Two and a half weeks ago magazine crafts editor Anastasia Pollack arrived home to find Ira Pollack, her half-brother-in-law, had blinged out her home with enough Christmas lights to rival Rockefeller Center. Now he's crammed her small yard with enormous cavorting inflatable characters. She and photojournalist boyfriend (and possible spy) Zack Barnes pack up the unwanted lawn decorations to return to Ira. They arrive to find his yard the scene of an over-the-top Christmas extravaganza. His neighbors are not happy with the animatronics, laser light show, and blaring music creating traffic jams on their normally quiet street. One of them expresses his displeasure with his fists before running off.

In the excitement, the deflated lawn ornaments are never returned to Ira. The next morning Anastasia once again heads to his house before work to drop them off. When she arrives, she discovers Ira's attacker dead in Santa's sleigh. Ira becomes the prime suspect in the man's murder and begs Anastasia to help clear his name. But Anastasia has promised her sons she'll keep her nose out of police business. What's a reluctant amateur sleuth to do?

Anastasia has her hands full with work, family (some crazier than others), boyfriend, and pets. Throw a murder into the mix, and mayhem and madness ensues. I was captivated from beginning to end. I love how the story unfolds, and I was glued to the pages, and the edge of my seat. This book is a page turner with twists and turns that I did not see coming. I hope there are many more to come in this series. Lois Winston is an exceptional storyteller, and I highly recommend Handmade Ho-Ho Homicide!

Sleuth Anastasia Pollack’s half brother-in-law Ira filled her yard with decorations, and she quickly returns them. Ira’s lawn looks like a Christmas animatronics extravaganza and is a sore spot with neighbors. The next day, a man is dead in Ira’s mechanized Santa-sleigh. Ira wants Anastasia to investigate, only her sons already made her promise to leave police matters to the police. Balancing work, home, family, pets, and boyfriend leaves little time for Anastasia to sleuth but she does it intuitively, picking apart Ira’s life until all that’s left is one angry killer. A breezy, entertaining read!
