Blog tour and Review: DASH AWAY ALL : A Merry and Bright Handcrafted Mystery by Christina Freeburn


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Merry Winters is excited for her dream-come-true moment: Being an on-site crafter for a Christmas movie. The tidings of joy are short-lived as she finds herself becoming a referee, dealing with a raging Ebenezer, participating in a bucket brigade, and finding evidence in a “murder.”

Is someone trying to stop the production or is it tied to a secret someone has on Luna Carmichael, the star of the movie and the queen of Christmas?

When Marie, Luna’s assistant, stumbles away from a car accident and dies, Merry believes the accident wasn’t quite so accidental. Was Luna or Marie the target? Merry finds more questions than answers, but one thing is certain: Everyone has an ulterior motive for being part of the production—including Marie.

After another murder, Merry wonders if the deaths are tied to a baby born long ago and abandoned. And more importantly, will Merry live long enough to find out?


A Christmas movie, a Christmas crafter, yet, somehow there is not a lot of Christmas spirits and the body count is rising. Aside from Merrie discovering this job wasn't her dream come true, there's now added tension between she and her friend, Paul. He got her the job through Marie who is now dead. Besides, he wants to move the relationship up a notch.  

Luna wrote the script and, although the star, not the director, she directed much of the activity. The Christmas script had a sinister twist, exposing a long kept secret. The same secret that lead to Merrie being recruited for the set. The twists and turns and strangled relationships move the story along. If you like disentangling lies and secrets, along with your Christmas cheer and crafts, this is a book for you.  This is the third in the series, but can easily be read as a stand alone.

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
