Rate this:
It may be Christmas in Tupelo, but Callie Valentine Jones' not-quite-ex Jack is trussed up like a holiday turkey recovering from a shattered leg, cousin Lovie's looking for love in all the wrong stockings, and Elvis the basset hound is out for revenge on a sneaky Lhasa Apso. Everyone finally gets into the spirit when Uncle Charlie is pressed into service as Santa at a weekend charity event in the mall. But Yuletide cheer turns to Yuletide fear after a killer tries to zap Charlie back to the North Pole marked "Return to Sender."

Determined to find out who's decking the mall with Christmas corpses, Elvis and the Valentines fill up their sleigh with suspects as they attempt to unmask a devil in disguise in time to turn their "Blue Christmas" all Christmas-y and white.

It's a cozy smalltown mystery with a spunky heroine and a talking dog, I wasn't expecting great literature. The first chapter had Elvis puns and funny remarks that summed up each character's personality in a nutshell. All the remaining chapters were exactly the same. Put this on the shelf next to Dan Brown.

Hm. For the first time, I am less than utterly charmed. Callie and Elvis take turns narrating the chapters, and usually I prever the basset hound over the human. This time though, poor Elvis's tendency to work song titles into his sentences quickly crossed the line from adorable to annoying. I hope this isn't a new habit he's picked up.
