Summary

A dead car, a vacation to the Pacific Northwest that’s really all about running away, and a bad guy facedown on the steps to her rented cottage make Claire crave home more than chocolate cake and great home cooking. 

With only her beloved doggy as a companion, even the promise of hopping a ferry for the beautiful San Juan Islands seems like an impossibility when everyone is trying to point fingers at each other. Right in the middle of it all, Claire has to convince the tight-knit town she’s not the murderer, even if the clues tell another horrible story.

Originally published as part of a three-book collection of classic cozy mysteries, Three Carols of Cozy Christmas Murder. If you've already got that book (which has been newly edited and updated, too), this story would be a duplicate.

Well Titled

I enjoyed this story but was slightly disappointed - I was expecting a murder-mystery story; this is very much the story of a woman finding a new life. Yes, there is a murder but it only really plays a small part and there is no way of guessing who the guilty party is. Even the way the murderer’s identity is discovered is overly-simplistic and completely accidental.
