Ember Quinn from the Silver Hollow series has gone to Christmas Village to assist her great-aunt Phoebe with her chocolate shop for the Christmas season. Aunt Phoebe opens the back door to take out the trash and discovers the body of elf Alfie Svenson holding chocolates.
He was killed with a sleigh bell.
When Detective Winters and Detective Noel come to investigate they have lots of questions for Aunt Phoebe.
Alfie was the Union Rep at the toy factory. He was trying to avoid a strike at the toy factory. Greg and Tommy Rinch own the toy factory.
However, Greg is buying Tommy out. Stan, an elf, is the union treasurer and toy factory accountant. It appears Alfie felt something was amiss at the factory and someone was helping him investigate.
Ember wants to solve the murder so she can show her cousins Gray and Issy Quinn in Silver Hollow that she can solve a murder on her own. Ember and Aunt Phoebe question Stan.
Ember put a magic spell on the candy they delivered to Stan so he would take a little nap while they looked around his office. They also question Tinsel Bright, the receptionist at the toy factory and Yule Navidad who runs the reindeer transport company.
There are several suspects to question.
This is a quick-paced book that you won’t want to put down until you discover who killed Alfie.
