"With Farberville's college on holiday break, Claire Malloy's bookstore is quiet...deadly quiet. Breaking the silence is a little old lady looking for volumes on pagan rituals, applied magick, and Celtic mysticism. Claire is intrigued and--miffed that her lover, Farberville police Lieutenant Peter Rosen, says she's in a rut--happily accepts an invitation to welcome the winter solstice at dawn. Showing up at the Sacred Grove, Claire expects wild chanting or even nude dancing. Instead she ends up sitting on a stump watching the Arch Druid clean her bifocals. Then winter arrives and so does a dead man. Someone has shot the wealthy benefactor of Farberville's neo-pagans. Now Claire is mixing some snooping with her Christmas shopping. But instead of wrapping up the case, she finds out 'tis the season for ho- ho- homicide...and she may be the next victim."--Publisher website.
