When Sue Jan and the gals at the Crown of Glory Beauty Salon and Boutique set out the egg nog and fruitcake at their annual Christmas soiree, they have no idea the town's senior citizen playboy, Bubba Bustalet, will be hit on the noggin with the fruitcake before the night is over.
Sue Jan goes solo solving the mystery. She is soon at her wit's end between Wachita's know-it-all new sheriff, Bubba's senior-rita fan club, and all the tempting holiday food threatening to ruin her diet. Will Sue Jan find the felonious fruitcake felon before the church choir sings the last fa-la-la?

You're such a nut, Meg.

Half of the Fat Ladies duo, Lovita, is on holiday in England, so when Sue Jan falls over a body in the dark, it's down to her to find who did it without the assistance of her friend. All too short and perhaps not quite as much fun as when they are both there to share the banter, this book is still a delightful confection of gossip, humour and speculation. Seems the biggest casualty is Sue Jan's diet! And the marvellous Michelle Babb caries the story perfectly, giving gorgeous Texan twang to the conversations.

Felony Fruitcake is short, funny and a perfect distraction at any time, not just for the Christmas season. Would that it were longer. But there is the additional bonus at the end of the story of a fruit cake recipe and, best of all, Ms.Babb singing 'The Fruitcake Song.' It just couldn't get any better.

Short and sweet cozy mystery.

Any additional comments?

One of the guests at the annual Crown of Glory Christmas party ends up unconscious out back near the dumpster. Sue Jan found the victim and decides to solve it.

This is told from Sue Jan's POV, since in previous books in this series they are told through Lovita's eyes. Lovita has gone to England to spend Christmas with the Hudson family.

The plot is condensed (since it is a short story) but it is good and funny.
Michelle Babb did a great job in differentiating the individuals and their attitudes.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audio book at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator.
