With Christmas just a few weeks away Benni's ueenly boss Constance Sinclair demands that she investigate the death of a local socialite It's not long before Benni recognizes t. Does reading a book count if you listened to the audio book That's what I did with thisAt first the story seemed to be about Benni Harper Ortiz dog sitting a puppy and her mother in law's upcoming Christmas visit to San Celina Calif and ensuing drama between her husband police chief Gabe Ortiz and his mother Kathryn than about finding whether Pinkie Edmondson a member of the prestigious 49 Club was murdered and by whomBut I realized the ancillary characters of Hud Dove and Alvia and their stories and events in the city such as the annual Christmas parade are probably familiar to fans and therefore have a place in the greater Benni Harper world and narrativeAnd the voice of Johanna Parker who recorded the audio book made me listen to the 7 hour story over three days while driving and making and eating dinnerSome elements of the story my two theories of whodoneit and why and the source of drama between Gabe and Kathryn were predictable however not so much so that I was frustrated with Benni for not finding the answers soonerThis was my first Benni Harper Mystery book although it is the 13th of 15 in the series authored by Earlene Fowler I'd read or listen to
