Santa Puppy - Lynn Cahoon

Another trip to South Cove, CA and the gang is in the full Christmas cheer...except for Jill, who is not quite a Grinch, but does have a case of the Bah Humbugs. This story focuses on relationships and the holiday season, with the mystery in the far background until the last chapter. Yet the mystery was interesting, but wasn't a whole lot to the mystery, so I agree making it a small part of a novella. I am ready for a full length mystery for Jill to sink her teeth into, though these novellas have been fun to read.
