest tongue, Delphine Augustus, is silenced forever when she's discovered dead in her bed on the night of her arrival.

Was it an overdose, or does the cake Princess Alice made that's been smeared across the victim's face hold a worrying clue?

With Campbell Milligan, the head of castle security, bedridden after a car accident, the phone lines down, and no one's mobile working, I'm put in charge of figuring out what happened to Delphine!

With my trusty four-legged sidekick by my side (and my new husband), I'm determined to find the killer and ensure this Christmas is remembered for all the right reasons.

***
Enjoy this snowed-in festive special featuring Holly Holmes and Meatball, set in a stunning English castle. Expect an overdose of Christmas treats, a mystery as twisty as a candy cane, and a dollop of puzzle cream so tempting, you'll have to read Mint Frosting and Murder in one sitting.

This is book 9 in the Holmes Holmes cozy culinary mystery series. It's a complete mystery and can be read as a standalone. It's a perfect read to bring a smile to your face as you sip hot chocolate and indulge in some festive food.
