A Cozy Christmas Mystery, “Annie’s 7 Swans a Swimming”

Annie McCauley knows there’s no place like home for Christmas. But with just a few days to go, she’s far away from West Texas. The daughter of Ray and Anne McCauley, formerly Rayanne and now known as Annie McCauley, is living in New York City where her modeling career has stalled. She’s not worried, because she has a plan. She’ll finish her latest gig for the Grolsch Agency as the Snow Queen and store detective, and then hop on a plane, along with her BFF Luis. With a little luck she’ll be in little old Mesa View in time for the holiday. What could possibly go wrong? Plenty.

If you’ve followed Annie through her ups and downs, you know that she means well, but things have a way of going sideways. Just when it looks like she’ll pull it off, a call comes from a friend who is arrested for murder. Annie makes a little side trip to help to solve a mystery. She meets seven young women who call themselves, The Black Swans. She also meets a preacher who has lost his way, a French police inspector, lots of goats, and the colorful people on a little island in the middle of nowhere.

Her huge, ex-special forces boyfriend, Luther Grolsch is at her side as she tries to solve a mystery and make her mama and daddy happy by waking up on Christmas morning in the Mesa View Trailer park. Will a Christmas wish come true? Are those wedding bells? In the seventh book in the Annie McCauley Romantic Comedy Mystery Series, a cast of new quirky characters joins the usual gang for fun, romance, mystery, and adventure.
