Death Under the Mistletoe: A Valentine Christmas Mystery… FREE

You know that saying, “when it rains, it pours?” That seems to be my life lately. Just when I think I’ve got myself organized to get everything done, something new is added. Between that, and a struggle to pace my work, I’ve running around like a mad woman.

I just turned in a draft of Southern Persuasion, book two of the Southern Heat series for review by my agent.  It’s a bad draft. I’m hoping my agent will be gentle. I’m expecting the copy edits on the first book, Southern Comfort, sometime this week. The three-book romance series will be released in 2016 by Penner Publishing.

Tess is excited to spend her first Christmas with her sexy husband, Jack Valentine, that is until the mall Santa staggers in her shop and drops dead underneath the mistletoe on Christmas Eve. There’s no shortage of suspects who wanted Santa dead. Was it his jealous elves? His estranged wife?  The in-laws who never thought Santa was good enough for their daughter?

  1. Jenna, I love all your sites, visuals, blogs! Easy on the eyes, well organized and informative. Can’t wait to carve out time to read your work! Multi-tasking truly works for you!

    On a side note: Elizabeth Peters wrote several books like cozy mysteries–involving a witty married couple who happen to be archeologists in Egypt. All very entertaining and historically, one of the most successful series of the past.

      Hi Carol, Thank you for checking out my site and your kind comments! I have one of your books on my TBR list but like you said, life is a little like plate spinning with so much to do. I do have Elizabeth Peters on my list because I’ve heard good things about her. And of course, a couple who gets in trouble is right in my wheelhouse! Thanks again.
