New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jana DeLeon brings readers a light-hearted, sharp-witted tale of mystery, romance, and gun-slinging society matrons with a heavy dose of Southern charm.
When college student Lexie Clairmont is summoned to the sleepy gated community in the Louisiana Bayou where her melodramatic Aunt Sophia lives, she figures she's in for more of the usual hysterics. But when she discovers that eight housemaids have disappeared without a trace, Lexie will have to play amateur detective to help her aunt get to the bottom of the pre-Christmas crisis. In a town where nothing is as it seems, Lexie's investigation could land her smack-dab in the middle of very real danger. Will she uncover the truth before it's too late?
