Missing in Christmas River by Meg Muldoon

book cover of Christmas cozy mystery Missing in Christmas River by Meg Muldoon

What happened to Search & Rescue volunteer Wes Dulany?

That’s the question on everyone’s mind this fall in the small town of Christmas River, Oregon. And it’s especially on the mind of pie baker extraordinaire Cinnamon Peters, who returns home after spending the summer working in Portland to find that one of the town’s most beloved citizens has gone missing while looking for legendary treasure in The Christmas River National Forest.

But when Cinnamon and her husband Sheriff Daniel Brightman come across a small piece of the legendary treasure in town, and become a target of violence shortly after, it’s clear that Wes Dulany’s disappearance isn’t nearly as cut and dry as it seems.

Because a dangerous game is afoot in Christmas River this autumn.

And the stakes are higher than anybody ever imagined.

The Christmas Camel by Vered Ehsani

All you need is love… and a camel.

Mollie Stanton has no intention of ever returning home – until her boyfriend dumps her twelve days before Christmas, and her incorrigible grandmother, Duchess Delilah, calls from jail, asking Mollie to bail her out, along with her two best friends.

There’s just one small catch. The judge insists that Mollie be guarantor and guardian. Translation: if she wants to get out of town before New Year, she has to find out who framed Duchess Delilah. Ideally, while also avoiding the handsome but annoying vet who’s staying in the Stanton Farm’s guest cottage.

All Dr. Darren Little wants is a fresh start, free from his family’s political ambitions – and scandals. When he learns about a too-good-to-be-true opportunity to buy out another vet’s rural practice, he signs the contract. Looking after farm animals in a small town sounds like the perfect prescription for a much needed dose of calm, order, and sanity.

Problem is, there’s nothing calm, orderly, or sane about Teaville and its residents, whatever their species. And no one is crazier than Duchess Delilah. As for her granddaughter Mollie… she’s charming but guilty — and crazy — by association.

Neither Mollie nor Dr. Little have any idea what crazy looks like until Christmas Eve when Delilah’s shenanigans, a pregnant camel, and an altercation with the law conspire to rewrite more than just the doctor’s prescription.

With Christmas approaching, can Aida and Trexon give an orphaned little girl her holiday wish, plus find the perfect ending for themselves?

Before her conniving father can steal her orphaned niece away, Aida’s determined to give the three-year-old child the Christmas she’s been wishing for.

En route to a diplomatic mission, Trexon crash lands on Earth in the middle of a snowstorm. He soon finds himself stumbling through the cold. A beautiful Earthling female rescues him, and she takes him to her isolated cabin, where he falls for her sweet ways. After he learns of their plight, he’s determined to make Aida and the child’s holiday wishes come true. But once the storm is over, Trexon must sign the treaty and take a one-way flight back to Cu’zod. If he goes, he’ll lose his fated mate, but if he stays, the Earth-Cu’zod alliance could be lost forever.
