It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Merry Winters is excited for her dream-come-true moment: Being an on-site crafter for a Christmas movie. The tidings of joy are short-lived as she finds herself becoming a referee, dealing with a raging Ebenezer, participating in a bucket brigade, and finding evidence in a “murder.”
Is someone trying to stop the production or is it tied to a secret someone has on Luna Carmichael, the star of the movie and the queen of Christmas?
When Marie, Luna’s assistant, stumbles away from a car accident and dies, Merry believes the accident wasn’t quite so accidental. Was Luna or Marie the target? Merry finds more questions than answers, but one thing is certain: Everyone has an ulterior motive for being part of the production—including Marie.
After another murder, Merry wonders if the deaths are tied to a baby born long ago and abandoned. And more importantly, will Merry live long enough to find out?


About Christina Freeburn

Christina Freeburn has always loved books. There was nothing better than picking up a story and being transported to another place. The love of reading evolved into the love of writing and she’s been writing since her teenage years. Her first novel was a 2003 Library of Virginia Literary Award nominee. Her mysteries series, Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery and Merry & Bright Handcrafted Mysteries, are a mix of crafty and crime and feature heroines whose crafting time is interrupted by crime solving.
Christina served in the US Army and has also worked as a paralegal, librarian, church secretary, and golf shop pro. She lives in West Virginia with her husband, dog, and a rarely seen cat except by those who are afraid and allergic to felines.


Adding Some Christmas in July
By Christina Freeburn

July is known for Independence Day, summer, hot days, and Christmas in July…okay not for most people but it is to me. Being that I, like my heroine Merry Winters, love Christmas, this is my favorite thing about July (besides two of children were born in July). I’m not much into fireworks, heat, pools (I’m not a very good swimmer) but I adore Christmas, and I love that I can get a little bit of that feel during the summer. I find little ways to add some Christmas in July and wanted to share some of them.

Christmas decorating. Not too much as I don’t want to annoy or seem like I no longer know what time of year it is…which actually hasn’t been that hard to do recently. An easy dΓ©cor to add is a Christmas tree wine bottle. Basically, it’s a dark green wine bottle which I’ve added a Christmas tree vinyl decal on and add some decorative lights inside the bottle. And of course, this is all done after drinking the wine.

Christmas Movies. I have a nice collection of holiday movies at my home so have no trouble finding something Christmassy. My favorites are Christmas with the Kranks and Naughty and Nice, a Hallmark channel original from 2012. The Hallmark channel also helps out by showing some Christmas movies.

Christmas/holiday themed books. There are a lot of wonderful stand alone and Christmas series out there in different genres. I like to mix it up between mystery and romance winter holiday offerings.

Holiday crafting. After the 4th of July, I start brainstorming idea for Christmas gifts I want to make my family. For the last three years, I’ve been handcrafting a gift for husband, children, their significant others, and the grands. The first year I spend a lot of late nights and rushed through a project, so I decided to make it part of my Christmas in July celebration.

Listening to holiday music. I especially love to do this when I’m creating Christmas dΓ©cor. I also like doing my dΓ©cor crafting before the holidays as I’m not rushed, and I have a longer time to display new creations.

And this year, I might send out some Christmas in July cards to those friends and family who’d enjoy a holiday card during the summer.
