Grace’s festive eighth miniature mystery (after 2014’s Madness in Miniature) takes retired Lincoln Point, Calif., high school teacher Gerry Porter and her 11-year-old granddaughter, Maddie, to Manhattan for a Christmas crafts show—the biggest crafts fair on the East Coast. They are accompanied by Gerry’s friend Bebe Mellon, the manager of Lincoln Point’s SuperKrafts, a store that has a booth at the fair. Native New Yorker Gerry sees the trip as the perfect opportunity to show Maddie the city where she grew up, but some sleuthing soon distracts them. At the fair, Maddie sees a woman put something from one of the tables into a bag and then leave the room. This theft is the harbinger of a more serious crime to come—murder. Grace, the pen name of Camille Minichino, rounds out this delightful seasonal cozy with some miniature tips on making doll-house furniture and accessories from everyday objects. (Apr.)
