Description

'Twas the week before Christmas, and Julia Snowden's escape from New York has just hit a snag. Fresh off accidentally poisoning half her colleagues with her "Killer Eggnog," Julia's would-be subletter, Imogen Geinkes, is now jobless and homeless-leading Julia to invite the young woman home for the holidays in Maine. But when they unload the rental truck in Busman's Harbor, they find something that wasn't on anyone's packing list: the body of Imogen's former boyfriend. Suddenly, the wordplay in Imogen's name-"I'm a jinx"-isn't so adorable. But for all the calamities that follow in Imogen's wake, Julia's certain she's no killer. As Julia digs into the case, the appearance of the ex's brother-his identical twin-doubles the confusion. Has Imogene been double-crossed by an evil twin? Was the eggnog "accident" no accident at all? If Julia doesn't unwrap the murderer's true identity soon, one of the twelve days of Christmas could be her last... Praise for Steamed Open "Sure to appeal to readers who treasure the Maine coast, Ross's latest continues the lives and minor dramas of her fictionalized version of Boothbay Harbor with amiable characters." -Kirkus Reviews
