Considering her name, Marlee Jacob is an obvious choice for the role of Jacob Marley in Oriole Point’s production of A Christmas Carol. It’s just sad that the role has opened up because of the death of the elderly actor who’d originally been cast.
But Marlee, the proprietor of The Berry Basket, will do her best to keep spirits high—that is, until clues start mounting that there’s danger behind the scenes. There are accidents on set, the tree in the village square topples over, and worst of all, a body is found with a sprig of holly draped over it. If Marlee can’t wrap up the case, she may not have a berry merry Christmas . . .

BAKED DONUT HOLES
Because Hollyberry Homicide takes place during the festive week leading up to Christmas, Marlee and her talented baker Theo kept the pastry case at The Berry Basket filled with holiday treats. Here are the strawberry donut holes that Marlee gave away to the children who came to see Santa Claus at her shop. You can see why this was a much better choice than the usual candy canes. And Marlee sends her regards to alattefood.com where she discovered the recipe during her weekly searches for berry desserts.
