Ashling Cleary, owner and manager of a storybook park in California, is finally recovering from the events of last summer. Katrina Irvine's killer has been locked up, and Ashling's best friend, Donna, is no longer a murder suspect. Ashling and her boyfriend are getting along swimmingly, and the relentless hot days of summer are giving way to cool temperatures and rain. Yes, things are going great, and Ashling is looking forward to the holidays. That is, until the Santa Claus statue--the centerpiece of StoryWorld's Holiday Festival and a valuable and beloved remnant from one of StoryWorld's original sets--goes missing. Now Ashling has to figure out whodunit and why. The answers will surprise her.
This is a short story that takes place after the events of The Princess and the Poison.
