Can Annie the Norwegian Forest Cat save the town's Christmas Play?
It's almost Christmas in Gold Leaf Valley, but Father Mike is in despair. The person playing Mrs. Claus in his play has pulled out at the last minute.
With only three days until opening night, he doesn't know what to do – until cupcake baker Lauren and her cousin Zoe, suggest Annie play Mrs. Claus!
The cast love the idea, and opening night is a huge success - until a backstage crew member is murdered.
Mitch, Lauren's boyfriend and police detective, sets out to find the killer. But Zoe grows impatient, especially when Jay's brother accuses them of murder!
Zoe persuades Lauren to join her in some sleuthing. With Mitch busy with the case and hanging out with his friend Chris, who is temporary roommates with him, Lauren has some free time for once. And of course Annie accompanies them on their adventure.
Lauren's new cupcake is a festive gingerbread creation, and Zoe is busy making her new holiday mugs.
But when they encounter the killer in the twilight, can they escape in the nick of time? Or will this be their last Christmas?
This is a humorous, clean, cat cozy mystery with female amateur sleuths, cupcake talk – and Annie, the Norwegian Forest Cat!
