Jill Gardner has volunteered her Coffee, Books, and More to host a Christmas adopt-a-pet party. Among the potential forever friends is a male terrier named Baby, whose owner died of a heart attack. With few clues to go on, even finding the name of Baby’s human is a daunting task. But there’s no challenge too big for Jill this holiday season.
Playing Santa’s Little Helper, Jill is determined to find out what happened —and to fulfill a long-time coming Christmas wish…
The Big Thrill caught up to New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynn Cahoon to discuss her latest mystery, SANTA PUPPY:
What do you hope readers will take away from this book?
Coffee, Books, and More is doing a joint venture with a pet shelter this Christmas. I believe in volunteering as well as supporting great community causes. Even in challenging times. I hope this gives my readers ideas about how to support their own community not only around Christmas.
How does this book make a contribution to the genre?
Community, hope, and strong relationships. Cozy readers need that type of connection with a softer, gentler world.
