Eighteen-year-old kitchen witch Reeva Long doesn’t like breaking rules. Doing so can lead to big trouble. Not following the carefully laid out steps of a recipe, for example, could mean the difference between a perfect quiche and a plate of scrambled eggs.
So it goes against Reeva’s rule-following nature when crocheted ornaments in traditional Christmas shades of red, white, and green show up on the community Yule trees. Those trees are supposed to be decorated with things from nature like pinecones, holly sprigs, or cranberry garlands, not yarn and pipe cleaners.
Reeva is determined to figure out who the anonymous crafter is, but also realizes worse things could happen. It’s not like anyone died, after all. Then she overhears her sister, Flavia, casting a threat against another villager and fears a dead body is the next thing they’ll find tucked among the Yule trees.
