A former child star who once played Tiny Tim, Scotty Parker has grown up to be Scrooge, and his miserly, bah-humbug attitude lasts year-round—a fact known all too well by his current wife, his ex-wife, his maid, and many more. Scotty thinks he can stage a comeback with the screenplay he's working on, and Jaine Austen's been reluctantly helping him edit it. So when Scotty is bludgeoned with a frozen chocolate yule log and the police start making a list of suspects and checking it twice, Jaine's name is unfortunately included. True, she's been under some stress, but she's not guilty of murder, and in her 16th outing (after Death of a Bachelorette), she will have to prove it.
