The Summary:

Molly Malone has been working as the office manager at Hunt Investigations and has been dreaming of becoming an investigator. Especially since she accidentally spent the night with her crush, Lucas Knight, and now needs a distraction from the memory. Lucas can’t even remember the night, and is chagrined enough at the prospect that he’s willing to babysit her on this stupid Bad Santa case she’s decided to take on. The only problem is he would have loved to remember the night, and is willing to make it happen again just so he can enjoy it. . .

What I Liked:

I was looking for an easy, Christmassy read that wasn’t too Christmassy, and this book delivered. It was easy, fun, hot but not too hot, with a mystery subplot that I was pretty interested in. It was fun, which was exactly what I was hoping for. It really reminded me of the Stephanie Plum books, except better.

What I didn’t like:

Guys, it dragged. Not badly enough to DNF the book, but enough that it felt like it took forever to finish the book. It wasn’t so compelling that I needed to keep reading the book, which meant it took forever for me to finish. And the typos! It wasn’t just spelling, it seemed to book had some serious grammar errors. Whoever is editing the book, or doing the proofreading, is really sleeping on the job.


It was alright, and definitely worth it if you want something easy. It just wasn’t as great as I know a book like this could be.
