Three Reviews from Goodreads...
....With a cast of colorful characters, including a hardboiled detective, a high-heeled reporter, notorious mobsters, shady Santas, and a one very suave investigator, this reads like a script to a classic detective movie, complete with snappy dialogue full of funny clichés. It had me laughing out loud in parts, and gasping in others as the characters dodged bullets and were chased down dark alleys. The tension between Lane and Tiffany had me cringing at times, as their verbal swipes hinted at a painful past. The plot was interesting and complex; it kept me wondering up to the very end about the real villain and connections between all the clues. Great wrap up and a hopeful ending. Overall, quite an entertaining read! Recommend to anyone who enjoys a clean mystery with a nostalgic feel. Make some popcorn, cue up the Bing Crosby Christmas album, and enjoy.
....This is just a fun book, I love the plot, the love the characters and the interplay between them. It really kept me reading well into the night. This is not a blood and guts story nor is it a cozy mystery, but it holds lots of intrigue and wondering what is going to happen next. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a bit of escapism and with a good mystery attached - you won't be disappointed.
...Fast paced, complex, great plot, unexpected characters, murder, and the execution of an innocent man. A perfect novel. What more could you ask for?
