Fatal Fruitcake by Mary Kay Andrews

Blurb:
Atlanta cleaning lady/private detective Callahan Garrity, the protagonist of the author's eight critically acclaimed mysteries, returns from a long hiatus in this short story to track down the source of a killer fruitcake--and in the process discovers that some forms of Christmas spirit really can be lethal.

Also included with this short story is Mary Kay Andrews' personal recipe for a not-so-fatal fruitcake.
 
My Review: I confess...I like fruitcake and I really think it gets a bad rap. This is a very enjoyable short story with a fun resolution that shows no good deed goes unpunished. I loved how Garrity handled the situation and this story makes me curious about her other mysteries...she seems like a really fun character.
