ABOUT THE BOOK -
Kristin Clark and her offbeat crew of Bryn Mawr socialites are ready for a fun and festive winter holiday—one that involves sipping martinis by a crackling yule log, hot guys beneath the mistletoe, and Gucci under the Christmas tree. But this year, Old Saint Nick has something more dangerous in store.
A stranger dressed in a Santa suit has Kristin’s friends on his naughty list. First, Sophie’s favorite handbag is blasted by a bullet. Then, Father Christmas shatters her brother Chip’s car window with a golf club and leaves a threatening note demanding fifty grand. Both are convinced it has to be a mistake. But when Chip goes missing, the stakes become deadly.
Eula Morris is also back in town for the holidays, more bossy and boastful than ever after winning a mega-jackpot in the lottery. She’s returned from a luxury cruise around the world with a handsome new boyfriend (who looks oddly familiar…) and a Samsonite suitcase filled with gold bars. When the suitcase is snatched, Eula implores Kristin and the team to track it down.
Where is Chip? Why is a vengeful Santa targeting the gang? Who stole Eula’s suitcase? And how are these events linked? The WASPs and Kristen’s basset hound Waffles are on the case—before this white Christmas turns even darker…

MY THOUGHTS -
Sometimes you are prepared to read a more serious book and sometimes you just want a book for fun! This was one of those books :-) This one was super fun, cute, quirky, and in my opinion even Chick-Lit-ish (which I happen to love).
This story talks a lot about using social media. I love that in books. It makes it so much more "today", fresh. Personally I don't do FB or Instagram but if you don't know someone who totally lives by social media - I don't know what world you are from. And, it just makes good fun reading.
Good character development, but there were a lot of characters to keep track of, all of them entertaining to read about with their interactions and antics!
This was a very light, fun, zany chick-lit/mystery (light on the mystery) and a very enjoyable read!
I also want to mention that this takes place in Bryn Mawr PA, just NW of Philly - I live in central PA! I like when I can have a personal connection like that.
And then there's also -
"Even Gerda had been in a good mood, keeping her dire warnings about how an American harvest holiday had somehow become a gravy and stuffing-fest that did permanent damage to arteries and would rather be celebrated with a Tofurkey and a healthfully prepared puree of pumpkin that included no butter, salt, sugar, or flour!" - Ha! I love it! I am a vegetarian so... Amen to that sister!
