A NAUGHTY TOY MAKER BETTER WATCH OUT
Jessie Morton is getting just what she wished for this holiday season at the Renaissance Faire Village working as an apprentice to the new toy maker. But when Chris Christmas is discovered dead just hours after her arrival, Jessie's holiday plans start to melt away.
Jessie can t imagine who would want to silence the toy maker, but apparently the red-cheeked Chris Christmas liked toying with the ladies. Although it may be her shortest apprenticeship ever, she wants to unwrap the truth before word gets out in the village that it's not safe to be Santa or one of his helpers
