The Crabby Cadaver at the Christmas Carnival: The Misty Milton Mysteries - A Christmas Cozy Mystery Novella 

Christmas cookies, candy canes, cocoa… and a cadaver?

Misty Milton was dreaming of a romantic retreat, not a holiday homicide…

Her special friend Hank had planned a cozy break at a snow-clad inn, far from their small hometown in California.

But festive celebrations at the Christmas Carnival are cancelled when the loveable town Santa is accused of murdering one of his elves.

This relaxing road trip was meant to take their blossoming relationship to the next level… elf rivalry, replica reindeer and suspicious sleighs were never on the itinerary.

Helped by her cats, Floofus and Doofus, uncovering some very un-festive secrets about this quaint town in Vermont could change the way Misty and Hank feel about Christmas - forever.

Will Christmas cheer turn to Christmas fear for Misty, Hank and their feline companions?


The Crabby Cadaver at the Christmas Carnival is a standalone novella in the Misty Milton Cozy Mystery series, and takes place shortly before the events of The Curious Corpse in the Cavern.

If you like clever cats, curious clues and Christmas cozies, then you’ll love Audrey Clementine’s page turning festive tale.
