Book two in the Amanda Pepper mystery series.
Amanda Pepper, an English teacher at school for Philadelphia's filthy rich, is determined to teach the kids a lesson about the true spirit of Christmas. She intends to have them cook and serve a meal to the homeless, but unfortunately a powerful parent takes over, and the simple meal turns into a catered affair—topped off by murder. Of course, Amanda wants to solve the crime with her sometime boyfriend, cop C. K. Mackenzie. She's equally determined to teach the the elusive killer a lesson or two, as well.
From Gillian Roberts, the Anthony Award-winning author of Caught Dead in Philadelphia, I'd Rather Be in Philadelphia, With Friends Like These..., and How I Spent My Summer Vacation.
