Santa Claus delivering murder in the guise of a christmas present. He follows the 12 days of Christmas, a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves and so on. Eve follows in a frantic pace to catch the murderer before he can finish all twelve days. His victim demographics? Clients of an future dating service which is filled with intrigue on its own. All this and shopping for the holidays and getting ready for a first Christmas with Roarke. Almost enough to tip her over the edge. It is a fast paced read for anyone who enjoys the mystery genre. I totally enjoyed it. Well it is on to book 8, only 23 plus to follow the series thru. Enjoy!
