Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells…Rifle Shells?
Blind private investigator Steve Smiley and his partner hear a rifle shot. Hordes of Christmas shoppers scatter. A famous big-game hunter drops to the sidewalk. They grab the beautiful teen who was arguing with the man and flee to safety. The girl, the victim's adopted daughter, has one passionate request: find her birth parents.
Smiley and McBlythe's search intertwines with the murder investigation again and again—and uncovers a shocking secret. Like it or not, they must first identify the killer in order to discover the truth about the teen's adoption.
A host of suspects line up like Santa's reindeer. Can the determined investigators tie a ribbon on the case? Will this be the best Christmas ever—or will death and heartache be the only presents under the tree?
Smiley and McBlythe are on the case. He's a blind former police detective with a special gift for solving homicides and she's a straight-to-the-point Boston debutante turned detective.
The suspense and action in the Smiley and McBlythe Mysteries will keep you turning the pages to find out whodunit! No foul language, sex scenes or graphic violence—just a great mystery waiting to be solved.
Beginning to end, I couldn’t put it down! And was a great story, and great whodunnit! Loved it, especially with a Christmas theme
I loved the characters and the way they intereacted. The story line was unique. I look forward to reading more of the books in this series.
I was wondering what happened to the girl after her so called adopted father died.
