Sturgeon Bay author Valerie Clarizio will be signing books of her newly released contemporary romantic suspense novella, Cookies for Santa (Melange Books), at Book World on Dec. 22, 11 am – 1 pm.
Cookies for Santa, set in Wisconsin, begins when Detective Spinelli’s life is tossed sideways when he is reassigned from the Homicide Division to assist in the Child Services Division of the Social Services Department for the holiday season with Caseworker Shannon O’Hara. They both have their own philosophies for dealing with the clientele.
Shannon moonlights as Santa Claus’ little helper at the mall, and when Santa and an elf turn up dead Shannon appears to be next on the killer’s list. Spinelli is placed back on Homicide and goes undercover as Santa to help capture the killer.
Books will be available for purchase at the signing.
Book World is located at 30 North Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay.
