Murder in Christmas River - Meg Muldoon

Murder in Christmas River: A Christmas Cozy Mystery (Christmas River Cozy, Book 1)
Thought this would make a good Christmas read. Starts out with the baker, Cinnamon Peters, divorced now and she makes pies.
Thinks Christmas River is the best place in Oregon.  Kara has dated a lot and knows many of the townsfolk.
Gingerbread house competition is about to start. Bakers from the town have been practicing...she lives with her grandfather, who raised her.
Love tips about pie making as she makes them.  Her dog Huckleberry keeps her company most nights she is baking.
One comes up dead in the woods outside of the shop...her gingerbread mansion is destroyed, her ex is to marry her baking assistant..
Interesting how the dog helps them solve the case. All the clues and so close yet they are so far away to finding the murder....
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
