Publisher's Summary

Bonnie Balfour adores the changing seasons, fabulous fall activities, and holiday hoopla, but will a corpse on the porch squash her holiday plans?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner in historic Bliss, Georgia, and Bonnie is trimming display tables at Bless Her Heart, especially for the occasion. A "Gift of Gratitude" display, beside the front door of her second-chance dress shop, encourages shoppers to leave messages of good tidings for neighbors and friends. Unfortunately, someone has left a cornucopia of complaints instead. And they’re all about Bonnie!

When the scrooge turns out to be a neighbor, fed up with Clyde’s habitual petty theft and trespassing, Bonnie’s claws come out in defense of her kitty. The heated exchange leaves a bad taste in Bonnie’s mouth, but the man turns up dead before she can dish out a proper apology.

Determined to see justice served, Bonnie and Clyde dig into the case with gusto, only to land in hot water with the handsome Sheriff Wright. A series of anonymous attacks soon have the town wondering if Bonnie can find the killer before it’s time to cut the turkey or if she’ll be the next one on his carving board.

Great Cozy Read!

Another great book by Julie! I love this series more and more with each book!

I love the shenanigans that Bonnie and Clyde get up to! The story is fun but also focused on the mystery with a little romance thrown in! I love how relatable all the characters are!

I can't wait for the next book in the series!

Very engaging

Nice progression in the story of Bonnie. Clyde and the whole family of Bliss, GA. I was interested in the mystery, happy to see the relationship with Mason follow a natural course vs the typical push/pull that can go on forever in some series. Love the humor — just the right touch — not overdone, but well-placed . Brava.

Fantastic addition to series

I am absolutely loving this series. The author does an amazing job of building the suspense and romance in her books! Bonnie just can't help but get herself tangled up in messes while snooping and Mason is the perfect person to leap to her rescue each time. I love the way their personalities compliment each other.

LOVED IT

There are several things Bonnie needs to work out, including who murdered the curmudgeon. These characters are so relatable, and it doesn't hurt that my grandchildren also call me GiGi. I am excited to see where the next book takes these characters, especially Bonnie, her (dare we call him) boyfriend, and GiGi.
