With the spirit of the holidays wafting through the Beacon Bakeshop, Lindsey thinks she has the recipe for the sweetest Christmas ever—winning the town-wide cookie bake-off. Unfortunately, striving for a picture-perfect December in Beacon Harbor is a lot like biting into stale shortbread. Low on staff and bombarded by visits from family, Lindsey can barely meet demands at work, let alone summon the confidence to face fierce competition . . .
Self-appointed Christmas know-it-all Felicity Stewart is determined to take the top spot in the bake‑off, and she’s not afraid to dump a little coal in everyone’s stocking to do it. Just as the competition heats up, everything falls apart when the judge is found dead—and covered in crumbs from Lindsey’s signature cookie!
Solving a murder was never on Lindsey’s wish list. But with her reputation on the line during the happiest time of the year, she’ll need to bring her best talents to the table in order to sift out the true Christmas Cookie culprit.
Includes Delicious Recipes!
More interested in kneading dough than adding it up, Lindsey’s breakup inspired her to set up the shop she always wanted in a place that always made her happy. She’d spent many childhood summers near this beach community and converting the old run-down lighthouse into a bakery café and home offers a perfect fresh start for Lindsey and her devoted Newfoundland dog, Wellington.
But not everyone in town has a sweet tooth. The preservation society won’t have the lighthouse’s history sugar coated by lattes and cakes—and a protest group crashes Lindsey’s Memorial Day opening. Then her ex-fiancé Jeffrey Plank and his girlfriend Mia Long arrive to trash the place. In the ensuing chaos Mia chokes on a donut and dies.
An autopsy reveals cyanide in Mia’s bloodstream and Lindsey is the police’s prime suspect. To clear her name, she’s going to need to combine ingredients found in the town’s checkered past to uncover the identity of a desperate killer . . .
Includes Delicious Recipes!

In 1814, Sara Stevenson, the high-spirited daughter of celebrated Scottish lighthouse engineer, Robert Stevenson, disgraces her family by falling in love with the young sailor, Thomas Crichton. The two lovers embark on a clandestine affair and decide to elope, but on the day of their elopement Thomas fails to show up as planned, leaving Sara heartbroken and at the mercy of her overbearing family. Learning of their daughter’s fallen state, and seeing that Sara is unwilling to give up her obsession with the sailor, the Stevensons banish their daughter to the eerie outpost of Cape Wrath, the setting of their most desolate lighthouse. There Sara is forced to live with the dashing, reclusive light-keeper, William Campbell, a man rife with dark secrets. While Sara continues to search for Thomas, she becomes more entangled with the unsettling lightkeeper. And just when she’s about to give up hope of ever finding her young lover again, a mystifying package arrives containing Thomas’s treasured pocket watch. Clinging to hope, Sara continues to correspond with the sender, an antiquarian from Oxford. And what she learns from this extraordinary stranger will not only help her unravel the mystery of Thomas’s untimely disappearance, but also compel her to face her feelings for William Campbell, a man with demons of his own, and a growing love for the beautiful young woman placed in his care.
