My teaser:

For a month before Christmas he turns his sleuthing genius to tracking down unusual wrapping papers, fine ribbons, and artistic stickers; and he spends the last two days creating beauty.

So it was that when Attorney John S. Bondling called, Inspector Queen was in his kitchen, swathed in a barbecue apron, up to his elbows in fines herbes, while Ellery, behind the locked door of his study, composed a secret symphony in glittering fuschia metallic paper, forest-green moiré ribbon, and pine cones.

-pg. 286, “The Adventure of the Dauphin’s Doll” by Ellery Queen, in Murder for Christmas edited by Thomas Godfrey
