Overview
Antique print dealer Maggie Summer has come to Maine for a storybook Christmas with her beloved Will Brewer and his Great-Aunt Nettie, who has gathered together her longtime friends for holiday celebrations. Maggie and Will love each other, although Maggie is determined to adopt children and Will has misgivings. But this problem is put on hold when Maggie hears cryptic references by Aunt Nettie s old friends to buried secrets from their youth. One elderly woman suffers from dementia, remembering those past events better than the gifts she just opened. Will she blurt out information about an old crime so dangerous that someone would commit murder to prevent its being revealed? Blackmail and murder are only the beginning. It may be a Merry Christmas but who will still be around to see in a Happy New Year?"

Wait’s seventh outing for New Jersey antique dealer Maggie Summer (after 2013’s Shadows on a Cape Cod Wedding), in which Maggie visits her boyfriend, Will, in Maine over Christmas, is as frothy as eggnog. Maggie is an incessant worrier. She worries her plans to adopt a child will hurt her relationship with Will. She worries while watching him care for his ailing Aunt Nettie and attempt to purchase a waterfront Victorian. For variety, she worries that Will is attracted to his realtor, Jo Heartwood. The book’s mystery is late to emerge: the murder of Carrie Folk, a nurse employed by one of Aunt Nettie’s elderly friends. Together with State Trooper Nick Strait, Maggie and Nettie try to determine if Carrie’s side occupation—blackmail—led to her death. The book’s highlights are its loving descriptions of the Maine winter and the area’s strong sense of community. (Sept.)
