Merry Little Mysteries

Murder Takes the Train by Katherine Brown
The quaint, mountain town of Riverbend Junction has only one train in and one train out for transportation. The town hasn't been home for two of the three Belle sisters since they moved away several years ago, but when they return home for Christmas a murder derails the train and all of their plans for getting back to their regular lives. Can the women put their heads together to track down the killer or will they find themselves steam-rolled into a murder charge?

A Christmas Wish Before Dying by C.H. Sessums

The last thing she needs is to find out her best customer was involved in a hit-and-run accident. But it’s just the tip of the iceberg when the old man begs her to help him with one last wish before his time runs out.

The Contentious Business of Samuel Seabury

Samuel Seabury has travelled a long way from war-torn Connecticut, seeking consecration as the first Episcopal Bishop in America. Turned away in England, he ventures further into Scotland, and up to Aberdeen, his last chance. But even there the path is not straight: how far will some people go to prevent his consecration?
