Why did the queen of suspense become involved with this novel? I assume it was to fulfill a lifelong goal for mother and daughter to write together or for a contract because that is all that was achieved. I've never read Carol Higgins Clark, therefore I do not know if her other books were as boring. Mary Higgins Clark, however, has kept me spellbound for hours.
The plot was mediocre -- Luke Reilly and Rosita Gonzazles are kidnapped for ransom. They are held in a leaky boat until the inept culprits get paid. The stupidity of these criminals comes through in their conversation and actions. The characters were one-dimensional and gratuitous, and it seemed their only purpose was to give names for identification while reading.
I was surprised by the immature style of writing. Even though we run into people with our name, it is not a good story approach because it can be confusing - two sets of Reilly's make for difficult character identification. Long time writers rarely make the mistake of switching the point of view (POV) multiple times within short segments or changing the verb tense from past to present while doing so. Perhaps I see this clearly because I'm an editor, but I think the sudden switches would be unwelcome by most readers. The book needed to be proofread, and may have been, but there were so many grammatical errors that I doubt if the authors even read it. Some of these items are question marks or periods immediately followed by a comma, or double period marks, and some misspellings. Every book has some proofread errors, and I, like most people, simply ignore them. There were too many to be ignored.
In my opinion, this book was published because of the author's names. Period. I do not recommend it.

I never thought I'd give a book one star, but the only reason this rates that high is because the authors used complete, grammatically correct sentences. They are obviously writing for an established audience and for the fun of a mother-daughter collaboration and the book suffers as a result. They casually gloss over descriptions of their characters, telling us that one is a writer, one a PI and one a gifted amateur sleuth who won a lottery way back when. Not having read the other books where they were introduced, I never got to know them at all or feel why I should possibly care what happened to them next.
The kidnappers are revealed at the very beginning, so there is absolutely no mystery, and the book fails equally in the areas of romance, comedy and suspense. Each step of the case is telegraphed in advance and fails to surprise or satisfy.
I suppose a die-hard fan might add this to their collections, but if you are looking for a good mystery, good thriller, good crime novel, or good suspenseful romance, just walk away.

The Mother/Daughter Author Team merges two sets of detectives in this tightly written kidnapping at Christmas saga. In 202 pages, they craft a very suspenseful "night before Christmas" mystery with an amazing set of characters including Santa and two young boys looking at life without their mama. The tension takes over and the reader is privy to the pressures of time that police work under every day. As the minutes tick, the ever delightful Alvirah and Willy and Regan Reilly join the police in pursuing clues and rushing down empty alleys. Will the incredibly inept bad guys be successful? Will sifting through the clues provide the answer in time to get Luke & Rosita to their respective homes for Christmas? Or, will grim luck take over and everything go wrong? And could romance possibly be lurking? Quite an AMAZING read, and one I highly recommend.

This is a nice, very tame Christmas Mystery involving the kidnapping of a funeral director and his driver. This is a story written by mother and daughter and it involves Regan Reilly, who is featured in Carol Higgins Clarks books. It is a very easy and fast read. I would recommend for all ages, as the violence is not that visual. It is funny between the two kidnappers and there is even a little romance in the story. They even bring a very interesting woman called Alvirah Meehan who has appeared in Mary Higgins Clarks previous books. Excellent choice for Holiday reading.
