Product Description

It's a New Mexico Christmas. The lights are strung, the luminarias are set along the sidewalks. Treats are abundant and Charlie Parker is getting ready for her mother-in-law's holiday visit. But there is trouble in the neighborhood and when death shows up--right next door--Charlie's bright, festive plans suddenly take a turn for the dark. Get in the spirit with this holiday novella.

"A Charlie Parker mystery is always a good read." --Southwest Book Views

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Short May 29 2010
By Marilynn Bachorik - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I didn't realize this book was a novella when I bought it on Kindle, so I was disappointed at its brevity. It's your typical Charlie Parker story--light & entertaining, but it ends abruptly. Possibly could have been developed into a full length book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Charming Chistmas Read July 11 2011
By Brian Jackson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Charlie, Drake, and Rusty are back in a charming Christmas read. I love the holidays, and nothing is better than a holiday cozy. If you liked the other Charlie Parker books than this is a must read. Decorating the yard, visits from inlaws, and even red and green chili sauce are all part of the New Mexico traditions that add layers of texture to this tale. And these's also a murder, of course. Hey, it's the summer, but this story made me feel the chill in the air that signals the start of the holidays. I highly recommend this fun read.

Be forewarned that this is a novella, so it's shorter than the usual Charlie Parker read. Still, it was well worth the price of admission.

Nearly always enjoy a book from Connie Shelton. I especially like her Charlie Parker series. I Wish there were more.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fond oif anything "Charlie Parker" March 2 2014
By racelady - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a novella attached to the Charlie Parker mystery series. As a Charlie Parker fan, and having read every novel in the series, I had to read this too. Not very fond of short stores, but if it involves Charlie and her brother and their agency, I recommend it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Book should be added to the series Dec 11 2012

Read this after reading the 13 book series. I didn't enjoy it asmuch as I could because the subject matter referred to topics introduced earlier in the series. This book should be inserted in the appropriate place in the series. Otherwise, I enjoyed the book.
