The Top 5 Worst Christmas Presents
By Susi Holliday

5. Household electrical appliances
Seriously, it’s never ok to buy someone an iron for Christmas, even if they really want one. Don’t be too surprised when they channel Little Mo in Eastenders and smack you in the face with it.

4. Out-of-date chocolate
We know you bought it in the January sales, and no we don’t think that flaky white stuff around the edge is put there on purpose to look like snow.

3. Bath salts
They smell funny, they’re gritty, they don’t dissolve properly, and honestly, how old do you think I am? Also, they are really difficult to use when you don’t have a bath.

2. Fitness DVD
What exactly are you trying to say, pal?

1. A “re-gift” to the person who gave it to you last year
Um . . . OOPS?! I totally understand you didn’t really want that ceramic lizard-shaped tea caddy but you really should’ve just thrown that thing out with the wrapping.

Avoid these disasters and play it safe with a gift of books. Or novelty socks. Because everyone loves novelty socks.

About The Deaths of December

The Deaths of December
By Susi Holliday
Published by Mulholland Books (16 November 2017)

Publisher's description
The hunt is on for a serial killer in a thrilling festive crime novel.
It looks like a regular advent calendar. 
Until DC Becky Greene starts opening doors...and discovers a crime scene behind almost every one. 
The police hope it's a prank. Because if it isn't, a murderer has just surfaced - someone who's been killing for twenty years. 
But why now? And why has he sent it to this police station? 
As the country relaxes into festive cheer, Greene and DS Eddie Carmine must race against time to catch the killer. Because there are four doors left, and four murders will fill them...
It's shaping up to be a deadly little Christmas.

Here's a snippet of my review: The Deaths of December was a perfectly wrapped festive read for me. And I'm sure it will be a perfect Christmas stocking filler for other crime fiction fans too. Buy it!!
