Set against the holiday cheer of twinkling lights, costumed carolers, and a festive line of extravagantly decorated boats participating in the annual Christmas boat parade in Newport Beach, California, cupcake caterer Emory Martinez finds that the grinch has crashed the party. Together with her sister Carrie, Emory is catering a delectable feast of holiday cupcakes and cookies aboard a luxury yacht for the new Mrs. Blair Villman and her guests.Sparks fly when Carrie comes face-to-face with the hostess, who just happens to be Carrie's high school frenemy, and old grievances are dredged up. Adding fuel to the fire, Blair's stepson brings his mother, the former Mrs. Villman, to the party. Instead of celebrating holiday cheer, someone seems intent on channeling the Burgermeister Meisterburger and shutting down Blair’s party permanently. When Emory finds a body aboard the yacht, she needs to discover who iced the victim before the Scrooge ruins not only her livelihood but her freedom as well.
Includes delicious holiday recipes.

It reminded me a bit of the movie The Holiday, but in all the right ways. I loved Antonia for her dedication to her friend, her ability to make things better for others even if only in her small way, and her frankness of self. It's not often a character is simply themselves, and while maybe embassassed at times, still mostly accepting of themselves, and comfortable enough to present that truth to the world. I appreciated how much Jules gave of herself as well. She may have been someone we got to know from afar, or at least at a distance from Antonia in the physical sense, but her heart was there one hundred percent. Oliver was one of many notable figures of the town, helpful and with a heart of gold, he was definitely harboring a tender for our gal Antonia, and while neither seemed eager to act on it first, it doesn't make it any less sweet when the moment finally comes. Then there's Oliver's granddad, the new mother and son in town, the brother's who couldn't be more different yet the same at heart...and so many others you'll feel blessed to make the acquaintance of.
