Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Nantucket Police Chief Meredith Folger is acutely conscious of the strain COVID-19 has placed on the community she loves. Although the island has proved a refuge for many during the pandemic, the cost to Nantucket has been high. Merry hopes that Christmas Stroll, one of Nantucket's favorite traditions, in which Main Street is transformed into a winter wonderland for tourists and locals to enjoy, will lift the island's spirits. But the arrival of a large-scale TV production, and the Secretary of State with her family, complicates matters significantly. The TV shoot is plagued with problems from within, as a shady, power-hungry producer clashes with strong-willed actors. Across Nantucket, the Secretary's troubled stepson keeps shaking off his security detail to visit a dilapidated house near conservation land, where an intriguing recluse guards secrets of her own. With all parties overly conscious of spending too much time in the public eye and secrets swirling around both "camps," it is difficult to parsewhat behavior is suspicious or not-until the bodies turn up. Now, it's up to Merry and Detective Howie Seitz to find a connection between two seemingly unconnected murders and catch the killer. But when everyone has a motive, and half of the suspects arepoliticians and actors, how can Merry and Howie detect fact from fiction? This latest installment in critically acclaimed author Francine Mathews's Merry Folger series is an immersive escape to festive Nantucket, a poignant exploration of grief as a result of parental absence, and a delicious new mystery to keep you guessing"-- Provided by publisher.
