It’s December in Copper Bluff, and from hillside to hallowed hall, everyone is merry—or will be as soon as semester break arrives. Students are studying, professors are grading, and Emmeline Prather is anticipating the university-sponsored holiday concert. Friend and colleague Lenny Jenkins will be accompanying the visiting quartet, Jazz Underground, and Em can’t think of a better way to kick-start the holiday season.

But before she can say “Jingle Bell Rock,” trouble arrives at Candlelight Inn, the bed and breakfast where the quartet is staying. One of the band members dies unexpectedly, and suspicion falls on Em, whose altercation with the man ends with him on the floor. He never recovers, and now she’s worried her reputation might not either. When Emmeline starts to see parallels between an Agatha Christie novel she’s teaching and the victim, Lenny claims she’s read one too many mysteries.

As the clues unravel, so does the murderer’s patience. Em is close to finding the truth, but will the truth—or the murderer—push her over the edge? It will take a Christmas miracle to solve this case, but if there’s one thing in surplus this time of year, it’s faith.

  1. Love the name “Emmeline Prather, ” and the world of your book sounds very enchanting. On my TBR list, Mary (though I must say, Jackie, I’ve have a longer and longer list as your blog tour progresses(smile))

    • Thanks again, Madeline for checking out A Very Merry Murder. It’s good to see what is out there and available, even if (so sad) we don’t actually get to reading it… or at least for along time. It’s also a good way to meet authors. Some might even be willing to…. guest blog? 🙂

  2. Thank you for the spotlight on “A Very Merry Murder” by Mary Angela and for being part of the book tour.

    This cover is lovely and is bound to get anyone in the Christmas frame of mind. Can’t wait for the opportunity to read this book.

    • I love the wintry cover art as well! But I’m glad Southern California winters are sunny and in the 70’s and we have to import our Christmas trees and put fake snow on our lawns for decoration.. Tee-hee.
