It’s that time of the year again—the Christmas rush is about to begin, and curio shop owner Camryn Brooks and her BFF, coffee shop owner Alice “Pinky” Nelson, need to hire additional help. Their former high-school classmate, Molly Dalton, is not exactly who they had in mind. Has the rich socialite worked a day in her life? But Molly practically begs for the job.
On her first day, Molly seems to be in her own little world, and Cami worries that her new employee may flake out. The problem turns out to be far worse than that when Cami discovers Molly dead in the back of the shop, after drinking a poisoned cup of coffee. Soon there is an avalanche of suspects as Cami starts shoveling through the clues—including a shattered snow globe of Marilyn Monroe. Now Cami will have to venture out of her safety zone before the pathological poisoner stirs up more trouble…

Review of The Iced Princess
Review (4 Stars): The Iced Princess is a fun, charming whodunnit with a spunky heroine and a dash humor that will definitely keep you entertained. Cami and Pinky decide that it is time to add some new employees for the holiday season and take a chance on an old schoolmate, Molly Dalton, to fill the position. When they find Molly dead in the back of their shop, Cami must find a killer before they add another victim to their list.
Cami is one of those characters that you will instantly adore and I loved spending time with her in The Iced Princess. Learning how to make snow globes over the course of this mystery is an absolute treat and this well-written mystery will keep you hooked until the very end. This is the second book in the series and I’m looking forward to more adventures with Cami and Pinky in the future.
I’m excited to give away a copy of The Iced Princess. This giveaway is for US Residents only. To be entered in the drawing by December 21st, please leave me a comment below:
