This is the first, and only book, I've read in the 'Laura Fleming Mystery' series. I put this book down once and walked away disgusted with it, but since I can't let a book go unfinished, I forced myself to pick it up again and read it to the end. Not only was the book very slow going throughout, but I didn't find the Burnette clan amusing at all. Ms. Kelner goes overboard on pointing out the difference in personalities and culture with us 'Hahvad pahkah's'. I dare you to count how many 'y'all's' there are.

Laura and Richard Fleming should be getting ready for the Christmas holiday in their Boston home especially with Laura five months pregnant. However, her cousin Vasti from Byerly, North Carolina pleads with the Flemings to come visit her and neither one can say no.

Vasti wants Richard, a Shakespearean professor at Boston College to direct the production of A Christmas Carol. Richard is eager to take up the challenge. During a rehearsal, Seth, the actor portraying Scrooge is found bludgeoned to death. Laura teams up with Junior, the town¿s chief of police, who is on enforced vacation, to find the killer before he can do any more harm.
