Overview

"Lourey creates a splendid mix of humor and suspense." ―Booklist

With Christmas just over a week away, 'tis the season for grinning elves, maddeningly jolly Muzak, and a guilty Nut Goodie addiction. But the holidays are marred by something far worse―a serial killer leaving candy canes as his calling card.

His target? Thirty-something brunettes who look just like Mira James. When a woman from her high school graduating class becomes his latest victim, Mira plows through a case of online dating turned deadly with Mrs. Berns at her side.

Will she earn her detective stripes...or end up deader than the Ghost of Christmas Past?

December Dread is an edge-of-your-seat, romantic comic caper mystery, perfect for readers who enjoy the humorous mysteries of Janet Evanovich, Chelsea Field, and Stephanie Bond. It's the eighth in an ongoing series featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots. The books can be read in any order; each novel stands alone.

I sat in bed not moving. Mom walked in "Olivia get up you are not sick ive checked your tempsrture five times." I finally gave up. My stomach was churning with embarassment. I got dressed and got on the bus there were hispers and pointing and i heard snatches of conversation "thats her...but she looks like a girl...did she seriously go in the boys...bunny girl" I just sat there when i got to school i ran into homeroom and sunk in my seat Sarah put her hand on my shoulder "Im so sorry." I smiled. Then my crush walked in and smiled at me. I wonderd if it was in a mocking way. He whispered "Im Jake." I just smiled. "Idiot!" I thought to myself.
