"The 25 Greatest Things About Christmas"

"Candy canes lined the drive, white lights strung between them. Grouped at the base of the front steps, were three giant baubles—about two feet across—that glittered with light. One was red with white snowflakes, one was green with a gold filigree pattern, and one was blue with silver starbursts. They were beautiful and had Sara wanting her own set." - Excerpt, Christmas is Murder
Sara McKinley grew up in a household who loved the holidays--all of them. But Christmas was at the top! The above-noted excerpt is how her mother's house is decorated when Sara and Sean go to visit.
