“Hillari DeSchane’s A Christmas Tail is a delight. What could be cozier than a cup of tea in front of the fire, and a Christmas story chock-full of mystery? How about one involving missing cats? Siamese to be precise. Hillari even includes a holiday recipe for our enjoyment. I heartily endorse this treat of a read to one and all!”
