Santa Claus: Private Detective (The Noel Kringle Chronicles #1) by Rebecca M. Senese
When no one at the North Pole takes Noel Kringle seriously, he relocates to Toronto to live his dream as a private detective. Complete with cramped office, second-hand, metal desk, creaking office chair, in front of a drafty window overlooking a parking lot. And no cases. Until Regina Marcus walks in. Her problem: disappearing donations from the Santa Charity. A simple fraud, perfect for Noel’s first case. Until more than donations disappear.
Mystery with a dash of fantasy, Noel Kringle mixes Christmas and sleuthing in a tale of magic and suspense.
