Christmas in Regina, Saskatchewan, takes a sinister turn that involves academic Joanne Kilbourn (married to successful lawyer Zach Shreve) in a mystery surrounding a baby and his missing mother.

Delia Wainberg, one Zack's law partners, gave up a child for adoption at the beginning of her career. When her adopted parents die, Delia's daughter Abigail, a new mother herself, decides to find her biological mother. At first she only asks for medical information that might someday be necessary for her and her baby, Jacob.

Later she gives Jacob to Delia's teenage daughter Isobel and disappears. The next day, Abigail's murdered body is found in her car. Delia's lover Nadine refuses to believe Abigail didn't want her to raise Jacob and prepares to bring a lawsuit against Delia for custody.

Reading a new book in this long running series is like visiting a friend. This is one of my favorite series and I recommend it to mystery lovers.
