The SantaConviction: A Keeping Up With the Joneses Cozy Mystery

There’s been a ho-ho-homicide in Whistler Village.
When my scheming cousin, Holly, signs me up for an exclusive dating app and I match with Hollywood Heartthrob Gabriel D’Angelo, things couldn’t be better. Until I finally come face to face with him — and he’s dead.
Then Holly is arrested for the crime, but I know she’s innocent, and Gabe’s publicist needs answers, and fast before the press finds out.
Together with Logan, Gabe’s best friend, and former marine, we manage to convince him to hold off the media while we work to free Holly and clear Gabe’s name.
But as we whittle down the suspects will we find the killer, or will the killer find us first?
This is the perfect cozy mystery for fans of light, funny, fast-paced who-dunnits.
