In this collection, three murder mysteries occur in coastal Maine during the holidays. A festive period film set becomes a murder scene; a man is found dead with traces of a signature Yule log cake on his body; and a woman must stop the disappearances and deaths of her eccentric neighbor's friends.

Lucy Stone is thrilled to be cast as an extra in a festive period film--until the set becomes a murder scene decorated in blood and buttercream icing. Lucy dashes to restore peace to Tinker's Cove, unwrap a cold-hearted criminal's MO, and reveal how one ornate Yule log cake could possibly cause so much drama. Hayley Powell's holidays aren't off to a very merry start. Not only has her daughter brought Conner--an infuriatingly perfect new beau--home to Bar Harbor, but a local troublemaker has been found dead with traces of her signature Yule log cake on his body. Realizing she can't make a decent Bûche de Noël to save her life, Julia Snowden enlists the help of her eccentric neighbor, Mrs. St. Onge, in hopes of mastering the dessert for Christmas. With everyone in the old woman's circle missing or deceased, however, it's up to Julia to stop the deadly tidings before she's the next Busman's Harbor resident to meet a not-so-jolly fate.

"In coastal Maine, murder mars the holiday season. Leslie Meier's 'Yule Log Murder' features Lucy Stone investigating a film-set murder, and revealing the drama surrounding an ornate Yule log cake. In 'Death by Yule Log' by Lee Hollis, a deceased man has traces of Hayley Powell's Yule log cake on his body, and her daughter's beau becomes the prime murder suspect. And in Barbara Ross's 'Logged on,' Julie Snowden seeks her neighbor's help in making a Bûche de Noël, but instead finds a string of suspicious disappearances and deaths." -- Back cover.
