The Christmas Tree Farm Murders
by Sara Penhallow
Isobel Santini (managing editor, terrible cook, and best friend) is present at the discovery of a murder. Her best friend is the prime suspect, and a second murder follows the first, so Isobel heads out of her office and into the snow to hunt for clues, much to the disapproval of the chief of police. At last, in the linoleum halls of academe, Isobel and the killer confront each other face-to-face.
