From Publishers Weekly
In this entertaining sixth Maggie Kelly mystery (after 2006's High Heels and Holidays), the scatterbrained mystery novelist faces a more dysfunctional family Christmas than usual. Just before leaving New York, Maggie breaks her foot, and then hobbles home to suburban New Jersey only to see her father arrested for murder. Local lothario Walter Bodkin has been found dead, and the weapon of choice was a bowling ball engraved with Maggie's father's initials. Maggie is sure that her father is innocent, but to get to the bottom of this murder, she'll have to learn more than she wants to know about her mother and sister's extracurricular activities, which definitely go beyond bowling. Her siblings aren't giving her much assistance, but droll, charming Alex, the hero of Maggie's books come magically to life, is there to keep her anxieties in check. Fans of romantic cozies will find this light read a welcome escape from their own holiday stress. (Nov.)

Maggie wins big at the Casino, is stalked by a demented 42 year old. Maggie's father is accused of murder - sweet mild mannered Evan? - and Maggie and Saint Just set out to clear his name.
Sterling and Alex discover that they are becoming more human. Every day.
Maggie stands up to her Mom (at last). And there is, folks, a happy ending.
Admittedly, I enjoy Kasey Michael's sense of humor - the author "asides" are hilarious!!!
This was an extremely fun read and the end of a series - Darn it!!!!!!!!!
I always enjoy her characters. They are well defined. And no one is perfect.
Very much like people you could meet in everyday life.
In High Heels and Holidays, they met Lt. Wendell's new girlfriend -- Christine.
When the same girlfriend is referenced here (clearly the same, given her occupation and some other circumstantial evidence), her name is Caroline.
That disposes of the nit.
What threw me out of the "reader's trance" much more sharply was the W.B.B. club. It struck me as so unlikely as to be over the top, particularly when combined with Bodkin's relationship with Maggie's mother and both her sisters. Overkill, alas.
