SLAY BELLS by Hildie McQueen
Big-city girl Gabriela Diaz is prepared for the worst when she accepts a writing assignment in rural Montana, but she's pleasantly surprised by the jubilant atmosphere and warm welcome of the townspeople. Unfortunately, as she begins working on an article about their small-town Christmas festival, she discovers a dead body, putting her face-to-face with a local—and hunky—detective.
Weary from his all-work and no-play schedule, Detective Jeremy Hawkins braces for a busy season helping at his family's Christmas festival. When a beautiful writer arrives in town, his holidays immediately take a turn for the better. But a murder investigation, possible charges against him, and a pesky ex-girlfriend don't exactly spell romance.
Can Gabriela and Jeremy find love amidst the mayhem and sleigh bells?
