Cupcakes, Paws, and Bad Santa Claus - A Novella includes REAL Recipes! Annie Graceland's a baker with a pinch of psychic ability. She's a midwestern girl who's surviving a divorce while navigating the mean clean streets of L.A. When stressed, Annie's psychic gift/curse kicks into high gear. She's empathic; feels other people's lusts, urges and desires in her own body. Usually it's simple -- someone's craving chocolate, or lusting after the wrong guy. But since Annie discovered she could see and talk with ghosts, her life became a little more complicated. It's Christmas season but Annie's not feeling the holiday spirit. The ghost of Dr. Derrick Fuller, the pompous self-help author, is still nagging her to help him pass to the Afterlife. Annie's soon to be ex-husband is pushing for joint custody of her beloved cat. Her BFF takes her shopping at the mall to cheer her up. Instead they get felt up by Santa Claus and harassed by mall employees.

The Event Organizer convinces Annie to play sexy Mrs. Claus at the swanky event. When the same Bad Santa from the mall is murdered at the party, Derrick pesters Annie to track down his killer so he and Santa can pass to the Afterlife. Can Annie find Bad Santa's killer before she and others are whacked at the Furball? Can she resolve her latest debacle before her boyfriend, hottie Detective Raphael Campillio, finds it odd she keeps showing up at murder scenes? Can Annie find the light that Bad Santa and Derrick need to go to in order to pass to the Afterlife? And what about that little dog... **Includes a Gingerbread cupcake recipe donated by baker Laura DeVries from the award winning Cupcakes-A-Go-Go Cafe in Madison, Wisconsin!**
