What I'm Reading Wednesday
This week I've been reading No Holly for Christmas by Julie Ford. This one is a murder mystery that features a single mom and an attorney who is trying to figure out the case.
So far, the mystery is really twisty and turny and I am loving trying to figure out the case. I like Brian McAlister and how he's trying to balance so many things going on at once, including his attraction to Holly.
Holly has been reduced in circumstances and is trying to keep herself afloat when she inadvertently gets drawn into a dangerous case that could cost her life. Luckily, she has Brian, but will that be enough with a killer after her?
I love the interactions between the characters, my only problem is that there are several point of view characters, so sometimes it's hard to keep them straight, but the mystery and attraction between the main characters is keeping me turning pages. I'll let you know what I think of the end!
Here's the back copy:
A story about how fate will carry us where we need to go whether we are willing passengers or not.
After being jilted not once, but twice by the only woman he’s ever truly loved, Brian McAlister has all but given up on relationships. Then, on special assignment for the DA's office, he steps into the middle of a politically sensitive murder case where he crosses paths with a beautiful ex-socialite-turned-social-worker, Holly Cavanaugh Winter.
Widowed, practically penniless, and reduced to shopping at Walmart, Holly is dreading the approaching holiday season. However, her angst isn't due to her husband's untimely death the previous December 25th, but to a secret that could reveal itself unless she can find a way to avoid the coming Christmas. To make matters worse, she unwittingly stumbles into the throes of Brian’s case and the manhunt for a killer who now has his sights set on her.
His case unraveling, Brian finds himself tasked with keeping Holly and her two daughters safe while bringing an assassin and the powerful man who hired him to justice.
