Freelance photographer and Yeast of Eden bakery assistant Ivy Culpepper has just scored the job of a lifetime shooting the Dickensian dress-up X-mas party thrown by It Girl film actress Eliza Fox . . . until an unwanted guest appears.

 

A holiday costume party in the sleepy coastal town of Santa Sofia could be just the boost Ivy needs for her fledgling photography business. At the party, Ivy enters a Victorian fantasy come to life, all courtesy of the fabulous Ms. Fox. Ivy gets to play shutterbug while hanging with Scrooge, Marley, the Cratchits, and more classic Dickens characters. But what begins as the best of times turns out to be the very worst for one of the party guests—a tabloid journalist with more enemies than Ebenezer himself.

 

When the man’s body is found sprawled across the jagged rocks below the house, the fingers begin pointing at Eliza. Meanwhile, Ivy gets roped into helping prove the starlet’s innocence. Her festive photos are now official evidence—and the Ghosts of Christmas Present could mean the party for Eliza is over, once and for all.ance photographer and Yeast of Eden bakery assistant Ivy Culpepper has just scored the job of a lifetime shooting the Dickensian dress-up X-mas party thrown by It Girl film actress Eliza Fox . . . until an unwanted guest appears.

Let me advise you to not start this book on an empty stomach. It is Christmastime and holiday parties are being catered left and right. The food is amazing!
When celebrities decide to throw parties in town, the stakes are even higher.
Unfortunately, for some, the cost is the ultimate -
murder is committed right under everyone's noses.

Ivy Culpepper helps with the baking but at catered parties she is hired to use her camera skills.
However, when celebrities are involved, the content of those photos must be regulated.
Until murder is committed. Then all the photos need to be reviewed. Fortunately Ivy is best friends with the top cop BUT often Ivy must deal with the investigating detective who is NOT her friend or her fan. Tensions run high and deceptions run deep.
Motives run rampant and evidence can point in more than one direction.

I wasn't sure who to believe did the crime (or crimes) and how the motive would be determined.
Could there be more than one killer? A copycat or crime of opportunity?
Never a dull moment and always a new twist.

The pace is quick, the mystery complicated and the characters well developed.
Excellent book in a wonderful series.
