Residents of Rudolph keep the spirit of Christmas alive year-round—but their joy is threatened when a group of grinches visits the town, in the charming fourth installment of the Year-Round Christmas series.
It's the week before Thanksgiving, and Merry Wilkinson, owner of Mrs. Claus's Treasures, is preparing for a weekend reunion of her mother's college friends. But when the group of women comes into Merry's shop, Merry is met with frosty attitudes and cold hearts.
The women argue amongst themselves constantly, and the bickering only intensifies after one of the friends is poisoned. With her father's role as Santa in danger due to his proximity to the crime, Merry will need to use all of her investigative gifts to wrap this mystery up and save Santa and her favorite holiday.

Interview with Vicki Delany:

1. What is your favorite part of this book and why?

I love the scene of the pot luck party. It was fun for me to think of what each woman would bring and how it would fit her personality. The women aren’t getting along on their visit, but when they first sit around the table, that’s forgotten as they all dig in and enjoy. Of course it’s not forgotten for long, and I loved the challenge of murdering someone with food in such a limited circle of suspects. 

2. If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

I’d enjoy visiting Vicky Casey at her bakery, Victoria’s Bake Shoppe.  Food, baked goods in particular, are such an important part of Christmas, and I think Vicky captures the essence of Christmas in her bakery. I’d love watching her work, maybe get a few tips, and of course I’d have to sample everything.

3. If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?

Goodness. That’s quite a question. I think Jane Austen and Sense and Sensibility, her first book.  It wasn’t just that Jane was writing a marvelous book, but she was creating an entirely new art form. She almost invented the novel, as we know it today.  

4. Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?

Entirely my imagination. 

5. What made you want to become a writer?

Hard to say. I had an idea at first that I wanted to write for children, and I tried that but it wasn’t working for me. I was taking a creative writing class, and I enjoyed the class and wanted to continue, so I thought I’d try a mystery. And here we are today.  I now have thirty-five published books.
