Thanks to Monday’s holiday, I’ve kinda been off my game and I’m not sure where my time has gone. But here it is Friday and I need a blog post so here’s what I’ve read over the last two weeks.
There’s a Dead Elf in Santa’s Workshop by KC Flynn. An elf is found dead in Santa’s workshop and everyone is a suspect. Of course, it’s not the real Santa but a themepark Santa. Fun and short, but with a few twists.
Be Mine for Christmas by Alicia Street and Roy Street. A single mother needs to find a job to give her son a Christmas to remember. The hero owns a Christmas tree farm and has his own reasons for rescuing her. This one had a cute paranormal twist at the end.
Dirty Little Christmas by Julie Leto. This is part of a security series. In this one, the heroine wants to surprise her parents with the return of her sister from London. Things go from bad to worse with the press of a key fob. More of a thriller than a romance, this one has nonstop action and a little Spanish thrown in for fun.
Blue Christmas by Taylor Lee. I have to say I love the Elvis song. The heroine in this is a kick-butt US Soldier that is undercover to stop human smuggling and illegal arms dealing. The hero shows up to close the deal. Some explicit sex scenes.
Undercover Christmas by RaShelle Workman. A child prodigy with the ability to sense people’s intention with a touch goes undercover in a strip club to find a murderer. There is an interesting mix of things in the story and I’m glad this is part of a series.
Catch that Santa by Karen Docter. The heroine and hero team up to prevent their respective grandparents from eloping to Las Vegas. This one reminded me of It’s a Wonderful Life in parts.
A Christmas Mission–Saving the Street Boys by Emily Nelson. Not really a romance but a very good story of a girl who’s life is changed by a car accident on the night she graduates from college. This is a Christian story but it is realistically gritty completely in keeping with the subject and the boys lives. Well done.
My Dangerous Christmastime: A Prequel Short Story (Spies in Stilletos) by Carolyn McCray. Not a romance but an action adventure story about a woman who gets caught up in a plot to blow up a Mall on Christmas eve. Very cute with James Bond gadgets and snappy dialogue. This is also part of a series.
