Christmas Murder Mix-Up
“I have to get rid of her now.”
After four months of a blissful marriage, Paige is devastated to overhear her husband, Cooper, say those words to his best friend. Because of a suspicious Christmas gift, a gas leak, and a home invasion, Paige’s love for Cooper is tested to the limit. Will their marriage survive the Christmas Murder Mix-up?
A HOLIDAY INTRUDER:
Kelsey Jordan prefers upcycling junk and refinishing antiques for her store in a Georgia mountains town to being the center of attention. When a robbery and an unknown benefactor shove her in the middle of a decades-old mystery, and a real estate developer and a former baseball star compete for her attention, Kelsey isn’t sure who to trust.

In My Opinion (Review)
If you enjoy mysteries and suspense set around the holidays, don’t miss this collection. Three novellas set around the holidays that are original and enjoyable.
Christmas Murder Mix-Up starts with a new wife overhearing her husband’s phone conversation and assuming he’s plotting to kill her. The sequence of events that follow make her theory believable. With a touch of humor and plenty of intensity, you’ll be rooting for Paige and Cooper to get through the day and enjoy a silent night.
With her brother on the run after a dead police officer was found, Brianna turns to her former foster brother—and long-time crush for assistance. This story showcases an intelligent, resourceful, and strong female character who kicks tail in her own right, but she just might need someone to rescue her in Holiday Pursuit.
Antique and Upcycle store owner Kelsey is facing a failing business but if she can get dibs on the estate of a local man, she might be able to turn things around. In A Holiday Intruder, a break-in, two suitors’ attention, and a benevolent secret Santa keep her plenty busy. Will she discover her heart’s wish before all of her dreams crash around her?
Each of these stories is different than the other and stand on their own well. This collection is hard to put a label on since it’s part cozy mystery, part romantic suspense, part suspense but it comes together for a fantastic and fun holiday read.

About the Authors
As an avid reader, Joanie Bruce welcomed the transition from reading to writing and considered it a wonderful new experience to please others with her words. She has three published Christian suspense novels, and enjoys writing from her home in the country. Thankful that God has given her the ability to write, draw and paint, Joanie strives to use them to encourage others and to honor Him in all her accomplishments.
Alexa Verde penned her first literary masterpiece, a rhymed poem, at the ripe age of eight, and since has had 200 short stories, articles, and poems published in the five languages that she speaks. She has a bachelor degree in Spanish, a master’s in Russian, and enjoys writing about characters with diverse cultures. She’s worn the hats of reporter, teacher, translator, model (even one day counts!), caretaker, and secretary, but thinks that the writer’s hat suits her the best. After traveling the world and living in both hemispheres, she calls a small town in south Texas home. The latter is an inspiration for the fictional setting of her series Rios Azules Christmas and Secrets of Rios Azules.
DENISE WEIMER holds a journalism degree with a minor in history from Asbury University. An associate editor for Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, Denise is the author of The Restoration Trilogy, The Georgia Gold Series, romantic novella REDEEMING GRACE, and ACROSS THREE AUTUMNS: A Novella of The Backcountry Brides Collection through Barbour Publishing (May 2018). This wife and swim mom of two daughters always pauses for coffee, chocolate, old houses, and to write any story God lays on her heart.
